Killing Them Softly

I’m discussing the Killing of Darlings today over at the Waterworld Mermaid site. “So…I didn’t end up completing NaNoWriMo. Again. And let’s be honest–I didn’t really try.

Post-Apocalyptic Disaster Area

Today I am a-blogging over at The Waterworld Mermaids about the ultimate sacrifice a writer must make when he/she is trying to write a novel on deadline: HOUSEWORK. The house is going to look like hell, and you’re going to have to let it. Among other things. Read my bit of insanity here. (I have taken a picture of…
