MM – I’m a REAL Writer

Today marks the day that I feel I've become a real writer. No, not because I'm working on my fifth Maeve Sawyer book (for a total of seven, first draft novels sitting on my hard drive). And not for the other bazillions of reasons I should know I'm already a real writer. But for me,... Continue Reading →

MM – Microblog Mondays

When I participated in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) back in November 2014, I stumbled upon the idea of doing short, social media status update-types of blog entries. This is part of the description from the Stirrup Queens website about Microblog Mondays - MicroblogMondays is a response to the mass exodus from long blogging in... Continue Reading →

Blog on!

November was a tremendous learning experience for me. I was able to complete both National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), and when it was done, I still felt the urge to sit at the keyboard and peck away (unlike past years, when I felt creatively burnt out well into the...

Happy Turkey Birthday, Mom!

Happy Turkey Birthday, Mom! Our Nor'easter delayed Thanksgiving feast is close to being done, and the house smells amazing. Today also happens to be my mother's birthday - we brought her up from Massachusetts this past Tuesday for a combined Thanksgiving and birthday visit, never imagining both celebrations would end up being the same day....

Fractured fairy tale

Back in 2009, I gave my writing group a prompt, called "Fractured Fairy Tale." The gist of it - you take an existing fairy tale and turn it into a parody, much like the beloved cartoon from my youth. The following was my fairy tale contribution. *~*~*~*~*~*~* Once upon a time, long, long, ago, deep... Continue Reading →

Money can buy happiness

Happy Freakout (aka Black) Friday! Rather than spending the day spending money and shopping, I decided to hang at home, meander memory lane with my mother, chat with my children, and hope for hubby to return home soon. Oh, and wrangle words - here are a few more from my former, fictional self. Money Can... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving Throwback Thursday

On Tuesday, hubby and the eldest went down to Massachusetts to pick up my mother for a week long, Thanksgiving visit. Yesterday, we all stayed at home and watched the Nor'easter turn our yard into a winter wonderland. Just after dinner, the power went out. Shortly after, our landlords started the generator, so our heat,... Continue Reading →

Nude beginnings

My fictional self, known as Catherine Trevor (InternetG33k if you're nasty) has another repost she would like to share. We've had many conversations recently as to who should be in charge of this blog from now on. I'm still not sure how it will all play out, but in the meantime, here is another of...

Don’t worry, be hoppy

Nope, not a typo - I meant hoppy. I promise it will make sense when I'm done. What doesn't make sense (or does it? *grin*) is that I've noticed the blog entries I've written as my alter ego, Catherine Trevor (aka InternetG33k) have garnered more attention than my non-fiction stuff. For the moment, I will... Continue Reading →
