THANK YOU. That line absolutely drives me nuts. If not in reference to lice, it makes no sense at all.

Writer fiends if you are near minnesota, the is a terrific resource with classes, mentors, and seminars. The writers I met here were really prepared to talk about their work. That's HUGE.

Husband: I'm going to catch the horses so we can move the yearling bulls out to pasture. Me, writing: Um-hmmm. Husband, returning an hour later: Don't worry, I got the bulls moved by myself. Me, blinking: What bulls?

That may be partly a difference in genres. In romance there is always pressure, direct and indirect, to produce more as fast as possible due to the rate at which our readers gobble up books.

*high five* I celebrated finishing a chapter by sweeping accumulated mud and cow shit out of the porch.

That is the conundrum that otherwise employed writers constantly face. "In order to develop my writing career I need to put out more books, but if I commit to more books I risk setting myself up for impossible to meet deadlines." Plus life, family, etc.

If I had still been working at a regular full time job instead of as my husband's ranch hand, I would have failed. The book wouldn't have come out until Christmas 2019.

This was me until my last book. That was the first time I had such a hot mess on my hands and no wiggle room left in the deadline so I HAD to set aside everything else for weeks. AND IT SUCKED.

I finally figured out how this could be. It's all of us hermits who avoid speaking to anyone unless forced who are skewing the curve. Unless we have to count the constant, silent stream of curses while I'm writing?

God bless my child for being a late sleeper as a young 'un. And now he gets himself up half an hour before us so he can get his cartoon fix before school, but is VERY QUIET so we don't shut him down.

I have a fantasy of a Senate and House full of dads with babies on hips and moms nursing their infants, while they all debate complex policy knowledgeably, and with rational arguments. And the grandpas change the diapers on the desks, leaning sidewise into their mikes.

I dunno, but my alarm goes off at six a.m. and I utter my first curse word at 6:00.01.

I want to know how all those average Americans get to set their alarm for just before eleven a.m.

another reason I like postcards. The most I ever have to do is put a wide border around the book cover to make it fit the proportions of the card.

So I was in a store Monday and a little girl looked a dress and said, "That's pretty, Mommy, but it's long so you can't wear it 'cuz it will only fit long people and you're short."
