There was no Saturday Report this week because I had nothing new to talk about. It’s just the same-old walking/standing practice with some physical therapy thrown in to speed things along. Working on the same old novel in progress. Yada yada… There is no book review today because I’m still reading Make It Stick: The …Read More
On Laughter: “It is a strange world, a sad world, a world full of miseries, and woes, and troubles. And yet when King Laugh come, he make them all dance to the tune he play. Bleeding hearts, and dry bones of the churchyard, and tears that burn as they fall, all dance together to the …Read More
I haven’t attended a critique group meeting for over three months. Tomorrow This evening I return for the first time since breaking that stupid little bone in my foot. Although I’ve critiqued the other members’ submissions via email, I haven’t submitted anything of my own. I’m off the hook for tomorrow’s meeting, but in two …Read More

Like all cats, Katie cannot let an open box just sit there unexplored. Be sure and stop by tomorrow because I have the famous and wildly popular sci fi author and ninja blogger Alex J. Cavanaugh as my guest. His post is about marketing and his advice is the best ever! Don’t miss it.

This is a question I’ve asked myself a few times over the years and consistently come up with the same answers. Yes, we can be done with anything (or anyone or anyplace) when its time has come and gone. No, passions don’t necessarily last forever (although they can…sometimes).

Speaking of the weather… Which is about all Coloradoans are talking about these days. I’d sure love to see one of these rainbows real soon. A double rainbow like this one from a few years ago would be an extra bonus. Colorado is known for the number of sunshiny days each year…but we’re seriously falling …Read More
