So, it turns out that I’m an Introvert… | Carrie... →
Recognizing you’re an introvert (or an extrovert, for that matter) is important, I think…because finally you realize that there really isn’t anything “wrong” with you, it’s just who you are, and how you deal with the world.

If I had the capitol, I do believe I’d look into starting an indie bookstore right about now…would compliment my publishing business nicely, methinks.

A Newbie's Guide to Publishing: Harlequin Fail →
I never thought I’d ever say this - but I’m glad I never achieved my goal of submitting an MS to Harlequin. As little as I make off my books…it’s still probably more than I’d make writing for them, from the looks of this.

BBC News - The myth of the eight-hour sleep →
This is fascinating…I generally feel best after a four hour “nap”, rather than 8 hours of solid sleep. And I often sleep better on the weekends when I get up after 4 hours, feed the dogs, and then go back to sleep. Hmm….

Weekly Flash Prompt: Typing
It’s two in the morning, and the world is silent save the gentle clicking of fingernails on a keyboard. The computer screen is white and full of colorful programming code that shifts upward every few seconds. The clicking stops, and long seconds pass as her finger hovers over the key that will execute the program… - From Flash 52: 52 Writing Prompts for a Year of Flash Fiction (by me)...
