Hi. I’m Dani (aka Danielle) Gibbings McGaw and this is my little space on the interwebs. You’ll find posts about my personal life, my opinions, ideas, writing, writing for money, and more here on my blog.
This is my personal blog so you never know what you’re going to find here. It could be pictures I’ve taken or pieces of fiction I’m working on. It might be something informative or it could be something completely random!
Sit down and have a cup of coffee and a read with me!
So, I finally decided what to start NaNoWriMo with. I'm going to be writing a sweet romance modern day fairy tale and I decided to call it Average Jain. Yes, I spelled her name wrong. On purpose. Because that's the trendy thing to do. And I don't want to mix it up...read more
So, Nanowrimo is less than a week away. I'm no where near prepared. But I'm determined to finish it this year. I can't pants it. I don't dare...do I? Shouldn't I at least have a clear idea of what I'm going to write? Arghhhhhh! I have it narrowed down to two genres -...read more
Ok, too much on my mind today so I'm going to give you a quick run down of a few of them... #1 The People That Only Text When They Are Being Nosy How come some people only text you when there's something going on in your life that they want to know about? They follow...read more
That's right. Day off. Day before my kids get here for Thanksgiving weekend. Last chance to get stuff done. What have I done? Not a damn thing. It's all Tiffany Jenkins fault. Seriously, if I hadn't stumbled across her blog I'd likely be done cleaning and ready to...read more
I didn't know what I was going to write today when I got home but the important thing is I did write. 🙂 I decided to get started on the steamy romance. I didn't write for long but I got 980 words in. I'm really trying hard not to focus on the how many words I wrote...read more
I'll repeat what I said yesterday. Once you start writing it is not so hard to just keep going. I did have to finish Client Story #1 tonight but even if I didn't have to I could have because once I got writing it was not really that hard to write 2400 words. They just...read more
I came home from my shift exhausted today. My feet hurt and my brain was tired. That's usually how it is. I think most of you understand that. The last thing I wanted to do was to open up my Alphasmart and write some fiction. So, I talked to my husband for a while. I...read more
As far as writing goes, the last couple months have been - lacking, to say the least. In August I did do some client writing (fiction) but that's pretty much all I did. I didn't write for me. September has been worse. And I have no clue where the month went. So, it is...read more
Normally, I do a Things On My Mind post with a bunch of smaller thoughts - but I'm thinking this is a good category to put all my random posts in. You know, when I just have something to say but it's not really a writer type of thing. Anyway, I want to talk about...read more
You know, when you're a writer, your stories are constantly on your mind. You think about them when you're doing dishes, You think about what they should be doing when you're at the store (you think about what they would be buying!). You think about them when you...read more
