Pretty sure this is a policy adhered to by all the characters in Drink Me.  

You Can’t Convince Me a Hockey Stick Isn’t a Weapon

April 3, 2014 by

Me: I kind of want to make one of my characters a hockey player. Rick: (thoughtful silence) So then it’s research? Me: (laughing) See? You get me. I think I’m just not comfortable having an aspect of my life that’s not somehow connected to work… The thing is, I’ve accidentally become an ice hockey fan. […]

Get High on My Fault Lines

My Honest Poem I was born on July 22nd. I hear that makes me a Leo. I don’t really know what that means. Iʼm five foot six (and a half). I weigh 145 pounds. I donʼt know how to swim. And Iʼm a sucker for a girl with a nice smile and clean sneakers. Iʼm […]

So you know how a couple of weeks ago when I first started thinking about the new book I said this story was really small? One character.* One drama. One POV. You remember when I said that?

Failing that, I should be editing Path, or working up this middle grade thing.* But what I have been doing is having migraine-style headaches which stop my brain from functioning. And then last Friday night I […]

The Violent Ecstasy of the End Point

March 28, 2013 by

I am going through the end of the book so fast it’s a little disturbing. Partly because holding it all my head is starting to make me feel like I’ve got a zoetrope in there, but also because I’m so focused on it I’m not really connecting properly with the real world. Like, okay — […]

I Did Not Blow Up or Drown Anyone. Today.

Me: Wrote another chapter today. Rick: Yay. More explosions? Me: This is like… the aftermath of the explosion. Rick: Hmmm. Explosion wasn’t big enough then. Me: It was a very little one, in point of fact. The idea is to not blow up my main characters. Rick: I suppose you might need bounds on things […]
