This Author’s Six Month Checkup

January 1 was (roughly) six months ago. I hate making resolutions, but I had a lot of plans for this year. Isn't it funny how things change? My plans have morphed (in some cases, considerably), and I thought I'd tell you how it's all shaping up. Am I celebrating? Read on to find out. If... Continue Reading →

Well, Independence Day (for the US) has come and gone. It got me thinking a lot about the freedoms so many of us take for granted, which ultimately led me to this quote. I try very hard not to ignore or abuse such a poignant gift as freedom. I'm sure I could do better at... Continue Reading →

Happy Friday, folks! It was a busy week here. What else is new, right? I thought I'd have time to write a second post this week, but then it all hit the fan. Hoping to do so next week. Until then, here's the quote of the week: I chose this one because this week, I... Continue Reading →

Are you sick of me asking where the week went? I am. But I still can't believe how fast the days are passing. (I'd say I sound like an old lady, but my kids would agree too quickly. And enthusiastically.) Anyway, this week's post spoke to me because I spent a good chunk of my... Continue Reading →

Ciao, everybody! I hope you had a great week. Mine, as always, was a busy one. In honor of the Royal Wedding, I chose a quote from Meghan Markle. Even though we're in different industries (I'm a writer and she's an actress --- well, probably not even that anymore), the quote applies. For that matter,... Continue Reading →

As promised, I'm back to the regular post this week. And here's my quote for you, via Neil Gaiman. Ah, Neil Gaiman. He knows his stuff. I had good days and bad this week. All told, though, I can't complain. I've recently downloaded Dragon, the dictation software, and if I can figure out all the... Continue Reading →
