Friday Reads – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on June 16, 2017 |

Between preparing for the summer drama camps at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts and extra time spent with the new dog, Hannah, I have not had much down time. Which is probably a good thing in a way, as I am getting lots of exercise.  Today I’m going to share another excerpt from Evelyn […]

Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on May 5, 2017 |

Tonight we open the comedy show at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts. The first act is a short play, “Anne-Arky” written by Lindsay Price, and it is great fun. I’ve worked with a great cast of players, and a terrific assistant director, Jamie R. Turney, and it has been a real pleasure these past […]

#fridayreads Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

It is only fitting that, on this day in particular, I continue sharing excerpts from the book I’m writing about my mother. This is her birthday. She died three years ago at age 95, and I still miss her. I am not sure when I will never miss her, or even if that is possible. […]

#Fridayreads Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

So, this morning when I came into my office to work on a blog, the ending for a short story I’d been working on popped into my head. I opened the story, thinking to just add some notes, but the narrative, and dialogue, was flowing, so I went with the flow. Almost two hours later, […]

#Fridayreads Excerpt From Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on April 7, 2017 |

This is another except from my WIP, Evelyn Evolving. It picks up from the one I posted a couple of weeks ago, introducing my grandmother, Regina. My mother loved pansies, and when I was a kid I would buy her some every Spring and plant them by the front porch of our house. She loved […]

Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on March 20, 2017 |

As I promised on Friday, here is an excerpt from Evelyn Evolving, the book I am writing about my mother’s life. I know little about what happened when my mother was just an infant that caused her father to leave and her mother to abandon Evelyn and her sister, so this is what I made […]

Monday Morning Blues

Posted by mcm0704 on March 13, 2017 |

Unless you are one of the few people who love the time changes that we get to experience twice a year, please take a moment to join me in a huge groan.  I particularly dislike the spring-forward time change, as if we are to jump with joy because it feels like 6 a.m. when we […]

It was two years ago today that my sister and I said a final goodbye to our mother. She had died on March 28th, and on April 2nd. we had a memorial Mass for her at the local Catholic church. I was honored to be able to sing her into heaven with two of my kids, Dany and […]

Excerpt From Evelyn Evolving

It was a very busy weekend for me, this third week of our Autumn Trails Festival in Winnsboro. It was Trail Ride weekend, so Friday afternoon I rode in a wagon in the Welcome parade. Here are some of the local rodeo riders leading out the parade. I rode with the Man of the Year, […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on July 27, 2015 |

 How was your weekend? I had another fun time at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts teaching my guitar student Saturday morning, then that evening attending a concert with Professor Porkchop and The Dishes. Very odd name for a band, and I wondered why it was chosen, then that V-8 moment occurred. Mega stars have […]
