I’ve never minded change. Change brings new experiences, new challenges. Change is good. Until it’s not. I grew up on a farm in east central Illinois where my father tenant-farmed for a large landowner. My mother was a registered nurse and worked part of the year in a hospital in town. The farmhouse was a …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.
Most definitely! If you want to count the ways, boogie on over to Anne R. Allen’s Blog and read “REALITY CHECK: Mixed Martial Arts for Writers” by Ruth Harris. I suffered this week….for at least five minutes. The rest of the week I simply pretended I’m not a writer and did other stuff. I practiced …Read More
First of all, don’t forget to leave a comment at Allan J. Emerson’s Thursday guest post if you are a U.S. or Canada resident and want a chance to win a copy of his debut mystery, Death of a Bride and Groom. Meeting Jake I’m off to The Eclectic Reader this morning to attend Pam …Read More
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).

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
No matter where I go or what I do, Katie Cat is watching. Please stop by tomorrow and meet my guest of the week. Samantha Fountain is a fiction author and the creator of the Pitch to Publication project.
Of course, that’s personal opinion. But as much as I enjoy jumping into a new story and writing like crazy for a few months/years to complete that first draft, I heave a huge sigh of relief when I can move on to the next phase. Revision, rewriting, cutting and pasting, rearranging, adjusting, scooting one bit …Read More
The Week…Ugh This wasn’t a good a week for me. Non-productive. Boring. Achy from walking lopsided because of the crutches and walking boot. Finally stir crazy after all these weeks at home babying the broken foot. Ignoring the things I need to do to my new website/blog. And creeping doubt at my ability to get …Read More
I’m no singer, but I dearly love the people who can and do. I’m especially fond of a capella groups, so I brought you this video today for three reasons. First, Home Free is an excellent example of the talent out there today. Another group I’ve mentioned on this blog is Pentatonix. Wonderful music makers. …Read More
