    Trying to find a balance between work, school, and publishing

    Publishing World is always changing. Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with all the changes whether it is technical or business wise with publishing houses closing. I’ve been away from writing and publishing for too long. My goal for the rest of the year and the coming year is to reestablish myself as a writer. It is time to say goodbye to writer’s block excuses and begin filling paper after paper with lists of this and that to give me jarring ideas for the stories that I have in progress. I need to clean up my to be finished pile and start publishing new stuff.   Is this a…

    I Ask Myself A Thousand Times Why I Write

    I will continue to ask myself over and over why I write and the list continues to grow. Communication: Writing is a form of communicating with those not met or seen every day. A friend, a sibling, former co-worker, even someone never met may find a shared experience to be inspirational, helpful or educational. Sharing: Experiences are wonderful to share. By sharing the experience the how, why and what will offer insight to what to possibilities for others. Caring: Everyone needs something. Caring is part of sharing insights of experiences of how to do something, why to do it, and what the reason was for the experience. Business: Writers write,…

    Dear Writer’s Block – ROW80

    Dear Writer’s Block, It’s not you, it’s me. I know we’ve been together for over a year, but it is time for us to part ways. So, I will no longer be sitting with you and talking to you. It is over, and time for us to move on. I’ve stories to write and worlds to build. I want to put characters in desperate situations and see how they get out of them. I want to help them find love, romance, and to finally find happiness. For the past year, you haven’t made me happy. You’ve only made me procrastinate by playing online games on Facebook. Isn’t that what social…

    Do Da Writing Sprint #amwriting #ROW80

     image provided by Microsoft Office Puppy Power! I remember Scrappy Do from Scooby Do. Scrappy was fearless and full of energy. That’s the way our pup Keelaa appears to be. She runs around like a miniature greyhound, doing figure eights around the older dog Julie. Meanwhile, Julie barks encouragement, sound as though she is saying faster, faster, faster… I’m not sure what she is in training for. Maybe counter-attacking the family cats who keep trying to terrorize her by pouncing on her from dark corners. I never realized, cats can be so mean when they want to be. Me, I haven’t actually run sprints since High School. I’m not sure…

    Cats of Terror

    I don’t know why dogs and cats can’t get along. Our older pup, Julie, was raised with two cats that she got along with very well. They used to play together all the time. One of the cats used to put his whole head in Julie’s mouth and appear to count her teeth with no fear. After seeing how she had gotten along with those two cats, it is hard to admit that dogs and cats don’t always get along. Granted those two cats that Julie had friended were kittens when she was only 6 months old may have something to do with it. Our new puppy is having a…
