Things That Make You Go Hmmm

I was reading an interesting article this morning about the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. Unless you've been living in a remote cave somewhere you've probably heard of the linen cloth that is supposed to be Jesus' burial cloth. What made me go "hmm, that's neat" was the following: Going to Pilate, he asked... Continue Reading →


Sidetracked Much?

If it's not something in my world sidetracking me, it's my own brain! Some work got done today, but not nearly as much as I'd wanted. This means, of course, that I'm stacked up into tomorrow. least it's not as nuts as last week! As for the sidetracking part...I've been thinking a lot lately about... Continue Reading →

Maybe This Week???

Last week was a crazy week...lots of client work (yeah!) but not enough writing my own stuff (boo!). Ah, the delicate balance. Rather than a ballerina prancing around the stage, however, we're talking Lucille Ball working at the chocolate factory. Messy, messy, messy! Still working on story number two for the year, but will... Continue Reading →


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....

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 →


“Alien” or Simple Childhood Tale?

Slowly starting to get back into the swing of things, but it's tough. Glad we're not homeschooling until next week (smart hubby!) as it's helping me ease back into my regular schedule. I've been working on my short story all week, however tonight I wandered into journal mode, pondering the question of why my stories... 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 →


The Writing Continues…

Still plugging away, albeit much slower than I like, on my story; working title In His Name. So far I'd say that it's a "thriller". I put the word "thriller" into quotes because I'm not entirely sure it fits that category. I'm also leaning towards "horror", which, thanks to Mike Duran's awesome treatise Christian Horror: On...
