In all the excitement of the travel and what-not, I forgot to mention here that I finally finished the Zweig sweater!

So, it begins. With the crafts season coming up in October, I’ve got to roll! I wanted to post something, so I did a video. Enjoy!

Writing 101: Size Matters

Writing 101: Size Matters.

Every so often I will respond to these daily challenges, depending on my mood, the specific assignment and how I feel.  I guess I felt I had to respond to this, even though, in comparison, my comment was rather succint.  I said all I wanted to at the time!

I lived in a bright, little yellow house for the first 17 years of my life with my mother and my sister. I would imagine 12 is in there somewhere…When my mother first rented the place, she told me the neighborhood was very blue collar and quite comfortable. Right around my 12 year mark, I recall changes in our neighbors. Low-rent apartments were built and suddenly, we had to start locking our doors. And it wasn’t a whole slew of people, just a few that made life what it was because they were dicks. After that, of course, the real estate principle of regression kicked in, and we were compelled to move later on. But 12 was still a relatively good time.”

Has this happened to anyone else?

Unabashed Plug

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for…wait. What? Just checking to see if you were paying attention! Good.

In my recent course of events, thanks to electronic mass media, I have discovered branches of my family that I didn’t know existed. And I’m not talking about distant roots, I’m talking living, breathing, first and second cousins, nieces and nephews. I know, I’ve got a weird, dysfunctional family. And no, there is no “fun” in dysfunctional. I’d like to slap talk to the person who coined that little mock aphorism.

But back to the reason I am posting today. I’ve met family!  I find that great, soothing, life-affirming, wonderful.  My family is very small and any addition gives me…what?  Validation?  Whatever.  I’m enjoying it.  And when a family member starts up a cool online service, well, I’m going to plug it!

The type of service I’m talking about here will definitely appeal to all you writers looking to e-publish a book.  Have a look:
