Hey everyone! No, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth. Life has been, well, life. One of the things I've found most interesting lately is the whole 'cockygate' situation. You know what it breaks down to? Someone who was so totally insecure about their own writing that they chose to not do the … Continue reading Time to check your author privilege
Yes, we can
I know, it's been a while. Not just for my blog, but writing in general. Life has a way of doing that. On Friday night, the hubby and I headed to a baseball game. We'd planned to take our youngest, but he got sick. So, I offered the ticket to a friend of mine. She … Continue reading Yes, we can
Celebrating a milestone
Ten years ago, I wasn't writing. I still listened to the voice in my head that said I would never do anything close to good enough for a publisher, so it wasn't worth trying. And so my muse stayed quiet, locked in her cage. We'd been playing in a Dungeons and Dragons game for over … Continue reading Celebrating a milestone
Stop the excuses!
Hey everyone! Really glad right now that there's no video involved with this blog. LOL. Just got finished with some time on my bike, and I'm a hot, sweaty mess. LOL. While I was pedaling, I reminded myself that I don't like to live my life by excuses. Not with my weight any more. In … Continue reading Stop the excuses!
Flying high but staying grounded
It's Monday! It's been an interesting week since I last posted. In some ways, I'm still processing everything. And it was all good things! First off, I found out I'm now on the short list for Author of the Year from Whole Life Activation, a group in London, England that celebrates women making a difference. … Continue reading Flying high but staying grounded
Let’s talk about whining
Hey! It's Monday! It's getting colder out. I threw on a jacket this morning before driving our youngest to school. And am now swathed in one of my dad's cardigans. I want to talk about one of the worst behaviors as an adult. It's not just a writer problem. But we need to stop whining … Continue reading Let’s talk about whining
Challenging myself, and any other author who wants to join in
Hey! It's Monday! I'm blogging again! Woot! I thought a lot this weekend about how I prioritize things when it comes to writing and promoting. And I realized something. I spend a whole lot of time checking the ranking of my books. Or for new reviews. And a lot less on actively promoting my books. … Continue reading Challenging myself, and any other author who wants to join in
Responsibility and the Rabbit Hole
Hey! Not sure how many have missed me, but I'm still here and kicking! For almost two years now, I've been in a rabbit hole of sorts. Losing my mom in 2015, followed by my dad in 2016. My youngest being assaulted at school, and the case still pending. Life in general put a lot … Continue reading Responsibility and the Rabbit Hole
Waiting things out
Nine years ago, something happened in my life. For most people, they'd wonder why a D&D character would make any sort of impact in real life. Perchance I was a bit TOO connected to her. The thing is, that group of friends had been meeting every single Saturday for about 2 1/2 years. We too … Continue reading Waiting things out
What a week!
Good morning! So, vacation's this week. We're off later this morning to get the a/c fixed in my van. Not a terribly fun thing on vacation, but it also means I don't sit at the dealership for 6 hours. LOL The house is still quiet. Right now, it's just me and the cats awake. And … Continue reading What a week!
