My birthday…

This may be a surprise but I hate my birthday--always have. Even as a little girl, I hated it. It doesn't help that we never really celebrated birthdays...except with my grandparents.

Book Review: Work in Progress by Staci Hart

   This is the fourth or fifth book of Hart's that I've read. I absolutely love her writing. This book give a new twist to the author/book blogger relationship. I did have a few reservations while reading beginning with Amelia's shyness disorder and lack of socialization issues. She has a circle of friends yet none …

Her imagination can only get her so far? 

Writing & Panic attacks

I am trying to figure out why I feel a tightening in my stomach every time I sit down to write. Or I will draw complete blanks. I will completely forget the scene I was about to write. I can't come up with another scene....I haven't been able to clearly formulate a scene for days. …
