About Danae

Apparently, I have read too many books because one night they started coming back out in strange new combinations.  I’ve had to hit the ground running, re-learning how to write a story in a readable way, edit myself, starting a writer’s platform, and learning to navigate the new world of social media.  Blogging has become the most liked of my platforms, after being the one of which I was most afraid.  Isn’t that always the case?

I don’t have any fiction posted on the blog because I had to take down my fairy tale, The Mayfly Bride, to revise and start submitting to anthologies.  Apparently anthologies are a good way to get your name out there as a writer, taking the role magazines used to play, in a bygone era.

You could watch my flailing attempt to start a daily Word Count Goal for the third time.  That’s always good for a laugh.  Or, there’s the unfinished Low-Budget Writing Program, if you are so inclined.  Warning: you get what you pay for.

Some common themes I deal with as a writer are the frustrations on the Writer’s Road, and The Writer as a Mirror to Society.  I will try to link up some of those posts as we go along. My most liked post is The Hidden Hero: Tropes and Clichés. Here are a few of my favorites:


I now have my very first publishing credit!  Hell Bound Books accepted me into one of their anthologies.  Check it out if you love Horror!       http://www.hellboundbookspublishing.com/bootleg4.html

I don’t plan on monetizing this blog.  It’s just the place I share what I am learning about being a writer.  Nothing fancy, just an occasional stroll through my brain.  Wipe your feet, please.  Non-writers my find it boring.

Gender binary is a flawed social construct, and I prefer to think of myself as human, but I’m used to she/her.

  1. Blogging doesn’t scare me nearly as much as, say, Facebook. *shudder* As long as i pretend no one will read what I post on my blog, I’m fine… and when I can’t pretend that, at least the ‘don’t look at me!’ feeling is useful for when I’m writing fiction.
