Laboring on Labor Day

| September 5, 2016

Submitting to agents today! I’m excited and terrified. It’s a writer’s life! Posting a picture of rain pelting the pool because this sun and heat are slaying me, so I’m trying magical thinking! Wishing you lots of leisure and fun, good food, and good times with friends!

I have never been so busy.

| November 18, 2015

Fall has finally arrived. My favorite time of the year makes everything easier. I feel the heat as if I’m sporting a rhino on my shoulders, so even though I’m so busy I don’t know what day it is, I’m utterly happy. (Such a lovely feeling!) I find myself writing at midnight. Possibly falling asleep […]

Randomly Monday

| July 13, 2015

Lots going on! I’ve been swimming like a–person who likes to exercise by swimming. I tried painting some more of the office. Tooooooo hottttttt! And I’ve been writing.

Monday, you’ve arrived too soon!

| November 10, 2014

But then every day is too soon right now. Time is flying by. I have a deadline. I’m trying to balance life and work, but I’ve never been entirely successful at doing that. Recently, I was diagnosed with diabetes, but I found out the hard way by getting really sick, and it was scary. Since […]

Two in a Row!

| October 15, 2014

Almost a record. I’m posting two days in a row! Every year my aunts and my cousin and I have a girl’s week. We meet in the mountains in Tennessee and do wonderful things. Like crocheting, knitting, watching our favorite shows (always I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show), walking and eating and talking […]

Whoa. Longest gap between posts, ever!
