New Look – Again!

I’ve been playing with the blog again. I wanted it to match my sites layout as much as it could, and I think I’ve managed to get it pretty close. I’ve been writing today. Well, when I wasn’t playing with this thing, that is. The weekends are hectic here and not much writing is ever done Friday OR Saturday so the fact that I actually had time to open Word and write what I did … Keep Reading!

For the love of a muse

I’ve been writing for several years now and the term ‘muse’ has always tickled me. What is it exactly? What is its purpose? Well, for those of you who don’t know – its that little voice in the back of your head that tells you what, when, where and how you’ll write. In other words, your subconscious….or thats MY take on it. My muse is–well, differnet. Its a HE for one. I gave him a … Keep Reading!

Happy New Year!

Yes, I know I’m late. *sigh* I decided to take a little holiday, over the holidays, from writing, blogging and general net life and I do believe it did me some good. Since ‘coming back’ I’ve redesigned my website, made some progress on my outlines for CK and finished up the short story I had originally intended to submit to Linden Bay for their Winter Anthology, but never did. I honestly didn’t think it was … Keep Reading!

Thoughts and Stuff

Is it just me, or is Blogger being a total poop today? I can’t get any pages to load fully and its just being – wonky. Anyway, I think I have my comments glitch fixed! Or – at least I got a whole batch of emails forwarded to me all at once. lol I take that as a good sign. Thanks to Caz, the templete maker, for the help. I’ve not written anything. And I … Keep Reading!

Outlines and writing

I’m using an outline for the first time in – 3 years. I’ve never written one. I’ve never had the need for one. I’m the kind of writer who just sits down and does it. I write until I hit a snag – think on it for a few days and keep going. But now – with this new story, I’m finding it almost impossible to write it. There are so many little things that … Keep Reading!

Adult, ADD

I’m beginning to seriously think I have this. My son (age 16) had it, my dad, although never diagnoised HAD to have it. One look at him and you’d know, so I’ve been thinking, maybe this is also my problem. I can’t stay on ONE task for more than 15 minutes. Sure, I always go back to it, but I can’t seem to stay focused. I’ve been negelecting my writing lately and finally decided I … Keep Reading!

Fat and Sassy

Don’t you just LOVE Thanksgiving? All that food, endless desserts and the left-overs! Yummy!Of course, if I have to eat another turkey sandwich, I’ll probably heave. LOL There’s only so many days you can eat it without needing a little change. We had a very nice gathering here. My family came over Thursday for our yearly feast. Mom cooked way to much, as usual, but I wasn’t complaining! I could eat potato salad every day … Keep Reading!

Must. Have. Sleep.

Ahh…Thanksgiving Holiday! The turkey is thawing, most of the ingredients are gathered, the kids are out of school, and guess who gets stuck baby-sitting? That’s right – ME! The joy of having a 6 year old with nothing to do. My niece, Peyton, is here for the day. I love her dearly, but lord help me she drives me batshit crazy! The child does NOT know how to be quiet. She has done nothing since … Keep Reading!
