#AccountaClub? Thanksgiving week? Who are we kidding?!

Standard

Though the fitness was great this week, of course there’s been no writing or editing worth mentioning, so why not focus on the writing past? That is complete? And conveniently housed in book form?

BUT WAIT! THERE ARE STILL MORE! Here they are.

Even quick reads:

This collection of short stories should be free, and it is from other sellers! Like:

#WednesdayWisdom: Breathe

Standard

Just breathe. Just for a moment.

As we go into the holidays, as the news comes barreling in, barraging us with information, none of it good, as people get testy and old wounds start to tingle, just breathe.

Just sit. Listen to what’s around you. Stare at something you’ve never really examined. Exist in the moment and know each moment does, eventually, pass.

This time of year brings us joy, often, and stress, often. For some people, there is no joy at all, only a long, bleak season pitted with landmines.

Be kind to others, be patient with others, because you have no idea what emotional tightrope they’re on.

Be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself, because you know exactly what kind of emotional tightrope you’re on.

And for now, just breathe.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, and if you celebrate, a great Thanksgiving.

#TuesdayThoughts: Shower blogging?

Standard

I need to simultaneously write my blog and be in the shower, and I think that this is just another failure of technology. That should be possible.

Although I’m pretty sure it would vastly expand the ways in which I could hurt myself, but still, progress is progress.

Thanksgiving is two days away and people are busily prepping. We no longer make dinner; it was a change I suggest a few years ago and every single year I love it more.

This year I’ve added a complication in that I’m baking a dessert. Of course there is the slightest chance that I’ll see something at the store and say, HMM, and save myself the time of that, but baking can be fun, I’ve discovered.

Rather than braving the grocery store tomorrow, I think today will be better. I hope today will be better.

Anyway, since I’ve got to do these things serially rather than simultaneously, I’ve used up my time for this part. Have a great Tuesday.

#AccountaClub? NAH! Shameless Self-promotion!

Standard

And I have others! Here they are.

#AtoZChallenge: Ida

Standard

Sorry. She just won’t let “I” pass without getting her due. Aunty Ida, that is.

Who is Aunty Ida, you ask conveniently hypothetical reader? Why she’s a brilliant scientist slightly more, um, well, enthusiastic than she should be.

Don’t tell her I said that.

Her bad side is a place you do not want to be. For sure.

While fictional, I’m not sure Aunty Ida is entirely fictional. Sometimes I feel as though she’s out there, somewhere, in a parallel somewhere or another, dictating her stories to me through the distance of space and time and reality.

If anyone could, she could.

For the writers among us, do you have characters like Ida? Ones who boss you, who tell you what’s what? Who demand your attention and their spotlight on the page?

Want to meet Aunty Ida? Here she is.

Did ya get a new Kindle for Christmas??

Standard

It’s probably feeling kind of empty.

You should fill it. But with what? What oh what should you download onto your brand new Kindle?

Oh I know!

Check out my books! They’re even free to read with Kindle Unlimited.

Only $0.99!

Hope you’re having a magical holiday!

Have you met Aunty Ida?

Standard

Because she’d love to meet you.

More specifically, she’d love to meet your brain.
