Writing Challenge – Take Two

Welcome, welcome! Writing challenges are a great way to stretch yourself either in meeting a deadline or increasing your daily word counts. Here's what I learned from mine. Starting August, I'm doing another writing challenge to finish my story Deadly Bloodlines, book 1 in my Deadly Series. I'm at 48k words and aiming to get to [...]

I like it FAST!

I love fast cars. No, I don't sit on my couch on Sunday's watching cars go around a track for hours. That's not my style. What I do like however, is the look of fast cars, especially sports cars. I wouldn't necessarily want to drive one everyday, but on the weekends or to blow off [...]
