The Month of Insanity!

Let the insanity begin!! The flurry of action that occurs every year in November has returned. We collect our candies, our snacks, drinks, comfy sitting spots, and tools of creation. We mentally prepare for the onslaught of words, words, words! I am, of course, talking about NaNoWriMo. It’s here. In but mere hours we, the […]

An Explosion of Chaos (aka Moving)

No, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth. I have, in fact, fallen into a vortex of chaos unlike anyone has ever seen. The struggle is real, folks. The battle rages on and on – a battle, I fear, that I am losing. For those not in the immediate circle of ‘All […]

Done! Sort of…

Finally! Part one of this monstrous beast I’ve been working on for literally TWENTY YEARS is finished! FINISHED!!! Sort of… Draft One is finished, thanks greatly to the push from this year’s Camp NaNoWriMo. Hooray; bells are ringing; bust out the bubbly. No, don’t do that cuz you know what’s coming. Is it really done? No, of […]

April CampNaNoWrimo 2018

April approaches. Can y’all even believe it?? I can’t! As cHaOs continues to revolve in massive poop storms around my real life existence, my author/publisher life… erm… also revolves around a few massive poop storms. Looks like they’re finally meshing together! Growth. However, in all seriousness, the final steps for the release of Hellfire are underway. […]

That Which We Cannot See

fi·bro·my·al·gia ˌfībrōmīˈalj(ē)ə/ noun a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas. The definition hardly explains what it is like to live with this illness. It is an oversimplification of an incredibly complex disorder. Why the sudden downer? Well, it isn’t really sudden and it isn’t really a downer, just […]

When cHaOs Reigns

You thought this was going to be about dreaming, didn’t you? Fooled you! Dreaming requires actual sleep, which I get very little of. No, these are all the little thoughts that happen right in that blessedly odd moment just before sleep hits; when my body says ‘stop’ and my brain says ‘but wait!’. New ideas […]

Snow Days & the Funk

 Yet again, the powers that be have declared that the thin layer of white fluff on the ground is too much for our precious spawn to handle. All institutions of learning have been closed, and parents all across the land silently weep into their booze-less coffee cups. Why, powers that be? No, that is actually […]

Welcome to 2018!!

Ooh, puppies!!! Ok, focus! I’m late to the new year celebration game cuz I was on vacation over the new year. Be jelly. Or not, no, don’t actually be jelly. Vacation was only sorta fun. Stupid storm took all our warm weather away, teenagers insisted on being miserable, I got sick, and the littles were, […]

Winding Down

We are coming down to the wire. The last two weeks of 2017. I have to post pictures of little sweater-sock snowmen cuz we haven’t gotten any real snow at all yet. There was a dusting last week but it didn’t stick despite looking real pretty while it fell from the sky. Now is the […]

#MOMFAIL (aka #EVERYTHINGfail)

Oh yes, it is the season of the #momfail which then translates to the season of the #wtfdidijustdo otherwise known as the #EVERYTHINGfail. Thanksgiving has come and gone, dragging NaNoWriMo right along with it. It was there, then it wasn’t and this was probably one of my worst NaNo’s to date. I still “won” but […]
