During a Break in Writing

I only have a few moments to post something because Mama is going to be back shortly and want to use the laptop again. She’s in the middle of writing the sequel to Misfit McCabe and when she’s in this mode I usually have to keep my paws off the laptop. Well, I just wanted to make a comment to … Read More

Possibly a Writer’s Best Friend

While I was working on the sequel to Misfit McCabe yesterday, I decided that the mp3 player and a pair of headphones may quite possibly be the writer’s best friend. Pop the headphones in, turn the music on and let the story flow. The music helps to cut down on the interruption factor. So, when Denny starts to read me … Read More

Message from a Reader

It is so nice to get a message from a reader who enjoyed your writing, especially when you weren’t expecting it.

It’s Been Too Long

I can’t believe I finally got my paws on the laptop again. I’d better not waste any time, but get right into it. I hope everyone had a nice holiday. We had a good one, although, I do have to say, that I didn’t get the one thing I really wanted. In fact, I for it with all of my … Read More

Borders on the Slippery Slope

A local author walked into a bookstore. . . sounds like the beginning of a joke, doesn’t it. Well, what followed was a joke, but not in the least amusing for anyone involved. In our current economic times, good customer service is increasingly important to help maintain the customer base. As a consumer, I’m making my purchases much more cautiously … Read More

WITW is MMC? – Woodinville, WA

I have fond memories of Woodinville. I was actually in Washington on business, I forget exactly what the purpose was, but I was visiting the office that my company had in Bothell before heading up to our Vancouver office. Since there was a weekend in between, I was able to attend the Annual Fool’s Day Parade, also known as the … Read More

2008 in Review

I’m not really a believer in resolutions.  The word resolution to me is like the phrase, “I’ll try.”  When someone says, “I’ll try,” what they really mean is “don’t hold your breath.”  It’s like a built in excuse for failure.  With “I’ll try”, if I succeed, then I’m the hero, if I fail, well, I never promised anything.  A resolution … Read More
