Tell us about how you felt from that first exchange.Honestly, I have absolutely NO IDEA who the first person I ever emailed with off-blog was!

12 Things I Learned From Daily Blogging

I made a goal and reached it: I blogged every day for 30 days. It made me a leaner writer: no wasted words. I posted original work, no re-dos. Hubby told me I was defeating the purpose if I did.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I promised my friend I would go to see his production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But I’ve never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show and, aside from some scantily clad cross-dressing, I do NOT know what I’m getting myself into.

What's a Red Cup Got To Do With It?

The new Starbucks holiday cup offends me. No, not my Christian sensibilities, but my creative sensibilities. Its minimalist approach has well been done before... the Hefty red solo cup which has been around since the 1970s. It's boring and lacks originality....more
