I’m moving to a new virtual space!

I’ve been thinking about a second site for a while — one where I can post the odds and ends that inspire me in my creative work, which is primarily fantasy and science fiction writing. The Domesticated Muse started out as a place to help people reach their creative goals, especially people who are already juggling family and work. But over time, my focus has changed from a kind of creativity coaching to my own creative writing.

And so, while I’m a bit sad to end my Domesticated Muse posts (which have dwindling recently anyway), I’m excited to have a new site, Carnival of Words, that will be more of a free creative space for me, and a place to give updates on my work for readers who are interested. I’ll keep this site up for a while longer, because it’s still getting daily hits for some of my popular posts. If you want to read new stuff from me, come on over to the new place, and thanks for reading!

Double Rainbow

Today I finished revisions on the final chapter of my YA/older Middle Grade novel The Violet Lens (working title). I want to be all professional about this, but actually I’m squealing with joy. It’s off to my trusty beta readers now, who will tear bits apart and make it better. Hopefully they won’t say things…

All Hallow’s Read

It’s October, my favorite time of year, despite that fact that it means  the winter blues will probably hit me like a load of wet snow from the roof in a couple of months. I’m crazy about the autumn, as I’ve mentioned here before, and it has been seventy degrees and sunny this week in…

Getting around the roadblocks

August was sparse. Only one post from me, at the beginning of the month. Such was my life at the end of this summer. But now the kids are back in school, and I’ve revised three more chapters of my YA book. My plan back at the beginning of the summer YA novel challenge was…

YA novel update too

One of my clowns was home sick from clown camp today. This wasn’t good for my writing, but was very good for the poor little clown, who was all tired out. Theodora Goss, who started the YA Novel challenge, has an update on her blog, and it reminded me that I hadn’t updated in a…

Stilt-walking and literary ghosts

I’m getting ready for a two-week novel-writing intensive. I’m not going off to some camp where experts will help me hone my skills and give me the space and time to work intensively on a single project. My kids are doing that. They are going off to circus camp. They will be learning to stilt-walk,…
