Not Black, Not White

| April 29, 2015

I try to stay away from political controversy. I really do. But sometimes it’s impossible to not have an opinion. And I guarantee that my opinion isn’t in sync with people on either end of the political spectrum. I am, fundamentally, a moderate. I believe in fairness. I believe in justice. I believe in personal […]

Peeves – the pets you don’t have to feed.

| January 24, 2015

Most of us have little things that people do that we find personally uncomfortable or unreasonable distressing. They’re known as Pet Peeves. Normally they aren’t things that will hurt anyone… it’s more just those oddments that tweak us every time we hear them. A type of laugh that for unexplainable reasons just grates on our […]

Another auld lang syne (2014 into 2015) – My goals for the new year

| January 1, 2015

Happy new year, everybody. Here I am on January 1, 2015, and I’m finally checking in on the goals I declared for myself last year. In short, those goals were: Write 500 words per day 4-5 times per week. Read 50 books. Keep up with my health pursuits. The bad news is, I didn’t meet […]

Checking in on my goals

| June 12, 2014

The year is almost half over. I can hardly believe it! And a busy year it has been, too. But has it been productive? Well, let’s check in on that and see how I’m doing. I’d set myself some goals at the beginning of January. Basically, I wanted to: Write more consistently Read more often […]

What’s wrong with free?

| April 25, 2014

Have you ever joined one of those lists? You know the ones… they send you a regularly scheduled email (usually weekly or daily) telling you where you can get all the free ebooks. #136400195 / gettyimages.com I did. Actually, I think I joined four of them. When I got my first Kindle I was all […]

It’s finally here!!

| April 1, 2014

It’s up, it’s up, it’s up! I know I haven’t been communicating as much as I intended lately, but partly that’s related to the fact that I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on my short story! Or… ummm… Elizabeth has been putting the finishing touches on her story. Whatever. Anyway, Elizabeth McCleary’s story, Watch […]

A New Beginning!

| January 1, 2014

Happy new year, everybody! Another year is in the books, full of yesterdays and memories. Another year is just beginning, full of fresh possibilities. I’m not making any resolutions this year. Resolutions, I think, don’t really work, because resolutions tend to be about what we’re going to do different than we have done before. They […]

Surviving Christmas

| December 23, 2013

Here it is, almost Christmas. And am I prepared? Not at all. Ok, everyone. At least pretend to act surprised. Or not. Whatever. I know I’m not the only one in this boat. Fact is, there are always people who feel overwhelmed at this time of year. There are always people who feel like they’re […]

Advent Calendar News!

| November 27, 2013

I mentioned in my last post that I was participating in an Advent Calendar with some friends. For those who may not know, an Advent Calendar, at it’s most basic, is a means of counting down the days from December 1st until Christmas. It started as a German tradition, but has taken hold almost everyplace […]

Ack!

| November 20, 2013

Between travel associated with my day job, training associated with my self-employment, working to get something published, training for a half-marathon, and assorted other things eating my time, I have not been posting much on this here blog. Perhaps you noticed. *insert eye roll here* Anyway, […]
