The Love Language

Good morning, y’all! I’m running late again this week. Seems to be my norm lately. I’m not sure if it’s that I have too many irons in the fire or I’m just distracted. Maybe both? I digress! Onward. This week’s topic of discussion for the Wednesday Weekly Blogger Challenge sponsored by Long and Short Reviews …

Wander-lusting

Photo by Kristina Gain on Pexels.com Who could have predicted when the WWBC topics were chosen for this year where we’d be today? I’m sure the topic of travel is one a lot of folks’ minds today, particularly with a holiday weekend coming up here in the US. Technically the last place I traveled was …

Just a Quickie

I have to tell y’all I believe it takes an enormous amount of talent to pull off a short story or novella. I mean, as a writer, when taking on such a feat, you’re agreeing to give your readers a complete story in a condensed form. You agree to supply the beginning, middle, and end …

Yes, I’ve pulled the Zombieland card. Ha! When I first saw the topic for today’s edition of Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge hosted by the fine folks over at Long and Short Reviews, I had to chuckle. I mean, I’m married to a Marine vet. I’m pretty sure no matter what comes to the door by …

To Be (Redeemed) or Not to Be (Redeemed)

This week’s Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge sponsored by Long and Short Reviews had me stumped a bit. The question is: what villain I’d like to see redeemed and why. I’m used to writing bad-ass heroes and heroines and never have much sympathy at all for the villains. So, this question had me thinking pretty hard. …

Merry Hallowthanksmas!

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Wednesday Weekly Blog Challenge sponsored by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic…favorite holiday and why.

Where Did That Come From?!

Good morning, y’all! This week’s blog challenge, sponsored by Long and Short Reviews, explores the topic: why I stopped reading a series that I love. So, I’m not one to call out other authors by name when they mess up colossally, so I won’t do that here. We all have a bad day, week, month, …
