...as I was falling asleep all day long. Today I am grateful for my B-complex vitamin because it kept me awake after only getting a few hours of sleep. I'd like to say that it had everything to do with the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, but it'd be a sad lie and I'm… Continue reading Wakey, Wakey
My wonderful minions, please welcome mystery guest blogger LS Fayne today, who will be discussing self-publishing and why she chose it over traditional publishing. An interesting topic for those newbie writers out there. I've been talking with Linda for several weeks now, and she's a lovely lady. We have a few things in common, one… Continue reading LS Fayne – Why I Chose to Self-Publish
Since the spammers are being stupid now and only leaving me comments with links, which I won't EVER approve OR discuss outside of this sentence due to their subject matter (things best left for erotic tales and little blue pills), I will now have to switch topics. So there will be no more Spam Comment… Continue reading Writing/Editing Tip of the Week – Passive Voice
...when even though you're surrounded by people, you feel utterly alone. Ever feel like that? It's been almost 20 years since I've been without a dog in the house. Twenty. Fucking. Years. I can't even really begin to describe how it feels aside from the statement above. I miss my Moonbug, my K'Lar, my MacLeod,… Continue reading That Feeling…

"It's my birthday and I'll sing if I want to..." I've had a few people ask me what I want for my birthday. My first response is, of course, to sell LOTS of books. That's a given any day of the year, though, so I decided that since tomorrow is my birthday, I'd make a… Continue reading Birthday Wish List
We're now in the next chapter of this part of my life, not the song, even though that song is going through my mind because of the title. LOL At any rate, moving along . . . Some of you may have noticed I haven't mentioned someone lately. I'm apparently single again. I say "apparently" because… Continue reading Turn the Page . . .
For the past week, I've been attempting to come up with something to write for today's post, especially since I missed posting last week. I'm still at a loss, so I figured I'd just start writing the fucking thing and see what happens. This is the result. *Note: there will likely be a lot of… Continue reading Sorry for the Absence . . .
Sometimes, my bite is worse than my bark. *grins* I have spent more than half of my life working, and I'm what some would call a "Jill of all trades" because of the diversity of jobs I've held, from manufacturing to bartending to secretarial to computer lab technician to behavioral health paraprofessional. Not so… Continue reading On Careers & Working
I know I don't normally go all political on y'all, mainly because I just don't like talking about shit unless I study it, but these two bills have pissed me the hell off and I've been bitching about this shit for a couple of years at least, to deaf ears (see ACTA). If you're the… Continue reading SOPA / PIPA
