“A rose by any other name…”

Posted by Nichole on January 2, 2018 in Life in General, Writing |

It’s that time of year again.  You know the drill.  Somewhere between the excessive amount of gifts, obscene amount of cookies, and the turning of a calendar page (or, in my case, the recycling of one calendar and replacing it with another), most of us have at least a moment of panic. Panic about what […]

Anyone still here?

Posted by Nichole on December 1, 2012 in Writing |

First, let me apologize for my less-than-reliable blogging.  I could give you some very true, yet completely lame reasons, but I won’t. Blogging and the book reviews have been on my “To-Do” list each week.  (Yes, I re-write the list every week.) I’m not going to lie and say that from now on I’ll be […]

Rubicon Ranch: Riley’s Story

Posted by Nichole on June 14, 2012 in Mystery, Writing |

A year or so ago I was asked by my publisher to participate in a collaborative novel. Um, wow.  Yeah.  There’s really no other word to describe the experience. The way it worked was one person would write a chapter.  Then the next.  Then the next.  The chapters could only be in “your” character’s point […]

Posted by Nichole on November 3, 2011 in Writing |

November is National Novel Writers Month.  I’m not going to go into what that is or why people participate.  I’ve done that before on various blogs.  Instead I’m going to give a “Day 2” update. November 1 I was on a role.  I’m not sure if that’s because all the stars were aligned just right […]

25 or 40? Which direction do I go?

Posted by Nichole on October 15, 2011 in Life in General, Writing |

I found a pin a few weeks ago at a shop in a mall in Pierre, South Dakota.  The pin was so “me” that I had to buy it.  It’s got a 1950s-style woman with the words “Even if the voices aren’t real, they’ve got some really good ideas.”  The whole design is on a […]

Is September the “Writers New Year”?

Posted by Nichole on August 31, 2011 in Life in General, Writing |

In the spirit of full disclosure, I totally stole this blog topic from a group on Ravelry.  (What?  You don’t know what Ravelry is?  *sigh*  The short answer is it’s Facebook for crafty folk.)  This was a question someone asked on the “knitters who write” board. My first thought was “Nope.  That would happen in […]

What is paranormal? And why write about it?

Posted by Nichole on August 28, 2011 in Paranormal, Writing |
