This called for a selections which should be three to five minutes long with a scene containing lots of action, since people will be acting it out.

I finished my novella, The Wolf and the Necromancer It is finished. It is done.
I submitted the piece to the anthology Wednesday night a few hours before the deadline. I’m still worried that the lady in charge will contact me and say, “No, it’s crap.”
I’ve been in the same heterosexual relationship for longer than I care to share with the class. My own spot in the alphabet soup sometimes get’s muddled. People seem to forget that I choose a person, not a gender.
I’m almost at 10 thousand words in my story. It has to be at least 15 thousand, but I can’t fit the rest into 5 thousand words. Here’s to writing a longer story than anticipated.
My goal of getting lots of writing complete this week failed. I did learn some things about the manuscript I’m trying to push out though.

Is is possible for me to push out a novella in a month? Honestly, I don’t know. I signed up to be a part of an anthology that comes out in February 2022 (because I obviously don’t understand time management). I have a basic plot. I have characters with names. I have settings.

Me: So Jesi, we’re here for everyone to get to know a little more about you. Are you ready? Jesi: Yes, I am ready. Me: Tell us a little about … Read More “Meet Jesi Osman” »

Per Merriam-Webster, a meme is “an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is … Read More “Let’s Talk Memes” »
Ah, there is nothing like a little strep throat to set you back a week. Or is that a week and a half? I am not quite sure. All I know is I slept the last two weekends away. My EE gave me the bacterial infection and my 5-year-old escaped the entire sickness. We’ve watched … Read More “Small Achievements: Coming Back After a Delay” »
Timothy was not in a hurry. He was never in a hurry. He made it his life’s mission to never rush to do anything. This was not the impression others had of him. His clothes were always clean and pressed. Lunch was never forgotten at home. Timothy was predictable. Timothy is always early. Until the day he wasn’t.
Jane was Timothy’s closest friend and co-worker. In the office, they sat side by side and were perpetual teammates on projects. And Tuesday, Timothy was late.
