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!

When life happens well
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
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…
Serendipity comes when least expected
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

That's okay, though. Finding a writing routine was easier before my husband lost his job. With him out of the house, it … Continue reading Progress, but no routine yet

It's worked for me, with varying degrees of success, so far, but there are myriad reasons and resources out there that will explain in great detail that one of the key tools in … Continue reading I need a routine!
ROW80 Challenge Check-in
I joined this challenge late, and in keeping with that general theme I'm getting off to what can only be described as a slow start. I haven't done any writing of note, but that's not to say I haven't done any writing. Given that even a few weeks ago the amount of my writing was … Continue reading ROW80 Challenge Check-in
Another writing challenge
Ooo, look! A writing challenge! Can I keep it?! Can I? Can I? Pleeeeeeease?!!! Writing challenges. They're like pretty, shiny objects that I just have to have. Or a furry little kitty cat that I want to curl up with and cuddle. I will hug it and squeeze it and call it George. But it … Continue reading Another writing challenge
For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn. I don’t know if it’s true that Ernest Hemingway won a bet by writing, and consequently inventing, the six-word story. Reports vary. But since my fiction writing leans to the short side, six words comprising a complete story holds a charm I can’t deny. I’ve played with the genre … Continue reading Vignettes, anyone?
