I lied.

Not intentionally. I just changed my mind. A couple of weeks ago, I told you about my plan to write Mia’s memoirs as a part of NaNoWriMo. My grandmother and I worked on them for years, and she died before I was able to finish interviewing her. But I have stories and interviews and other…

Such a rebel …

Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her, wish I could talk to her, want to see her. I miss my grandmother, Mia, like crazy, since she passed away in June. If there was anything she taught me, it was to make my own way in this crazy life. That rules are…

Something you hope to do in your life

Note: I’m writing the 30 Days of Truth topics, not necessarily in the next 30 days, but in at some point, eventually, I will get all 30 days done. Write with me! On your blog if you have one, in the comments here if you don’t or if you don’t want to put it on…

Life is a gift. Use it or lose it …

So, I’m a little late on the the whole “look back/look ahead” post that comes at the end of the year, but I was too busy celebrating the holidays to take the time to sit down and think about it! So, better late than never, right? Last year I wrote about some thoughts on 2008,…

The shortest blog post I’ve ever written (but there’s a good reason!)

National Novel Writing Month update: 34,885 words. I have less than 16,000 to write by Monday, and I am determined to “win” this year. For the record, I am happy with how the book is going, too – it may even be better than last year’s book! Ok, back to writing my novel …

I’m writing a book and I have no idea what it’s about

Well, that’s only sort of true. I am writing a book, for National Novel Writing Month, and this will be my second time doing this. Last year, I had it all figured out – plot outlines, character sketches, a title and even a book cover design, all before NanoWriMo started in November. This month, I…

This weather makes me want to write …

Ah, autumn. It’s that time of year again. The days get shorter, the leaves get colorful. There’s a bite in the air and the sun gets a little kinder. It’s bittersweet, welcoming the end of summer but knowing the cold is coming. It’s October, which means I better start narrowing down my story line for…

Update on my novel (no, I haven’t forgotten about it)

I say I haven’t forgotten about my book that I have written, but I have regrettably put it on the back burner this year – but it’s not to stay there for long! My intent was to go through an edit on screen, and add scenes as needed, and then make a proof copy and…

I could so do porn right now

So Amy and Jeff both asked me if I was going to blog about my bikini wax and I won’t other than to say Parvin’s Spa on East Boulevard is, hands down, the best place I’ve ever been for waxing and I will probably never go anywhere else. In describing it to Amy, I told…
