Every now and again I write little vignette-type things. They’re collected at the free fiction page, and I’ve just updated with the latest batch. Mirrored from Jenna Jones.com.
Thousand word Thursday at Cryselle’s Craziness
Every Thursday Cryselle posts a picture prompt to inspire authors to write a 100-1000 word story. Last week she posted a pair of gymnasts, and I wrote Stop and Stare. Enjoy. Mirrored from Jenna Jones.com.
I know I haven’t talked about this in ages
For a long, long time I’ve been struggling with a screenplay, and come close to giving up on it many times. But today, thanks to a perfect storm of events, I’ve written the end. It’s about five minutes’ worth of film, I think, images and lines I’ve had in my head for years. I think… Continue reading I know I haven’t talked about this in ages
My apologies to anyone who got spammed by updates. I was tryinhg to import posts from Like driving at night and got a bunch of posts from my publisher’s blog instead. Boy is my face red! Mirrored from Jenna Jones.com.

Back in print! The King’s Diamond
I’d break into a parody of “Back in Black” if I could think of anything good that rhymes with print. Mint? Squint? Hm. I’m very fond of this little story. Like most ideas, it was inspired by a few seemingly unrelated but deeply beloved things. (Brain stew. Yes.) The folkloric meaning of the diamond is… Continue reading Back in print! The King’s Diamond
November word count
This month didn’t quite go according to plan. I got about 4000 words into the story and it petered out, and I had to take a long look at what’s going on with both of these novels that are fighting me every step of the way. I’m not sure I’ve quite figured out what the… Continue reading November word count
October word count
This month was very self-indulgent, and I didn’t finish a thing I’d intended to work on. But I still kicked my word count’s ass. BOOSH. I intend to do Nanowrimo this month. The story is Ben & Jamie 2. DOUBLE BOOSH. (But first I have to finish the thing I intended to finish this weekend.… Continue reading October word count
