Tumblr Tuesdays

17th July 2013 | 1 Comment

Hands on Keyboard: July 16, 2013 I don’t even know how to begin describing this last week but here it goes. Last Monday I entered Chrysalis into a Secret Agent Contest and got chosen by the random number generator. From Tuesday to Friday other participants, along with an Anonymous Agent offered critiques on the first 250 words. [...]


Tuesday’s Duck Arraigning

2nd July 2013 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: July 2, 2013] “I read Chrysalis,” my father says to me this afternoon. He’s the first of the three people I’ve let into my written soul to get back to me. “It needs more words.” I know exactly what he means. I’m well acquainted with my inability to physically describe characters and setting. [...]


a year’s worth of Tuesdays

19th June 2013 | 0 Comments

I have big news. Five minutes ago, I finished my Chrysalis edits. This is why I’m a day late for my post. Last night I wasn’t done and I was so close and I decided I wasn’t stopping for anything. I’m actually ready to let people read my book and tell me what they think. If [...]


Folding Patience into Tuesday

30th May 2013 | 0 Comments

These last few months I’ve rediscovered my love of origami. I learned it while I lived in Japan as a child and pick it up every few years. I’ve always longed to be an artist of some sort, usually through music or writing, but origami and other paper art pulls at my heart. Last night, [...]


Energized Tuesday

21st May 2013 | 0 Comments

Goodness, do I believe in the power of massage therapy >.> Over the last three weeks, the lethargy of lingering ick has really demoralized me in all of my projects. I started up Kung Fu again and it was painful to be so soft after a month away from my beloved martial arts. Tonight, I explained to my therapist [...]


Tuesday’s Larger on the Inside

9th April 2013 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: April 9, 2013] So. Um. I discovered Doctor Who this week. Okay, to be honest, I discovered it about a month ago. Tumblr convinced me if I wanted to have any sort of credibility I needed to watch it. After all, the writing, the themes, the characters, had all been praised and [...]


Tuesday’s Pitch Madness Prep

5th March 2013 | 0 Comments

It’s five days into March and I’m certain I should be spazzing about something. I have intense goals scattered all over the place. I’m preparing for my next sash level in Kung Fu. I’m in charge of my ward’s Easter Program–Music and Speakers. In connection to Easter I decided to embark on a massive origami [...]


Tagline Tuesday

26th February 2013 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: February 26] I’m hard at work training for my next Kung Fu sash level. It will be green and pretty and symbolize so much awesome. It’s physically demanding and because this particular test requires sparring, emotionally and mentally draining as well. I feel like I’m fighting to keep all of my parts [...]


Tuesday’s Romantic Statistics

18th September 2012 | 4 Comments

Hands on Keyboard [September 18, 2012] I am conquering my Editing Block, much the same way I conquered my Writing Block. Slowly. My biggest obstacle is my writing sickness. I love it too much and would rather write character histories than fix the scene I’m writing character histories for. Let me put my writing sickness [...]


Anonymous Tuesday

3rd July 2012 | 0 Comments

[Hands on Keyboard: July 3, 2012] Hello. My name is Gwynne and I’m a writing addict. For the month of June, I wrote 91,000 words. Half of that was in new!Chrysalis. The other half was silly stories about zombies, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, and the occasional demon. I think I also managed a historical romance. According to 750words [...]
