Accountability Blog?

I think I’m going to use this blog to motivate myself. I’ve only got about 10k to add to one of my books and then it’s done! Yet I drag my feet. Hubby flies out tomorrow for a week and a half, so I plan to work and write a lot. Hopefully. By this time next week I want to …

I Said No.

I had the most wonderful and liberating experience today. I told a car salesman, “no.” LOL! I know that sounds funny, but if you had my experiences, and regrets, with car salesman, you’d be celebrating with me. I really hate that pushy, dishonest mentality. Now granted, not all car salesman are like that, but the ones I’ve dealt with were. …

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 …
