I’ve done this tagged meme before, but since my favorites list is ever-changing, I thought I’d do it again. List 10 books that have stayed with you long after you read them. Don't think too much about the exercise. Be spontaneous. You’re supposed to tag other people here. I don't tag people. Just participate if … Continue reading Books that Stay
Writing Process Blog Tour: I, again, blame Sara.
My friend Sara Crawford (author of The 30 Day Writing Challenge), tagged me in the Writing Process Blog Tour. Because she tends to be able to bend me to her will with the alluring awkwardness of her puppy dog stare, I’m participating. Aren’t you excited? I sure am.

The Spark, the Shade, and a Mutant
I have a gift. If someone hands me a lump of muddy rock, I see a galaxy of diamonds in my hand, shining and revolving and shattering through the limitations left behind by the earth that birthed a lump of sullied mineral.

That’s kind of … Continue reading Breaking Fences
The Folklore in the Water
I once worked with a beautiful girl from Africa. She was one of the smartest girls I've ever met, as well as stunning. Her long, thin body was punctuated with a round face and happy eyes.
