Yup, I’m working on a deadline and I’m really aware that it’s fast approaching. (Seriously, is there some dial that gives editors the ability to make clocks work faster? Because I need it cranked to ultra-slow.) So while I’m hiding away in my cave (wondering why I am not renting […]

Busy writing, so here are pretty pictures

Yay, I get to blog because I finished editing two chapters of Private Property today. Those goals I set are working, thanks to Margie Lawson’s Defeat Self-Defeating Behaviors. (I highly recommend it!) (People in the Rockies – or Buffalo – who normally get dumped on a lot worse should feel […]
