The Saga of Freewriting — Ten Minutes and Counting!


Freewriting again today. What is the subject? Truly the first thing coming into my mind. For just a few years, I’ve worked on a manuscript, “Chattahoochee Child.” At first, there wasn’t a plot. Only characters. Now, I have the plot although I keep procrastinating about it. Here goes. The story is placed along the coastContinue reading “The Saga of Freewriting — Ten Minutes and Counting!”

Friday Reflections — Enough Said!


Dearest Readers: Late autumn always depresses me when the sun sets so early and darkness blankets the skies, much…much too early. I enjoy evenings where I enjoy the sun setting later.

Give Me Wings to Fly…


Today appeared to be a good day. After paying the monthly bills, I settled down, thankful that life was going my way – finally.

Mother Nature…Chilling Breezes…and the Good Ole Boys!


Dearest Readers: Someone on Facebook mentioned a freewriting site that is private, so here I am typing away. I suppose it could be referred to as ‘freewriting,’ the infamous writing tasks that writers do to get the wheels in motion so they can write. I am only one of those writers. At times, I struggleContinue reading “Mother Nature…Chilling Breezes…and the Good Ole Boys!”
