NaNoWriMo…Does it Strike Fear or Excitement…or Both?

  Can you believe that NaNoWriMo was created nearly 20 years ago? Wow! I've been waffling back and forth between whether or not I should participate.

Short story Number One

Yeah! Had a bit of an inspiration this weekend, wrote a flash fiction short story, and even submitted it to an online flash fiction paying market. The title is What's a Housewife to Do and is less than 800 words long, so obviously a flash fiction. Week two short story is now in progress - the plan... Continue Reading →

Still Humming Along…

Very little - maybe a sentence or two - on the story tonight. Oy...and I promised myself I'd make every effort to write one per week! Then, on top of that, I've got two client blogs to write tomorrow, plus 9 more to wrap up next week. Pressure much??? Arghhh!!! Ah well, off to bed... Continue Reading →
