(writing/nano/personal) Not dead (although sometimes I wonder…)

Short update- work has been long, so has life and I hate the shorter days.  However, as of today, I’m putting all my whining behind me and getting back to what I love: writing. It’s been shoved aside too much lately.  I’m working on the new Advent story, and having things percolate for then next …

(writing) Publish day!

As soon as I have the files, I will post them! Just waiting for the news that it’s up!

(writing/pendragon) What’s Past is not Always Past

This is a story I wrote for Every Photo Tells – it was their episode 115, and you can listen to it here.  If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it is a podcast where they post a photo every month, and invite folks to write short stories around it.  Then Katharina and Mick read …

Because I can mix metaphors with the best!  And seriously, it’s how I’m feeling right now.   Why?   Because I had PLANS for October, dear friends.  PLANS in all capitals.  And real life looked at my plans, patted me on the head, and said, “You’re adorable, did you know that?”   I have a …

(personal) Frost on the pumpkins

33 degrees F this morning in NH, which is not really motivating when you are supposed to get out of bed.  Especially since we haven’t turned the heat on yet.  Man, I love crisp fall apples, but cold fall mornings?  Not so much.   But this change of seasons reminds me that change is always …

(personal/writing) Not really dead yet

Just quiet.  I’ve been dealing with life, and now I’m sick.  *sigh*  Did I mention that my immune system sucks?  Seriously.  Someone coughs down the street and I get sick.  So when I don’t take care of myself because of other things, I get run down really quickly. And then I get sick. So life …

(book review) The Street, by Paul E. Cooley

  I promised some book reviews, so here’s the first!  This is an amazing book.  It is a horrifying, twisted, sick, wonderful book.  I really really really enjoyed this.   The Street, by Paul E. Cooley, (available here with his other amazing books) explores what happens to Sesame Street, the Muppet Show and Jim Henson’s …
