#WriteWed To Blog or Not to Blog?

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about blogs and whether people still read them or comment on them. In fact, lots of big online sites have eliminated the comments feature not because it incited sometimes unpleasant discussions, but because of a lack of discussion.

I wonder whether people still like reading blogs like mine, where I share some fun things, some serious, and of course, some book info. I love books. I love to write them and I love to read them.

I wonder if you’d like to see some different things, so here’s your chance. Let me know what you’d like to see on the blog!

Who’s in charge? You or the cat? #FridayFun

As a cat owner, I can say that I rarely get my way with either of the two cats in our family. However, the two cats in my house sometimes listen to my husband and daughter, but not to me. So sad.

So when I saw this, it was like “Wow.” A cat that does what it’s owner says?

Have a great Friday and weekend!

Filling the Well #WriteWed

If I had to think of my brain as something other than a brain, I would think of it as a well, especially when I am in the midst of writing. It’s a fluid place, ready to accept the stone of an idea and to let the water ripple out to create other ideas. It’s a place where I can draw from it deeply in order to create a story.

Sometimes I feel as if it’s a rush of water that spills from the well when I get so caught up in a story that I can’t stop. That’s a good thing.

But then, inevitably, I feel as if the well has run dry after that rush and that I need to take a step back and let the well fill up again so that I can continue.

I’m sure many writers feel the same way, as if they’ve emptied their brains out on the pages and there’s nothing left inside. That’s when it’s time to take a break.

For me, that means lots of reading and maybe watching a movie. Taking a long shower or walk. Going to the gym and working up a sweat. Cleaning and organizing. There’s something about putting things in place that somehow feels like what I do in a story, putting the pieces away or shifting them until it feels right.

Whether you’re a writer or reader, I’d love to hear what you do in order to fill your well.

#ThrowbackThursday Philadelphia Flower Show

Fate has been conspiring to keep Spring from me! Snow and cold for a good chunk of March, including on the day when I was supposed to go to the Philadelphia Flower Show. I was major league bummed that I was unable to go for the first time in many many years. 🙁 It was especially tough since the theme was Holland and one of my fav things about spring is seeing all the tulips, hyacinths, crocuses, daffodils, and other bulbs come up!

Today’s Throwback is to the 2012 Philly Flower Show.
