The Sword of Damocles?

Although I'm not using the expression as the original meaning intended, in our modern vernacular, it seems to fit. Sometimes it feels like I've been placed under the "Sword of Damocles" - or rather, that I've placed myself there, by pushing myself to write every day. But what nonsense is this? I love to write....

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 →

The Year of the Short Story

It's a good thing that the online clutter I have is seen only by me because visitors to my electronic world would take one look, then quickly turn around and leave! And I'm certain I would hear faint whispers of "hoarder" as they quickly pass from view... Yes, I admit it...I collect information. Lots of... Continue Reading →


Welcome to the Refrigerator!!

Update and plans for 2018

How time, she flys, eh? This blog is a year old today; I know because my domain fee was just paid, lol! What have I been doing for the past month? Client work, actually, which is a blessing, and I've got yet another client starting in January (2 blogs per week), so that's good too.... Continue Reading →


It’s good to be back!

Ah, technology. I know very little about setting up websites, mapping domains, etc. A fact that was probably abundantly clear if you stopped by this blog anytime this past week. I purchased a domain through wordpress for my copywriting business, but unfortunately it got mixed up with this blog when I did it because... Continue Reading →


Well Now Ain’t That Something!

Faith without works is dead, right? So now I've been blessed with the opportunity to show some "works" by believing God for a new writing client or other source of income. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, my writing eggs were all in a single basket (which of course I knew wasn't very smart) and now that... Continue Reading →


Quick Update and Need for Beta Reader

The rumors of my demise have been seriously exaggerated! I've been busy on client work, still trying to get the whole "work-life" balance thing straightened out and working on the fiction. I'm still writing the second in my Jazz and Slade series, Visitor to Blue Lake: A Jazz & Slade Story and by jove this time... Continue Reading →


Honoring Your Creative Voice…and A Short Story

Still working on Visitor to Blue Lake but haven't spent much time on it. Had time last Sunday, but critical voice won. Critical voice: 1, Writer: 0 Then, earlier today I thought of a way I can beat back critical voice...treat my fiction writing like a job. I am a big fan of Dean Wesley Smith and...
