DCMD Update while aflood with boxes!

Despite being sick and aflood with boxes (still!), I managed to finish Don’t Call Me Daughter. It’s way too long, yet I felt like I wrote it very compactly. Still, I need to cut a good 100 pages from it.
The printed manuscript weighs more than my laptop! Still, another book down!

My Secret is Coffee Shops (writing, writing everywhere!)

Despite all the boxes and chaos of finding a place to live and moving into it and out of temp housing, I managed to get some writing done in the past month.

In fact, I finished Amaskan’s Blood! Now to edit the beast. It’s currently sitting at 308 pages in length.
My secret has been coffee shops. They are everywhere in Seattle. You can’t go a block without one. Being able to people watch while writing is inspiring. Wrote two short stories about the characters that visit my local haunt. Maybe I’ll post them up here once they are out of rough draft stage.

Happy New Year! I got a city!

May 2013 be a good one, wherever you are!



I am currently standing on the roof of temp housing in Seattle, 1 block from the Space Needle, with my wonderful husband whose job brought me to the best city in the US! We’re freezing up here, but we’ve got the best spot in the house for watching the fireworks show!

The tail end of 2012 brought me my dream job and my dream city. It brought my husband his dream job as well. I hope 2013 is as wonderful, and may it be wonderful for you all as well!

Seattle! It’s a city!

We’re moving to Seattle!

A new job opportunity for my husband means that I can retire from teaching to dedicate myself to writing full time! This is an awesome opportunity, and I’m excited to be able to focus on my career. Not to mention doing so in a beautiful city! I’ve always wanted to return to Seattle. Now I get to just that!
