Excellent Day!

| February 29, 2012

Yesterday was amazing. I spent it with my girl and our friends. One friend had a birthday so we did some celebrating! We started at a cemetery. You might not think that sounds like fun? I’ve always enjoyed cemeteries. They’re like walking through history.  Not always a happy walk, but I’m drawn to the stories […]

I actually thought it was Saturday. The week appears to be out of my control! Too much fun yesterday! I’m glad I whined on my blog about feeling too pushed to play instead of canceling on the fun or whining at the beloved about making me go out. (I may have done that once or […]

Random Wednesday

| February 22, 2012

This is about to become one of those days… The beloved has planned fun for us. And then he told me about it. I’m crazy busy right now so I feel rushed and panicked. You can’t really do much to create more time. Anyway, instead of whining (any more), I thought I’d do a quick […]

I’m judging two contests right now, and they seem to be taking a lot of my time. One is for the RWA published authors, the Ritas. I always enjoy that contest because I often find new authors I enjoy reading after the contest as well. The other is a chapter contest for unpublished authors. I […]

Only Thursday?

| February 16, 2012

Seems as if it’s Friday. Surely, it’s Friday already? No? Just feels that way. Since I thought it was Friday, I thought I’d be random, and I took a photo of my screensaver, with covers of my random music taste. I may not know what day it is (consequence of working from home), but I […]

Writerly Doings!

| February 15, 2012

I have lots to do. Judging two contests–must do something for each of them. Fortunately, I love to read! Revising book–need to do at least a chapter. New pages on new idea–word count! Family stuff–girly still finding her belly after latest bug. Must persuade her to eat something healthy! Also, must finalize cabinet choice for bathroom […]

Tuesday Dawns, Randomly!

| February 14, 2012

And I can get back to work! Yesterday didn’t turn out as I’d planned. I’m going to end up on one of those People of WalMart videos, dressed crazy, looking even crazier, buying virus remedies at 3 am. And then heading back, still without sleep, to pick up more remedies. Sadly, I scared myself, glancing […]

Up All Night

| February 13, 2012

With a sick child. Oh, the bugs she catches! For comfort, we watched Elf and wished it were the holiday season all over again. They (the holidays) flew past this year, and neither of us can believe it’s mid-February. I’m exhausted. So, tiny post, to start the week because one of my goals is to […]

Friday? Where will my desk be today?

| February 10, 2012

I’ve been working in lots of different places this week, and I’ve been producing lots of words. (Let’s not discuss how deeply those words will need to be edited, but there are lots of words.) Take a look at yesterday’s office. Bookstore, and college bookstore. It was so crowded I had to take a photo […]

Writers in the Making

| February 9, 2012

Some neighborhood children came to our door the other day. The beloved was downstairs, and I was up, so he got the door. The kindren spun him a tale that began with “Our grandma is really, really sick in another country across the sea…” The beloved isn’t easily fooled, and this was no exception. They […]
