Midweek #ROW80 Progress Report

Posted on

I’m sitting here having just fought off an epic case of complicatitis.  I haven’t gotten a whole heck of a lot written the last week.  Last Thursday I headed down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to visit my pal, horror writer, Lisa Kroger.  I think my laptop came out MAYBE once?  The tarot cards (I […]

I’ll Be Your Huckleberry

Posted on

So last week was unabashedly awful.  We cried a lot.  I apparently made a bunch of other people cry with my post.  Sorry about that.  But I’ve found some peace with the whole situation.  She had a long, VERY well loved life and I know we did absolutely every single possible thing that could be […]

Dear Daisy

The floor looks all wrong. I thought you should know that, being that you’re now in a position to run the Universe like you always wanted (I presume that flash storm we had yesterday afternoon was the coup you staged shortly after your arrival upstairs).  I hope you find the minions there to your satisfaction.

The Middle School Crush

Posted on

So the last couple of weeks, I’ve been intermittently spewing out notes on a new quartet of bunnies (or maybe it’s just a four-headed single bunny, really) that deals with four lifelong friends.  Lots of history between them and a lot of bits and pieces from their growing up years that come back in the […]

Patio Envy and Backyard DIY Projects

Posted on

We live on a hill.  There’s a privacy fence running all around the back yard, but because of said hill, we can easily see over it from our back porch and into our back neighbor’s yard.  This gave us a bird’s eye view of their project last weekend–which was to build an epic deck off […]

#ROW80 Round 2 Goals

Posted on

It’s already time for Round 2 goals for A Round of Words In 80 Days. I’ve had this window open for an hour, looking for five minutes to scribble down goals, and I keep getting interrupted.  It’s totally that kind of Monday. So okay, let’s keep this short and sweet. Continue to publish one recipe […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Posted on

So Monday went well.  I knocked out a fair chunk of a scene that’s been giving me trouble.  Did some playing in my sandbox for the new website I’m designing (Lord knows when that will be rolled out).  Picked out a new theme to go with that.  And the rest of the week feels like […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Posted on

I’ve officially de-Christmased the house.  That’s only 2 weeks overdue.  I don’t want to talk about how many needles there were…  I did locate my missing Christmas tree topper, so that was a happy surprise. I’ve been plotting this weekend on the next Wishful novel.  It’s been hanging out in the concept stage for quite […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Posted on

Well, I’ve had an unexpected short week at work due to a cold.  I can’t remember the last time I had a true cold and not allergies or a sinus infection.  It always makes me think of that scene in You’ve Got Mail where Joe comes to bring Kathleen flowers and tucks her into bed.  I’m […]
