      I almost missed your comment – it’s fabulous to hear from you! My blog has suffered over the last few months as I’ve been working on another project offline… Mostly I am writing over at yeah write (http://yeahwrite.me) where I manage the 42-word microstory challenge. Come join us?

    Hi, Christine! Wanted to let you know that next week (Monday, January 18th, at 3pm EST), dVerse is kicking off a new feature called the Quadrille, with a limitation of 44 words (and must use a provided word). Similar to Trifecta, which I soooooo still miss! Wanted to let you know. Would love to see you over there! Hope all is well. de.

    Hi Christine, I’ve really enjoyed your writing here and would love to nominate you to learn more about your writing process. You probably don’t have time to answer these questions, but if you by chance did, i’d love to read it. =)

    What am I working on at the moment?
    How does my work differ from others of its genre?
    Why do I write what I do?
    How does my writing process work?

      Hi! You are so kind! I have actually been thinking about this sort of thing lately, and will likely write it up. It might take a while, but I will let you know if/when I do. I’m flattered that you are interested. 🙂

    I wanted to learn more about you … and I have! I love how you think and write. I am looking forward to reading more of your work (I’ve read at least three things already). 🙂

    Glad I found your blog. It have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time catching up on your past posts as I love your writing style. It is the type of writing that, should I ever take the plunge into pursuing fiction writing, will cause quite a bit of jealousy. And in writing I consider jealousy and admiration two sides to the same coin.


    • Christine says:

      *blush* You just made my morning! I’ve been a bit lax lately on the writing front – my two little kids have been sucking the energy right out of me – but I’m hoping to come up for air this week. (See my post from last week: Haze.) I’ll be stopping by your blog in a bit, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with for Trifecta. 🙂

    I do the same thing, I usually come up with ideas when I’m not at home and without a handy writing device. I am glad that I usually have my phone on me to text certain ideas back to myself. I have 3 children all past the baby stages, but can still appreciate the amount of time one has to sit down and write.

    Thanks for linking up to us! I didn’t realize, until I read your post, that this is how I write, too. I find a phrase or sentence or idea and just worry it out all day or all night, until I have the chance to commit it to paper somewhere. Welcome to Trifecta.
