BLOGAVERSARY 3.0!!!

Three years. Three years of obsessions, pop culture addictions, and enough lengthy librettos about English songstress’ and fictional characters to launch the expression “fangirl” onto an entirely different level. What can I say, other than, thank you. Thank you all for your support and your friendship, for coming back again and again, encouraging me and…

Dreaming With the Television On

He waited until the opportune moment to step out of the bright blue box, cautiously examining the surrounding thingamabobs and thingamajigs, before extracting the sonic screwdriver from his top left pocket. The mechanism was his favorite little watchamacallit and proved to be the most reliable. At least, most of the time. Curiously, it seemed to…

I’ve posted Chapter 1 of A Much Needed Push in The Writer’s Room. You’ll find it under ‘FanFiction.’ Teaser      Upon my arrival to the diner, my eyes always frantically search for her, for my Bella. It seems like ages until she spots me at my usual table, though it could hardly be more than…

The Writer’s Room

You must keep sending work out. You must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you’re working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success – but only if you persist. -Isaac Asimov…

I Can Quote That 2!

I’m the queen of the quotes! Here we are once again, quoting movies. I just can’t help myself. You know, the last time we found ourselves in this position (I Can Quote That!: 1st Edition), I found the need to bring up my love of cheesy movies lines “Hold on tight, Spider Monkey” and my…

Press Play Friday: The Mitch Hansen Band

“Stupid shiny Volvo owner, I’m so glad to see you here.” This week we saw what happened when Supernatural and Twilight combined. It was amazing, let’s face it. Yet, this wasn’t the first time Twilight fused with another one of my favorite things. If I told you that there was a band  – an awesome…
