My Grumpy Valentine

9 februari, 2016 Sandra R Andersson 12

I promised I’d try and write something for the Valentiny Writing Contest, but boy was that a lot harder than I thought. Considering Grammarly’s most frequent complaint about my texts is ”wordiness”, attempting to write something in 214 words is perhaps a little naive. That’s like one and a half sentence […]

A tiny Valentine Writing Contest!

26 januari, 2016 Sandra R Andersson 0

I haven’t been sleeping well. That’s been par for the course the last forever years or so, so nothing new under the sun. But last night, even though I’d rather have been sleeping, I had quite a bit of fun. Someone posted this contest in the Facebook group for PiBoIdMo […]

I’m juggling way too many projects at once right now and everything might come crashing down on me any minute. But then again, it might not. No need crying over milk that hasn’t been spilled yet. (But boy, could I use a week in a hammock between two palm trees, […]

”Time” (CC BY 2.0) by  Kinchan1  So, time is running out and the year is almost over. The year when so much was going to change and the new me would come to life. Has anyone seen her? No, me neither. Just the same old me, making the same old mistakes, stuck in […]

Merry Christmas!

’Tis the season to not chicken out and I’ve sent off one of my children’s books to another beta reader and contacted the editor I would like to hire afterward to ask if she might be available. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, and hopefully I’ll be too busy with Christmas to […]

A book is a book is not necessarily a book anymore

8 december, 2015 Sandra R Andersson 0

I’ve been watching youtube videos and reading articles and blog posts all week about children’s e-books and book apps. Alli has some great resources, and there have been many interesting blog posts during PiBoIdMo as well. I’d love to be able to implement the new technologies in my stories, but […]
