Sometimes I'll see something in the news and wonder what would happen if it went another way. Sometimes ideas pop into my head while I'm trying, and failing, to fall asleep at night or for a nap. For Dying Embers, I wanted to write suspense that stood out, I asked myself how I could do that. With Accidental Death, it was a combination of 'what if' and then following the rabbit trail where it lead. For my next book, Wish in One Hand, I wanted to write an urban fantasy but using a different magical species - so I hit on genies, then I gave the heroine a mission and found a way to screw it up. In the end, the result became a paranormal suspense (because really, I can't seem to help but add suspense or mystery to any story). (less)

So I try not to think about it, read about it, ponder the possibility, etc. I once got it so bad I didn't write anything for 9 months. The only answer then was to just sit down and start writing stuff - for good or ill. Also, someone somewhere gave me the following advice: "Give yourself permission to suck." That idea has done very well for me over the years. You can fix sucky writing, but you cannot fix what you haven't put down on the page.(less)

Since I'm at a loss for what to post here, here's a link to someone else's brilliance...

I saw this post over at The Mad Genius Club yesterday and thought I'd share it here.  It's got some really good tips if you really don't wanna sell books.  (Or things to avoid if your goal is actually selling books.  But who'd wanna do that?  :smirk:)

We won't talk about the things I've done to not sell book... Read more of this blog post »

Different. Strange. Fun. And totally awesome. I really enjoyed reading this story. Full of twists and snark and humor, but not total fluff. I picked this up as a free deal the other day, but I'm buying the next one. I'm hooked.

Ooo, I do love hard-boiled crime novels! This one doesn't disappoint. Mike Shayne solves the case, saves the girl, and catches the bad guys. Without angst or apology. So good.

“That’s the ultimate anonymity. Me in a cabin in the woods somewhere. I imagine I’ll go to town once a week for groceries, make small talk with pleasant people that I will never get any closer to, and then go home.” “It sounds lonely,” he said. In the back of his head, he wondered if she didn’t have the right idea. “You can be lonely in a room full of people. And perfectly content in a cabin by yourself. It all depends on what you’re looking for in life.”

“If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game

“Fish and Wildlife wants to fine us for killing a giant mutant Tennessee River catfish because it was endangered. Sure it had just crawled up on land and eaten some teenagers, but it was still an endangered species.”

“If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.”

Hi! I'm glad you posted that you had a Goodreads account. Thanks for the heads-up. I don't know how much you'll see from me, though. I need to spend more time on here, but everything else gets in the way.
