I am gradually finding a balance, but I definitely have dry spells until I finally force myself to write anything just to get started again. Once I get started and find a rhythm it is easier to keep going.(less)

I usually have an end point for the story but not the path on how to get there. I follow my characters and fill in situations that nudge them towards the goal but I do get surprised at what happens that fits the story.(less)

March 2020 - Spring and St. Patrick's Day

It is the middle of March and we are experiencing a rainy spell this week. Our weather has not been bad this winter, we’ve gotten some rain, mixed in with sunshine. Our hills are very green with all of the new vegetation and I see more wild flower blooming each week, along our trail and the highways. On the clear days, I notice the flowers, and buds and blossoms on trees as plant life soaks up the Read more of this blog post »

Socrates
“The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”
Socrates
