Busy Week and Critiquing

Busy Week and Critiquing

  I swear I’m still alive and kicking.  This has just been a busy week– but a good one since my hard work will pay off.   I slammed on the paying job as well as the hopefully, last round of rewrites on the book. (I gave up sleep several nights <g>.)  I have three chapters to finish […]

Mmm… Brains

Mmm… Brains

Top edit: Editing here because my husband just said something funny.  He and my son keep tossing this little football back and forth in the living room.  Back and forth.  Back and forth.  I finally sigh and ask what’s fun about throwing a ball?  He said it was a guy thing.  I said maybe we […]

Apex Halloween Raffles Rock!

Apex Halloween Raffles Rock!

Last year, I won a signed Midnight Syndicate CD in the Apex Raffle.  I’m hoping my luck carries over to this years because the prizes are fantastic!  I want the box with Dexter and the best Star Trek episodes!!!!  Oh, there’s also a box of books from Abaddon Books and this great Ray Bradbury book […]

Sunday Morning Ramble- Digging Deep

Sunday Morning Ramble- Digging Deep

When we’re children, we come up with our own explanations and ideas of certain things.  Most often, we grow up and learn we were pretty far off.  For me, one of those things was hippos.  Weren’t expecting that, were you?   I’d only seen them in zoos.  They looked like kind, lumbering giants with ugly-cute faces.  […]

Yummy and Funny Randomness

Yummy and Funny Randomness

Dinner was interesting tonight.  I was making this new quiche where you line a crispy, cheese and bacon crust at the bottom of a pie pan, then pour the quiche over the top.  (Since this was a recipe I completely doctored, therefore making it my own… and since this was the first try for the […]

The Cat. The Mouse. And the Strawber...

The Cat. The Mouse.  And the Strawberry.

So, I was running late and had to get to the office.  (I’m now going in a couple of times a week.)  My son was running late for the bus and we’re racing about when the cat suddenly goes crazy in the kitchen.  He dashes behind the wine rack tray in the corner, rattling the bottles. […]

Monday Poetry Train-Big Freaking Wind...

Monday Poetry Train-Big Freaking Windows

I dug up an old one since I’ve missed weeks of the poetry train.  I always meant to go back and redo this one.  I still might.   It’s completely disjointed, lacking in style, but I think there’s something salvageable. This monster poured out in one rough go after… er, a period of intense anger…  😉 […]

SFAP Goof!

SFAP Goof!

I’ve had a rough week, so I must apologize for goofing up the SFAP.  I left out one of the entries and I still don’t know how I did that since it’s in the correct place.  I had spent so long trying to repair formatting issues, I was frustrated and just hit the publish too […]

SFAP–Halloween is Coming!

SFAP–Halloween is Coming!

It’s late. I’m terribly sorry, but life is spanking us in a big way lately, so I’m a bit behind in most everything.  Plus, I’m having terrible font issues with this blog, so please be patient with me.  I’m having to work on each post for very long periods of time to get them to […]

Not Brave–Just Open

Not Brave–Just Open

LOL!  I’ve had several writers email me about my bravery in yesterday’s post.   Sharing rough work is always a tricky thing to do.  It can possibly color a potential reader’s view of your work so they decide to never actually pay for your future work.  Or, if you’re lucky, they may see something they like and […]
