It’s official

Well, my little quiz has ended, and the votes have been counted (hanging chads included.) I guess I am not the only writer in the world not to own a laptop, but pretty close. 1 out of 5 shared my predicament. *sigh* I suppose I shouldn’t complain. Our big, clunky Dell works fine. True, Microsoft…

I’m an Aunt/Mom!

I know this is not writing related, but I am just so excited. Early this morning, my twin sister had her first baby. A boy named Karl. Isn’t he a cutie pie? I say that I am an Aunt/Mom, because, as twins, my sister and I have the same DNA. So, technically I am his…

Musings on my family

Quer-o-matic 2000

This weekend, I made my first attempt at writing out my query letter. Well, technically it wasn’t my very first attempt. I have been scribbling–and I mean scribbling–down sentences in my notebook. I even wrote one draft there. But, until this weekend, I had yet to get on down on Word. Well, now I do,…

. . . never mind

Upon second glance, a day later, I realized that the ocean template was too busy and made it a bit hard to read. So, I changed it back.*shrugs*My blog is still in a transition stage.
