I’ve been hinting about this for weeks (maybe months) and the day has finally arrived. Time for the the big reveal.
Cover your eyes and shout “MOVE THAT BUS”!
I’m so excited announce that I’m now part of the KILLER CHICKS blog.
Three female thriller writers, one awesome site.
C’mon over and meet the other gals!
Oh, and in case you missed it, I’m phasing out this blog and starting another (JB Lynn’s Confessions of a Crime Writer) which can be found at www.jblynn.wordpress.com
Writing Can Be Murder has been around for a couple of years now and I’m ready for a change, which is why I’m starting a new blog, JB Lynn’s Confessions of a Crime Writer.
If you’re not already, why don’t you follow me on Twitter @willkill4coffee ?
I hope you’ll follow me over to my fresh start!
Board games were big in my house when I was a kid. One of those was Word Nerd which had the tagline which said something like, “the game where it pays to plan ahead”.
I was not particularly adept at Word Nerd but it did teach me a valuable lesson. It does pay to plan ahead.
Right now I’m methodically working through the opening of my next manuscript knowing how every scene is going to affect events that occur later in the book. Talk about planning ahead!
Speaking of planning ahead…BIG CHANGES next week. There’s something to look forward to!
Send me tripping down memory lane — tell me some of your favorite games!
(Oh, and for the record, while I wasn’t the best at Word Nerd, I was a deadly Boggle player.)
not in a tree way 😉
Tell me one thing you love about your significant other.
Mine — He makes me laugh. A lot.
Reading — The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women by Gail McMeekin
Watching — not much at all
Listening — Loving Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri
Writing — Stuff for something exciting that’s happening next week (stay tuned!) and of course, I’m chipping away at my Work in Progress. Favorite line from yesterday’s writing session? “…shooed the muscled bodyguard away as though he was a pesky pigeon.”
Your turn. What’s keeping you entertained this week?
One word I hate — “ain’t” Ain’t is the equivalent of the proverbial nails on a chalkboard to me. I cringe every time I hear it.
One phrase I love — “Thank you” IMHO this is an underused phrase. More strangers should say it to one another. Family and friends should be more generous with its usage.
So tell me what words/phrases do you love or hate?
Okay, everyone keeps talking about how tuna in oil is SOOO much better so I caved and bought some.
Since, as my grandmother would say, “It’s hot as Hades out!” I think I’m going to make an easy pasta salad with it using whatever’s in the fridge and serve it on a bed of mixed greens.
Right now I’m planning on it being a combo of tuna, Barilla plus elbows, shallots, black olives, red bell pepper, cucumber, celery, carrots, fresh and sun-dried tomatoes, capers, dill, lime juice, and greek yogurt. Sounds pretty good, right?
Have you tried tuna in oil (or is it what you normally eat) and what do you make with it?
This week I spent way too much time looking at the Skull A Day blog.
What fascinated you this week?
ME (back of hand pressed to forehead, practically wailing) “I don’t understand why it’s taking me sooooooo long to get into this manuscript.”
LONG SUFFERING “You complain a lot. It’s part of your writing process.”
Reading — A book about creativity that I’m on the fence about so I’m not going to comment. Just started Plum Spooky.
Watching — Have I mentioned that I’m a fan of Tavis Smiley? If I remember to eat lunch at one, he’s my company.
Listening — Dude! If you’re trying to figure out who to kill in your next book you probably shouldn’t be listening to an endless loop of “How to save a life” by the Fray. I’m just sayin’….
Writing — having a BLAST with my new WIP!
What’s keeping you entertained?
