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
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.

As you can imagine, the mile-long paved pathway around the lakes is a magnet for dog walkers, joggers, bikers, strollers.

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.
