I am Thankful! Really! I saw this earlier on Facebook and it made me feel more than a little petty. I’ve been doing more than my fair share of complaining lately so here’s my Thankful list! I’m thankful for my family! Too many people will spend the holidays all alone. I’m thankful for being stuck … More I am thankful for…
Who remembers those old Looney Tunes cartoons? This afternoon, my kids discovered a collection of Looney Tunes on DVD I bought years ago. At the time, they had no interest in them but for some reason, this afternoon, they did. They probably watched every single one of them at least twice and I haven’t heard … More Reminded of my youth. Who else misses the classics?
I have a theory. I think the weekends are so much harder for some of us because of how families typically structure their weeks. For most people who work through the week, they struggle to get their minimum word count each night and a lot of nights, they don’t make it. They’re tired and stressed … More Why are weekends so hard?
What is the dilemma you ask. The dilemma is this: Do you follow where you characters lead or are you determined to keep the story on the course you’ve already determined for it?

They are here to join … More NaNoPersonas – Which one are you?
What is it about the weekend? You would think the weekend would be a great time to get all caught up and maybe even a little ahead on your writing… Right? Wrong! I thought so too. In fact, I had so much success in the first weekend of November that I was certain these last … More NaNoWriMo – playing catch up again.
In case you haven’t noticed, my blog posts this month have been all over the place. What’s that? You didn’t notice? Oh well… they have been. I’m not someone who is used to writing a blog post every single day and get my word count for NaNoWriMo and do everything else I have to do … More Go with the flow…
