Elizabeth Wurtzel, and How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb?

There are two Pat Benatar songs stuck in my head right now, both from the same album, "Tropico," which is my favorite Pat Benatar album. I had a copy of "Tropico" way back in the day, bought from the local music store. It was scratched, right out of the sleeve. Couldn't return it. So I… Continue reading Elizabeth Wurtzel, and How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb?

A Subtle Shift in the Light

There are, I believe, pivotal moments in every life. This idea is one that has been much explored in literature, philosophy, art. What a blessing it is, I think, to be gifted with self-awareness in such moments, to be able to feel the subtle shift in the energy of the universe. Of course, sometimes that… Continue reading A Subtle Shift in the Light

Gremlins

I just found so many mistakes in a manuscript that I already corrected and published, that it's making my head spin. I'm a good writer. My grammar skills are average. But I've got to step it up in the proof-reading department. It's sloppy. In one sentence I found the words "Shup up" instead of "Shut… Continue reading Gremlins

Danielle Steel

Here's a great write up/interview of author Danielle Steel at Glamour mag. How has Steel written 179 books? She writes/works twenty to twenty-two hours a day. If that sounds like b.s. to you, you might not be a writer, or at least not one who knows what it's like to lose yourself in the story,… Continue reading Danielle Steel

Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan

The rain has been seemingly incessant. It was ingrained in me throughout my youth not to be a "complainer." However, seeing as how I am now firmly into my middle age, I am, on occasion, given to indulging myself in a bit of complaining and I will tell you, I think I've had it with… Continue reading Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan
