So, just when we'd resigned ourselves to waiting a year before house hunting again, using the time to build credit scores and fixing up this place, one of our friends came to me and said, "Are you still looking for a place or have you found one?" When I said we hadn't yet, she said, "Would...
I was going to start a thread for this elsewhere, but couldn't decide where the proper place would be for it, so I figured, hey, just blog it . . . I've put all of my books on sale everywhere including my publishing site to which I've added new Buy links to a more secure service. Payment is...
Cover design can be fun and addictive. And a huge challenge. But I have the images I wanted from the outset, albeit in silhouette form except for Devynn who now now possesses those purple eyes I wanted to badly. Thanks to Jack of all trades. Here are some versions. I wonder if I should post...
Here's a couple of memes I did today to cope with my disappointment of having to wait yet another year for a house . . . Yeah, they beat our scores down 15 points for my hubby, and 40 for one of mine. I fortunately, didn't ask for an update from Equifax, so that one is three points down because...
Aren't we all attracted to shiny things and bright lights to some extent. They arrest your attention and either you get drawn in further or you try to block them out. Then there's the shiny things and bright lights of all those neat offers from people you've let into your email address. Your...
I've finally finished my young adult novel today. I'm really glad I went over it one more time. I'm sure there are a few flaws I missed, but I caught some big ones I can't believe I missed the last time through. Also had to do some research to make sure my legal facts were right and I'm happy...
I just checked out my total sales from the book stores Draft2Digital distributes to - which I haven't ever done in the two years I've been using them - and see that most of my sales - okay, downloads - come from Barnes and Noble. A handful from Apple, and Inktera, and finally Tolino, which...
Don't you hate it when you think you've finished a story draft, go back to it after a while - years in my case - and can only find copies of the story that all end at the same point or before that even? I wrote a short story I called The Disciplining of Mom. And I am so sure I finished that...
Can't believe April is just about over! Where did the time go? While I accomplished a good bit of writing, I didn't get to play with poetry as much as I'd wanted to for the month. I'm still working on one that I hope I can pop in tomorrow last minute. If not, I'll just post it here or in the...
I am scared silly For the coming month. What have I committed to? A poem a day! My head wants to explode Even now - Just two days before! Can I do it? Will I fail? How long does said poem Need to be? Two lines? Ten? A piece of epic proportions? I obsess, I worry, I doubt...
This being my first blog post here, I find I'm not sure what exactly to write. I should update all my website blogs; I'm notoriously bad at that. I used to be much more diligent at it back when I had my very first website called DreamWind Whispers. Created it all by my lonesome with help from my...
