Literally

SM is all about Top ‘??’ lists. I’m terrible at narrowing anything down and all of these lists are the broadest realities you could ever be asked. What’s your favorite word? Ice cream? Golden Girls? (BTW, that last one is Rose. Maybe Blanche. I dunno Sophia.) The only way I could answer any of theseContinue reading “Literally”

It’s a Process

I have some ideas for blog posts after I finish my rewrite. This story has taken on a life of its own. The more I think about it the more I realize if I hadn’t invested money in it I would have written it off as one of my lesser attempts and moved on toContinue reading “It’s a Process”

Yankee Doodle Dandy

I know it’s not popular to be patriotic. I know this country is steeped in centuries of ignorant, violent, dangerous outlooks and behavior. So this isn’t gong to be an ‘I know this but…’ set up. It is what it is and I hope we are on a path to fundamental change. Our country isContinue reading “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

ICQ over DSL later?

Our cabin is struggling this year with connectivity.  It happens, mountain problems.  If we were here for a week no biggie but when you’ve moved operations of your tech company for a few months it’s a big deal that your download rate is .07 and upload .06.  Don’t even ask about sending a text orContinue reading “ICQ over DSL later?”

Skin Deep

Let’s stir the controversy pot today. I’m caramel colored, so to speak.  Or café au lait to embrace my NOLA roots. I’ve never had a problem with this description of my coloring or other food related metaphors. Not long ago, I was made aware that this type of description is frowned upon and considered racistContinue reading “Skin Deep”

Napoleon Complex

You’ve heard a decent bit about my one little rescue diva hot mess.  But I have another rescue dog.  This one is not pure bred like the girl though they told us he was. It doesn’t matter that’s not why we get dogs. He also fits right in with our crazy. We are all convincedContinue reading “Napoleon Complex”

Poppolio-M

A few years ago I took a hike with my youngest. My oldest was at sleepaway camp and my SO was working. So I grabbed my little gamer and said enough screens let’s go for a long walk and we did. We got a bit lost and went a smidgen longer than I intended butContinue reading “Poppolio-M”

Summer Reading

I’m a reader. Duh, right? I don’t read one kind of genre. I read everything from the literary hard to read, harder to understand, to the caveman laugh out loud where did you find this man romance novels and everything in between. I like it all. And if you want to know something I likeContinue reading “Summer Reading”

Looking Back

I’m dialing it in again again for creative writing Saturday and pulling an excerpt from Falling Slowly. This was one of my for older young adults, YA romances. It was the first book where I switched POV 1/2 through. For some reason the male voice kept having things to say so at a pivotal pointContinue reading “Looking Back”
