I'm Deborah. I'm a writer, currently seeking representation/publication for my YA Fantasy Fractured Princess

I love to play Final Fantasy games and Shattered Pixel Dungeon. I also enjoy the many ins and outs of music (I'm a chorus geek).

Eet's Thor's Day

So why am I blogging, you ask?

Well, because I can, lol, but also I just felt like saying Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed theirs. Sunday night I closed a near-empty bag of cereal, got a puff of crumb dust directly in my eyes, and developed a nasty sinus infection (in semi-related news, I once wrote a song whose only words were "This sort of thing only happens to me"). A stomach bug is also making its way around town, so I caught that in the middle of the night and was out of work sick Monday. Because bouncing back 100% the day after I'm sick always backfires on me, I decided to spend New Year's Eve in bed, which was a good thing, because I woke up the next morning feeling like a billion bucks.

Now that it's 2014, I plan on doing two things, and we'll see how they work out: writing a successful query, and possibly adapting my fantasy novel into a screenplay. I may have talked about this already, that I was initially a Writing for Film/TV major, and when I started writing books, it wasn't because of what I was reading, but because of what I was watching on TV. So what I see in my head takes a lot of work to translate when I'm writing it in prose form, but writing scripts for my class projects came to me so easily. An odd revelation to have when you started writing 22 years ago. =\

But I want to do newer and bigger things this year and (cue music) Always look on the briiight side of life *whistles* (end music).

How was everyone's New Year's? Head still hurting (giggle)? Anyone have Watch Night at church? How was it?

I believe I'll be back full force Wednesday for the first Insecure Writer's Support Group post of the year!


  1. That would be cool to get the story into screenplay form.
    Cereal related injury - that is unique!

    1. I wish I could make this stuff up instead of it actually happening to me. lol

  2. Happy New Year! Hope you can achieve your New Year's resolutions.

  3. Happy new year, Debra! Very cool how you want to adapt your fantasy novel into a screenplay. Hope that and all your query-writing go well this year! :)

  4. Best way to spend New Year's Eve - in bed! No hangover and fighting off all those nasty things that are going around.
    All the best with your screenplay, Debra, and Happy New Year.

  5. When I write, I usually imagine the story playing out like in a movie. I think watching TV and movies is very helpful in the whole showing, not telling thing in writing. (At least I think so!)

    Nice to meet you..hope your bugs are cleared out of your sinuses and your belly!
