Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due, part 15

Mother insisted Alexandra come home with us. Usually a night owl, it didn't take much to convince her to take a hot bath and go straight to bed, even though it was still a little early. When Elizabeth and Rose heard what had happened, she found herself once again enveloped in hugs. Elizabeth went up… Continue reading Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due, part 15

Nano Wrap Up & Holiday Blog Break

Whew! It's over! Did you make it? Did you bang out a full novel? Did you hit 50,000 words? Regardless of how you performed, I really happy for everyone who tried! Even if you only wrote 5,000 words instead of 50,000, that's still 5,000 more than you had at the start of the month, and… Continue reading Nano Wrap Up & Holiday Blog Break


Nano Check In: Week 3

How's it going? On par? Behind? Already past the finish line? I compared this year's stats with previous years, and this is far and away my most difficult Nanowrimo ever. I'm just barely holding steady at par; usually I keep 1-2 days worth of words in the bank, if not more. I actually skipped writing… Continue reading Nano Check In: Week 3

Stress Knitting Finished Objects

Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due: Part 4

The next morning was bright and clear, and already warm by the time I came down to breakfast at eight o’clock. Mother and Daddy were already sitting at the table. Daddy had that crease between his brow, which could only mean Mother had already told him about my escapade the night before. Slinking into my… Continue reading Dru Faust and the Devil’s Due: Part 4
