My story board reminds me to strike while the iron is hot. It helps me keep published stories from this year, works in progress, and ideas at eye level. If I have a new one, I throw it up. The squares are sticky notes so they’re easy to fix and replace. Old ideas dry up and fall off. Placeholder titles grow stale and get replaced.
The five on the right are new this year. Let’s see how many make it all the way over before 2017 cools off.
Straight fell off the blog wagon these last few months. Blogging just isn’t a priority right now. If you want to get updates from me in real time, I’d suggest the newsletter, which I am striving to make more entertaining and the primary source for book news.

This blog will remain as a creative outlet, but my activity will vary as I’m prioritizing writing and publishing in the limited time I have apart from my freelance business.
