When to Say When!

Happy Friday everyone!

Over at the Scribes, I tackle plotting and knowing when it’s time to start writing – Stick a Fork in it and Call it Done!.

And, in other news, has anyone heard that Amazon is purchasing Goodreads?

While you ponder that tidbit, I leave you with the hamburger that defeated Scar:

The hamburger from Hell!

Do the Unexpected!

Today I’m talking about some awesome writerly advice from Orson Scott Card – Never Do What They Want.

I’m happy to say that Mystic Storm is really done. Whew! I’m going to take a mental break for a day or two, then I’m off to plot another story or two.

Have wonderful weekend! And enjoy the adorable photo of my cat.

Finally!

I did it. Last Sunday I finished the draft of Mystic Storm. But the work isn’t over yet. Before I can share Zephyr’s story with my trusted first readers, I have to read through it and make sure there aren’t any gaping plot holes.

In the meantime, I’m at the 7 Scribes today  – We Are Family.
