Balancing your writing projects

What do you do when you have too many irons in the fire? In my case, it’s too many writing projects while there’s a bun in the oven. I have a deadline of May 20th 2011, the baby’s due date, but this could be weeks earlier or later because babies aren’t as precise about deadlines as

Rich and Poor

I read this great post by Julie Bush and was moved to say something, alot of things, but I’ll try to keep my thoughts from going off on too many tangents. A bit of background: Julie writes with raw emotion. Sometimes I steel myself before reading her stuff, knowing I’m going to feel uncomfortable, but that’s

She’s Alive!

I know my last post was (geez! has it really been that long?) 3 months ago, but I’m BAAACK! Almost in time for Halloween. I’ve peeked at a few blogs during my absence but haven’t commented (bad me), not because I don’t still love all of you, or because I’ve given up on writing (never!),

Just peeking out of my burrow

I only have 863 more blog posts to read! That’s what I get for taking two weeks holiday from the blogosphere–two weeks that turned into four or six. I’ve lost count. While I’ve missed you all and the wonderful anecdotes, inspiring stories of writing success, and commiseration among us poor unpublished sods, it has been hugely

Introverts, Extroverts, and Agents of Chaos

I know what you’re thinking: “agents of KAOS” are the bad guys in that 1960’s TV series, “Get Smart”. At least, that’s what I would have assumed if I were you, but I’m a bit strange. I’m really talking about character. As you might remember from my previous post, I’ve been busy helping with my husband’s art

Facets of Character

My weekly blog post is a bit late for several reasons (such as preparing for my husband’s art exhibition), but the biggest setback was having two days eaten up by a lab retreat at Umina beach. Normally, driving one and a half hours out of the city to stay in a cabin by the beach would

Donate a book!

Donate a book!

Another post already? I know, my head is swimming too, but I just wanted to link to this site where they will donate a book to a needy child, if you leave a comment describing a book that changed your life. Go on over.Uhm…that is all. See, this is why I only post once a

Nature of Imagination

We are so fond of being out among nature, because it has no opinions about us. -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) There’s nothing more inspiring than nature. Ask Frost, Walden, Thoreau… even Nietzsche (who I otherwise abhor). Whenever I need to recharge, I take a walk in the twelve acre park right across the street from

Too Much Drama

Fiction is full of impossible things: magic, international conspiracies, convoluted murder plots in sleepy little towns, Armageddon…but at what point does it become unbelievable? I know I can accept pretty much anything if I’m introduced slowly. When I first started watching “Buffy”, I had no idea that by season 7 I’d be saying “they’ve averted

Going Luckless

I’ve always been able to feel “the luck groove” as I call it. It’s sensing the right time to leave the house for a walk so I avoid the rain and run into an interesting person in the park to chat to yet still make it to breakfast before they stop serving at 10:30. I
