Writing, art, and random acts of creativity…

I’ve been busy

| April 6, 2015

My authorial persona has been a busy bee these last few weeks. First, I was working on a Flash Fiction collection that I intended to put out in March. I didn’t quite make it, but I did stick a story on that blog as a consolation prize. I will try to get that project finished […]

What actually leads to success? Surprising answers.

| March 18, 2015

We all want to “just know” what we’re supposed to do with our lives, for our purpose to be spelled out, but that’s not how life works. The reality is that we have to do the work, but we also have to pay attention to the lessons life is teaching us. Your vocation is not […]

News, updates, and random information

| February 11, 2015

This post is going to be one of those boring ones, I think. Sorry about that. It will have no clever observations. It will have no witty repartee. It is just a plain-old update on this blog, my life, and, ummm… stuff. This Blog I’ve always liked the look of my blog. The theme I’m […]

Time to update?

| January 5, 2015

I’ve enjoyed the theme I’ve used on this site. I like the subdued, rustic, papery look of it. But holy cow, it’s old. This theme hasn’t been supported in something like a gazillion years (give or take). So I think it’s finally time to go in a different direction. Question… should I stay with the […]

Coming into focus

| October 6, 2014

Big surprise here… I haven’t posted lately. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. In all honesty, I really just haven’t thought about it much. Partly – or maybe mostly – that’s because I have a problem with focus. Despite the fact that I’m only a part time employee at my “day job,” I feel […]

News Flash – I have a published Flash Fiction story!

| August 4, 2014

Something is becoming clear to me that I’ve been aware of for a while. I’m actually a pretty good writer, but I’m a terrible blogger! Big surprise. That said, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been selected (in my guise as mild-mannered Elizabeth McCleary) as a winner in an online flash fiction contest. It was […]

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 […]

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 […]
