A Very Quick Look at Playster

I wanted to test out Playster. Here are my results:

I got into the 30-day free trial, and was so disappointed with the user experience I was out less than 30 minutes later.

My interview on 'Create a Story You Love'

My interview on 'Create a Story You Love'

I had an amazing time talking to Lorna Faith on her 'Create a Story You Love' podcast. We talk about my writing career, about my process of writing a book in 30 days, and of course all about Draft2Digital. If you're an author, or ever wanted to be, this is a great look behind the scenes!

Muse

Muse

We put a lot of pressure on our passions. We demand they pay for our lives. And sometimes, when we're lucky or blessed, the work we love to do ends up being the same work that pays our bills. But sometimes, all that pressure takes the joy out of the thing we love doing.

That's where Megan finds herself. And it's from that dark and lonely place that someone reaches out to her. And Megan's life will never be the same.

Thank you - and the Sunday Question

Thank you - and the Sunday Question

From bad days to complete train wrecks, life sometimes throws everything at you at once. And on those days, doing anything productive seems impossible, and being positive about your life seems like a waste of time. So what do you do to get past that? I'm asking for a friend.

What I did when you weren't looking - Week of 03-06-16

Coming to Ontario from Houston was an experience very different than what I had expected. The clichés I'd grown up with weren't quite as noticeable, and didn't mean as much.

All in all, this place felt more like home than I had expected. Which is weird, eh?

Covernotes

Covernotes

For an author, people are gold. 

Seriously, I can't make up characters half as interesting as those I meet in real life.

Covernotes, in Newmarket, ON, made sure I had plenty of new characters to create with later. 

Bless 'em, every one.

Houston and Ontario

Houston and Ontario

When you're in another country, you sort of expect it will feel different. You look for those things that tell you plainly that you're not at home.

Sometimes, though, things just feel so familiar that it's like you never left. 

Ontario and Houston aren't so different from each other. 

Who knew?
