    If We were having Coffee – I would tell you my goings on

    Goings On- No, I did not work on any of my wips this week. I still did do some writing, with my weekly assignment for class. This term is Organizational Behavior and Fundamentals of Taxation. I never knew that doing taxes could be so interesting. I am already compiling a ton of deductions that I may be able to take in the coming year. Since I was not working on any of my manuscripts, what have I been doing? InDesign – I have played around some more with the Adobe software, InDesign. The more I use it and poke around with it, the more I like it. I can see…

    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…

    If we were having Coffee, I’d tell you…I hit a lifetime milestone

    Let’s Chat over a cup of Coffee It’s been a while since we last met which was way back in November. Since then I have read a couple of books. One book opened a door of learning to appreciate my coworkers and the other about the benefits of Stress. Usually, I prefer to read fiction like that of fantasy, mystery, sci-fiction, or romance but I’ve found these books on business informative.   Christmas and the Holidays have passed. Phew! They flew by without incident, and everyone was happy with the gifts they got. I did stay up to watch the ball drop.   Keelaa, our Jackshund, is getting a new…

    Have Americans Gone too far with Christmas Lights? #Christmaslightwars

    I used to look forward to driving home from Grandma’s House at Christmas time when I was a child, to be able to see all the pretty Christmas decorations and lights on our way back home. I remember oohing and gaping every time we passed another decorated house. Nowadays, the homes are a hit or miss. They are either undecorated because no one can afford the light bill or they are over decorated and look gaudy awful and too bright for the eyes to behold. For instance, in the article, Christmas Lights ‘on Steroids’ Bring Parking Headaches to Dyker Heights, parking is limited even more because of the draw the…

    Farfetched Story Sounds Familiar

      Someone has been reading my short stories or so it appears. An article was posted in the Facebook news feeds and I had to go and check it out. The story does sound a bit farfetched but hey, I suggested this in my short story that I wrote years ago, Bed Bug Ridden.[1] Apparently, some woman decided to burn down her house because of a bad infestation of bed bugs. I wrote Bed Bug Ridden back around 2010 as a short story and you can read it in my Time Pieces Collection which has stories that are funny, simple, short and sweet with a touch of some suspense. There…
