Hello Friday: FaN Notes [April 29, 2011]

Friendly Reminder, if you haven’t yet answered the 5 simple questions in the 32 CANDLES Marketing survey, I’d be muy grateful if you got on that now. That all solicited, let’s get into our terrific week at FaN: 1. I thought I had given up most to all of my slightly southern...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Week 11 of 2011]

Oh guys, I am just exhausted. Finishing up this side project and looking forward to going into copy edits on the second novel next week. Getting closer to multiple finish lines, and it’s really beginning to feel like I’m typing this while coming up on the last leg of a marathon....

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Week 8 of 2011]

Can I ask you this? How are we already two months into 2011? Isn’t that the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard? It seriously feels like I was just making my New Year’s resolutions like a week ago. But then again, I’m already regretting not putting “keep your...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Week 4 of 2011]

Wondering how long it will take me to stop writing 2010 and then having to delete and correct with 2011. So far I’ve made this mistake four weeks and counting. Sad. How are you all doing with this? Other than that, let’s get into my notes re this week at Fierce and Nerdy. 1....

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Week 3 of 2011]

Hey-ho, well I’m off for my frozen embryo transfer, for which I’m once again being put on valium. Then 48 hours of modified bed rest, during which I hope to get all my email answered, at least one whole book read, and everything cleared off my DVR — what? It could happen!...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Week 1 of 2011]

What a great first week back at FaN! On a personal note, I’ve gotten all my notes back on my second novel and am gearing up for my second big rewrite, starting Monday. Also, if you’re looking for some inspiration to start or finish your novel this year, I’m going to be on a panel with Ron...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes & Programming Message

So we’ve come to the time of the year, when my husband gets not one, but two whole weeks off and we spend that time doing stuff that doesn’t involve the internet. But not to worry. Last year when I went to Hawaii for two weeks as opposed to feeding the content dragon, we got a few...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [December 10, 2010]

What a heckuva week. I finally got back to writing and oh um … I cut off all my hair again. “How short?” you ask? Well, did you know me in college?  Yeah, that short. I know, I know, “Why did you cut off all your hair???” But I’m sure you already know what...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes November 5, 2010

Whatta week! I’m jetlagged, sick (more about that next week), and waaaaay behind. Basically my beloved FaN was the only thing that went right this week. So let’s talk about that, shall we? 1.  Like, my writing exchange partner, Gudrun, I’ve been in a funk all week. Wondering...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Oct. 8, 2010]

Exciting news. I’ll be in Downtown L.A, doing a Q&A entitled “How To Crush It With Words: Finishing and Publishing Your Book, A Conversation with Ernessa T. Carter” at my beloved alma mater, Writing Pad next Friday, October 15 at 8pm. There will also be books for sale...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [October 1, 2010]

Guys, guys, guys, sorry I’ve been so out-of-pocket this week. I have not had dependable internet access on my laptop since last Wednesday. CH found me in the fetal position yesterday when he came home from work and pulled a fix out of nowhere. Thank the deity, b/c I’m still not...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Sept. 17, 2010]

Hey, hey, hey! Back from DC, and resting up for a bit before I hit the road again, starting with Pittsburgh on Sept. 22. Oh, Pittsburgh, it’s been six years too long. Can’t wait to see you again. But that all plugged, let’s talk about the good stuff — that’s...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [Sept. 10, 2010]

What a way to kick off September. Fierce and Nerdy’s now two-years-old, and I’m just loving the makeover. But enough about that. Let’s break into the good stuff: this week’s round-up! 1. I was already planning to vote for Jerry Brown, but Monique’s article about...

Hello Friday: FaN Notes [August 6, 2010]

What a fantastic week. I ate well, I exercised every day, I paid my library fine, I painted my toenails orange just because Debra B. suggested I do, and I’m thisclose to booking my latest hair-changing appointment. I really could not be happier with this week. But enough about that....

Hello Friday: Highlights from the Road [FaN Notes]

I had what I’m fairly sure is going to be my last on-the-road book event of the summer at Artworks in Trenton last night. What a fantastic night of local art, food, and books (provided by the local independent bookstore, Classics Used & Rare Books). A ton of fun was also had at the...
