I love that the UK has a day dedicated to writing. This makes me happy.
I have to admit, I think it's kind of funny that shortly after I blog about falling in love with writing again, life happens to throw a great big wrench in my writing plans. But it's such a happy wrench I don't really care. I do like it when life does such a good job. … Continue reading When life happens well
Omygoshomygoshomygosh! You guys, I'm so ridiculously happy I can't stop grinning. Even when I'm sleeping. I woke up in the middle of the night last night and realised there was a great big grin on my face...at 2a.m. My oldest boy surprised me by coming to visit! I had no clue...he was very good at … Continue reading Happy momma, right here!
I don't think my son is going to follow in Christiane Amanpour's footsteps, but I do think he did a good job interviewing his grandmother several years ago for a school project. I'd forgotten all about it. With my re-awakened interest in my mother-in-law's story about her boyfriend during WWII, it's a bit of serendipity … Continue reading Serendipity comes when least expected
Woo hoo! My story "Spelling Tests and Other Life Events" has appeared in the latest edition of Clamor, the lit journal for University of Washington, Bothell. You can read it online here. I'm so happy it's found a home I could purr; it got a couple rejections before getting accepted. I'm rather proud of this … Continue reading My story is published!

I find that rather apropos. Although I've written stories for as long as I can remember, it wasn't … Continue reading Short Story Month
I like happy coincidences. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Facebook reminded me that I had a flash fiction piece published two years ago today. And I've received word that one of my short stories will appear in the 2018 issue of Clamor, the University of Washington-Bothell's literary journal. It will come out on 29th May. … Continue reading Yay for me!
I'll admit, it's not quite as good as my birthday. But still tons of fun. And like most other cats, I do try to enjoy myself whenever possible. I will probably curl up with a good book at some point. However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day.
Woo hoo! I’ve won something! Not money — even better. I won a book! (Seriously, what could be better than winning a book?) Through the awesome site 101 Words, I’ve won the e-book 55 Words by Anushree Nande. I have really taken to flash fiction lately, both reading and writing it. So it will be great … Continue reading I won a book!
