January Writing Goals

I’ve been working on my writing calendar goals and figured it easier to go month by month, so this is my attempt at doing so. Among writing new words in my soon to be published books I also help admin a group for Fantasy and Sci-Fi authors, put out a newsletter, and work on social media posts all while trying to market my work. … Read More January Writing Goals

No Resolutions Over Here

Every New’s Year Eve we see so many of our friends and family set New Years Resolutions only to see two weeks or a month in they have failed at them, this is ONE of the many reasons I don’t set them. First, if I’m going to set a goal for myself why wait till the end of one year and the beginning of another … Read More No Resolutions Over Here

Changes, they are a coming

So, this past week I decided to make some huge changes in the way I do things…with my sites. If all goes as planned by New Years I will have my business website linked in with this blog! For me its about simplicity. One place for everything! The blog will still be here and that portion of the site will remain absolutely the same. … Read More Changes, they are a coming

A Final Farewell

Yesterday, an organization I’ve been involved with for five years closed it doors along with the publishing company that branched out from it – both the Fantasy and Science Fiction Network and Azure Fire Publishing. It has been an adventure and great learning experience working with the authors of the two groups and will forever be remembered. You can see the farewell notice on … Read More A Final Farewell

Expect the Unexpected

Over the last twenty years, I’ve battled with “female” issues and finally on the 29th of October I was able to start the final process of resolving those issues. While a hysterectomy for me was considered elective… I truly feel it was my only opinion. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life on medication if a procedure could take care of … Read More Expect the Unexpected

Writing goals

Last year, not much was written in way of my books so this year… I aimed for change. I had last published in January 2017 until just recently and that was a huge gap. I had an unfinished series, many unfinished works, and just no drive to get any of it done. I dealt with a lot of stress and distractions! Early on in … Read More Writing goals

Endorsement Anger?

So Nike does an ad with Kaepernick and the country seems to have gone insane. People are burning their Nike products (cause what is more sensible than burning things you spent damn good money on, right) … Well, now this Louisiana mayor has decided to ban Nike products from the city recreation facilities. He put out a memo stating, “Under no circumstances will any … Read More Endorsement Anger?

Respect and Responsibility

I’ve rewritten this post a few times now… hard to decide where to start, so I’m going to try this one more time. Every one is different. We each look different, think different, like different things. This is okay. What I find disturbing is that every day I find people disrespecting one another based on our differences, whether that is skin color, religion, political … Read More Respect and Responsibility

Turning 46

I’ve not been big on celebrating my birthday in quite some time, so this year was no different. My husband is on the road for work and the house has been quieter, not that he necessarily is noisy 😉 Anyhow, as time creeps up on us as it does me I had a lot of things on my mind this birthday (June 11). I … Read More Turning 46

When are we done?

A while back I heard a conversation where one parent told another they didn’t need to give their child advice anymore because that child was now an adult. I thought about this for quite sometime and mulled it over and over in my head. Here are my thoughts: The only time we are done doing anything for our children is (1) they no longer … Read More When are we done?

What is in a name?

A name is given to everything. Trees, Insects, Things, People. Literally everything. We name our children, pets, and even our automobiles. So when the prompt for week 6 in #52Ancestors came up as Favorite Name, I was stuck. Over the last few days, I have diligently to update my ancestry records online from documents I received after my mother’s death in 2004. I have … Read More What is in a name?

An invitation to dinner

An invitation to dinner is week fours writing prompt from #52Ancestors! To imagine having any one of my ancestors, family members known or unknown to dinner is just exciting. But how does one narrow down that invitation to just one when your ancestors date back past the 1400s. That’s a lot people to choose from. Would I want the person I was closest to? … Read More An invitation to dinner
