Dana here with a quick post about my writing. Demon Protege is in her final stages of preparation for her release next month. Book cover is under construction and I'm busy filling in plot holes. Editing is occuring simultaneously to smooth out any rough patches. So unlike most road construction projects, Demon Protege is set … Continue reading Hiddy Ho Good Neighbors
Not sure how long ago it was. If I really wanted to be precise with the memory, I'd scroll back through my blog posts and find it as I chronicled a lot of my life's ups and downs here on WordPress for quite a few years, but alas, scrolling through said chronicles is a long … Continue reading Ah, now I remember…
Read a lengthy article via one of my favorite blogs (Ends and Beginnings) not too long ago (click HERE). By the end of the article, my fear, mistrust, and sadness rose to the highest levels they've been since elementary school when the TV mini-series Roots aired (1977) and sparked racial tension at school I was ten years old … Continue reading Another Glimpse Behind the Curtain…
I'm beginning to think my Morning Pages routine has usurped my Blog in terms of where I go to process my life.

And if we take a stroll through the archives, I'd be willing to bet there are at least four other posts with similar times in their titles. Sigh. Since I'm up, … Continue reading 2:33 AM – Deja Vu

It has snowed every trip back with the exception of the one time I came back during a summer to … Continue reading 22 of 40 – It’s Been a Minute
Yeah...so, my "spirit animal" twice or thrice removed made a dramatic appearance this morning in the form of a web dive to the ground just in my peripheral vision as I was coming through a doorway at work. *shudder* It has been several months since the last "blessing" so I suppose I should be somewhat … Continue reading 15 of 40 – The Eye of the Spider
Go here. I've really wandered loose, eh? What has it been, three days in a row of no posts? I wish I could say it was because I was knee deep in my Camp NaNo project or neck deep in editing AT and TOW but alas, I was lost in my own head, swimming through … Continue reading 12 of 40 – Do you trust me?
"If thine own eye offends thee, pluck it out." As spoken by Roddy McDowell in the classic film, The Legend of Hell House.
