I’ve always called Michigan home, despite some deep family roots in Kentucky. When I was five, I asked for a typewriter for Christmas because I knew I wanted to write books. I realized then that the blank white space needed words, and panicked. These days the blank white space is on a computer screen instead of paper, and there’s usually less panic and better spelling. Usually.

My first love has always been for stories that have larger-than-life heroines and heroes fighting an epic battle against evil or having an epic romance–or even better, both. If I’m not writing, I’m feeding my story addiction any way I can: raiding Netflix, pillaging my local bookstore and library, and (most recently) tearing my way through the comics archive at Marvel

So we’ve made it to week 2. If you’re on schedule, you should hit 16,670 words sometime today.

I am not on schedule. I am SO AMAZINGLY behind schedule. It’s not a time factor, or laziness. It’s fear. I am terrified of the story that I am trying to tell.

So instead of telling it, I’ve been researching. And reading writing books. In prepping for this book I’ve read GMC: Goal, Motivation, and Conf...

“You’re saying you think one of my staff might be a terrorist.” She kept her face neutral, but couldn’t resist asking the next question, like poking at a sore tooth. “Is this the first organization you’ve visited?” “Yes.”
Lisa Nicholas, As Lost as I Get

“It wasn’t the first time he’d met someone that made him want to kneel, to crawl, to submit, but it was the strongest reaction he’d had in a long time. And she had no qualms about manhandling him. His wrists still ached from where she’d grabbed him, and he wanted to savor that.”
Lisa Nicholas, The Farther I Fall

“Buttercup's mother whirled on him. 'Did you forget to pay your taxes?' (This was after taxes. But everything is after taxes. Taxes were here even before stew.)”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

“ The Lake Isle

O God, O Venus, O Mercury, patron of thieves,
Give me in due time, I beseech you, a little tobacco-shop,
With the little bright boxes
piled up neatly upon the shelves
And the loose fragrant cavendish
and the shag,
And the bright Virginia
loose under the bright glass cases,
And a pair of scales not too greasy,
And the whores dropping in for a word or two in passing,
For a flip word, and to tidy their hair a bit.

O God, O Venus, O Mercury, patron of thieves,
Lend me a little tobacco-shop,
or install me in any profession
Save this damn’d profession of writing,
where one needs one’s brains all the time.”
Ezra Pound

Lisa Nicholas, The Farther I Fall

“I'm a sociopath. I look normal, but I'm not. I'm smarter, better, and freer, because I'm not bound by rules, law, emotion or regard for you.”
Lisa Scottoline, Every Fifteen Minutes
