It's 2018. I'm doing NaNoWriMo again. Lord help us all. For those who haven't been following my blog since November 2014 (so basically if you're not my mom or my sister), this is the second time I'm attempting NaNoWriMo which stands for National Novel Writing Month. The good news is, I finished the challenge in … Continue reading NaNoWriMo 2018
It's been a while since I've posted on here. It's certainly not because I don't have anything to say. I've always got something to say. But right now a lot of the things I want to say are either too personal and go into a journal or have to do with things that may be … Continue reading I’m writing…I’m just not writing here.
I was hoping to put together a list of my favorite reads from 2016, but sadly I didn't do a great job of keeping track of all of these - and I get them in all different formats - through Amazon, Audible, library, Overdrive (electronic library), borrowing from friends and now Kindle, and so with … Continue reading A few good books from 2016
If you've been following along you know I've been making my way through the Harry Potter books for the last month or so. Right now I'm on book 5...and I'm throwing in the towel. I'm weak. I know this! I have all the time in the world to read these books, but my heart … Continue reading Throwing in the towel with these Harry Potter books
This isn't a political post so don't get your panties in a bunch. It's really just a post full of updates, but one of the updates is that, yes, I feel like I'm experiencing a political hangover right now. Five hours of sleep and waking up at 3:45 from hot flashes and checking to see … Continue reading Oh did something big happen today?
Over the last couple weeks, I've been writing and editing and hemming and hawing over this rough draft of a novel that I started two years ago. Most of the time, it's rough going. It's only fulfilling when I look back on what I've accomplished, but the act of it is rough. Even still, the … Continue reading The weird thing about writing…
It's Thursday, which means I have my ninth round of chemo tomorrow. Already? Yes, already, darn it. Some good weeks creep by and I'm happy for the pace. This good week? It went by way too quickly. Which, in the grand scheme of things is technically good...weeks going by faster means I'm that much closer … Continue reading #amdoingallthethings
I have four rounds of chemo left. Which is awesome because it means I have less than eight weeks left. We're getting there! And it means that I can look back at my progress so far...my JOURNEY (barf, gag), if you will, with a little bit more hindsight. And this week, even though it was … Continue reading Arguably the most successful bad week so far.
First off, take a good thirty minutes and go read this article on the current state of artificial intelligence. You good? Okay, well I'll skim it for you, regardless. A little background before we get into the real issue. First off, I love hearing dooms-day theories. No, I don't want the end of the … Continue reading Artificial intelligence? Maybe let’s not.
This week has been pretty low key and there's not much to report, but I thought I'd share a little something before I "go into battle" tomorrow. So here are the random things going on in my life, at current. 10,000 steps...BOOYEAH! Last Saturday, I hit 10,000 steps for the first time since I … Continue reading Checking in…
