I feel like the “It’s” guy from Monty python…

You know what I mean, right? That poor soul who pants and gasps and crawls his way through the terrain just to look at the camera a say, "It's..." before he collapses? ID: Cait crawling on the ground, being the Monty Python "It's" guy. (Drama much?) Gracious, I'm so busy, my busy is busy! This …

It’s almost mid-January and I haven’t posted yet!

So, here's my post. How'd ya like it so far? ID: Grayscale image of wooden fence post in against a field grown wild. Life has been a whirlwind lately with extra bits of whoosh. I've barely had time to think. Yet, after only 12 days into 2019, I've already learned a lesson: I super-really, absolutely, …

The Space Opera Libretti call for submissions got me writing again!

Hey, there! I discovered a thing about myself that I find kinda cool. Because I've only a few years under my belt as an author, I'm still learning what my process is after finishing a novel. And guess what? It seems I really like writing short stories in between larger projects. I had to ditch …

I'm done! image

Okay, I’m done. But don’t worry—I’m happy about it.

I just this evening had a BOIIIING moment. I'm done with writing for 2018. And you know what? That's perfectly fine. It's been a great year for me. A Night at the Rabbit Hole was published in the Alice Unbound Beyond Wonderland anthology, and I got to hang with some awesome authors. The Hilltop Gathering will be published …

The Author’s Journey hosts Cait Gordon

In late 2017, I was interviewed by the delightful Mony Dojeiji on The Author's Journey. We talked about what got me into writing, how I love my drums, what my faith means to me, and the Spoonie Authors Network. (Btw, I know it's "raised my hands," but considering I suffer from fibro fog, I am quite …

Writing Goals: Yup, I got ’em!

It's funny how you think you had an unproductive year until that year is over. I lamented over 2017 because I couldn't finish a WIP I wanted to submit—Life in Another ’Cosm: Jinny from the Blog—and spent what little energy I had on crafting short stories. Then, I thought I'd kick my novel-writing butt back …

Choosing ‘The Funny’ While Managing Anxiety

It’s amazing to me how people who deal with mental illness can be stigmatized as being weak, ’cause I’m like, Really? Really, doods? Do you actually have the teensiest clue what it’s like?  I manage OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) impulses and anxiety. It wasn’t enough for me to have chronic neuropathy throughout my body. I wanted a mental …
