Greetings, from "the editing cave" where I'm busy revising The Love Square. Here's a list of some things I've learned: I have a lot of "staring" happening. He stared at her, she stared at him, etc. etc. I'm working on it, people. There's no good word for a female half-laugh-- "giggle" sounds too silly and "chuckled" … Continue reading Cave Dwelling with Gobo and Eugene
Two years ago, I wrote a blog post on Halloween night discussing whether I should take part in NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. I did do NaNo that year and "won," meaning I wrote 50,000 words in the month of November. That first draft sucked. But for the next year and a half I worked … Continue reading Juggling November

Admittedly, it's not the first time that happened, but now JC can add "damp, mildewy, and dank" to … Continue reading Help! I Lost My Mind and Forgot Where I Put It!

It's lovely to have the lakes in our neighborhood and to me, they are the shining point of our … Continue reading Mother’s Day Stuff
For those of you who don't know, I was recently "restructured" out of a job. Remember my lovely job in downtown Trenton? (I posted about Trenton here and here). Well, it is no more. On one hand, this is not terrible. I wasn't thrilled with the job anyway and financially and emotionally, it made sense … Continue reading On Time and More of It
From the Daily Post's Daily Prompt: Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab? My MacBook (wouldn't want it to melt with my masterpieces living inside). My cell phone (to call 911 and so kids can watch Netflix at shelter/hotel). Our coats (it's friggin … Continue reading AHH, the House is on Fire! Or, L’Eggo my Eggo!
