My, How Times Flies #Anniversary #Blogging

According to WordPress, I registered on WordPress.com 15 years ago. I wasn't planning to post anything today, but when this image popped up in my notifications, I took it as a sign that I should write ... something. Alas, words do not pour out of me, at least not onto paper or my computer screen.… Continue reading My, How Times Flies #Anniversary #Blogging

Mi Casa, Su Casa #amwriting #MondayBlogs

Still under construction. Mind that step. Things are changing around here. Just baby steps right now, but so far I'm enjoying the process. As I've already written about here and here, I'm trying to give my blog a more professional appearance. At least more organized. I'll settle for that. I've added a page for my… Continue reading Mi Casa, Su Casa #amwriting #MondayBlogs

Update: On Hold Yet Again #HurricaneIrma #TGIF

We are fine. Irma was still a bitch but in lowercase letters. We prepared for the worst and it didn't happen, at least not to us. We have power and some minor debris to clean up, but that's it. So, now, please turn your attention back to those are still suffering from Harvey and Irma,… Continue reading Update: On Hold Yet Again #HurricaneIrma #TGIF

Throwback: I AM therefore I write

Following is a post from May 24, 2008.  I had had my blog for several months, but was still finding my way.  [And, frankly, I'm still finding my way but the journey is fun.  I don't know that I really want to make my destination.]  I'm re-posting for two reasons: (1) to remind myself how… Continue reading Throwback: I AM therefore I write

A Word from the Author of Clemency, A Novel in Progress

Hey, everybody, I feel like I've been so deep in NaNoWriMo land and posting the progress of my WIP, Clemency, that you all may have forgotten what I look like. Yes, I now have blue hair as well as pink.  In the right light, my husband says I look patriotic.  It's just a streak of… Continue reading A Word from the Author of Clemency, A Novel in Progress

Frazzled But Not Fizzle-d

A couple of months ago, I wrote a Dear John letter.  This was a true Dear John letter in that it went to my friend and fellow blogger John Howell (author of the thriller My GRL), to tell him that I was bowing out of our Monday collaboration at the end of our first year. … Continue reading Frazzled But Not Fizzle-d

Writer’s Rebel Creed Revisited: February Edition

About a month ago, I pledged to The Writer's Rebel Creed 2014, developed by Sheri A. Larsen, in collaboration with followers of her blog.  (If you want to "pledge," all you need to do is sign up on her blog by clicking here.) Now, the Creed is not terribly hard to follow, at least at first… Continue reading Writer’s Rebel Creed Revisited: February Edition

I’m Busy

I've been a little busy lately.  First, responsibilities and obligations at my day job have increased since my bureau chief retired, and another coworker has been working less than half-time due to medical problems, and we still have a vacant position.  As my supervisor noted, she and I are "doing the work of five people." … Continue reading I’m Busy
