I recently took on a big deal HR job, and it's been harder to write (plus a two hour a day commute hasn't helped). But the block appears to be lifting... Stephen King suggests writing 1,000 words a day, and that is great advice, but hard to make happen when you have a day job.(less)

I learn so much from the readers, and even the critics can be incredibly constructive and helpful. It is amazing to me that a reader would spend the time with one of my books, and more of an honor than just about anything else I could ever imagine.(less)

“Life can be amazing, so there’s no reason to check out early.”
Kimberly Vargas, Gumbeaux

“Laissez les bon temps rouler means “Let the good times roll.” It’s the unofficial slogan of a place that’s a fondue pot full of community, cuisine, architecture, art, nature, and magic.”
Kimberly Vargas, Gumbeaux

“What I’m realizing is that all people are basically the same. Most of them just seem to try and do the best they can with what they have. Maybe there are no bad people and no good people, either. There are only people with their own agendas, and people are basically okay with each other until their agendas intersect, creating an impasse.”
Kimberly Vargas, Gumbeaux
