Censored, at Last!

I tried to get on my website from the free public wifi in a fine family dining establishment. (Okay, so, it was a Pizza Hut.) And I was promptly blocked with a message informing me that I had tried to access a website of a classification that is not allowed. My first thought was blogs

StoryTime Blog Hop: Sugar in the Raw

She needed the money. That was the long and short of it. Land of opportunity… maybe. But opportunities cost money, and she was living out of a suitcase, and eating her last few dollars. When she left home, those meager savings seemed like a fortune. Now—two weeks into New York City—she could see they wouldn’t

Just Between Friends

You know that one relative? The one who can’t take no for an answer, and consistently overestimates the closeness of their relationships? The one who brings up donor insemination (no, they’re not telling me about their plans, BTW) unprompted… (Yeah. That last one really is just me, isn’t it?) **sigh** They’re heeee—earrr. I have no

Continuing With the Website

There’s something weirdly satisfying about working on the website. I don’t know whether it’s the idea of a project that can be completed in a couple of days, or just that I like it so much better this way. It is better this way, isn’t it? Yes, I know there are a few links that

Is That Three, Yet?

They say bad luck runs in threes, and the last couple of days, I’ve been counting. Now, I’m holding my breath, and thinking Is that three? I think that was three. Yesterday, I blew up my neti pot. It probably didn’t actually say “Microwave Safe” on the packaging, but why wouldn’t it be? And I’ve

Renovation Has Begun

I am moving things around on my webpage, and I have things thrown around everywhere. The photos on that front page slider are all mine, although I have not the faintest what they have to do with anything else in the world. And eventually, I’ll have to change the “featured areas” to something meaningful and

Updating the Blog?

The thought of redoing my website has started fluttering through my mind, and I find myself looking at templates online. The first thing I’d do is change to a static homepage, and tuck my blog, itself a little further back. So, I’m looking at more graphically striking templates. I would still want a relatively narrow

Synopsis writing

I have been working on a synopsis and looking forward to… Is that right? Uhm… yes. Forward to more snow. The weather today was hot enough I thought about turning on air conditioning, crawling in the basement… crawling in the refrigerator… but, of course, it seems silly to turn on the air conditioning just so

Sharing Your Work

So, who is the scariest person you’ve ever shown your work to? There’s a part of me that feels I should draw names out of hats (or,  you know… the list of people I once knew) and send them my manuscript. You know. Just to say Hi. Remember me? This is what I’m up to.

Snow, Synopses, and Reading

It’s snowing, again. That’s the kind of weather where my characters have a tendency to curl up under their blankets and hibernate… at great length… across multiple pages… and remind me that I am in no way cut out to be an erotica writer. Gang snuggle? Really? I managed to make my way through the
