I am utterly useless at stringing words together into a coherent sentence today.
Case in point: I just misspelled the word sentence three times (scentence, scendence, scentendence). 🙃
Clearly I need to re-think my blog name. Because I most certainly am not a #writer of #words. At least not good words. 😉Continue reading “Book blurbs”
I have been thinking about book reviews and their importance, significance and relevance, for both readers and authors. I have also been working on designing a book cover which is why I’m going to ramble about these topics today.Continue reading “Book reviews, and designing (e)book covers”
Those of you who have read here a while know that I’m a little bit…different.
Let’s go with that. 🙃
Here is something about me though that most of you probably will not dispute: I am nothing if not creative.
As I continue to write my stories, and edit my stories, and proofread my stories, and finish my stories, and begin new stories, I realized something.
I need some personal experience to supplement some of my creativity. And this is the reason why I started a bit of an unusual experiment a couple of weeks ago.
Really unusual.Continue reading “Clandestine honesty”
For two days I’ve been doing stuff. All sorts of stuff. None of it involved writing.
I’m feeling out of sorts.Continue reading “About pets, not writing and a strange looking food item”
I came across this on social media this morning and I have to say it made me happy!! Who had ever heard of strawberry finches? Not me!Continue reading “Random notes and strawberry finches”

Disclaimer: I’m going to describe a family situation that irritated me. I’m only doing this because Toronto’s strict lockdown measures are getting us all beyond frustrated, plus the weather has turned much colder making outdoor activities a little less enjoyable, meaning we spend even more time inside together. I’m just saying, we’re all feeling the strain of being together so much in this small house for so long (10 months and counting). Read with a grain of salt. Don’t pity me, I’m fine. And be nice with your comments. 😉
If you’ve read here a while then you know I like to write fiction. Some of you know I write erotic/romantic fiction. Lately, I’ve been on a roll with a particular story that is now into Chapter 10, and I’m not done.
I write at the dining room table facing the open concept kitchen in front of me. The living room is to the left of me.
The family is not here for the most part – the husband teachers his college students in his basement office, the kids are plugged in to their virtual classrooms in their basement rooms.
I take those moments when they’re schooling to focus and write. All good so far, right?Continue reading “Challenges during stay-at-home lockdown”
Today I opened a chat box with a WordPress Happiness Engineer and asked a question about polls.
Some of you have used polls, or surveys, in your blog posts at times. So have I.Continue reading “Polls do not appear in WordPress reader”
Some of my friends challenge my thinking. Sometimes, this is a good thing (for me). Sometimes, I reject their view or opinion and carry on doing my own thing.
But every so often, someone will say something that has me hold on to their thought, their opinion, their perspective for a lengthy period of time.
This morning, I got an email from a friend who suggested that perhaps I am spreading myself too thin with all the writing projects I have on the go.
And I have been stumbling on this comment all day.Continue reading “Brain dump on writing and friendship”
