Pop What? by Deb Mia

Confession: I know nothing about pop culture. Confession: The only thing I know about pop culture has to do with Paris Hilton, which I read on Deb Eileen’s blog, which Deb Anna has already commented on, on Monday. Confession: So I Googled it. I actually Googled, “What is pop culture?” (I know, this just gets more pathetic by the moment). And is anybody surprised that I got 85,100,000 hits? I…

Polly & Pretty Little Mistakes by Deb Jennifer

Since I am pop-culturally-illiterate, it’s a good thing I have something off-topic I want to post about.  Then again, music, the 80s, and Showtime are all mentioned, so maybe it does qualify?  Anyway…. On May 21 at 6 pm, I’m going to be at Mo Pitkin’s in NYC for a reading and reception with two other Harper debut authors, Amy Bryant and Heather McElhatton (rhymes with tackle-latin, if you were…

Fly Girl by Deb Tish

Ever since 9/11, I’ve been especially uninterested in flying. It gave me great peace of mind to know I had no plans to go anywhere beyond a day’s drive or train ride.

I just want to know who…

First Lines by Deb Mia

First things first: the winners of last week’s post contest, “Harmony and Balance” can be found at Mia Musings. A big mahalo to everyone who entered — it was a lot of fun! One of the best tools I’ve come across to jumpstart your writing is first lines. I was first introduced to it by Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones. It’s one of the first exercises, or…

First book, first kid by Deb Jennifer

Although it’s not the most original analogy in the world, I’ve been thinking about how publishing a book is like having a kid.  All the anxiety beforehand, all the planning and preparation and daydreaming and wondering what it will really be like.   You stock up on diapers and cute little outfits, read all the books about feeding and sleeping.  You make lists of all the things to do to get…
