What day is it?

| November 28, 2016

When you work at home, and you don’t have any other responsibilities for a few days, you start to lose track. I’ve enjoyed that. I’ve been baking and embroidering and binge-watching Paranoid on Netflix. And also writing. Lots of times, I put off doing the things I want to do for the things I should […]

Random Thursday

| September 8, 2016

Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift broke up. I’m ashamed of myself for this because I’ve liked many of Taylor Swift’s songs, but I got all judgey toward Tom H when he started dating her. I love Tom H. He’s an amazing actor, and his voice… And–well, I was rooting for him to be Bond, James […]

Friday at Random

| October 9, 2015

I love the phrase, “at random.” Don’t know why. Some words just feel good and sound good. It’s Friday, and I have too much to do, so this is going to be a random post. Just things that pop into my head. The clouds have rolled in. I love cloudy days. And the leaves are […]

A New Attitude

| October 8, 2015

I’m about to confess a thing or two. A year ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes. At the same time, I was writing the first full-length book on my Heartwarming contract. The diabetes was really bad. Four days in the hospital and insulin four times a day. (Although, with good fitness habits, excellent nutrition advice, […]

I love a nice long Friday, stretching out its possibilities! I could go shop for clothing for a conference I’m attending next month. I could head right now to the gym to beat the rush. I could leap into the pool while the water might still be coolish. Or I could write at the speed […]

Missed my goal yesterday. Instead of 15 pages, I wrote 11. I’m not too upset about it. I’ve realized I’m winding to the end of the Fast Draft portion of the class. I have the bones of the story, and I need to start thinking seriously about the revision. Today, I’m tired, and I’m meeting […]

Coffee and Thinking

| May 22, 2012

Another night, another set of hours for staring at the dark ceiling. Insomnia is a surly non-friend. I’ve given up the nightly brawl with sleep and fueled up the coffee pot. I’ve been thinking about my book, and about another story I’d like to write, a novella for a publisher who’s looking for shorter e-stories, […]

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 […]
