In Which I Compare Writing To Knitting

I’ve been doing a lot of knitting lately. I’ve also been doing a lot of writing. With NaNoWriMo almost over I’ve been working hard to sit down and write every day. I haven’t always managed that but I’m much better than I was last year. Now what does knitting have to...

A Quick NaNo Update: 31,000 words and Counting

I can’t believe it! I have officially written 31,000 words. And that’s after being behind by 6,000 words over this last weekend. Consider that every day adds another 1,667 words to whatever I end up being behind and you can guess how much work it take to catch up. I spent...

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.

The Best Christmas Toy Ever

Day 25’s prompt took me back. Write about your favorite toy. She was mine. Her original outfit was worn out a long time ago (though I do still have it in a box somewhere) and replaced by one a found about ten or so years ago. Her name is Alisha Anita...
