*glances up* So I felt like quoting an old Mary Chapin-Carpenter song as my title :o) And Monday’s actually been fairly good to me so far. Wrapped up the Dreaded Synopsis workshop and the Agent one this afternoon and got some nice feedback from them. Finished up the intro to emotion and got that all posted to the list. So if there’s anyone out there who still wants in on Emotion, let me know and I’ll get an invite your way! Still no word on any of my queries (sent a few out Friday) though I’m not expecting much. Sort of at the point whereRead More →

Can I say I’m really glad its almost over???First though the weather was finally awesome up here, in the mid-high twenties (C) for us canucks. I got a little tan/burn on my shoulders so I’m not as pale as usual. Went out yesterday and got some plants with mom for her planters and grabbed a few for myself (some nice dahlias in a rusty color).With any luck I’ll actually be able to seed my pots outside this year in May and not end of June/July like some years. So anyways yesterday afternoon we came home and found the phone line down. Gone. Just a buzzingRead More →

So I’m now doing THREE workshops this weekend. :o)Yup. Dreaded Synopsis. Agents. And now Emotions. That should be interesting. Going through all my printed notes with a pen and paper trying to get it all together. I have a general idea, but teaching emotion is a hard thing to do – even harder than synopses.So looks like my weekend’s pretty booked up now. Kinda looking fwd to it. Though I’m a little nervous since these are my first workshops. But one of my best friends read them over and said she was impressed so I should be okay.~LisRead More →

(looks up) Yeah great title lol My brain’s a bit fried today, so excuse the lack of uh, well everything about this post lol Found this on another blog and thought I’d do it: Your Birthdate: January 3 Being born on the 3rd day of the month is likely to add a good bit of vitality to your life.The energy of 3 allows you bounce back rapidly from setbacks, physical or mental.There is a restlessness in your nature, but you seem to be able to portray an easygoing, “couldn’t care less” attitude. You have a natural ability to express yourself in public, and you alwaysRead More →

Alright a suitable title. :o) I read Olga’s blog this morning and she reminded people she’s doing her workshop on knowing her characters next weekend, so I figured I’d do the same. I’m doing two, the Dreaded Synopsis and Agent Hunting. So I’ve got a few rough points out for both, but what I figured was do a bit of research on here. Anything you all would like to see covered in these? Particularly in the Agent one? I guess I’ll touch briefly on query letters (though one of the other ladies is doing a workshop that touches on that too) so I don’t wantRead More →

I just feel like rambling right now :o) So, on the writing front, I’m really sorta blahed out. I don’t feel like doing any real writing, (that one idea is still percolating in my head and besides it has Cary Grant in there somewhere, I gotta love that) and looking at my f.f. revisions, I don’t know that I feel ready to jump in there (though I am in a Nick mood again) so we’ll see, probably break down and do some writing sometime, somewhere down the road this week. RAW’s on tomorrow night and I can only hope the blasted vcr will decide toRead More →
