    Thanks PugofCrydee! Us writers are a needy bunch. We need to hear sometimes that we're not just putting out junk because that's what it feels like often while we're putting together a story. You'd be surprised at how many people thought they weren't authors until they started putting their...

    What a dilemma...lol. I really want to share it here. Now I wish I wrote under a pen name! Funny thing is he says he has to now read my other two but I only have one other book. But the title kind of sounds like it's two stories so I guess that threw him off.

    Received my first feedback (via email) on my second novel this morning and it was a doozy. Probably, the best comment I've ever gotten to date since publishing my first book in 2019. Thought I'd share the good words: "I just finished (sorry guys, I never mention the name of my book titles...

    I'm honestly kind of at a loss where that's concerned. I've been vaccinated fully but where I am there's still partial mask mandates depending on where you go. I still wear mine everywhere but have recently started pulling it down under my nose at times when there's nobody around. I feel like...

    Feeling accomplished! I just finished writing my second novel and my publisher sent a finished copy of my book cover. It should be in print within a few weeks. I've even started on my third which will be a collection of four short stories. 😁

    What do you desire - in pictures

    It's only $499 USD so purchasing is no problem. Now to decide if it would be one of those spur of the moment buys that winds up gathering dust or if I will really learn to play the thing. My brother is quite a good guitar player so I'd love to learn, myself. Thanks for the info!

    What's the specific model name of that black guitar? I don't even know how to play but I swear if I had that guitar, I'd learn.

    Now That You've Been Fully Vaccinated...

    I've definitely gotten used to wearing a mask now. And you're right, it does seem to reduce other illnesses. I also usually get at least one cold per year but haven't been sick once in over a year now (I just realized this as I was reading your response)!

    Now That You've Been Fully Vaccinated...

    ... or are about to become fully vaccinated, how do you feel about things returning back to normal? I know we haven't returned back to normal yet and, who knows, we might not for a while now but how do you feel about it if/when we do? I feel a little guilty in saying I've somewhat come to...

    The boy is me taking time to talk my friends out of bad decisions just to watch them make bad choices immediately after. 😄

    How are you feeling?

    Getting ready for a Zoom meeting that I VOLUNTEERED to be a part of a few days ago. It will start in about an hour and it looks like it's going to be interactive where I can't just sit and listen. I don't know why I do things like this to myself as I knew I was going to regret it when the time...

    How are you feeling?

    Most likely. My friend is a bibliophile so books probably show up as ads for her often.

    How are you feeling?

    Yes. It was published in September of 2019. I'm finishing up a second which has taken me about a year longer to write than I anticipated.

    How are you feeling?

    My book showed up on MSN's home page as an advert. It wasn't me who triggered it and I don't know how it happened. Must be somebody out there is promoting it. A friend of mine saw it and sent me the screenshot. It really picked up my spirits and made my day.
