Nonsense

Oh, the life of a writer. Whatever! as Ronie would say. This manuscript is killing me. Still have about 10K at add. But I think it’s going to be really rich for it. Characters are coming out, as well as character traits and quirks. Love it! So, yes, Heather, I am blogging. See? Let’s have a par-tey! There will be …

Firefly, the TV Series

If you liked the movie, Serenity, then I highly recommend the TV series, Firefly. Joss Whedon’s characters are worth studying and the subtexted dialogue is excellent. This is story and writing ing its highest form. Now I will warn you, there is violence and some sexual situations, but I’m sure you know how to press the fast forward button if …

Serenity, The Movie

Last night I had the honor of seeing a prescreening of Serenity, the movie based on Joss Whedon’s series, Firefly. True to his nature, Whedon delivers a story with high action, unexpected turns and great subtext. The characters are completely true to the original series and pretty much pick up where it left off. The effects were handled well and …

I’m A Slug…

Oh, Heather will just love this one! I title this blog in honor of our mutual sluggishness. We’ve come back from conference happy, but fried! And not the Kentucky variety. Conference was fantastic. Made some great connections with some of the most fastastic people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I am truly honored. And I’m already planning …

Off To Conference

Well, happy campers, T-time is two days and counting. All the time spent getting ready for conference, and neglecting my blog, culminates early Monday morning as I catch a plane to Nashville. Please don’t ask me if I’m packed yet. I’m going a couple days early to catch some time with a friend in Memphis. Then I shoot back Nashville …

The Little Man That Lives in My Daughter’s Purse

Yes, there is a little man that resides in my daughter’s purse. His name is Edgar Allan Poe, and he is a six-inch action figure. If you ask her why, she’ll tell you, “He just does.” What amazes me is, she can always tell you where Edgar is, but she can’t tell you where her house key is. The sanity …

Spiritual Wasteland

Ever been there? Well, I’ll be honest. I’m residing there at the moment. And let me tell ya, it’s a really dry place. I don’t like wastelands. Lush greenery is my preference. Lots of running streams, fruit trees, moist earth. A wasteland is defined as an unused area of land that has become barren or overgrown. So, how does one …

A Modern Day Pentecost

Oh my! It’s been a while. Special thanks to Heather for reminding me. She’s such a doll! Big news? I finished my book. I’m now doing edits and getting it ready to pitch at the ACFW conference in September. I have a second book I need to finish for that same reason. Yes, I am a very busy person at …

Exact Change

Hey there! I’m finally back from my cross country trip. What an adventure. We saw some pretty interesting things along the way. And, we are now more familiar with our own country. I am incredibly grateful for that. But what I’m most grateful for is the strengthening of our family ties that resulted. My hope and prayer is that it …

Family

Smiling shyly, I type in the words of my next blog. Yes, it’s been over a week. But you know how vacations can be. I’m not on the road at the moment. Actually I’m in Florida visiting family. That’s what this trip was all about—family. Families are amazing entities. The bonds that hold them together are an enigma to me …
