Kids Are Weird

Posted Jan 15 2013 in , , ,

I hope to be back to regular posting now that the haze of the blog tour is over. It feels good to get back into the swing of things.  My kids, like many, love music. The radio is always on in the car (and pretty often in the kitchen while I’m doing stuff). They have […]

What’s in a Name?

Posted Sep 11 2012 in , , , , , ,

I hate having to come up with titles. That’s mostly because I suck at it. I’ve mentioned before that as I’m working on a book, the file is saved on my computer under the heroine’s name. My debut MORE THAN THIS went through 3 titles before my editor came up with MORE THAN THIS. I […]

Before I get to my mash-up of awesome links for the week, I have something to show you. I recently had a birthday and I guess it was supposed to be a big one (see the title). I’ve said it before, I’m not much for celebrating for myself, but my best friend and I got […]

The Acceptability of Bad Grammar

Posted Feb 28 2012 in , , , , ,

I used to be an English teacher. I’ve edited for a couple of small e-publishers. I currently work as an editor for an education company. I love writers and the English language. All that being said, I’ve never considered myself a grammar Nazi or a grammar diva. I know the rules, but I can’t always […]

Today’s post will be short since I’m a bit swamped with still trying to revise a book and plan my son’s birthday party. I’m way behind on my TV watching, but plan to catch up this weekend. A ton of stuff has happened since last week, from the death of Whitney Houston to the Grammys […]

Friday Favorites – Life Stuff and Writing

Posted Jan 13 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Life stuff– Parenting is a big part of my day with 3 kids, so I am very familiar with Marianne Hansen’s day of questioning why we chose to have this life. On a particularly tough day, she chooses to blast Melissa Etheridge. Check out her post on The Zen of Melissa Etheridge. For me, it was always […]

Friday Favorites – Resolutions, Writing, and Inspiration

Posted Jan 6 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Resolutions– Since this is the first week of the new year, most bloggers have talked about resolutions. I’ve said lots of times that I’m not a resolution kind of person. I’m a goal setter, which is something I do throughout the year. So, in looking at the posts out there this week, I chose the […]

Holiday Traditions – Music

Posted Dec 20 2011 in , , , , ,

Last week I said that I didn’t grow up with too many holiday traditions, but music was always a part of Christmas. A local radio station starts playing only Christmas music right after Thanksgiving. Usually by the first week of December, I’ve tuned in and listen a lot. Half of our cookie baking day is […]

Friday Favorites – Mash-up of Fun

Posted Dec 2 2011 in , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks, especially with the holiday in there, but I did manage to find some awesome gems to read in my downtime. I hope you enjoy. Since I didn’t do any kind of mash-up last week, I know I missed out on a bunch of Thanksgiving-related blogs. Thankfully, Angela Peart […]
