Muse showing off her first 'kill' of the spring! This has been a vacation week, and I've tried really hard to relax. No big push to do laundry or dishes, not stress about the floor being messy. No falling into the 'I should be doing xyz' trap. Just taking deep breaths and relaxing. Today, I … Continue reading Halfway to normal
I should be in bed. However, today's the start of a vacation week. Unless Muse (the cat or the one that helps me write) wakes me up, I don't have an alarm for a week. I was talking with my son tonight, puzzling out something aloud. Two years ago, when we had a player step … Continue reading Unsticking a Pause button
Sidhe Viewpoint, Scotland Sigh. You'd think after a year of COVID, a tumultuous election cycle, and protests I'd have a better perspective on what's big and what's small. That I'd be able to take a deep breath, give thanks to my Goddess that I haven't lost anyone since it all began, and not let small … Continue reading Hand specialist round 2
I'm going to make a confession of sorts here. Writers are, I believe, a strange breed of human. We work alone for the most part. Just us, our thoughts, and a computer screen or notebook.

The forest … Continue reading ‘Inversion of Magic’ sneak peek!

Blastaar woke; sweat poured down his face as his heart raced. The icy finger of fear, accompanied by the stench of death, wrapped around his body. Not again! He sat up on the edge of his bed and cradled his face in his hands. The same dream as before, yet more detailed. Tonight, though, … Continue reading The Murder Hobos – Shore Leave – Episode 10 – The Dreams Begin.
Evening, everyone! It's been chaotic over the last week. The Inauguration, the impeachment, stuff with my hands, my father in law here for a weekend, laptop drama with the son. And two chapters that had been driving me NUTS for weeks! One thing at a time, I suppose. We have a new President, and things … Continue reading Writing again and loving it!
Tiko eased his way down the corridor. Everything about this was wrong. The storm, finding themselves on a sea that reminded him of Theros, this island…all of it. Kruphix, are you behind this? Is there something here I must see? The passage was well lit, and barren of dirt or dust. Strange, given … Continue reading The Murder Hobos – Shore Leave – Episode 9 – What is seen cannot be unseen
Morning, world. Yesterday was one of the scariest days in my adult life. Seeing armed insurrectionists....domestic terrorists...storm into the Capital in an effort to disrupt the certification of an election made my heart sink down into my heels. Seeing so many people whose skin tone matched mine but whose ideals were so far away from … Continue reading Preserving our Republic
