Rinda Moments

Rinda Moments

This is my favorite work of Maxfield Parrish.  The first time I saw it was on a card my sister Kim gave me– for no particular reason.  She saw it and said it reminded her of me.  I put that card up all over the place and somewhere in the many, many moves over the years, it disappeared.  […]

Christmas Tag Play

Christmas Tag Play

Okay, I don’t usually do these tag things, but Rachel tagged me and well, I like her enough to play. <g>  But first, did any locals hear my name on the news last night?  I also don’t usually respond to the local Rant on channel four because I don’t usually agree with the opinions of most locals, but I […]

On Writing Crap

On Writing Crap

  In Freaking Love with this artist’s work.  Keep an eye on Natalie Shau.  Check out her work here.  I have several prints on my wishlist to purchase very, very soon. ************* As for me, I’m still alive and banging at this keyboard.  I mentioned short, intense bursts before and wow, did they shorten.  I […]

Grim Trixter

Grim Trixter

You’ve probably seen this as a banner to the right on this blog.  It’s the cover of a book of poetry by Brandy Schwan called Grim Trixter.  I posted it to help out the editor of Apex Digest since we developed one of those interesting Internet friendships after we both published in  the fourth issue […]

Unprofessional Snarky Book Review!

Unprofessional Snarky Book Review!

If you’re a fan of good adventure stories, I highly recommend Rogue Angel, The Spider Stone by Alex Archer!   I enjoyed the book so much, I completely blew off my own work to finish it in a rush of excitement that had me tapping my foot on the floor and cheering the characters on […]

Blogging For Connection

Blogging For Connection

Do you bloggers ever pull up your little piece of the Internet and hit a blank?  Do you think that maybe you’re just not that interesting and have nothing of importance to say?  Do you wonder why strangers out there could possibly be interested in what you cooked for dinner or how you managed your kids’ schedule?  I’m […]

It’s Santa’s Fault!  Store News!

I’m up to 147 subscribers!!  Seriously psyched here!  So, I’ll be sending out the newsletter about the new designs and the random holiday specials tomorrow.  Yes, you heard me right.  Random.  I just picked and pasted and had a bit of fun doing it.  But, I had a lot more fun making the new “Hey, […]

I’m So Bad

I’m So Bad

Yeah, a cute puppy from me is weird, but look at him.  So, I didn’t hit that extra 2000 words last night.  I ended up cooking dinner and afterward got on the phone with writer friends until later than I want to admit.  A couple of us are night owls.  Man, I had fun, though.  […]

Run By Posting

Run By Posting

Working hard today.  I planned to revise the new and much, much better chapter to get to Rachel, but was sidetracked by my own story and wrote around 2000 new words instead.  This is a good thing!! 😉 So, since I’m pretty sure I can knock out another 2000, I’m headed back.  My right hand is […]

Election Day at the Snark

Election Day at the Snark

Picture by bratty sister, Jana, who doesn’t understand the importance of personal space.  Your sniffling, yet friendly snarky writer freaked out a local elementary school today.  You see, last year she voted at that particular school and since she didn’t look at the bottom of her new handy, dandy voter registration card, she didn’t know […]
