Rememberlutions 2015

Last year I saw an article on Buzzfeed about rememberlutions jars. Instead of making a resolution for the new year, you write down all the good things that happen throughout and place them in a jar to look at when the year ends.

I did mine for all my writing stuff. It's a good thing, because my memory is not cooperating as I try to recap the year. It's all, let's remember the last five minutes in vague detail and panic about how we have a car payment now! Thanks, brain. My Facebook feed is little help because it's mostly how my hair changed in the last six months (a lot).

I made my rememberlutions jar out of a mason jar I bought at Michael's, some of that color-your-own jar paint, some glitter nail polish and some crap velum stickers that obviously peeled. Some of the 'memberlutions stuck at the bottom because for some reason, the paint remains sticky down there.
My hand doesn't fit in the hole, so getting them out was a trick. #CraftFail

So let's look …

Merry Christmas!

Warmest wishes from me and mine to you and yours!

Happy Holidays!

“When you lose someone, you get used to living day to day without them. But you’ll never get used to the “10 second heartbreak.” That’s the time it takes to wake to full consciousness each day and remember…” ― Nina Guilbeau

I've started and stopped this post a dozen times. Maybe more. Or maybe I'm exaggerating. I'm good at that.

You can't possibly imagine the number of times in the last couple of weeks I've thought, I miss my dad. Too many.

I didn't want this to be a sad post, because birthday sadness isn't fun. So instead, I thought back to a bunch of happy memories. And I remembered this.

When I was in high school, you ran over a rabbit's nest while mowing. It had three baby rabbits inside. One got away. But you were worried the dogs might find the other two before the mom could move them. They had fur, and their eyes were open. They just needed someone to feed them a while longer before they could go their own way. So you brought them in and gave the…

That Old Familiar Feeling

It should be familiar, anyhow. I've finished books. Lots of them (which, a couple of years ago, seemed impossible). I'm this close (--) to finishing Her Heart's Desire, the sequel to Her Heart's Surrender. Yes, more Vikings!
I know what has to happen. I'd like to get at least 2,000 more words out of it, but I'm not sure I will. At any rate, I'll take whatever comes from the ending. It's going to be a good one.
I hadn't really planned to finish Her Heart's Desire this month. I just finished my contemporary romance novella, Marry Me Again, Cowboy, in September (pre-order Cowboys Forever & it will be delivered November 30 to your device. Plug!) and my Regency romance novella, A Duke Worth His Salt, in October. The plan was to take a little time, recover from rushing, and let the words come gradually.
They did not cooperate. And I have a raging case of tendinitis in my wrist and thumb to show for it. And a serious case of eye strain--I've re…

Guest Post & Book Feature - The Christmas Bridge by Elyse Douglas

Snookie was a little girl who lived down the block from us.  She was all elbows, floppy feet and tangled blonde hair.  It was easy to get lost in her moonstone eyes whenever she talked about her boyfriend, little Frankie, or about her cat, White Toe, or about Christmas and Christmas cookies—especially Christmas cookies.  Snookie had an endless curiously about life and at 8-years old, she knew, without any doubt, she wanted to be a writer. “I’m going to write great big books,” she said, her arms extended wide in either direction.  “And they’re all going to be about Christmas.” “That’s silly,” I said.  “Christmas only comes once a year.  What will you write about the rest of the year?” Snookie thought about this, while she played with a tangled blonde curl.  “Cookies,” she said. And so Snookie went on a tear, gathering Christmas cookie recipes.  She roamed the neighborhood, going house to house, pestering every girl, single woman and housewife, begging them for their favorite recipe f…
