One of my favorite procrastination passtimes is reading quotes and collecting ones that strike a cord with me. someone on the Cerriwden Authors Blog asked How do you write? well my other half and probably better half is a panster. Her characters get their fingers on the keyboard and away they go! Me? Well I used to think I was a panster too, but now am realizing i need some direction. at least three scenes in advance. My characters like to know where they are going and at least a few turns in advance so that quick right turn isnt missed. I started reading the book The Writer's Book of Matches by the staff of Fresh Boiled Peanuts ( and came across a new favorite quote and way to describe my plotting panster ways...

"Writing is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way."~E.L. Doctorow

Speaking of Cerridwen press blog.. we posted there today, if you have time stop over and leave a comment! Stop by anytime, the writers there have some great things to say! the link is on the side>>>

May you always find the right turns and if you miss one may the detour by an exciting one!

"This I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual."
~John Steinbeck

*Tosses cyber confetti*

Heart on His Sleeve is finished!

Of course, I loved Mari’s additions! I wrapped up Waryn’s scenes and sent the ending off for critique.

I’ve got my fingers crossed we submit by Friday, next Monday the latest.

This evening after dinner I plan to tackle the rest of my chapter in Lukewarm Psyche. Oh yes, I hope to have work waiting for Mari’s ever fertile mind tomorrow. ;)

Until later~

Take a look...

Heart On His Sleeve.
8,665 / 12,000

It’s getting very close! I plan to tackle Lukewarm Psychic next! I need to finish up a chapter so I can zip it over to Mari. And Mari has sent me our draft synopsis for Valiant that she critiqued.

So, I’m going to be very busy and so is Mari!!!

Until later~
