Writerly Stuff

I’ve done a major no-no in the noob author world: I haven’t blogged on a regular basis. Fifty lashes with a wet noodle.

You trusted me


  1. I’m busy/You’re busy/The dog is busy.
  2. Nothing new to report.
  3. Haven’t watched any new movies/shows.
  4. Insomnia makes me loopy.
  5. I work two other jobs.
  6. I’m busy learning to how to write a screenplay.
  7. And figuring out how indie publishing works too.


Wait…what about those last two? It’s true. So are all the others, but I am laying it out here on the blog to make it real to myself. I’d be a ridiculous ninny to limit myself to waiting for traditional publishing only, when there are other options out there. I will say that learning scripts is like being fluent in Spanish and writing in French, which you’ve only heard in foreign films. Weird thing? I LOVE it!


I’m escaping to the cabin again this weekend with Hannah and Rosemary to working on formatting my script and tinkering around with writerly stuff. God has plunked magnificent story ideas in my melon and I need to figure out which way to point my ship.


Or not. Sometimes it’s just enjoying the company and eating candy. Because I’m bringing candy this time.


About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
