A writer should always be prepared to answer the question: Who is your audience? Personally they resemble the three kindred spirits below who kindly allowed me to snap their photo at the Rolling Stone concert in DC for my own selfish means. I mean blog!

I can't take my BFF Sheila anywhere because she can't resist the urge to touch things. Like priceless artwork in museums. Or, apparently, prickly pears. Now according to google; the cure for prickly pear picking-related wounds requires two things; both of which we did not have:  (1.)  Elmer&...

I fell in love with Mick Jagger 43 years ago and we could have had a fairy tale romance, but a few problems stood in our way. The insurmountable one was AGE!

June 8, 2017

I'm lucky. I've had the same BFF since 1971! We don't live close to each other, which kinda sucks, but we make up for it with looooonnnnggg phone calls and annual visits and adventures.

Yes, it is National Beverage Day and I'm more than a Fan - I'm an ADDICT!  

My beverage of choice is a Starbucks Iced Grande Toffee Nut Latte -- EVERY MORNING. And my family knows that it is not wise to try to converse with me until I've had mine. (Because I am NOT a morning person it seems...

Some writers have to rent a getaway in the woods so they can spend a little time writing in a quiet, peaceful setting. Not me.  I live in a bucolic setting that could be regarded a writer's paradise. My home is situated in an area called The Rural Crescent and I am surrounded by acres of trees and l...

Yesterday was 'The Bard's' birthday, which is commemorated here in the US of A by participation in the national Talk Like Shakespeare Day.  I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and I was itching to practice my bard-speak, but my family was out of town and I had no one to talk to except my dog and cat and th...

Carrie Fisher: She was, is, and forever will be, the original butt-kicking Buns of Steel and her pen was a mighty Force!

Apologies Everyone!

My dog has been blogging again.

(And, apparently, also penciling things in on ballots.)

But follow his example and VOTE!

September 3, 2016

As you now know, I have been working on a book and attending writer's conferences and learning all manner of things in regards to getting my book published.  Agents and editors always ask for my book's genre, so in an effort to be thorough and precise in identifying my book's categorical DNA, I obta...

Yes, I did! 

I read my whole book all the way through in ONE sitting.

(And if I can do it -- YOU can do it.  Especially once it is edited.)

I locked myself in a hotel room in Cleveland with my manuscript,

a Starbucks latte, and a power bar for lunch.

Then  I read.

And read.

And read.

I made notes and notes...

December 17, 2015

This year I had an epiphany regarding the  "Perfect Christmas Gift". It came about while I was online shopping for my BFF and co-Some Girl, Sheila (which, of course, led me to the Rolling Stones' website).

I was delighted to find that they were selling miniatures of the Stones modeling thei...

I like to write about funny things, but this post is not-so-funny.

Recently I had a request from the Gainesville Times to write an editorial piece regarding a local threat to our area.  Dominion Power is planning to run 100 foot high electrical towers & power lines through local properties that inclu...

I live in a weird house with a tower and a gargoyle. Here are some things I learned when painting a "Wonderland" checkerboard floor that could save your life!
