Dear @Pink

WOW.   What a week its been, huh?   I guess you know some folks got upset by your tweet advocating for the change of nature of the president.  It seems you also got pretty offended at the idea that people thought you voted for him.  In fact, it looks like you have surmised that…

Hey There New People

I am not sure how you found me, but pull up, stay a while.  I don’t know if I have what you are looking for but I am pretty sure you will find something you didn’t expect.  (For real tho…HAHAHA) You can read the “about” or dig around in the topics but here’s a quick…

Soldiers, Contractors and the Killing Of Hope

I typically post this stuff elsewhere but this is something I couldn’t get off my mind since the Op Ed from Erik Prince.   Some segments of our society would like you to think that sending mercenaries into Afghanistan equates to privately funded space exploration.  They would be wrong.  The continued trickle of soldiers and…

WE HOWL

We Howl We Roar We shake the trees in thunderous delight We Laugh We Sing We preach from a top the hill all we wish to get right  And hobble back to our tiny place The dark and damp quiet place For shrinking back behind the face We Dream We Laugh We leap above the…

Ireland, Politics and the feeling of Home

Is it possible for a place to call to you? To leave such an indelible imprint in your soul that you choke back tears just thinking about it? #askingforafriend I’m not sure exactly when it happened but I was sucked in by the smell of it. The mist, the grass, the peat smoke, the green…

Organize, ya’ll!

Organizing for the new year? I know, it seems like it’s a cliche, doesn’t it?  All the stores use January to put organizing items on sale but pump the breaks a second. Don’t buy immediately, sort and donate first. Also cliché you say?  Well, I’m here to tell you that most Americans have TOO MUCH…

Intentions, yo!

Hey ya’ll!  It’s that time of year again. 2016 can suck it, amirite? While I did get to do a lot of cool things, one thing that did not happen was finding time in 2016 for all my intentions, I am keeping it simple: 2017 is all about ME. I can already hear you saying “she will…

Please VOTE Today

I have worked in politics for many years.  I used to say, “Please vote, I don’t care who you vote for, but please just vote.” This year is a lot different, they advocate policies that could kill my children. I do want you to just vote but I can’t say I don’t care any more…

Always a Little Wonky

This week’s got me like: When I started trying to narrow down exactly what it was, my head kept correcting me.  I said “WOW, what a week!” and my head went “You mean, what a month, what a year, what a past few years.” This is exactly why I have self-esteem issues.  Let’s ignore for…

Happy Friday!

It’s been a long damn week.  Here is a cat picture from Angus.  🙂      

Working on a Series

This month my screenwriting course had us work on a variety of episodic and serial writing projects.  This included not only TV, but also a web series, video games and comics.  Having come to this course as a novelist, I never really considered writing on a show.  I am humbled and amazed at the amount…
