Escape from New York: 5 Things To Love About Kent, Connecticut

I live in New York City. And as everyone knows, New York is one of the most wonderful, loud, smelly, crowded, lovely, hideous, chaotic, sweaty, hip, annoying, exciting, cool places to be in the whole world. I love it. And I also occasionally hate it. And when I just plain can’t stand it anymore and need a…

A Behind The Scenes Look: Editing BECOMING BONNIE

This week, the Deb’s are chatting about the editing of our novels. As writers, we pick up tricks of the trade as we go along. We never stop learning and improving. I like that about our industry.

It’s funny, the Deb gals and I often chat throughout the day, and, the other day, I was venting to them about a distraction happening right then and there. Their response: that’s your post for this upcoming week. Unedited. So here we go,…

Jenni L. Walsh Has All the Excuses This #NanoWriMo

This week, in honor of National Novel Writing Month (#NanoWriMo), the Debs are talking about our feelings about external challenges, deadlines, writing contests, and more. I’ll just cut to the chase: I’m not doing #NanoWriMo. I like the idea. I do. And really, I thrive on pressure and tight deadlines. True story: I got my first…

Calling All Nap-Time Writers And Vampire Moms

For me, writing is less about where and more about when. One day (I’m visualizing here), I’ll be a full-time author and have hours and hours to write while my kiddos are in school. I’ll ignore the housework (I’m really good at that already), plop my butt down in my writing nook, at the dining room table,…
