Welcome to another weekly blog challenge, hosted by Long and Short Reviews! This week's topic is: One skill I wish I had but don't. There has been only one particular skill I'd love to have--one that I'm in awe of in others. I'd love to be able draw and paint. Anyone who can capture and bring to life a vision on canvas is one I admire. Many have mentioned that if you can return to a particular painting and see something new each time, then the artist is exceptional. John Will
Happy first Wednesday of March, my friends! This week's topic is: Characters who remind me of myself and why. As a voracious reader, I've seen myself as the character in many stories. Yet the most important ones I can recall are a few within my books. I've woven a smidgen of my personality into these women. Is it planned? Nope. There are three that stand out immediately. The other character is not one of my own that I've written. And here they are... The heroine, Brigid O'Nei
Remember the song, "Memories" by Barbra Streisand? It's the first image and thought that popped into my mind when I read the topic for today: My favorite memory and why. I struggled with this one, simply because I've been blessed with so many wonderful and cherished favorites. There is no single one that rules above the rest. Period. Each evokes a special moment in my life. So here are are a few of my favorite memories... 1. My 3rd Birthday. Even at my age, I can vividly reca
In my humble opinion, exercise is a vital ingredient to keep the muse and writer healthy. This week's topic: Types of exercise I enjoy. Did you hear my shout of joy over this topic?

It clears the cobwebs within my mind, helps me plot, and not only is it fabulous for my body, exercise is a tonic for my spirit. 1. Walking. This simple exercise has helped me tremendously with solving plot issue
Books, books, and more books! This week's topic: Books I reread or want to reread. My list is massive on my favorite books and spans a variety of genres. Here is my list (mostly ones I've reread and a couple I'm planning on rereading). I tried to keep it short. ;) Lion of Ireland by Morgan Llywelyn Pillars of the Earth by Kenn Follett The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley Outlander by Diana Gabaldon Hawaii by James Michener Emma by Ja
For this week's challenge, I didn't have to think twice. The topic: My celebrity crushes. Now I'm not going to tell you how many I had as a teenager, since the list from a shy, curly-haired teen would be massive. Seriously! I worshiped these crushes in silent adoration. However, as an adult, there are only two. And in no particular order. Errol Flynn. Need I say anything more? Well I could go on and on. Let me profess that this bad boy actor made my knees weak whenever he ent
If you've read my Winter Newsletter, I stated, "A new year of possibilities beckons!" Yep! This has become my word for 2020, and I'm eager to try something new. Although I'm late in jumping into this challenge, I'm hopping on board the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews. The topic for today is: Best book/movie/TV couples.
