I am not a woman who repeats phases. I’m a been-there-done-that kind of girl. There’s so much more in the world to explore, why would I go back to something I’ve already done? I don’t usually repeat movies or books, would much rather go to a new restaurant no matter how weird than repeat an old one, and I’m not even all that excited about repeat vacations. Give me something new. So it was with considerable shock that I’m repeating two of the following phases. Guess which ones. Was hugely into it 28 years ago, and have suddenly decided to buy my own bowling ball and shoes. Crochet, embroidery, needlework I used to do it all before kids. Suddenly, I’m stocking up on yarn and looking at specialty hooks again. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I started reading Joss Whedon’s biography and just had to revisit this awesome TV show. When

Sunday Rituals

It’s Sunday and I really just want to continue a Buffy marathon. I’m on season 3 now and I just love Joss Whedon’s talent. Every episode makes me smile. Great structure, amazing dialogue, and such a sense of fun while slaying. It rocks! My favorite line today is from Giles. He’s mocking Buffy’s mom. See my new mask? Isn’t it pretty?

So while I was bemoaning having to work on Sunday (because I didn’t get this done during the week) my husband offered to start the blog for me. Guess which of the following suggestions came from him. Rhapsodize on the brilliance of baseball. Especially Tiger baseball. (Hint: He grew up in Michigan) Landscaping companies don’t seem to be very well organized. Even though they ask for the

August Musings

Hello Beautiful! I’m having a lovely August, how about you? I was in NYC for the Romance Writers of America national conference last month, so guess what I did when I got home? Laundry. Duh. Slept for a week. Might have something to do with the massive hangover from RITA night. Rapidly got together a bunch of proposals for new projects and whipped them off to editors all over the publishing industry. Binge-watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Answer: 4. I’ve been reading a biography of Joss Whedon and just had to relive those Buffy years. Laundry is only now being contemplated a week later. I have a plethora of ratty shorts and tanks, but even those are getting low. As for the rest, well you might see a few new projects in the wind in the next few months, but nothing happens fast in this industry.   Something cool did
