The random—and not so random—musings of a quirky Regency romance writer.
No one with that many people in her head can possibly be normal...

Ignore the Naysayers...Including Yourself

To my friends and followers who are just starting out in the writing world:

Just write. Pay no attention to that little voice in your head. You know the one. That irritating little voice that says what you're writing isn't good enough. 


Now, listen to the characters. Let them tell you what to write. Later, when it's time to edit, you can worry about the overuse of the word that or too many -ly words. Right now, all you need to worry about is getting the story out. No one matters but the people in your head, those faceless characters who so desperately want you to tell their story. 

That's all for now. Until next time... 

Happy reading, writing, and blogging!!!
