For this week’s 15 random words I’m using: 1 word that was left in the comments of last week’s post: avocado 14 words from https://randomwordgenerator.com.

Happy Thanksgiving! (in the USA)🍗

’Til Death Do Us Part has a “what am I thankful for?” Thanksgiving scene in one of the flashbacks, and To Love and To Cherish culminates on Thanksgiving Day, likewise including one of those scenes. Oddly enough, it’s never been a part of my own family’s tradition, but I’d like to post one here. What Addison is Thankful For My wonderful editor at JMS Books, LLC who will stop cringing when …

Getting a Little of Myles’ POV

If you follow along here on my blog at all, you’ve probably seen that I’ve got a little series of posts where I’m rewriting the flashback scenes from ’Til Death Do Us Part to be from Sam’s POV (FYI, there’s another one scheduled for tomorrow). Although To Love and To Cherish does have a couple flashback scenes, they’re in the form of Nash’s dreams, and they don’t involve the other MC. However, …

Random Prompt Word Ficlet

I’m doing something different for my Flash Fiction Friday post this week. Instead of an image I’m going with randomly generated prompt words. I’m also not limiting myself to precisely 100 words. Years and years ago when I first started writing, I published a few stories at Torquere Press. Back then we all had LiveJournal accounts, and the TQ authors could sign up to host the Torquere Social Community on …

Coffee, Anyone?

No, thank you. I love the smell, but I’ve never acquired a taste for the stuff. I feel like a bit of an outsider with all the coffee memes I see on my Facebook feed every day. My coffee aversion isn’t simply due to caffeine avoidance. I don’t drink decaf, either. I can deal with tea, but don’t particularly favor it. If I’m going to drink something hot, it’s going to …

What if…? Alternate Conclusions.

I enjoyed writing ’Til Death Do Us Part. The research was fun, as was coming up with various ideas for how to make certain things happen in the story. Stuff had to happen to Henry on the island, and there were many possibilities from which to choose. Sam had to meet Nash, and there were options for that, too. I could have had a mutual friend set them up. Maybe …

NaNoWriMo? Not for me…NaNoWriNO!

NaNoWriMo? NaNoWriNO! I did it once, and that was enough for me. No, I didn’t make the goal. No, I’m not pouting about it because I “failed.” My one attempt was Camp NaNoWriMo this past April. I was in the early stages of writing To Love and To Cherish. Speed writing and cranking out a super crude first draft to be cleaned up once the whole thing is done is just not …
