Happy Holidays!

I hope every one has a very Merry Christmas! May we all find peace and happiness in this holiday season.

As this year comes to a close, I'm thinking of all the unfinished projects I plan to complete in 2006 which didn't get done this year. I've also begun a new children's story for my Adventure's of Angel series and I have two erotica romances and a two book thriller in the beginning stages. I've also been busy writing a series of articles which I'll start posting in January.

I'm hoping that 2006 will be more productive and prosperous!

Catching Up

Wow! I can't believe almost two months have passed since I last posted. I returned home to New Jersey on November 5 after 'visiting' my daughter in Norfolk, VA for almost three months. When I went to VA on August 11 to babysit my grandson Gabriel for two weeks before he began kindergarten, I never dreamed that my two week 'visit' would turn into an almost three month stay.

My daughter is a Marine so I'm accustomed to her needing me to stay with Gabe from time to time. Since he'd be starting kindergarten at the end of August, she'd enrolled him in the school's before and after school care program, but for the last two weeks of August the program closes. Since kindergarten is a monumental event, he wanted me to be there for his first day and I would have it no other way. I decided instead of returning home I'd stay a couple of more weeks and celebrate his fifth birthday in September and then go home. But that didn't happen.

My daughter had to attend a Corporal's course for two weeks so I stayed on. When I finally was getting ready to leave, she was notified that because she'd gotten a raise, she had to move since she was over the income level for her apartment complex. She had thirty days to find a new apartment. We found a beautiful one in a week. This apartment is not income controlled and is close to the ocean in Virginia Beach. I helped her move and get settled in while battling a nasty flu bug that lasted almost six weeks.

While in Virginia my laptop died, my daughter's computer had to be reformatted, and my index page on my website was hacked and had to be redone. I did manage to write one story and received a contract for it. I also wrote some poetry and began a couple of other stories. My grandson wants me to write a story about him so this winter I'll be writing a book especially for and about Gabe. He tells me that when he grows up he wants to be a writer like 'Amma'. He all ready has a love for books and reading.

All in all, I wouldn't trade a minute of the time I got to spend with Gabe. Being with him always helps me to remember how short life really is and to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures. I was there to cheer him on as he played soccer on his school's team for the first time, had a blast going trick or treating, to Zoo Boo and to Kings Dominion. But the best times were just being with him knowing that I was the center of his world. Time moves too fast and the day will come too soon when his friends and activities will replace 'Amma's' prominent position in his life. I'm going to enjoy and treasure every minute of these 'visits' for as long as I can. There's nothing better than being a grandmother.

More Delays

Yesterday was a nightmare! I intended to finish at least one of the stories. It was just about finished and only needed some editing and finishing touches. As luck would have it, though, when I turned on the computer it wouldn't let me access anything, then totally melted down. By the time everything was re-installed and I put the disk in, I realized I hadn't backed up all of my previous work on the story. Hopefully I'll be able to complete it this weekend. I don't know if I'm more upset at the computer or with myself for not backing it up.

I had hoped to get my two stories finished, but as luck would have it, my index page to my website disappeared and I spent a day and a half uploading it. Tonight I intend to finish one of the stories. In the near future I'll be posting some excerpts of my works.

Hello! This is my first posting to my blog. I've thought about starting one for quite some time, but thought it would take too long to set up and maintain. If I'd known it was this easy I would have done it a long time ago. My postings will mainly be about my writing days, but then I do like to ramble at times, so anything is possible.

A little about me: I've been writing for most of my life and had my first novel published in 1998. Since then I've had several novels, short stories, children's books, articles and poems published. I am a firm believer in following one's dreams. I try to write something everyday and on the days I can't, I get antsy because I've always got an idea floating around. My office is filled with scraps of paper for ideas. I never run out of ideas and I've never experienced writer's block. I usually have two or three projects going at once so maybe that's what keeps writer's block from me.

Well, this is all I have time for today. I'm working on two short stories and the muse is calling me!
