Happy Blog-iversary WOAW!

In January of 2013, I started this blog and wrote a post. I hit "publish" even though I had zero followers and hadn't invited anyone to read it. Here's part of what I wrote: I don’t know where my ideas will come from, or if I will ever even have another one, never mind a … Continue reading Happy Blog-iversary WOAW!

If I Ran the World

If I Ran the World, The work week would be four days. People would be more efficient because they'd know they only have four days to get their work done, and they'd be grateful for the three-day weekends. Think about it. Grocery stores would be designed so you'd walk into the dry foods section, then … Continue reading If I Ran the World

Bold Statement of the Day- I Invented Apple Pay

Well Hi There! (Alternatively titled: I’m not doing Christmas cards)

Blogtropolis! What's up? I feel a little like Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed on that first day she goes back to high school. Poking around WordPress, my old stomping grounds, trying to fit in again with the cool kids (you). I've been gone for so long. Sorry. I've been writing, just not here. Somewhere along the … Continue reading Well Hi There! (Alternatively titled: I’m not doing Christmas cards)

NaNo Update and The Daily Prompt

Hi Everyone! Well, I'm still chugging along with my word count for National Novel Writing Month but wanted to take some time out to post an update. My problem now seems to be that my NaNo story is going in a totally different direction than I'd planned. If "characters drive plot" then my characters are … Continue reading NaNo Update and The Daily Prompt
