It’s Inside, Baby!

It’s Inside, Baby!

The story I am writing exists, written in absolutely perfect fashion, some place, in the air.  All I must do is find it, and copy it.  ~Jules Renard, “Diary,” February 1895 I used to believe this.  Now, I know it’s not somewhere out there, in the air or cosmos.  No, it’s here. In the firing […]

Cool Meme

Cool Meme

Okay yeah, I’m not usually fond of memes.  But I liked this one. 🙂 Snatched it from Chandra Rooney’s blog.  And I used another quote from the same page for the favorite track.  My favorite track is I Shall Have No Sorrow To Die. 1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first […]

De-Cluttered

De-Cluttered

This is my brain on clutter. <g> Admission time.  I’ve been under too much self-inflicted pressure.  Actually, for a couple of weeks now. This weekend, I was reminded that a break is a necessary part of the process.  I know this.  Know how important it is to stop and take a breather–but sometimes, it takes […]

Still Alive, Kicking and Taking Names

Still Alive, Kicking and Taking Names

I’m neglecting my blog readers. The flogging will now commence!  Comments have slowed, but with Blog subscription feeds, I think a lot of us are reading in one place these days, so I know you still visit. I do apologize for so much silence lately on what was once a pretty damned mouthy blog.  (It will […]

Oh Yeah, Tonight is the NIGHT!

Oh Yeah, Tonight is the NIGHT!

Tornado Info

Tornado Info

People are checking in, so I’m posting that I’m fine. My family is fine. Tornadoes did damage in my area, but I’m pretty sure we didn’t get much.  We don’t have power, but my husband hooked up a generator, so we have power in a few places in the house.  My youngest and I spent a […]

Putting Up a Fight

Putting Up a Fight

It’s a challenge to stay positive some days. I woke up feeling optimistic.  Another day, another possibility.  I got much needed cleaning out of the way–had to mop because I haven’t “really” been here. I’ve been in the setting of my manuscript and last night I got a good look at MY kitchen… Around the […]
