Interview at The Reading Cafe

Sandy from The Reading Cafe interviewed me today. I talk about the challenges I’ve faced as a writer in general and the particular challenges of trying to sell a story with a 21-year-old post grad protagonist. I share some tips for writers on getting through writer’s block. In the comments, Sandy and I chat briefly about Kristen Stewart, Snow White and the Hunstman, and The Runaways. If you’ve seen either of those films or want to chat about movies, stop by!

Goodreads Giveaway Ending

Other News…

Today was picture day at my kids’ school. The order form had no less than 60 package choices, 12 possible backgrounds, 3 poses, and 2 extras options. Wow. All those decisions before even 1 cup of coffee! Am I ridiculous in thinking that number of choices is ludicrous? Do parents really need that many options for their child’s school picture?!

While we’re on the subject of parental time sucks, here’s one I can only blame myself for. Last night, my daughter’s field hockey team was meeting to watch the high school varsity team play. I drove 45 minutes to the away game, patting myself on the back the whole time that homework had been completed ahead of time and we would arrive before the start of the game. Unfortunately, the team was playing at home. 😦 Has this happened to anyone else? Please tell me that you too read e-mails too fast and show up at the wrong places for things occasionally! 😀

Tomorrow I have another guest blogger in my Fall Into Winter Darkness guest blog series so stay tuned! Happy Thursday!
