The Reader Fav Photo Game

The Reader Fav Photo Game

My readers are having such fun with this picture.  Have to say, I’ve needed the amusement.  The wait on Dweller… while exciting, is still… well… a wait.   I’m the type who loves to jump right into everything, which is great for finishing books.  Not so great when you’re looking forward to finding out who might […]

Excited About This Book!!!!

Excited About This Book!!!!

I don’t know what I did to get Kim Harrison’s widget to work on the left, but I’ve had no luck with any of the others from Harper.  Grr.  But I’ve been looking forward to this book.  Big Time!!!  Since the cool widget will NOT work on WordPress, here’s a direct link.  This is the […]

Hobbled

I feel like I’ve been in a fight.  Swam yesterday and was having a blast going down a slide with my friend’s daughter.  But I went over and over and at some point, the bottom of the pool tore my feet up.  Plus, you use a lot of muscles playing in the water.  Muscles used […]

Weekend Quote

Weekend Quote

“Black are the brooding clouds and troubled the deep waters, when the Sea of Thought, first heaving from a calm, gives up its Dead” Charles Dickens   Note:  I’ve changed the amount of posts that load on this page to hopefully make reader loading time better.  As XDell pointed out, I’m highly visual so I […]

Changin’ Snark

Changin’ Snark

I’ve decided to keep the title The Write Snark for my store alone.  I’ll be changing the name of this blog.  While the title fits the store completely, it doesn’t really suit me or what I’ll be publishing. Hopefully soon, right??  Positive thoughts, right? 😉   Haven’t decided what that title will be.  In the meantime, […]

Last of Conference Photos

Last of Conference Photos

I have a few more to share and then we’re done.  This page is going to be hard to load as it is. Kathleen took these with her cell and sent them on.  Like this one of my dad and myself much better. <g> Writing news:  I’m cramming on the day job.  It’s the last […]

Day After Conference

Day After Conference

I promised more pics from the conference, but don’t have my grubby paws on them yet, so here ya go.  Day after. 😉 Someone inevitably has a party on my return day after OWFI.  I’m usually exhausted and grumpy that I can’t curl up in my sweats at home to take advantage of the creative […]

OWFI 2008 Conference Photos

My father, Bob Hinkle (also a writer) with me.  Such a flattering shot.  I shouldn’t even share it, but my Dad looks cool, eh?  Six foot five and handsome as ever!

Don’t Sabotage Yourself

Don’t Sabotage Yourself

Should have some conference pics tomorrow.  I didn’t end up getting the writing day yesterday.  My employer needed a last minute rush job.  While I missed my writing day, I did end up witha  great sense of accomplishment last night.   Shoving two days of work into one is difficult and made my right hand ache like crazy, it […]
