I Cannot Tell A Lie

Posted by mcm0704 on June 30, 2009 |

I received the I Never Tell A Lie meme from Helen Ginger at her Straight From Hel blog. Here are the rules: Sometimes you can learn more about a person by what they don’t tell you. Sometimes you can learn a lot from the things they just make up. If you are tagged with this […]

Critique –Guest Blog by Christine Duncan

Posted by mcm0704 on June 29, 2009 |

As I have been doing this blog tour, I have been amazed by the questions other writers ask me. One question I get a lot is, “Do you really think critique groups help?” Yes. Okay, that should be the end of the questions, don’t you think? But it seems that many writers have had bad […]

Another Excerpt From My New Book

Posted by mcm0704 on June 25, 2009 |

ROAD TRIPOr, Are we There Yet, Papa Smurf My husband’s idea of a vacation is two weeks of puttering around the house and watching what day-time television he can stand. My idea of a vacation, however, is to go somewhere, preferably to Michigan, with stops along the way in Kentucky and West Virginia to see […]

Making Music

Posted by mcm0704 on June 23, 2009 |

This past Saturday I attended the Northeast Texas Music Festival in Winnsboro. There were a number of great performers starting just after noon and running until late that night. It made for a long, hot day, but it sure was worth it. I was given a press pass, which is always nice, so I got […]

A Father’s Day Tribute

Posted by mcm0704 on June 21, 2009 |

A popular sentiment on mugs and tee-shirts says, “Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a Daddy.” Those words have always impressed me, perhaps because they express something I’ve always wanted to convey. My father is, and continuously has been, a ‘Daddy’ to me, even though I didn’t always view […]

I just read a great article by Elmore Leonard with some great writing tips. Many of them are ones we have heard before, but he has a knack for restating them with a bit of a punch. He starts his article with, “These are rules I’ve picked up along the way to help me remain […]

A common knee jerk reaction to some accident or natural disaster is for people to call on the government to enact new laws to protect us. Some people think that “It’s time for us to hold our lawmakers accountable for keeping us safe,” as one person wrote in a recent letter to the editor in […]

How Low Can We Go?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 15, 2009 |

Just when I thought I’d heard it all when it comes to the absurdity of people, I run across a story like one I just read in The Dallas Morning News. It seems that a woman in North Texas who was selected to be on Bridezillas – a show that should be on the bottom […]

If Life is a Bowl Of Cherries, What Am I Doing in The Pits?

Posted by mcm0704 on June 12, 2009 |

I remember when I first read Erma Bombeck’s wonderful book I thought she made up all the craziness she wrote about. But I also thought that maybe somewhere in the midst of her jokes would be some tidbit of wisdom that would help me get a handle on the insanity at my house. Alas, all […]
