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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Take the summer writing challenge!

| June 13, 2014

I’m super-excited about this! I just learned that my friend, mentor and writing instructor, Holly Lisle, is hosting a summer writing challenge. She did this last year with her Flash Fiction class and Mugging the Muse. This year, you’ll have a choice of 6 different workshops to play in. Pick one, or pick several, and […]

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 […]

Out of the chrysalis…

| September 24, 2013

photo: Johan J.Ingles-Le Nobel Vacation is a good thing. I feel refreshed and renewed (now that I’ve recovered from vacation, anyway). I had time to relax and catch-up with family and friends that I don’t see nearly enough. And I got enough distance from my day-to-day that I gained some new perspective. This is a […]

Thundercats are go!

| July 24, 2013

It’s alive! We have liftoff! Soup’s on! Time to rock-n-roll! Whatever euphemism you care to use, they all mean the same thing. The HTTS Student Anthology, The Adventure of Creation, is now available for sale! You can find it on either as a paperback or as a Kindle ebook. Buy early and buy often! […]
