Tried and Failed #WIP Wednesday

Hey, everyone. It’s already the second week of April, and it’s been a while since I wrote a WIP Wednesday post. This one is more of a WIHW (What I Haven’t Written) story. I thought by now I would have already written tons of words this year. Wrong! So far, 2022’s word count is shaping... Continue Reading →

Movies, Music, and Writing

It’s no secret that my all-time favorite movie is Casablanca. What’s not to love about this classic with a cast including Bogart, Bergman, Peter Lorre, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains? It also contains some fantastic quotes. "Here's looking at you, kid." “Play it, Sam.” This is often misquoted as “Play it again, Sam.” (Bogart never... Continue Reading →

Pour it On #NewRelease by @StaciTroilo

Hey, everyone! I posted my January reviews yesterday, but this one deserves special recognition. Pour it On is Staci Troilo's latest release - the second book of her Keystone Couples series.

A Book of Shorts (working title) is a collection of thirteen short stories. I’ve shared a couple of excerpts in... Continue Reading →

Thank You, John Denver

Inspiration for my stories comes from many different places. Sometimes it’s an observation made in a crowded restaurant. It may be from a photo prompt or from a family story. Other times, ideas just pop in my head. But often, it’s songs from favorite groups or singers. John Denver’s music inspired some of my early... Continue Reading →

Coming Home #WIPWednesday

Hey, everyone. Autumn is in full swing, and it’s my favorite time of the year. Of all the seasons, I think this one is the one that seems to bring about the most change—the cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and migrating birds. While we haven’t yet had “frost on the pumpkin” in Texas, it’s only a... Continue Reading →

The Dare #shortstory @vocal_creators

Hey, everyone. I learned about Vocal Media a few months ago from my friend Staci Troilo. If you aren't familiar with the site, it's a platform where writers can share stories, enter challenges, and earn money. I debated for a while before deciding to join, and I've just submitted my first story. With Halloween almost... Continue Reading →
