I know a lot of authors say to push through it, but for me, if the words aren't coming and the story isn't flowing, I figure that's my brain telling me it needs a break. I turn off the computer, go outside (I know! Gasp!), walk my dogs, play some Apples to Apples with my kids. The only time I can't do this is when I have a deadline, but still, sometimes even a short 30 minute break can help.(less)

I hadn’t seen him in nearly two years. The last time was difficult. I had to leave his place before he even touched me. He apologized, but that’s how it had to be, and I tried to understand.


Yesterday I stopped by randomly. I’ve been in a lot of pain, and needed to know if his touch would help. I haven’t been able to sleep. My stress level is through the roof, and I needed… someth...

"Valarie Savage Kinney's series, Secrets of Windy Springs goes from strength to strength. This, the third instalment, is the best one yet. I gave the first two, five stars, so this should definitely be a six-star book.

"Excellent Read

The third in the Secrets of Windy Springs series does not disappoint! The fantasy genre is not one I typically read, but I am totally invested in these characters and absolutely loved this book. I could not put it down! I truly hope..." Read more of this review »

Aussie Readers: An additional Annual Challenge for 2018 - A-Z 539 310 14 hours, 20 min ago  
Audrey Niffenegger
“Long ago, men went to sea, and women waited for them, standing on the edge of the water, scanning the horizon for the tiny ship. Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow and transparent as glass. Through each moment I can see infinite moments lined up, waiting. Why has he gone where I cannot follow?”
Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler's Wife

Jane Austen
“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Neil Gaiman
“Sleep my little baby-oh
Sleep until you waken
When you wake you'll see the world
If I'm not mistaken...

Kiss a lover
Dance a measure,
Find your name
And buried treasure...

Face your life
Its pain,
Its pleasure,
Leave no path untaken.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
