The good, the bad and the ugly

Had a bad day yesterday.  I always decide when the knee gets really bad that something is wrong with it.  But then I got up today and it was quite tolerable.  I can't understand how the damn ugly thing can go from bad to good in just a few hours.  ...

OH, HELL

Hubby left a pen in his jeans pocket and it went through the laundry.  Luckily, the load was almost all his clothes.  All I had in it were a few items of underwear.  He had like five or six good t-shirts, the one pair of jeans and almost every pair of...

BUT SHE'S NOT REAL!

I don't usually go through this much angst over killing my characters, but this one really deserves to live.  She deserves a little happiness, a child or two, some credit for standing up to the evils in her life.  But alas, I can't do it - she has to...

Thinking About Writing Something

Hey - the old noodle isn't in top form today, so bear with me if you can.   I had a bad day yesterday.  Bad enough that I was a few minutes from asking Hubby to take me to the Emergency Room.  But I held off, and I'm glad I did because today has...

DETAILS, DETAILS

I was sitting here minding my own business bopping around on the web, when an advertisement popped up from a place called MAD.  They showed the covers of six romance novels - one by Danielle Steele, and right next to it, one by me!  I'd never heard of...

Writing Challenge #4

His was a self-perpetuating phenomenon if only he knew; that one glorious flash of light he saw each morning caused the blindness that filled every other moment of the day.   (This only works if I count self-perpetuating as one word.)

Writing Challenge #3

The child knew from the first moment that he breathed air; it wasn't long before the world knew what he knew, but it was too late for everyone else.

Writing Challenge #2

Time travel, he discovered, was as real as the wooly mammoths that were charging toward his little time machine where it sat on the plains of Future Indiana!

ONE OF THOSE MOVIES ...

Came out of the bedroom the other day, heard like three words from a movie and knew it was "Hoosiers."  I've watched that movie at least 50 times and will likely watch it 50 more if I live long enough.  I guess my second favorite is "The Great Escape"...
