I’m back!

Onion looking thoughtful, don't be fooled
Onion looking thoughtful, don't be fooled

Well, first of all, this is still going on:

Wanna make out?

Wanna make out?


Onion is now about 7 months old, and has completely taken over boyfriend duties. Last night at 3am he went for a full-on makeout session which included handholding, face stroking, and jamming his nose in my eye. Also, dude purrs so loud its like being in bed with a chainsaw. (He’s sitting on my boobs right now, I guess my lap is too far away?)

This actually worked out for both of our schedules because I didn’t have to get up for work this morning. Because as of last week, Sirius XM and I have parted company. It was a great job and I’ll miss them.

Moving on!

After the initial panic/migraine/shingles (I react to stress LIKE A BOSS) I took stock and did the only sensible thing.

No, after that!

I am delighted to be writing for my friend Meryl Moss for her site, Book Trib. In fact, did you watch the Google+ Hangout I did with Jay Ascher? We talked about Banned Book Week, and his frequently challenged novel 13 Reasons Why. Neither of us had ever done a video chat before and I think it went very well! Plus, people can only see you from the chin up, so it’s Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day!

So its pretty much like this at my house all the time now…

    First of all I want to say great blog! I hadd a quick question whihh
    I’d lioke to aask if you do not mind. I was interested to find outt how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however iit just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually wasted simply just ttrying to figure out hhow to begin. Any ideas or tips?

    Many thanks!

    • Thanks for the kind words! I really don’t have a mind-clearing method, although I am the world champion at screwing around before I buckle down. Usually I have a scene in mind before I begin. I suppose it’s helpful that I’m wokring on a multi book project which is rarely far from my thoughts. I’ve heard it said – and I do follow this rule- that you should just start. Just start, doesn’t matter what you’re writing. Once you’ve begun, the hard part is over. I hope that makes sense!
