Today is the first page….

Today is the first page of a 365 page novel. Make it good!

And since I’m feeling rather adventurous for the new year, I thought I’d reveal the cover art for my ebook of plays! The work was from my best friend, a painter and all-round awesome artist, Ashley Hunt, who now lives out in Buffalo.

final I have just a bit more work on my book (ok really I’m just waiting a few weeks to calm my nerves) but it should be up within a few weeks. And yes, I’m sure I’ll be obnoxious with shooting from the rooftops about it.

Here’s to 2014 being the year you write a best seller with your life.

Yearly writing goals

Well I’m trying to be more professional about writing.  I’m like a lot of artist I know, awesome with the creativity, but not so good with the down and out details that go with editing/publishing/etc. I write, get bored, move on to a next project, go back to the first, decide to edit for a while, and end up going round and round in a little evil circle.  So I’m setting out a few goals for the year.

1) Write a half hour ever week day and an hour on the weekends.

2) Finish my major projects (a novella and a children’s story)

3) Network more/ go to at least one writer’s conference

4) Work on my plays and poetry (at least one poem a week, one-two plays a month).

So far half way into the month of January, I have failed miserably.

But I’m not giving up hope yet!

Happy New Years and a guest blog

Have I m mentioned my love of Chica Peeps? Oh of course I have in several posts, so I’m sure you are already aware of them. If not, you should check out their website. It  embraces two of my favorite things, having female friends (everyone girl needs them for bitch fest) and writing (double-duh).

I was asked to write a guest blog and couldn’t for the life of me think of what to write, but as one of my least favorite holidays is coming up, I found the perfect opportunity to write about the evils of NYE and how I’m embracing it. So if you want to see how I’m dedicating the new year, please go visit it.

Also, since I will be on a meditation retreat and camping trip for the next two days, I’d like to take this time to wish all of my readers a very happy new year. Be safe and celebrate it in an unusual way, it makes for the best memories 🙂
