Oh the best laid plans…you know the end of that quote. I had all these plans to get so much writing done on my time off! Blog posts queued up, WIP work, but darn reality anyway, threw me for a huge loop. On the 19th, I woke up early to blood spattered all over the […]
So sorry to all for the delay. Wild Wednesdays will return this week. Stay tuned!

Or if you don’t like fantasy, and prefer […]
For those of you with offspring, do they still have kids write the obligatory essay on summertime activities in school? I thought I’d give you a little reminder of summer if, like me, fall has closed you in with clouds and rain. Instead of being in front of a computer, this is where I spent […]
