Recently I posted on Facebook about characters who have a mind of their own… Part of this question came from the fact that my mother and my son have a very sharp (sometimes frighteningly so) wit and I do not. When I am writing a scene with snappy repartee or clever comments, those are often … More When your characters take over the story

Things I have learned in the last two days. First: I am SOOO glad I finished my Novel for NaNoWriMo before Thanksgiving! Second: If you are not finished with your NaNoNovel before Thanksgiving, you will most likely have to chose between writing and shopping. It is incredibly hard to do both.

Who else misses the classics?
I am taking a page out of a friend’s book. She wrote a post a day or so ago about how discouraged she had become over her word count in NaNoWriMo. LINK I have also found myself becoming discouraged about my word count and I realized something this morning (after she pointed it out to … More Happy Sunday!
Yesterday I was ranting about a lack of Christmas spirit. Today I’m here with a great reminder of the “TRUE” meaning of Christmas. Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone, who knows what Christmas is all about?! Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please? And there were in the … More The “true” meaning of Christmas.
Well, I guess we won’t be seeing a return of the app that gave us “Christmas magic” from our fun red Starbucks cups.
