Random babble and questions that my brain comes up with, usually when I'm supposed to be sleeping or focusing on other things. Wheeeee!

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Returning to Reality

Well, my vacation in the mountains is officially over. I’m sure you think I’m going to brag about how much writing I have gotten accomplished. Well, I’m not. Other than the Thanksgiving post below this one and a few paragraphs here and there, nothing-nada-zilch. According to Kayla, the Smutlancer, this is okay. I’ll be completely …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to those of us in the US. For everyone else: Feel free to jump on the thanksgiving bandwagon. Have a random feast with family you can’t stand (or love to hate) and hash out all those silly differences over booze and turkey. For those traveling this holiday: I hope that your family was …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Seasonal Blahs

I almost started ranting about things that didn’t belong in this post, but I wrangled my inner demon (to release her another day) and got back on track! Well, it’s that time of year again, you know what I mean if you live in a place where the seasons change regularly. And even if you …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Safe, Sane, and Consensual

First, I want you to take a moment and follow Professor Sex on Twitter. October is National Kink Month and she’s doing lots of education tweets about the Kinky Life. It seems to be inevitable. Each time I mention ‘safeword’ on Twitter, someone has to reply that their safeword is basically something that’s just there. …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Emotionally Trapped

There is so much hate and pain in this world. I’m waiting for the haunted painting and the slime to start rising from below the streets like in Ghostbusters II. Just a Quick Warning: Not writing related, not a hot story, just me letting it out about all the violence in the world. First, no …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Sex and Sunshine

When it comes to sex, even today, we are having to fight to bring it out of the darkness. Schools teach – if anything at all – abstinence and disease and the mechanics. They don’t bother to teach you about consent – because you shouldn’t be having sex anyway, right? Growing up, we didn’t talk …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Reviewing Books

I know I don’t write the best reviews when it comes to reviewing period, but there are some things I look for specifically when I read them. Here’s a rundown! I will actually start with the lowest ratings. I want to know what annoyed readers about a book. Is there a specific reason they didn’t …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Sharing from Your Kindle

We’re all very busy people! Who has time to write reviews? (Please keep writing reviews, I’m being a wee bit sarcastic here!) There’s a feature I stumbled upon accidentally when I highlighted some text. I knew about highlighting previously – for like reference and to copy and search, or maybe get a definition for a …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: Bound, Gagged, and Stuffed into a Trunk

Last week, I was invited to Skype into Dr. J.’s writer group. The ferocity of our combined energy caused funnel clouds to appear in my area, but hell, what fun it was! Last week the talented Dr. J. invited me to Skype into her writers group get together. You have no idea how excited I …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Peek Behind the Curtains

Actually, only the bedroom curtains and blinds are closed, but the other curtains are all wide open. You’d have to walk halfway into my yard to see inside and yes, I’d see you coming. I’ve been wracking my brain for something to share all week long. It has been one crazy day after another. I …

A Penny for your Thoughts: I’m an Idiot

When you haven’t done something in quite some time, it’s stupid to throw yourself overboard. And that’s where i make a boating pun when this has nothing to do with boating of any kind. Dr. J and I are trying to keep each other in check. We’re trying to make sure we keep our goals …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Off the Rails

I feel like I owe an explanation for my lack of posting, twittering, and so forth. I haven’t been pressured for it or anything, but it’s weighing on me and I wanted to let everyone know that things are about to be back to normal (whatever normal is… I tend to be a bit weird.) …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Why You Should Be Writing

Why Everyone Should Write Eliza David (@ElizaDWrites) said it best on twitter when she sent out to the world: “I want every woman to pick up a pen & write. A novel, an essay, a blogpost, a poem, a sentence. Your words deserve a voice. #FridayFeeling” I’d like to add to this though. Not just …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Reoccurring Read

Question: What book do you return to in rough times – the times where someone has broken your heart, or let you down, or the world just seems too harsh and cruel?  If you’re a member of Audible, then you’ve probably heard about Audible Channels. If you haven’t, take some time to check them out. …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Sex is not Dirty

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby On a serious note, though, it seems that sex is more in the news now than ever… and a lot of it is bad news. People coming forth about molestation and/or rape years (sometimes decades) after the horrific experience. I hurt for the people in the world that have gone …
