Reasons why I’d rather write

See the extended excerpt I posted on Facebook from Royally Flushed >>> (Something I didn’t post to WordPress before- only on Facebook for the past few months.) As I was lying awake one night, I had a thought. When I was in middle and high school, I dreamed of becoming just like Kelly Clarkson. I […]

The belated Halloween post

It is nearly 11 p.m. my time as I’m writing this, so this will probably be too late to reach the Monday Blogs page on Twitter, where they retweet me regularly. But it is Halloween and I had other preparations, like giving candy out to children. As I’m listening to one of my favorite Imelda […]
