I do not write to escape

There are some people who write to escape the stresses of everyday life. I am not one. Publishes authors, and even people who journal or write for a hobby sometimes say that writing is their way of escaping. It is where they turn when everything else seems to be too much. I am not that […]

Have you read?… “Z: A novel of Zelda Fitzgerald ” (#2)

I’ll confess, I might have picked up the book originally because I saw that Amazon is doing a series based on this book, but I actually enjoyed it more than I  thought.  It is a fictional work, but the author, Therese Anne Fowler, did a multitude of research into the lives of both Zelda and […]

Pondering from a moon child

You won’t see this post until the sun is already up, but it’s dark as I write. I have always been in love with the moon. Even now it is my friend when sleep seems like a dream far away. Perhaps it is the silence. Perhaps it is the seduction of being all alone, and […]

Have you read?… The Golden Compass (#1)

I just decided to make this a series. Literally, as I was typing the title I thought, “now this would make a good, weekly post”. Now that I’m thinking on it further I’m not sure that I can do a book review a week. I can, but I might drive myself mad doing so, so maybe […]

When things don’t quite work out…

I guess that q&a wasn’t what people wanted, huh? That’s ok. I’ll just try to work on something else for next week. I might do a book review. I’ve read several that I think other people might be interested in…. I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Finally some quiet.

It’s reached a point in our moving/unpacking/getting our life reorganized that I finally have found the time to get back to my normal schedule. I managed to get in a few writing sessions while on the road and as we waited for our stuff to arrive, but it finally feels good to actually return to […]

Going off grid…

So, for those of you who read this blog (mostly family. Hi mom. Hi dad.) you will know that hubby and I will be moving soon. A week and half to be precise, so I’m going to hold of on posts until we’re settled in our new abode. We’re hoping for a house with a […]

Journal Submissions, and a five year plan.

I promised that I’d tell you the five year plan, and here it is: I want to get published. In between writing this blog I’ve been submitting my most recent story to different journals, and I’m waiting back for the rejection letters. That may sound pessimistic, but I’d rather be realistic, and the odds aren’t […]

When you figure out your five year plans by being around family.

Sorry this is coming out several hours later than it should. I woke up with a horrible migraine, and it only just recently became manageable. We finally got back from vacation last Friday, and everything seemed to go wrong as soon as we got home. Our washer overflowed on Saturday all over our kitchen and […]
