The Words Were In My Favor But…

It’s Day 4 so how about a very quick NaNo update? I got started a day late and as of yesterday morning I was still a day behind. But lots of words can happen in a day, and they did. Not only did I get caught up, I went over by...

BOOM, Baby! NaNo Is Here!

Sorry for the post blackout. Last week of October meant getting blitzed with end-of-season marching band events, end-of-regular-season football games, Halloween, a family emergency, and a visit from The Niece.

Short But Sweet…I Hope

Poetry Prompt Day 20: Let’s talk about love, baby. I didn’t do the poetic form, the Loop poem. I’ll give that a try another day.  And, today’s poem is rather short but I hope it’s as strong as I felt when I wrote it. I did try to make it longer...
