Kirkus Reviews Reviewed Concussion Is Brain Injury

As I entered the creative halls of NaNoWriMo, Kirkus Reviews shot me an email saying the review on Concussion Is Brain Injury is done. Nervously, I clicked the link and read: “A brush with a life-threatening accident spurs a writer to investigate the “hidden epidemic” of debilitating brain trauma.” Nice first line! I like that […]

Back in the NaNoWriMo Noveling Saddle

Last night at midnight, I joined my fellow Wrimos in the insane endeavour of starting writing a novel when one should be asleep! It’s been too many years since I was ready to write, excited to write, able to join my fellow Wrimos at midnight on my computer. Since 2013, it’s been an exercise in […]

Concussion Is Brain Injury II Off to the Editor’s

I laid it all out, every particle of energy, every neuron corralled in the effort to finish my manuscript by the June 9th deadline.

Hard questions, detailed comments, nit picky on the grammar and punctuation in the way all good editors should be. Awesome! But also really, really tough for me because of the thinking and decisions involved. This […]
