Monday Mayhem – A trickle to a stream

Posted on May 1, 2017 by Maggie Wells   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

There. I typed it. At last. On the piece of…book that’s been giving me fits since November. And how did I get there? By dialing back my ego, essentially shredding large parts of what I have already written for book three, and basically saying enough is enough. Is it done? Not even close. But now I [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Typecasting

Posted on Apr 24, 2017 by Maggie Wells   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

Do you have a type? I’m working on Easy Bake Lovin’ (Play Dates #2), and one of the plot points is that the heroine is about as opposite the hero’s usual type. Their attraction stirs some not-so-subtle commentary, which, in turn, leads to hurt feelings and confusion. “Type” seems a shallow plot point on first [Read more…]

Two weeks ago, A BOLT FROM THE BLUE released into the wild. This was a super quick labor – only about thirteen months from conception to birth.

Monday Mayhem – I’ve been up, down, all around…

Posted on Mar 27, 2017 by Maggie Wells   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’ve been feeling completely unmotivated lately. For most of this year, actually. At first, I didn’t worry about it too much. I’d finished another NaNoWriMo in November. December had been its usual whirlwind, but with the special added bonus of a software conversion and move at the day job. Then January came, and I ran [Read more…]

No, I’m not talking basketball, though, I can, I will and I do. I’m talking about the week we just had around here. Did I tell you we had tickets to so The Phantom of the Opera this week? I’ve seen it 5 or 6 times in Chicago and St. Louis, but this is the [Read more…]

Monday Mayhem – Whoops!

Posted on Mar 13, 2017 by Maggie Wells   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

Whoa! Life got me. Yesterday, we hosted a party for our grandson’s 4th birthday, and we were so worn out at the end of it I completely forgot to post! I hope this bit-o-cuteness makes up for my inattentive behavior. I’ll be better next week!
