Coming to Terms

May 14, 2013


I haven’t written, much less submitted and had published, a new book in months…okay, years. I’ve made all kinds of excuses: my husband died….lost our home and had to move…grandmother died…lost my job…had to move again…went back to school… Yes, they’re true and great excuses, but that is all they are. I know writers struggling […]

Don’t say…

Long and sad weekend

September 12, 2011


Yesterday was ten years since the attacks by terrorists that shook this country to the core. I chose not to post, blog or even get on my computer at all this past weekend. It was a bad one for me because I was feeling very weak. I spent most of the weekend crying. My pain […]

Weekend Update

July 19, 2011


I went grocery shopping last Thursday with my mother. My DIL and 2 children-once-removed joined in the fun. Alyx–the three year old–was getting kind of loud so she and I played this game where we whispered and walked quietly to avoid being found by the motorcycle monster. As I walked down the frozen section I […]
