It’s Finals Week, Y’all!

Hey everyone! For this term of MFA, it’s finals week – both my projects are due tonight by midnight. The good news is, I turned the last one in yesterday afternoon. The bad news? Well…my “N” key has given up the ghost and there’s no way to fix it, and I had to order aContinue reading “It’s Finals Week, Y’all!”

Why Does It Matter?

So, I know that on “Workin’ On It Wednesday” I said that this Sunday I would talk about the writer’s toolbox (and believe me, we’ll get to it eventually), but I think I want to address something that’s been on my mind all week.

If anything, an expected death when you didn’t have aContinue reading “An Update, and A Sneak Peek”

Spring, Spinning Plates, & Ideas

Yesterday, March 20, was the first day of spring 2021, and weather-wise, it looks like it’s going to be a nice one! Today is a beautiful, sunny day, and even though the temperature is a little cool, I may just spend some time on the back deck today and soak up some vitamin D whileContinue reading “Spring, Spinning Plates, & Ideas”

Finding The Fear…oh, and HELLO!

A welcome to the blog as well as a few thoughts on Finding the Fear when creating horror stories. Welcome, y’all! Thank you, all, for tuning in to the inaugural post of Screams and Dreams, my blog in support of my author’s website. The plan is to post at least twice a month to beginContinue reading “Finding The Fear…oh, and HELLO!”
