The Wound—Because Damaged People Make the BEST Stories — Kristen Lamb’s Blog

Many emerging writers come to me when they find they are struggling with their WIP. I always begin with the same question, “What is your story about?” Often, I get this response, “Well, my story isn’t plot-driven. It is a character-driven story.” Translation? I have no plot…and please stop asking me because it makes me […] … Continue reading The Wound—Because Damaged People Make the BEST Stories — Kristen Lamb’s Blog

An Excerpt from Standing Stone: Llama Trauma

Two llamas grazing

Will and Joe don't have an easy time of it, from misunderstandings to complications both two-legged and emotional, but the feelings they develop for each other bind them together.  Life and love do not have an easy path for most of us.  But they do get their HEA. Many of you have seen my Facebook … Continue reading An Excerpt from Standing Stone: Llama Trauma

Gratitude

Landscape with female figure on it. Figure contains words "Gratitude"

The days leading up to Thanksgiving is Gratitude week.  Go to meetings and express what you are grateful for.  I've been hard pressed to think of anything now.  The past weeks have been a shock and have led to Exit Plan 101. But as I ate today, in peace and solitude, which I prefer, it … Continue reading Gratitude

Bleeding. The doctor informed me that it is so slow-growing, she has … Continue reading Continuing the Cancer saga…

Deadlines….

  What Standing Stone's March deadline vs my surgery feels like right now.

Bad news

The tests have been run and it turns out that it is cancer.  At this point, I'm waiting for the appointment with the specialist.  I do know I  have to have surgery.  From there or how far it has progressed? I have no clue.  I will keep you updated.

You are really boring me, people. Yes, I’m Gay

rainbow thumbs up

Oh for God sake.  Some people are so bloody thick in the head they shouldn't be breathing.  Can you believe there are idjits who think I'm straight?  Course I didn't like them well enough to tell them I was gay.  On the net you can be anything you want.  No one knows you are a … Continue reading You are really boring me, people.
