Autumn

I have decided Autumn is my favorite of all the seasons. I used to love spring for all the color but lately it has been mutes, the weather has been really funky and so the flowers just have not had their usual oomph.

Autumn, however, is still full of color and it also brings several of my favorite seasonal goodies like pumpkin pie, birch beer, hoodies, warm apple cider. Not sweating to death or freezing, nice and comfy in my fleece pajama bottoms and a hoodie.

I enjoy Autumn by sitting with my tea and a good book, or knitting my latest shawl with a blanket over my lap. Watching my cats playing, as the cooler weather gives them so much more energy and they tend to run around the house like little furry madmen playing tag with each other.

What is your favorite season and why?

Summer of Amery - Available now on Amazon

My latest short in the Bandages on the Soul Collection, Summer of Amery, is now available exclusively on Amazon Kindle.

After a brutal attack, Trinity retreated to her family's summer home on the beach where she encountered an interesting new friend, Amery.

Amery guides her through the healing process, but when she returns home, everything she believed to be true has been turned upside down and she is not sure what is real anymore.

Summer of Amery takes the harsh reality of an attack and brings it into the world where magic is real and healing comes with tea and cookies.

Amazon US $0.99
Amazon CA $1.28
Amazon UK £0.99

Slowly but surely....

At the beginning of day three of getting back to writing. Still low in the goals, but they are going up. Wrote 1084 words on Monday and 1856 words yesterday. Would have had more yesterday but I was fighting with this one paragraph that was just not write and eventually I just got rid of it. A couple hundred words and at least an hour of writing down the drain.

All well, can't dwell, it happens.

The snow is finally starting to melt, my poor plants look so sad though. Hoping that was the last of the evil white stuff so they will recuperate.

Well, I guess I have stalled enough, time to get back to writing.

Have a great day!

Writing Challenge or Writing Death Sentence?


So I have been doing really bad at keeping up with writing. Even now, when I should be writing, I am here on my blog instead.

A good friend of mine Dawn McCullough-White (Facebook and Amazon) suggested we have a writing competition to get back to writing as this winter has taken it's toll on more than just my muse. Each day we will post our word count.

Hmm, this may end really poorly for me as the day is already half over and I am only at 650 words. Oops?

Doesn't help that the cold front that just dumped some snow on us is wreaking havoc on my sinuses, or that the dog keeps trying to get to the birds in front of the house through the window, or perhaps it is the fact it snowed, on my flowers, in April. Or maybe I am just making excuses. Who knows. All I know is I really need to get back to writing.

Well, then... Here I go.

No, really... I am off.

Definitely this time...

Happy reading everyone.

Spring Not Spring

We had several days of really nice weather, I started writing again, it was beautiful.

Then yesterday this white stuff started coming down from the sky, but the thermometer read 35.8*F. What is this sorcery? My bulbs are all coming up, my crocuses are in full bloom and this happens?

So it continues to lightly snow all night and because the temperature dropped we had a very light accumulation as you can see in the picture.

This morning it was cold and rainy/sleety out, which was miserable for standing outside waiting for the bus with the pup (who by the way was loving the weather) to see the boy off to school. After becoming cold, wet rats, we came inside and she pouted on her doggy bed because wet dogs are not allowed on the couch.

I tried to write, but the miserable weather just kills my muse so instead I cleaned the kitchen. Now I am sitting down with a fresh mug of tea and a banana and hoping for warmer weather.
