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: 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 …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Submit to Anthologies

Submission Calls One way you can get your (author) name spread around the world is to write for Calls of Submission. Obviously, you’ll want to look for calls that are in the genre you prefer to write in (unless you want to be adventurous and peek into another). It’s not too difficult to find places …

A Penny for your Thoughts: A Dog’s Purpose Review

My daughter and I went to go see A Dog’s Purpose last night and it was everything the commercials made it out to be. A roller coaster of tears and laughter. Before you get up in arms about the abuse of the German Shepherd Hercules (perfect name by the way), please be aware that there’s …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Laundry Day

Laundry Day I have a friend who struggles to write and I feel bad. I do my best to write. I try to write at lunch, which doesn’t always pan out. I try to write in the evening, which again, doesn’t always pan out. The point is, to be writing in some way. I gave …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Socially Disconnected

My Personal Social Life Is … Dead? I’m a terrible friend. I’m also terrible at personal social media. I have no need to really shout from the digital rooftops what’s going on in my life. If someone messages me, I chat with them. My personal facebook is setup so that only people who have a …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Why I should wake up at 6am

I used to wake up at 6am Monday through Friday, without fail. Waking up at 6am gave me plenty of time to shower, take care of hair, makeup, and make coffee. If I didn’t eat a proper dinner, I could have something quick for breakfast. Normally, I don’t eat breakfast. I have a snack around …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Oh, the Feels!

I read this article by Mary McCarthy over at SpliceToday.Com and the first thing I thought of was how I do things in my life. I do things that make me happy and if something doesn’t make me happy, I think about how to do it in a way that will make it fun for …

A Penny for your Thoughts: Just one word

From Prolific to… what? While the ‘one word’ movement is mainly religious, I’ve pretty much twisted it to my own needs. Why shouldn’t I? It can work for everyone in a religious or non-religious manner. Last year, I chose Prolific. And while it means ‘present in large numbers or quantities; plentiful’ I feel that I …

A Penny for Your Thoughts: The New Year Resolution Trap

Prolific A friend of mine found a way to have a New Year Resolution without actually making resolutions. Instead of saying “I’m going to exercise more.” or “I’m going to spend less.” or “I’m going to learn how to do {insert wishful thinking here}.” you choose one word to help you grow throughout the year. …
