If I hear that song ONE. MORE. TIME. Bet, I'm going to turn into Scrooge.

There's this song called "Merry Christmas, Darling" that the Carpenters did, and honestly, I can't listen to any of their stuff. That's not to say they're bad. They're not. It's just that my mom u...

So, you're scrolling through the inter webs and doing everything else in the world besides writing, right? Right. You should be writing.

I should be, too! I do have a plethora of excuses lined up and ready to take on the firing squad for me. We've had everything from su...

Writing has always been a rather reclusive task. I'll admit to holing up in a corner of my house with some tea or coffee and writing into the dead of night. I mean, it may or may not be 3:35am at the moment. You get my drift. Writing is usually a lonesome job.

But, it d...

It's April, writers. Grab your pencils. Are you packed for camp yet? Camp NaNoWriMo kicks off today, and while I didn't go to camp last year, I'm planning great things for this year. That is--if the trees don't kill me first.

Today's pollen count here in Georgia is well...

It's almost St. Patrick's day, and of course, I'm celebrating the occasion at work by encouraging my students to write about whether or not they actually believe in luck. Is there such a thing as a twist of fate, or do you work hard to make your own luck? That's up to...

Happy December, everyone!

It's that magical time of year here in Georgia where people are buying Christmas trees and wearing short-sleeved t-shirts in the humid rain. (It's been cold some, but I literally just went outside, at night, and was warm enough to wear flip flo...

I quit writing. For the past two months, I haven't really written (which is saying a lot for someone who wrote daily). My friends on Facebook know that I pulled all of my stories off of the internet and speculated writing under a different name. Why?

Well, when you have...

As the queen of unfinished projects, I'm here to tell you: it's okay to write what you want to write. I've never written a trilogy before. I've long-since been mesmerized by authors who were creative and inventive enough to write a series of novels. I decided to try my...

Happy belated New Year, everyone! I hope you've all been doing better in 2018 than most of us felt in 2017. I'm still here, folks. I've been busy at home with family and teaching. I've actually been teaching kiddos in China English, and I love it! Some of those kids ar...

If you're close to me, then you know my mom passed away recently. It was very unexpected. She was only 57 years old, and though she wasn't in perfect health, she wasn't sick enough to pass like that. She went to sleep, had a heart attack in her sleep, and never woke up...
