I Love This Chair (but it fits me too well)

I have the greatest chair in my home office. It isn’t anything fancy, and it isn’t a well-worn family heirloom. In fact, it’s a giant folding moon chair that I just bought this week. This thing is shaped like a deep saucer (hence the name), and it’s big enough for me to pull both of […]

I knew it…

Well, I knew it was going to happen. Before I ever sat down to type in the words blogger.com I knew it would happen. My afternoon was frittered away like dollar bills in a nine-year old’s pocket, and it was all the fault of this blog. Yep. You see, in order to create the blog […]

Jumping in with both feet…maybe

Okay. Every writer’s workshop I have attended has stressed the importance of blogging. All of the writer’s in the group I just joined do it. Why? I guess I had to do it to find out. So, here it is. I don’t know What on Earth I’ll blog about, or when I’ll find the time, […]
