I think it’s strange that my last post talked about time being lost and moments later I’m writing a post called The Time Twister. Maybe the book I’m about to review twisted my time in real life. 😉 Anyway, I finished reading Charlie Bone and the Time Twister (The Children of the Red King, Book … Read moreBook Review: The Time Twister
Where do the hours go? In fact, where do the days go? I can’t believe another week has flown by. In that time, I did little writing. I won’t waste your time or mine with excuses. I didn’t write.

And it’s even more amazing what a glimpse of an image or a fragmented sentence might produce in the mind. First, … Read moreProductive Planning
Yesterday, I emailed a friend and said, “I’m having one of those ‘why do I bother’ phases.” I go through this phase at least once a year. It’s nothing serious. I just start doubting my ability and my reasons for writing. Within a few days, a week at the most, I’m back to thinking like … Read moreI’ve been Invited!
