If I am struggling with a particular scene or character, I will move to researching a historical event or term that I need for an upcoming scene or dialogue so that I don't lose time on my project completely. Usually with a short break and with accomplishing other aspects of my project(s), I am able to continue writing within a day. I find this motivates me more than leaving the project altogether. (less)

I would tell my younger writing self to definitely schedule in 1 hour of writing per night in order to stay focused on the craft even during busy times. I would also encourage her to be brave and always write her truth, even if it's difficult.(less)

Most books are set in far-away places, or fantastical lands that don’t exist. What a welcome surprise, therefore, to find myself immersed in a story where so many of the locations bought back a memory or two. Down the Lane is set in Niagara Falls, a ...more

“They were just being friendly," I said more softly, reaching out to touch James on the arm. I suddenly found myself lying on my side on the floor and realized in shock that James had shoved me - hard. He was looking down at me, his teeth gritted and his eyes flashing.”
J.G. MacLeod, Abalone

“I had come down on the same arm that James had grabbed in the car and it throbbed. I pulled off my sweater to look at it in the mirror and winced when I noticed finger marks on my forearm and a large purple bruise already forming on my elbow; I could only imagine what it would look like tomorrow when it really started to turn colour.”

“​“Ye can ask God tae forgive ye,” Ferghus suggested,”

“As the bus pulled away from the curb, James raised his hand in a small wave; he was still standing there when we reached the end of the street, like a beacon on a lighthouse warning tall ships to be careful in the fog.”
J.G. MacLeod, Abalone

“I know," I said, "but there's something about James that draws me in. I can't explain it." I shrugged my shoulders.
"Well, I can," Jan said with frustration, "it's called abuse."
I was shocked. "What?" I managed to say.
"You heard me," Jan replied. "James controls everything you do. He says jump and you ask how high.”

“Their door was open. My mother was kneeling on the floor, her body racked with uncontrollable sobbing. There was a broken glass on the floor beside her. My father was standing at the far end of the room with his back to the doorway. Both of his hands were pressed against the wall and his head was bent. When I crossed the threshold he turned and scowled. "Go back to bed, Ellen," he commanded.”
