Tell me something

There are only two rules about what you tell me: it has to be about writing, and it has to be happy. I’m in the mood for hearing other people’s good news. I know, I know, I never have the comments open so no one will know they can leave a comment, and chances are it will be silent as the grave around here.

But let’s not leave it silent. Let’s make it noisy with good things about writing, just for today. I’ll start.

1. Next week I have three uninterrupted days in which to finish all the projects I’ve been procrastinating on, and possibly get a few new pieces ready to go out.

2. I’ve been looking over my revisions of Wren and feeling kind of excited about getting it to a couple of readers.

3. New ideas! They have come to me!

4. M.E. Garber said nice things about Phoenix here. (I suppose I should point out that there are also reviews available at Amazon.)

Also, M.E. Garber is participating in the Clarion West Write-a-thon this year. Right now, as a matter of fact. Consider stopping by her blog and leaving her some encouragement. A-thons of all sorts are so much better when people cheer you along.


  1. Something I’m really happy about…. I finally have an ending for the novel I’ve been working on for more than four years. I swear I had tears of joy in my eyes when I realised what I was going to write, haha.

  2. I’ve never commented here before. Not sure if this is the type of thing you’re looking for but I finally figured out how to end a short story that’s been rattling around in my head for a very long time. 🙂

  3. Lydia, the answer is not very often. Twice, as of yesterday. I’m thinking I may change that and have a weekly post open to comments. Haven’t quite decided yet.

  4. For what it’s worth I’d like to see more posts open to comments here. 🙂

    • Thanks. 🙂 It’s a work in progress.

      I’m also fairly available by email, so if there’s ever anything here that you either want a private conversation about, or want to recommend for public discussion, please feel free to drop me a line.

  5. Thanks for the shout-out! As for good writing things, I love how my life experiences influence my writing, making it uniquely ‘mine,’ without effort. Like yours make your own writing unique. Your turn-of-phrase, your verb, the tiny detail only you saw and then wrote into your story…bliss.
