“Blizzard” Pics

See that small fenced square?  That’s the historical grave site on our property. Two graves inside. And… The Photographer. Isn’t she adorable?

Still Plugging Away

Still Plugging Away

I’ve reached a point where the story is driving my life.  In fact, I get frustrated when I get tired.  Even my thighs are sore from holding this lap desk so much, yet I continue to go.  It’s just so alive right now.  I want a lap desk that doesn’t actually sit on my  legs.  <g>  […]

Planned Reward

Planned Reward

I’m such a dork.  My reward for either finishing this next book fast or selling the first one is this.  It comes out in June and I’m excited about it.  (This video is fun!) http://thesims3.ea.com/view/pages/videos.jsp Yes, I play the Sims.  It’s been a while, but a local artist I like, Nene Thomas, has been showing the fun […]

Live For This

Live For This

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.  ~Ray Bradbury Last night, I wrote until the words blurred and my fingers starting tripping over themselves.  This morning, when my husband got up at five, I shocked him by not griping and going immediately back to sleep.  I got up.  Granted, I haven’t […]

Excerpt While You Wait

I’m taking a few days off the blogs and Twitter to play with the kiddos during the last of spring break. I’ve been letting them sleep in and getting up early to work on my WIP.  This afternoon we went to the movies and scarfed buttery popcorn while my daughter shushed my muffled chuckling.  And […]

Emotional Glimpses-Sharing Today

Emotional Glimpses-Sharing Today

Quite the emotional weekend for me.  First up, and don’t laugh, my daughter got her driver’s license.  We showed up at the DMV around 6:30 and stood in freezing drizzle in line forever for that test.  I made her laugh through most of it.  Poor thing was sooo nervous.  But I do think a driver’s test […]
