My week…

I wrote my first essay in 20+ years. Seems like I would have written one somewhere in that time frame, but I never did. I had to write a Literacy Narrative essay. It was to be about a significant time in my life relating to reading or writing. I chose writing obviously! I thought that […]

Glorious Friday

Today marks the 1st Friday in 14 years that I am not working retail! I am dubbing it Glorious Friday! I don’t know if anyone else had called it that, but I don’t care! Glorious Friday! How did I celebrate this? Not shopping I can tell you that! I celebrated with my husband by watching […]

Time Bear update

I realized the other day that writing Time Bear wasn’t fun anymore. I still loved the original story that started the journey, but everything else was feeling forced.

Taking a break today…

I am taking a break today, getting ready for my first big final or assessment as WGU calls them! Trying to stay calm and remember that I know this stuff. Will be back tomorrow with more excerpts or something else 🙂   Happy writing! 🙂

Roche Harbor (ex.6)

Marianna was sitting at her desk reading World without End. “Straying from the classics I see?” Mariana smiled. “If we limit ourselves to the classics, we fail to recognize new classics in our midst.” “Like Sam’s magnum opus.” James stated as he took his usual seat next to Sam. “Speaking of, how did the writing […]

Roche Harbor (ex.5)

“Richard is outside waiting to take us.” James announced two pieces of bacon in his hand and one dangling from his lips. “Let’s go if you want to get your tea in time to make first period.” “Where’d you get those?” “Your mom left them in the oven with some pancakes. I heated them up […]
