I binged some Doctor Who this weekend. I had heard a lot about the new Doctor, and how wonderful she was. I was skeptical, but the hype is true, I think: She is a good Doctor for the show. She’s brought hope back to it. Capaldi was a bit dour at times…
More than that, though, I was intrigued by the subject matter and the villains that we’ve already seen so far. It reminded me of something I’d seen about Star Trek and how The Next Generation’s main enemy, the Borg, was perfect for the time in which the show was originally airing. The idea that we can lose our humanity through technology was (and still is) an interesting, yet terrifying premise for a story.
So what do the new Doctor Who villains, the Stenza, say about the problems we face today? And what does any of this have to do with writing?

Hello Coffee Share peeps! This week, if we were sharing stories over coffee, mine would be rather bitter. I’ve developed a taste for coffee without sugar, and just a splash of heavy cream. I need to get some sugar free flavored syrups because I do like the flavors (especially hazelnut), but I’m finding that I feel better with less sugar in my diet.
Come snuggle on the couch with me, and we’ll discuss while I binge some more Ancient Aliens (It seems to be my thing right now). And if you ask nicely, I’ll even share my discount, post-Halloween candy with you.

While a large portion of the world is dressing up to celebrate Halloween, I and several other writer procrastinators will be scrambling to get all our last minute touches to our outlines, or putting together our writer’s emergency kit. Some of us are just getting around to announcing our novel and signing up. Some of us are kicking ourselves for not buying the Preptober kits that I kept seeing all over the internet…
But whatever you’re doing today, tomorrow you will be writing!
Tomorrow, NaNoWriMo begins.

Normally (or if I had time to post properly it would be normally), Tuesdays are for my dating updates and relationship posts, but today, as we countdown to #NaNoWriMo, I want to look at a different kind of relationship: The relationship between author and character(s).
Continue reading “Tender Tuesday: What kind of relationship do you have with your characters?”
It’s a work in progress, and some of the characters introduced here are more than slightly based on actual people I know… though the names have been changed to protect the guilty… But I wanted to share this, and see if it was any good before I got sucked too far into this story: Continue reading “A scene from a new WIP.”
Especially when Spring Break is so close! You know that feeling, when you don’t want to do anything, and contemplate taking some time off…

Good evening beautiful Rewinders! Normally I don’t write this post until Sunday, but this week you’re lucking out and getting it early! And you’re getting a two-for-one Rewind!
That’s partially because I feel a little guilty about not writing anything on here last week. Mostly, though, it’s because I want to write, but need a little break from my NaNoWriMo project. I’ve done nothing but write in my spare time during the last 48 hours of NaNoWriMo!!
But it was worth it because I won. Continue reading “DSF Weekly Rewind: I won NaNo!!”
