Well, I do believe the time has come to return to the real world of make-believe. And by that I mean I had a wonderful visit with my older boy and let myself wallow a bit when he returned home last week. So now it's time to start writing again. I have no excuses and … Continue reading Back to work!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
What do you love to read? My favourite book is The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak and my favourite short story is "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury. I could read either of these any time.
If it ain’t broke…
This has been an intriguing past few days for me. And I mean that in a good way. Mostly, I think it comes down to my realisation that I've fallen in love with writing again. It's a pretty cool feeling, right...when you're doing something that you enjoy so much you lose track of time when … Continue reading If it ain’t broke…
Time for another ROW80 check-in! Posting to my blog. I have actually posted to my blog, other than a ROW80 check-in, so I'm counting that as a success this week. The goal was to post at least once a week. At some point, I'd like to bump that number up, but for now ... baby … Continue reading ROW80 check-in

But last year, at least the last bit, was more difficult than I expected. This has brought me to a point where I'm … Continue reading Happy 2019!

But I want, no... need, to make a change. Something's gotta' give and if I have anything to say about it, it won't be my … Continue reading Here I go again
Short Story Month
I learned today that May is Short Story Month in the States. This makes me happy, not only because I like short stories so much but also because my own story will come out on the 29th. 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 hope everyone has a happy day today. I've always thought the best way to stay out of trouble, whether or not you're superstitious, is to curl up somewhere comfy with a good book and just get lost in the pages.
World Book Day!
Today is World Book Day. How cool is that? As someone who has loved books and reading since I was little, it makes me happy that books have their own special day of recognition. I'm also amused that as I sat down to write this post, my Amazon delivery interrupted the process. I don't mind. … Continue reading World Book Day!
