Sometimes it’s easy

There are some days when the words come easy. My fingers just trip over the keyboard and I love everything that comes out.

Then there are the days when every word is a struggle and I find myself distracted. I know that it is the part of the novel that I am working on. I’ve reached a point where what I am writing is too close. I’ve reached the place where putting it on paper hurts. I hurt for my characters.

So instead of writing I’m watching a hockey game from last season. I’m watching the Stanly Cup finals. I don’t know if I’m hoping that the Bruins will inspire me or if I am procrastinating. The funny thing is I picked a game that my team lost. Well it is what was on.

I still can’t believe the Bruins won the Cup. I was two the last time that happened. One of the players I fell in love with last year is still unsigned and the talk is that the Bruins are shopping him out. I’ll be sad if he goes, but I’ve lost players I’ve loved in the past – it is part of sports. Believe it or not I still follow the guys I like even when they are on teams I hate.

Sometimes the words come easy – like slipping on ice. Sometimes they don’t and then it feels like I’m in waist deep water.

OK I'm pimping

I just wanted to let everyone know where they can get my stories.

In my story “Safely Home”, included in the anthology Spirit Legends (an anthology of stories about gods, ghosts and what have you) a young woman, the girlfriend of a professional hockey player, sees the pagan gods her boyfriend worships at the last game played in an old rink. I haven’t gotten to read the rest of the anthology yet. The link is to buy it is Spirit Ledends

My story “Box of Cows”, an e-book from the publisher bookstogonow, is available in two forms, as a standalone and also in an anthology with 3 other stories. “Box of Cows” involves a fairy dealing with escaped cows and a Fairy Queen. It is set on I-95 in Delaware: Single Story,the anthology

“Rebuilding Year” is the first story in a series about a hockey team made up of bouda, or were-hyena, who are at the end of a rebuilding year. How do you rebuild a team made up of were-animals? ( I think that there will be five stories in this series. One should be coming out this fall) Rebuilding Year

Last but not least, I am working on my first full length novel that will be published. It is due for editing on the 7th of March, so I’m guessing it will be ready for publishing about this time next year.
