I Love School Supplies!

I admit it. I love school supplies and since the beginning of August I have walked through stores and fondled notebooks and pens, folders and crayons. I need a support group!

Finding What You Didn’t Lose

I admit it. I sometimes find myself in some deep ruts that I can’t seem to claw my way out of. I get caught up in all the day-to-day detritus and lose track of what I want to accomplish. My writing takes a backseat to, well, everything else in the world. Sometimes this happens because …

Fire in the Belly

What good, indeed??! I say, if you aren’t sure where your passion lies, at least figure out where it DOESN’T take you. Then you can passionately work to keep yourself away from that which doesn’t kick up your skirt. But by all means, do SOMETHING! Life is so tenuous and short. It passes before you know it. …
