Whaddaya Mean I’m Not Superwoman?

It’s painful to admit that I think I’ve reached the end of my multitasking capabilities. Everyone’s lives are busy and we all juggle overflowing plates–but to those who can be mom/dad, work full time, keep house, be rushed through back-to-back edits while battling a nasty head cold bent on destroying our planet and still findContinue reading “Whaddaya Mean I’m Not Superwoman?”


That’s how I feel.  I used to pride myself on being more of a multitasker, but lately I can only seem to stay focused on one thing at a time – and that has obviously not been my blog!  It’s a good thing I wasn’t trying to run this thing for a living!  I seriouslyContinue reading “Single-Minded”

Still Here!

I haven’t dropped off the face of the planet, honest.  I’ve actually been writing! Yay! I’m just horrible about splitting my focus, but I’ll try to get back into the swing of blogging more often soon. The kids and I spent our weekend decorating for the holidays and catching up on some movies, so withoutContinue reading “Still Here!”

Writing Controversy

Today’s NaBloPoMo Prompt asks: What is the most controversial thing you’ve ever written on your blog?  For the most part, I try my hardest to avoid controversial subjects, because this is my professional blog, not a personal one.  I believe I may have even written that exact sentence in a previous post.  However, I’m notContinue reading “Writing Controversy”

Lost Signal

Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt feels like a recurring theme for me lately, so I’ve decided to break the questions apart in order to inspect them each as personally and honestly as I can: Have you ever had extended writers’ block? What writer hasn’t?  Okay, I know that’s not making it personal.  So, the answer is yes. Continue reading “Lost Signal”

Happy Anniversary!

Apparently, today is my and WordPress’s 1 year anniversary.  I’m a horrible blogger.  I didn’t get WP anything!  Not even a card.  Would Hallmark cover this kind of relationship, I wonder?  I mean, it seems like any other kind of relationship.  It takes time, patience, dedication and loyalty to successfully navigate the ins and outs,Continue reading “Happy Anniversary!”

The Downside of Blogging

Recently, I’ve been looking around at magazines to possibly submit my poems and/or chapter series.  Only, I’m learning that I can’t.  Admittedly, I’ve kept myself in the dark, by not researching enough when it comes to the ever-changing rules of publishing – And I guess I failed to recognize that anything I post on myContinue reading “The Downside of Blogging”

A Rosey Ray of Sunshine

I logged in this morning to find that Rose from RoseRedStories had nominated me for the Sunshine Award!  Now, that’s a splendid way to enjoy your first cup of coffee in the morning, I say!  Thank you so much for your nomination, Rose and for your continued encouragement and kind words for my posts, IContinue reading “A Rosey Ray of Sunshine”

Loving the Liebster

I have just received notice that the wonderful Alienora (www.alienorajt.wordpress.com) has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award.  Something about my writing managed to snag her attention awhile back and she has been a source of regular encouragement and inspiration ever since.  Some may have even caught my post thanking Alienora for her previous, generousContinue reading “Loving the Liebster”
