Goosing Dana

Goosing Dana

I’m not a cowboy, but I am an outlaw. Look at us goofs. We actually had a small turnout for the the Oklahoma Romance writers In August, but the lady in the purple cowboy hat on the bottom brought a bunch of extra hats for our photo. She writes as Georgina Gentry and her specialty? […]

Anita Blake

Anita Blake

For those of you who are fans of early Anita Blake books, don’t you think she’d be perfect? This post gets such a huge amount of traffic and I’ve had to delete some pretty rude comments.  People, this is an opinion. This actress hasn’t been picked for the role but I still believe she has […]

Here’s to Sisters

Here’s to Sisters

Shirley MacLaine blows me away. I’m mesmerized by the characters she chooses to portray as well as her performance for each and every one. She has a way of making you forget you’re watching an act. There are movies of hers that break my heart, yet I will watch them just for her. Terms of […]

Scene From a Pic– With a New Twist…

For those new to the Snark, I post a picture every ten days or so and we all write. It can be a line, a scene, a plot– whatever that picture inspires you to write. The next time, I will post the pic again along with your writing and links to your blog or website […]

Words, Laughter and a Quiz!

Words, Laughter and a Quiz!

As a writer, it’s probably not too surprising that I find words interesting. When I’m working, I’ll have a thesaurus open and my favorite writing book called The Describer’s Dictionary is always near at hand. (Seriously good tip there for writers– check it out! Amazon.com: The Describer’s Dictionary: A Treasury of Terms and Literary Quota […]

Her determination and spirit is inspiring and I ask that you help cheer her fight on by visiting her blog and offering encouragement. Beware the Pink Spyder’s Web And I’d like […]

Good Friends, Good Books

Good Friends, Good Books

I met with two friends today — one I haven’t seen in a long, long time despite the fact we only live about 45 minutes from each other. She’s moving away. My time gets so sucked up by kids, family and my writing career, I look up and before I realize it I’ve missed out […]

Let’s All Be Amazon Alien Beauties!

Pulled out some older CDs for fun today while working. The first was Donald Fagen. Some people are going “Who?” (Steely Dan might ring a bell or two. ) I’d forgotten how much I liked a couple of his CDs from the eighties. When I went to look up the videos to my two favs– […]

Wanted: Armadillo Skin

Wanted:  Armadillo Skin

As you know, back to school activities have my head spinning right now. I’ve also been to/had three big friends or family gatherings since Friday. So, after receiving yet another rejection and stumbling upon yet another icky review of some published work, I decided to take a short break from Internet Land. I probably should […]
