“Write stories that insist on being continued beyond the last paragraph.”

…to decide!

There are so many cute blog themes out there. If, by chance, you have checked my blog the last few days, you may have come away dizzy because every day I have tried a new look.

Brenda has let me know, without hesitation, which ones she likes and which one she doesn’t.
Michelle says they are all cool. It’s up to me. She’s a Gemini so relates well to my ever changing Libra mind.
Denise is away at RWA Nationals in San Francisco but, if she was here, would tell me to decide and quit messing around. (Take pics, girlfriend, I am so jealous!)

Every one of them has their positives and negatives, but it is fun trying different things.

I just wish I could find what works for me. My next project is learning how to make headers.

Did I tell you we’re having a heat wave here in North Texas? 100 plus heat for several days now. I heard 15, but what do I know? I am busy playing. Inside. Where it is cool.

Okay, back to work. When I got stuck with my plotting, my writing suffered. Even blogging feels stilted when you don’t do it on a regular basis. I have noticed that not everyone blogs as much. That makes me sad even though I don’t get to blog read and surf as much as I used to. My favorite ones that used to have readerships of 100-200 are now down to 40-50.

I have worked through a bit of the problem, so have to get back to writing and see where it goes.

Day-um! I knew I should have never set those goals! And somebody put them on the calendar!

What’s a girl to do?

Get her butt back in gear, that’s what.

But before I do, here’s some wishful thinking:

Hey, it’s my life, I can dream! It may be I like this picture so much right now because I am listening to Kokomo by the Beach Boys as I write this.

…for my new blog.

Just wanted to try something different. Like trying on a new outfit or a new pair of shoes. You just want an updated look.

May not keep this particular one, but willl try it on for a few days. I am having fun learning how to put it together but have some more work to do on the sidebar. What I can’t figure out, I usually bug Michelle.

Let me know what you think about it!

Northeast Texas has had quite a heat wave lately. And, according to the weather, there is no reprieve in sight as we are expecting over 100 degree weather for a week or so.

Sat outside on the patio today and stayed a tad bit longer than I should have. Now my legs and arms are a bright shade of red. Hopefully will tan and not peel.

Need to think about something for dinner as I have been playing around today and not doing anything serious except for some laundry.

…I have always wanted to visit Ireland and Scotland!!!

You Belong in Dublin

Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.
You’re the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl… or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.
