Go Meg, go!

I can’t believe this! The guy I like here in Prague seems to like me, too. That never happens! Only for other people! Never for Meg! Go me! His name is Georg. He’s such a dreamboat. In my honor, and referring to me as the guest of honor, he brought home-cooked food to the writersContinue reading “Go Meg, go!”

Because I’m a cat!

Today has been boring because Sonya’s been busy. Her to-do list is constantly driving her to an early grave. She spends all her free time writing and editing her novels. She spends the rest of her free time beta reading for her writers groups. She takes a weekly dance class to guarantee that she’ll leaveContinue reading “Because I’m a cat!”

Party at Sonya’s place!

The trip has gone well so far, which I’m afraid to type without jinxing myself, but there it is. Today is a day of rest and recovery, because yesterday’s writers group was an all-day affair, going on for well over twelve hours. I had a blast! So today we’re staying in, ‘cause Sonya has aContinue reading “Party at Sonya’s place!”

Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!

Here I am on vacay!! I’m at Sonya’s writers group as we speak. They spend several hours just sitting at the table here, writing, so I worked on a 250-word story for the current contest at NYC Midnight, and now I figured I’d blog. I’m supposed to be beta reading for the other members, butContinue reading “Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!”

No way to account for it!

So, I’ve been submitting 5,000 words of my memoir to Sonya’s writers group each week. Their feedback has been incredibly helpful. Oddly enough, I’ve turned it into a drinking game. Every time someone comments, Your mother did WHAT?! I drink some tequila. It’s almost comical. I’ve heard of people with overbearing mothers who grew up okay becauseContinue reading “No way to account for it!”

Writing is hard!

If you want to be a writer, that’s great. Here are some things to know! You’ll never write anything good on your own.  And this should just be accepted. Writing can be a very humbling experience. If you think you’ve written something nice, but it hasn’t been beta-read, then you could be in for aContinue reading “Writing is hard!”

My story!

I got the go-ahead to share my 100-word microfiction story!! The assignment was to write a story that includes chasing something (however you want to interpret the concept of chasing something) and the word “grow”. It can be in any genre(s). I had one brave guesser (shout-out to Jewish Young Professional!) on my guess-my-genre post,Continue reading “My story!”

Win an Amazon gift card!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great day today. I have a fun contest down below. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve been getting super-useful feedback from Sonya’s writer’s group. I accepted a long time ago that no one can write a great novel (or novel-length memoir) withoutContinue reading “Win an Amazon gift card!”

Ambiguously good!

I have good news of an ambiguous nature. I think I’m golden to compete in this weekend’s microfiction final! Go me! I waited 24 hours to hear back from Charlie and then I figured he can’t handle interacting with me due to my constant hysterics. (I totally don’t blame him.) So I took a gambleContinue reading “Ambiguously good!”
