Wednesday on Writing: Evolving Language

A debate often comes up in writing discussions about the way the American English language is changing, and is it a good or bad thing. A lot of people tend to get defensive about additions, deletions, and changes in usage that seem to keep coming up every year. New words are added to dictionaries, old … Continue reading Wednesday on Writing: Evolving Language

Friday (TV) Review: Good Omens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars We recently finished watching this six part adaptation of the Terry Prachett/Neil Gaiman book of the same name. I am currently reading the book, also, so this will be my impression of the TV show without the full knowledge of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed the series.

Monday Musings: I Have Holes in My Head

Well, my ears, actually. I had my ears pierced many years ago, but after a while, I stopped wearing earrings.

That brought me to something we as writers hear a lot (or at least, I do) and that is: … Continue reading Wednesday on Writing: Something is Better than Nothing

Monday Musings: He’s My Dog. I Get to Decide Who He Interacts With

I probably pissed someone off last week. I took Lambeau out for his morning pee-and-poop. We walked around the cul-de-sac as usual and he did his thing. On the way home, he decided he wasn't quite finished pooping so we walked along the side of the garage toward the back of the house and he … Continue reading Monday Musings: He’s My Dog.

Wednesday on Writing: Training- and Retraining- Your Writing Muscles

If you read Monday's post, you know that I have been kind of down and out as far as writing goes for the last two weeks. Either I had too little time or was too sick to worry about word counts. Naturally, I fell behind. I expected that. What I didn't expect was finding that … Continue reading Wednesday on Writing: Training- and Retraining- Your Writing Muscles
