    Things I’ve Not Written On The Page…

    It’s been a long time since I sat down and actually written something for the blog on the site.  Since my dog passed away, I have been doing a lot of soul searching, and trying to decide where I should be going next, what I should be doing.  My heart was shattered by the loss of that small, fuzzy, loving dog. More than I care to admit most days. With that happening and the fact that my father is still being treated for cancer, well, my heart is still hurting and it’s hard to focus some days.  Introspection can be a double edged sword, and I am definitely working on…

  • Updates to Plans…

    Yes, I know it’s been a while. Life has definitely kept me busy. So I wanted to sit down and give you all some updates to my ongoing plans. Backstage Pass is still happening, but we’ve changed some things about it. It’s going to be a podcast and a vlog soon. I am also in the middle of preparing to move everything into a studio.

Turns out, yes there is. I’m also pretty sure I know who the nay-sayers were and well, it comes down to tough luck to them. They’ll probably hate listen anyway, which pays off for me in…

  • Attack of the PlotBunny

    A plot bunny is a story idea that refuses to go away until it is written. The term’s origin is unknown but is known to predate NaNoWriMo. Because plot bunnies tend to multiply quickly, the term is thought to be related to the oft-quoted John Steinbeck quote about ideas and rabbits. Wikiwrimo – PlotBunny Plotbunnies are evil little creatures. They look all innocent and all of a sudden, where you had one idea, you now have twenty. They also attack without warning. You’ll be listening to your favourite podcast or song and boom idea. And it won’t go away until it is written. I remember a tradpub author going off…
