November Word of the Month

Happy National Novel Writing Month! I’m doing MyNoReMo, or My Novel Rewriting Month. As long as I jump in and keep turning out the words, I think I will be okay. Which made me think of an excellent word for this month. Continue reading “November Word of the Month”

The Swamp of Inspiration

I happened to be swimming alone the other day. Actually, there were other people in the pool, but none of them were my close friends so I kept doing my “laps” and thinking about all kinds of stuff. One lady said something about a woman who kicked her husband out for reasons. My mind jumped into story mode. What if a man found out his wife had kicked him out due to gossip going around town? He goes to work in the morning, and a coworker gives him condolences. Continue reading “The Swamp of Inspiration”

My Writing Day

So many writers in the world have a lot going against them, yet they continue to write and to put out novels that entertain while making us think. I’m never going to write a book that requires deep thought since I don’t live in a war-torn country or suffer from disabilities or work a full-time job or even have small children to care for. I was a coward and gave up writing when my kids were younger. IT seemed the thing to do at the time. Continue reading “My Writing Day”

A Writer’s Prayer

Alert! Your Story is Waiting

Things in my life are almost more than a sane person can handle. Luckily, I haven’t been completely sane for at least 22 years. I’m testifying in a murder trial, I lost the last surviving uncle on my mom’s side of the family, and I can’t get the refrigerator out of my dining room so I can put the dining room table back there and have a living room once again. I was hand feeding baby birds, thinking the court drama would take a day, then had to scramble for a back up when it appeared we’d be tied up for a couple weeks. I’m pretty sure the lawyers would not like to have 5 parakeet chicks begging for food in the courtroom. Continue reading “Alert! Your Story is Waiting”

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”
