Follow @heyjomachin on instagram and read all the great cute meets!
@heyjomachin is doing a thing on instagram this week for all of us writers. Today’s prompt was a meetcute where they are BOTH doing something illegal and it CAN’T be homicide, drugs/drinking, OR stealing. Talk about restrictions! Plus, instagram doesn’t allow for a long story… Here’s my try… #meetcuteJanuary #amwriting #romance I rolled past the […]
Are you participating in #NaNoWriMo? Here’s some #MondayMotivation – add a character who “gets” people. In my book, he’s Carter, the new guy with crazy intuition and a sexy southern Matthew McConnaughey drawl. His voice is low and lazy, but he seems to understand people right away. Perceptive, intuitive, a quiet strength kind of guy. […]
I love NaNoWriMo – the National Novel Writing Month. Every November thousands of people logon to nanowrimo.org and join others in their quest to write a story, aiming for 50,000 words in one month. Join me… I’ll be writing AJ and Marina’s story this year and I’m super excited. I’m a plotser – I start […]
Why you need a critique group, partner, beta reader, editor, SOMEONE ELSE to read your work before you publish or query… And how to find a critique partner, group, or beta reader. I call it the Kandinsky effect, but really, it’s about your personal lens, you know, how you view the world from YOUR perspective. […]

King Arthur – Legend of the Sword – My Honest Review It’s brilliant. It’s worth the price of admission, your time, and you’ll regret not seeing it on a big screen. It didn’t do great on its opening weekend and I’ll tell you why I think that is – and then why it’s probably one […]
I’m taking a writing class by @sgredling and I love this exercise! She’s given us writing prompts, but in a twist we have to use ONE prompt, and flesh it for different genres. So… here’s my first attempt: Prompt: After a head injury, a young man can hear the color blue speaking. Everything blue speaks […]
Dear @StephenKing, You’re killing me. -A Darling Killing off the Adverbs – But, I really, really, really like them. “Adverbs are not your friends,” wrote the man responsible for my wedging a chair under the door knobs of my closet keeping kid-eating clowns contained along with Hammer-pants, scrunchies, […]
So, you got no love during #PitMad and you’re feeling horrible! The world has just verified that you are, in fact, NOT a writer – OR – take a breath, it more likely that maybe you need to work on your marketing. Have a glass of wine and let your Auntie Tobi give you some […]
Meet Joe. Joe is fun, flirty, sexy, and so much more complicated… Actually the model’s name is Rodiney Santiago and he has an amazing website at http://rodineysantiago.com/ or here on twitter. Yum. He’s also the inspiration for my latest hero in my work-in-progress, tentatively titled Still Waters. Of course, in the book he’s got more tattoos, works […]

Jason’s blames himself for her brother’s accidental death. Unable to face her, he left and now he returns years later […]
