Drunk Peaches

I have mentioned in the past–more than once–that I am not a cook. It’s not that I can’t cook, I don’t like planning to cook, preparing to cook, cooking, and cleaning up after cooking. Except on special occasions like when I have help, inspiration,… Continue Reading “Drunk Peaches”

Thrilled but humbled

A couple of weeks ago, I did this thing–I entered a local writer’s group short story contest. Each month the Granbury Writers’ Bloc posts a challenge to write a story of less than 1500 words for a given prompt. August happened to be an… Continue Reading “Thrilled but humbled”

Firsts

A while back, a friend asked about first concerts. You know the type of question: What was your 1st car (’73 government surplus AMC Ambassador station wagon–top that for ugly!), What was your 1st pet? (a Boston terrier–Lady Noble Blue (edit-the Mimi corrects me.… Continue Reading “Firsts”

My Boy

As parents, we met December 2004, with the usual question: “What do you think Santa will bring you for Christmas?” I don’t know what we were thinking, but mi espouso and I were a little shocked when the Myrtles (aged 8 and 6 at… Continue Reading “My Boy”

I’m Blue.

For the past three years, I have looked forward to an event created by and for writers. Writers in the Field (WITF) is an opportunity for writers to get inside the head of experts in all manner of disciplines without kidnapping, torture, and self-incrimination.… Continue Reading “I’m Blue.”

What Next?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really enjoy short stories. I like to have a little more meat–which is also why I don’t like ribs or wings. There’s too much work to get so little to chew on. Last time, I mentioned… Continue Reading “What Next?”

Something New…What Now?

Hello, all. It’s been a while. A year to be exact. Sorry about that. It’s hard to relate what I’m doing when I truly don’t have a clue. It’s been a productive year, methinks. I finished the sequel to Healer and am in the process… Continue Reading “Something New…What Now?”

A Writer’s Life

I must say that writing is exhausting work. My brain doesn’t shut down except when it must. Personality tests say its due to being an INFP. If I had ever undergone psychological testing, I might have been diagnosed with some version of attention deficit… Continue Reading “A Writer’s Life”

Blinking Cursor

We as humans tend to ask useless questions. Probably the most common one is “How are you?” The recipient’s knee-jerk response is usually a generic “I’m fine.” This answer might or might not be followed with the same question asked back, and we repeat… Continue Reading “Blinking Cursor”

Friends Rock

I did something today I haven’t done in my adult life: went shopping with friends. And they had no idea what a big deal that was. Those who know me well (the Mimi, mi espouso, the Myrtles) know that shopping is torture for all… Continue Reading “Friends Rock”
