Today is a special day for me and my beloved, Jez. It’s our 25th-year together-versary (totally a word)–and tomorrow is our 19th wedding anniversary. I’d had today’s word down for a TiS: Running the Asset post, but I kept thinking about Jez’s site each time I sat down to write the…Keep reading
I swithered over posting this one or not, mainly because of the length of the post’s title. Ultimately, I decided to share this because it’s one of those phrases that I don’t think twice about using when I’m writing.

That’s the first half of Act III done! I’m taking the next two days off, and I’ll try my hardest to not run around the house clapping and giggling like an absolute eejit. But, I think that ship has already sailed. Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now at 130,577 words!Keep reading
This week’s word is super easy. I had a different word in mind for today, but the snippet was full of spoilers 😬 And, as I can’t search for just italics in Scrivener, I thought I’d cheat and go with a nice easy one. Here’s the snippet… (unedited first draft)Keep reading
