Writers Need Cups with Messages

Now, more than ever before, I need my coffee to start my day. Living in a month of Sundays time, defining my days is much more important then ever. I label all my Facebook posts by the day of the week when they will appear. I need coffee so I can wake up enough and read the days on my posts. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

How I Arrived at Sparkyville

I currently post a humor blog called Welcome to Fabulous Sparkyville. Or WTF Sparkyville. I started this blog to fill a gaping hole in my universe. And while it might not have a huge following or make any money for me, I don’t plan to stop doing it any time soon. There’s a bit of history connected with the blog that keeps me in touch with an online family. Let me tell you all about it. Continue reading “How I Arrived at Sparkyville”
