Writing Tips

Posted by mcm0704 on March 10, 2017 |

First this cute meme to start us off with a smile: I had a busy week, interspersed with bouts of pain that had me away from my computer for large amounts of time, so I thought I would offer some writing advice from Kristen Lamb on the blog today. I enjoy her posts on all […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on July 29, 2016 |

Now that Drama Camp is over, I hope to get back to a regular schedule of blogging soon, but first I have to take time out for a toothache, a quick trip to Houston to see my sister who is ill, and the continuing battle with that nasty Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. So next week Slim […]

Is Self-Publishing For You?

Posted by mcm0704 on April 1, 2016 |

First, help me celebrate the fact that Ramsey Hunt symptoms are decreasing. I have days where I can spend up to an hour at a time on the computer and actually wrote 500 words this week on my book, Evelyn Evolving. That felt so good! I hope to get back to some kind of regular […]

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2016 |

Not much for the blog today. Still struggling with issues of pain that limit computer time. First a little humor to start the week off. I loved this meme that was circulating on Facebook. I’m sure we’ve all felt this way and tried to keep on smiling. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I follow several blogs, Writer Unboxed being […]

The Best Thing You Can do For An Author

Posted by mcm0704 on January 4, 2016 |

The main reason I write so many reviews and host authors on my blog is to help my fellow scribes perhaps sell a book or two. Trying to get a new book noticed in the Tsunami that is digital self-publishing is like trying to put the beach back into the ocean one small pail at a […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 18, 2015 |

I found these mushrooms growing by an old stump in my back pasture and thought they were very pretty. With the sun shining on them, it looked as if they had been gilded. I wish I could have captured that shimmer of gold, but pictures I take with my phone never look exactly like the […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 22, 2015 |

There’s an awful lot of fear-mongering going on in the United States and too much of it has settled in Texas. Our new governor parlayed people’s fears into votes, and he continues to play on the fear. I couldn’t believe it when I heard him say that he suspects the summer training exercises by the […]

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2015 |

This post originally appeared in Feb 2012, but the book is still available, and the writing tips are still relevant, so I thought I would share it again. I was so busy with work for the art center, as well as working on my newest book, I didn’t finish reading a book this week for […]

Say “no” to the TransCanada XL Pipeline

Posted by mcm0704 on April 21, 2014 |

Those of you who have been following my blog for some time know that I am against the TransCanada XL Pipeline that is scheduled to open soon. Many of us in Texas fought to keep the pipeline from coming through, but alas, the pipes are already in, just waiting for the green light from Washington […]
