Writer’s Digest Review
Last spring I entered my first (and only-finished-so-far-personal-labor-of-love) book in the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards for 2016. Alas, I did not win. Not that I expected to, but I thought it would be worth a shot, you know – to take advantage of the opportunities that arise, eh? The truth is, even with littleContinue reading “Writer’s Digest Review”
The Dutiful Wife
He brings home the news he’s deploying again, You hold it together; turn away, nod your head. He’s seen others hurt; you’re his best friend then- the one he turns to, when another is dead.

I went on vacation to Florida in June. We rented a house with some of myContinue reading “Summer News”
A Writer’s Weekend
I mentioned in an earlier blog post that for Mother’s Day my husband booked me into a local hotel for two days of unadulterated writing bliss. I was up in arms about what to pack for clothes and food, but I just packed as if I was going on a normal trip. Friday night HubbaContinue reading “A Writer’s Weekend”
Thoughts Run Amok
Do you ever have one of those days where you can’t get your thoughts under control? Today mine have just been running around like bees who’ve lost their queen.

OCD and other things.
I’ve been struggling over the past couple of months. I’m not going to get into the details here, but I feel like evil and temptations have been removing my peace. I need to regain my peace, man! And I think I’m on the road to peaceful recovery. Balance. That is the thing that gets outContinue reading “OCD and other things.”
