This is "about me." Apparently people want to know a little about me, besides the thoughts I put on my "About" page. When I was about ten years old I received a diary. I didn't put many entries in it, but it was where my writing habit began. Around the age of twelve I began… Continue reading My writing journey
I just had to share that I started editing my novel yesterday and it went well. I rounded out a scene. I did some research. I read up on plot versus character and I mapped out my plot on a large sheet of sketching paper. Mapping out my plot was very revealing. I saw that a… Continue reading Editing – it’s happening
Something needs to change around here. I was away on holidays for two weeks. When I returned, we moved so I spent that week finding places for things. The next week I started my website and it took a lot of time to figure out what I was doing. This is week five since I… Continue reading Does my life look the way I want it to look?
I am sitting with my laptop at the dining table while my husband queries me from across the room about why I haven't been editing my novel. Nearly a month has gone by since I asked for six months.

When someone asked him why, he responded, "The pain passes, but the beauty remains." Writing requires discipline, persistence, all… Continue reading The pain passes but the beauty remains

But I have this tendency to bend, to be flexible, to allow… Continue reading Boundaries? What’s that?
This blog is about writing, in case you didn't notice. I mean, what could give you a clue? Dewdrops on green leaves, maybe? This is my main site, and I'm so proud of getting my own name as the domain name. Well, pride isn't really a factor, because it was merely a matter of availability,… Continue reading This blog is about writing
I'm trying to put widgets on my sites, but the ones I've imported are frozen. It happened when I tried to link to Facebook. They won't open and they won't move. I feel rather helpless, but maybe this will eventually sort itself out. I closed everything down and now I'll see if it makes a… Continue reading A few more snags
I just deleted the Mr. WordPress "comment" and now this is beginning to look like a for real web page. I'll warn you, though, it is still under construction. Yesterday I did a lot of work here. When my husband came home I was still in my housecoat. Not true. It was his housecoat. He thought I… Continue reading Moving along…
