What's in a Line?

What is the best line you’ve ever heard?

The only reason I ask, is I heard something that I wish I had written. There is a new movie coming out or maybe it’s already out. (I have a tendency to see new movies, when they are no longer new. I gotta get better at that.) Anyway, the young girl is telling the guy basically he shouldn’t fall in love with her because she’s like a grenade. And he says “it would be an honor to be hurt by you.” Is that not one of the most awesome lines ever?

Look up...

I went running today. Okay, so maybe it was not the full on run that most ‘real’ runners do, but in my mind, I was like a gazelle. Granted, a feeble, old gazelle, with a sore knee, but nevertheless, I was doing my thing. Anyway, usually I get out there and I start off well. I’m in a zone, iPod shuffling and Lenny Kravitz is singing about me, his American Woman and I’m chugging along. About five minutes into it, I’m usually starting to feel something hurting (my lungs, my knees, my entire body…I’m so out of shape). But today, was a little different.

Laugh a Little

My Color Me Rad cornstarch hair color!

Okay, so this morning I saw a post on Facebook from Lindsay Harper, another 5 Prince Publishing author, who has a book coming out in two days by the way (How to Have an Amicable Divorce). She was asking about life long ambitions and basically what’s on your bucket list. Well, I have to admit, getting my book published was definitely on my bucket list. But, recently, I checked off another entry on my list.

Returning to Social Media

Okay, so you’ll need to bear with me. This is my first blog. I’m sure years from now, I’ll look back at this and wonder, who wrote this? At least, I hope I have that insight and chance years from now. I have to admit. I’m a little intimidated by social media. I pretty much shut down from it about six years ago with a plan to focus all of my writing time on finishing my book. Well, now that I’ve finished it, (HALLELUJAH!) I realized, and I’ve also been advised by some very wise people, a really great way to let people know about the book (and that it’s being published - Snoopy dance!) and for readers to know more about me, is to go back to social media. Writing a blog. Hmm, not too daunting right? Of course, social media has changed more than a little bit in the six years I’ve been away. I probably should have stayed on so I would have a better clue of what I’m doing. (Insert an old saying here about hindsight being 20/20.) Yeah, well, I’m learning. Slowly, but I’m getting there.
