Random Ramblings – Nine

Good morning! Or whatever part of the day it is when you are reading this… good that. I’m sitting here in hubby’s office, looking out the window as I try to figure out how to put two and two together via words and make sentences. There’s a contrail or a chemtrail –...

NaNo – Uh-oh?

November is National Novel Writing Month – aka NaNoWriMo. Simply put, it’s a fun, free-for-all, stress-filled gambit wherein writers of all levels of experience make solemn vows under the full moon (not really… well, maybe some do) that they will attempt to write a...

Random Ramblings – Eight

What a week. Whew! Surgery is over, I had that yesterday, and I am happily recovering at home. Currently, Pip the Kitten is acting as my foot warmer, and I’m comfortable. More comfortable, if a bit weaker, than I was Tuesday. I was expecting that but it’s still...

On the Matter of Epitaphs

Epitaphs have been on my mind the last few days. Yes, part of that is probably due in part to the fact that I’m having surgery this week, but it could also be the October effect kicking in. Tis the season where people share pictures of cemeteries and grave...

Stray Characters

John Hudson intrigues me. Given that I’m “finished” with the Olman County series, this is a bit of a perturbing development. Nonetheless, he does. When I first set up that series, John was a nasty piece of work. He was a chip off his old man’s block, his mother’s son...

In the Middle of the Night

If you have the Billy Joel song stuck in your head after reading that post title, you’re welcome. So do I. I miss being a night owl. For most of my life, even when I was a kid, I loved staying awake until the wee hours. That’s where I found a lot of magic, where I did...

How’s the Weather?

I don’t have much to say right now. My words are all locked up inside my head, bouncing around as I try to figure out how to approach this new series. I know what I want to achieve; I’m just not clear yet how to get there. I’m running late on time before the surgery,...

Time

Time does pass. It gets on with its business, leaving some behind, taking others along for the ride. Sometimes, the clock runs out before we think it should. Other times, it drags out long after we wish it would stop. I saw today that the father of someone I used to...

Random Ramblings – Seven

How are you all today? I’m doing okay. Have a lot of things on my mind and I’m up to my eyeballs in writing courses, so I’m not sure if I’m coming or going. HA! We’re two weeks today until surgery – I’m both excited about and dreading this. I think it’s going to  make...

It Don’t Come Easy

If I just gave you an earworm, I apologize and you’re welcome – Ringo Starr’s “It Don’t Come Easy” is a good song. And although it’s grammatically incorrect, the title is one hundred percent dead-on accurate in its spirit. If you’re talking about art of any kind, it...
