One of the big drawbacks in having moved the blog to the new hosting is that I orphaned some 450 email followers. However, if you want to get the blog delivered to your email every day (when I post, anyway!) then that’s pretty easy to set back up. If you look below the text of… Read More Getting it Easy
I’m trying to move the blog to my hosting rather than WordPress. Unfortunately, that isn’t going smoothly.
We were talking about books we enjoyed, and books we hated, that we’ve read in years past, and I was reminded on one I’d fogotten, but had loved as a young girl. Sweet, silly, but very much in line with what I was as a girl: a tomboy, a loner, and as self-sufficient as I… Read More Remembering Books
I’ve submitted one of my covers for a much-needed critique. There are pearls of wisdom here, not only in the blog post, but in the comments, so keep reading to the very end.
I took a two-week hiatus from my Amazing Stories Magazine posts while I was moving, but I’m back into the routine with an interview with Michael J Sullivan. He’d reached out to me after the short series of self-published author interviews I had conducted a while back, and as he is a hybrid author, I… Read More Back at ASM
Crossposted from Amazing Stories: A recent conversation about self and independent publishing led to me voicing my thoughts on what to do once the book is released. This will also hold true even for the traditionally published, as the publishers provide them with less and less support. We must be able to be businessmen, not… Read More The Dreaded M-Word
Except I’m really tired, and I have a major exam tomorrow, and I worked all weekend, and… A snippet from my work in progress, Pixie Noir. The woman who answered the door was wearing the most amazing shirt. Knitted silk, I think, clung to her like a second skin, and even though it was blue,… Read More For No Reason
We’ve been asked how we are weathering all the snow, and we’re happy to say all is well. Starts are coming along nicely, the greenhouse is standing in spite of all the snow, and somewhere under the new snow, there are little green daffodil shoots!
I created this picture after being sent a definition a while back, and it fits a conversation on Sarah’s blog today, so here’s the image, and the sentiment fits me!
So, I’m still not going to snippet from Pixie Noir, although I did write 830 words on it yesterday (in 40 minutes! I can do this…) and will hopefully finish it within the timeline. The reason I’m going to snippet from something else is, this one will be published soon. And I’m that kind of… Read More Snippet: Vulcan’s Kittens
It occurs to me that when I comment or otherwise chime in on other’s blogs these days, there may be some confusion when you check me out and find a farm blog (or these days, slice of life family blog). I also write, and that blog is here: http://cedarwrites.wordpress.com. My name really is Cedar, that’s not… Read More The Other Blog
This is cross-posted from Amazing Stories, where my blog posts appear weekly. Tomorrow, if anyone would like (I realize about 5 of you read this blog, and I’m related to half of you) I will post a snippet of a story. Dont’ know which one, yet, probably not the one I’m working on, as it’s… Read More Interview with John McClure
