The Ultimate Planner Crash and Burn

The Ultimate Planner Crash and Burn

I had started 2018 by purchasing one of those annual goal setting workbooks and dutifully went through, completing the entire thing. I had deadlines and goals and an action plan and I put everything in my planner with pretty stickers and glitter and washi. I was going to knock 2018 outta the park!! Looking back at my major goals, I didn’t get one damn thing done. Not one. There are several reasons for this. Some because life happened. But as…

Where Did the Words Go?

Where Did the Words Go?

It’s been awhile. A long, long while since I updated my blog. A lot has happened since the fall of last year but still, I should have been more on top of things on the blog. Especially because I love blogging. It’s how I stared this whole journey. And I’ve missed it–blogging. I know that blogging is seen by some as old-school, now.

Now that Crimson is closed, Simon & Shuster runs sales/promos and I don’t necessarily know when that is happening (like this sale!). I happened to run across it by accident when I was getting some paperbacks for a book signing in October, in Liverpool, New York….

A Recent By the Numbers Look at American Voters & My Thoughts

A Recent By the Numbers Look at American Voters & My Thoughts

I enjoy politics (sometimes, but not lately) but what I like more are polls. Polls, numbers, stats they’re my jam. I don’t know why, cause I hate math. But anyway the newest Quinnipiac poll has fascinated me with it’s most recent findings. Talk about seeing by the numbers (which are real, not fake news as some might suggest) how divided this country is. Yikes. So, let’s look at the latest polls from Quinnipiac University. They’ve a pretty decent polling history,…
