I might walk around my yard and talk to the chickens, eat some chocolate, or wrap up for the day and start fresh in the morning. Sometimes, I do a free write or try the scene from a different point of view. I don't let myself stay stuck for very long. (less)

I love that my stories are starting to be published so that others can read them. Getting published was the only thing on my bucket list, and I've been able to do that. It's a dream come true. (less)

Stephen King
“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Elle Rush
“Why would you go on a pirate dinner cruise?” He had to know.

Her jaw dropped. “Are you kidding me? Why wouldn’t you go on a pirate dinner cruise? There’s pirates and dinner. And you get to say ‘argh’ and ‘matey’ while drinking lots of rum without anyone looking at you funny.” Her breath caught. “Maybe one of them will even have a real parrot!”

Perhaps he’d overestimated her—just a little.”
Elle Rush, Puerto Vallarta Sunsets

“Suddenly, Lisa pulled her face out of the water and her legs started flailing, the long flippers on her feet dropping so low their movement raised sand from the ocean floor. Hank lifted his head to check on her.

“What’s wrong?”

“Holy crap,” she sputtered. She stared at him with wide blue eyes. “I think I found Nemo!”
Elle Rush, Cuban Moon
