Stuck In the Middle With You - September 19, 2012

In Monday’s blog I talked about Inspiration—where my ideas come from and how I begin a story. More specifically, how I began The Anatomist’s Wife, my publishing debut. With TAW, once I had my story scenario and some of my protagonist’s back story, my writing was fairly smooth sailing until I hit the middle.  You see, I’m a bit of a mix between a plotter (someone who plans and outlines her story before she writes) and a pantser (someone who has no pla...

Inspiration - The Germ of an Idea - September 17, 2012

The Debs over at The Debutante Ball  are discussing Inspiration this week, so I decided to get in on the fun.  Readers often like to ask where an author’s inspiration for a story came from, and the answers vary widely from author to author, and even story to story. Sometimes it’s a place that inspires, or a scene in a play or movie. Sometimes it’s a song, or a dream, or a conversation with a friend or colleague. Writers are always searching for inspira...

A Wedding Gift - September 14, 2012

My cousin is getting married on Saturday, and a good friend of mine from college is getting married in October, while yet another cousin and another college friend both just got engaged. I tell you all of this to explain why I’ve had the subject of Weddings on my mind lately. Not to say that there haven’t been enough portrayals of it in the movies and on TV lately, most often showcasing atrociously bad behavior or hilariously outrageous circumstances. It’s clearl...

California Dreamin' - Part 3 - September 10, 2012

On our seventh and final day on the Pacific Coast Highway in California, we woke early in Santa Cruz, and after a delicious breakfast at our B&B set off on an inland detour.  A short drive up into the mountains about twenty miles from the coast took us to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.  We hiked the loop of the Redwood Grove Trail, and marveled at the size of the Redwood trees.  Though not comparable in size to the Redwoods in northern California, s...

California Dreamin' - Part 2 - August 31, 2012

The next three nights of our trip down the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) was spent in Monterey, at the northern edge of the Monterey Peninsula.  The entire area was gorgeous, and Monterey a bustling town built around the harbor.  Our lovely little hotel was located just a few blocks from Cannery Row, a street made famous by John Steinbeck's novel of the same name.  The remnants of the sardine factories that once lined this street can still be seen,...

California Dreamin' - Part 1 - August 26, 2012

My husband and I traveled to California in late July so that I could attend the Romance Writers of America National Conference in Anaheim, and then vacation on the West Coast.  This was the farthest west either of us had ever been (Las Vegas having been the previous place-holder).  After a day of relaxation and recovery from the excitement of the conference, we rented a car and set off across LA to meet up with the Pacific Coast  Highway in Santa Monica.  The views of t...
