My blog is a bit of everything – a recent post is called “Women’s Fiction for Girlfriends” – I describe myself as “Writing in Flip Flops” and my novels can include all ages but focus on women in their late 30s/over 40. Anyway, here’s a link to this post:August 17, 2011 at 4:49 am #4272
My blog has several regular features – Sharing Saturdays where I share some of my favorite online resources for other writers, and readers; Six Sentence Sunday is a group of bloggers who all post six sentences from their work on Sunday mornings (more info is at http://www.sixsunday.com); Book Reviews go up on alternating Mondays; Writer Wednesdays are all related to the craft of writing. Other things get worked in between the features pretty regularly.
This week’s Writer Wednesday is “6 Steps to Diversity in Fiction”. You’ll find it here: http://wp.me/p1w1MU-2x after 8am EST Aug 17.

Not exactly a blog entry, but wanted to share this anyway.
Recently I started putting together a “mood board” for my story on Pinterest (www.pinterest.com) which got me back into the habit of compiling visual references for my story. I picked up the Pinterest hint from one of the Camp NaNoWriMo boards; apparently a lot of writers do use the site to put together graphic pegs of certain ideas for their stories.
Before Pinterest, I used to put my character boards together on Polyvore (www.polyvore.com), which operates in the same way as Pinterest: go to the site, pick out a few graphics that appeal to you, put together on a collage. I’ve found Polyvore to be a lot more work-intensive, though, since it still requires a little more know-how on graphics and proper layout.
Here’s my current board on Pinterest: http://re.pn/b/KSmj
And an old Polyvore set that I once put together, for a YA story/screenplay that never got past the outline stage: http://www.polyvore.com/my_time_in_eden/set?id=26223130September 16, 2011 at 3:08 pm #4282

My blog’s a mish-mash of fact, fiction and trivia.October 26, 2011 at 10:29 pm #4283
From time to time, I like to post a recurring feature called One Great Thing… basically recommendations for things I’ve personally found to be great. Could be a book, an old movie… anything, as long as I thought it was really great. The latest is about Martin Scorsese’s new documentary on George Harrison. It was surprisingly moving and I learned this…
“Learn to love other people. Even if it’s just one. That person is God. This is why we have friends, why we marry, why we have children. And it’s probably why we have enemies too. Everyone is a gift to help us learn. And we are all in a position to do it. So keep practicing.”
Anyway, it’s right here, stop in an say “hi!”December 7, 2011 at 7:27 pm #4284
Dreaming of Helix
Funny thing last night, I dreamed about my book.`I was my main character, Sora. I can’t remember most of the dream, but that isn’t the important part. What is important is what it made me feel. I woke up inspired to write, excited and eager, feeling like I had accomplished something. What I don’t know.
I do remember leaning over a table with plans in front of me, and shadowy figures all around me and the table. pointing places out, arguing with those around me we made plans to strike.
I remember a passionate kiss under the moonlight, his strong arms around me, shielding me from the cold of night. The smell of sand and dry air on the breeze hung all around us. completely alone I stared into his dark green eyes.
Then we rode out that morning on giant lizards. We made camp behind a large rock formation before dark, our small group there only for reconnaissance. During the night and during my time to keep watch I herd faint footsteps. They tried to hide there approach, but I was ready for them. Quietly and slowly I woke my companions. leaving our sleeping bags there we ducked around the opposite corner waiting for them to get closer. Coming out from our hiding place we attacked. subduing the three men quickly we tied them up to ask them a few questions.
That is it, all I can remember. It is funny how real it felt when I first woke up. I have had some strange dreams before, but didn’t think I would dream about my book. Not to mention none of this is even in my book. I can’t be the only one to dream about there book. I think some of it would make a good addition to the book, it had to be my subconscious trying to tell about my book.
So tell me what do you think about dreams, and what they can tell you?
