You know the only drawback to living in a house full of morbid remains and similar artwork and movie posters etc? Then you have to dust all that stuff. I’m sneezing right now ’cause I had the day off (sort of ) and decided to clean the movie room. Someday I might want to have friends over, after all and everything has (had) like an inch (not literally) of dust on it. I hear my G’ma’s voice again in my head about my housekeeping and I’m remembering that poem about Agatha Morley.

My writing collects dust, too. All of my printed pieces that have been critqued are in different baskets and boxes and on various surfaces. My “In Our Tribe” is collecting metaphorical dust ’cause I haven’t touched it in days. Maybe I should be doing that instead of arm wrestling dust bunnies and losing. =]

New story

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

I started a new story the other day despite the fact that a fellow author warned me about working on too many things at once. Well, I’ve actually stopped working on my current project. That’s bad, huh? The more I looked at the story (In Our Tribe – working title), the more it seemed like the story wasn’t finished but needed an additional section (Part 3) and I didn’t have a great idea of how to wrap the story up.

So, anyway, I started something new. But this time I’m going to map out the story first. I’ve never done that before. And it’s a ghost story which to me, kinda begs to be more organic rather than outlined. But I don’t want to wind up in the middle of the story again and not know what the hay is gonna happen next.  We’ll see what the scribblers think about it. ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^

Thanks, Dharma!!!!

  1. A huge thanks to my brainy friend, Dharma. She designed this entire website and I couldn’t be more thrilled! If anyone is thinking about getting a website together, contact me for Dharma’s info. As you can see, she’s very creative, and skilled at html, PHP, FTP and other computerly acronyms. There is no way I could have done anything this awesome on my own.

I was thinking about what I would say in my first official blogpost. I remembered when I was in eighth grade and about to head off to the graduation dance. The school had printed yearbooks and there was a section at the back for autographs. My grandma said, “Now don’t write anything silly because it will be around forever.” I thought this very wise advice and proceeded to sign my friends’ yearbooks as “Tina the Great”. I’ve been mildly embarrassed over the years when I think about that. So I imagine my blogging will be about the same. I’ll post something regretable and it will be there forever.
