Life moves too fast!

Wow, it has been a long time since I've been able to sit down at my computer! Between taking care of the kids, the house, the yard, the dog, and making life's 'hard choices' I'm exhaused!! But now that the choices are made its time to get back to work on the next book. I have the plot and the first few chapters so should be on a roll soon. I love writing but sometimes wish the money was better. Would be great to be able to stay home and just write all day, not have to think about the bills. But that just isn't the way of the world, my daughter has told me that it's a good thing I go to work because otherwise who would I base my characters on? I believe she has a point. Well, the coffee is done, time to make the grits and then get some work done. Want to write at least 2 chapters today before I go to work tonight!!

Have a blessed day!!

Characters not following orders.

I've been working on my next book for a couple of weeks and I have the plot completely worked out knowing where it should end is sort of comforting on those days when I am staring at a blank page. I try to let the character's personalities take over and lead the story with me just providing a guiding hand, but this time they have taken over totally, apparently I am simply the transcriber for this story. Oh well, I still get to put my name on the cover!!

First Book Sold

Yesterday my first book was published on and today the first copy sold! Thanks to smashwords for helping me go from writer to author! Other than actually writing the book; the whole process was so easy! If you have something you want to share with the world go to their website and check it out! You can check out my book at

That is one thing off my bucket list (which I didn't have til the movie came out) and only a few hundred more to go, but hey it's a step in the WRITE direction!!

God Bless

First comments.

Kids are sleeping, the dog is laying at my feet, and the coffee is nice and hot! Looks to be a perfect day! When I walked the Bear, the dog, this morning I could smell the cherry blossoms from the tree in my neighbor's yard. It has been so hot here lately that the breeze was amazing, even though it wasn't all that cool. Now the kids are waking up, time for Scooby Doo and scrambled eggs. Have a blessed day!
