10-Day Poetry Challenge Day 3 Limerick
In the beginning, when I gave myself two weeks to record my audio book I hadn’t given a thought to the long editing and publication process. I thought it would take the whole two weeks to finish getting one recording from the beginning to the end of my book. However, since Day 4 was so … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 5
I stepped into the studio ready to go. I’d warmed up my vocal chords beforehand by singing while getting ready and was able to do most of my narration with only one or two repetitions of each paragraph. My deadline was still a heavy weight on my shoulder but not because I wasn’t sure I … Continue reading Stereo Goals Day 4
The first thing I needed to decide was how to produce my audio book. As I mentioned in my previous post, a professional producer and voice actor are pretty expensive. It’s one of the major factors in the high cost of audiobooks in comparison to their print and digital counterparts. Narrating my own work cuts … Continue reading Stereo Goals- Day One

Shark Week is officially over and that means it's time for me to get back to work. If only my brain would get on board. All my current story ideas are totally stuck in Shark territory. Sexy marine biologists in dangerously fishy situations here I come. I probably won't be writing these to publish but … Continue reading Shark Week Blues
When I get in one of my writing moods nothing can tear me away from my laptop. Which is why having a fully stocked snack section on my desk is a must, otherwise I'd probably starve to death on my longer writing binges (usual two to three days long). Sleeping is generally optional and even … Continue reading Snack Attack!
Yes! I did it! I finished my first draft of Claude's Conquest: Maura's Men Book Two!!!! I'm so excited I'm doing a little dance as I type! It's the weekend so I'm going to enjoy this writers high a bit longer before the reality of the editing process sets in. I also have a … Continue reading Because I’m Happyyyyyyy!!!!!
https://twitter.com/StellaLove4life/status/465970458941075456 Ever had that one chapter that was crucial to your plot line but you just couldn't find the perfect place to put it? That's my latest dilemma as a novice writer. There are about four different places I could put it but they all are somehow off. Putting it at the beginning makes other … Continue reading Feng Shui or Forget About It???
