Why Tho

by megsilver on August 10, 2017

Here’s a little window into how the final two episodes are progressing. I had to decide between two options on a story point. It’s not a make-or-break decision or anything, and I’m kind of brain fried from day-job, so I said hey, I’ll just flip a coin and let the universe decide. So there’s a […]

Beer Bad

by megsilver on April 25, 2016

Okay, so I’m on temporary assignment to a different office that lets me stay home in the morning. HOME IN THE MORNING! Picture me cavorting around the office like an 80s movie walking-on-sunshine montage. Really, I’m drinking coffee with a cat in my lap, blogging, and fixing to go re-write a scene in episode 14. […]

Oh Where, Oh Where Can She Be?

Hey, everybody! Yeah, it’s been awfully quiet on this end; I always mean to post and then somehow it’s the next day and I’m wondering wtf just happened to 24 more hours. On my way home from work I started really questioning myself about where my time is going, and the idea has turned into […]

Holiday Hangover

by megsilver on December 28, 2015

Hey, everybody! Okay, I’ve just surrendered to the fact that I can either write, or I can blog, so I’ve been investing all my author time into the writing. That leaves things pretty quiet around here, but I figured, given the choice, y’all would rather I wrote instead of blogged, yes? For The Wicked‘s audiobook […]

Manions. I must have manions! Very long, eventful day ahead. I wish I could say it was writing related, but… Yeah. I forecast maybe an hour between 2 and 3 PM where I can maybe squeeze in a couple hundred words. Otherwise, not so much. Wish me luck! And have a great Monday.

Wat Tuesday

by megsilver on September 22, 2015

Reasons why I have gotten nothing productive done these last two days: 1) 2) 3) I’d take a picture of my extremely neglected kitchen and bathrooms, but the CDC is standing outside with quarantine tape. So. I’m taking part of the day off to clean, obviously, but then some of you may be receiving an […]

PSA: Dialogue Tags

by megsilver on September 2, 2015

Authors and editors, lend me your ears: I read a lot. I love books, and I love stories. Now, before I get into the following rant, let’s get something straight. I am not perfect. I have my strengths and weaknesses as an author. As an editing team, Emma and I never catch every problem. We […]

Rather a lot more excitement around here yesterday than I’d really like; major storms, power out for 8 hours. Parts of town STILL have no power after 14+ hours. /wince One good thing did come of it, however. My children will never again mock me when I tell them they had better get their phones […]

Um, Canada?

by megsilver on July 6, 2015

Lots of progress last week. Cross your fingers that continues this week. And damn, Canada… Is the entire country on fire or something? Y’all’s smoke is killing my eyes. (I can’t even imagine what it must be like up there, seeing how things have been all the way down here.) Anyway, happy Monday! Have a […]
