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!
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.
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
Ooo, it's a brand new year! So here's a shiny new post for the new beginning. I usually enjoy the changing of the years, the turning from the old to the new.

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
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.
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!
