Okay, I'm over on another blog site, editorunleashed, and trying to figure out how to link. This is as far as I've gotten. Ha.

Enie, Meme... Here's my answers, then your turn!

1. It is your lucky day what are you going to do?Ride a horse, flirt with my husband, give away money, and take a nap.
2. What was the game you played as a child that you almost always or always did win? Dodge ball. I was very agile and quick. Now if I could just translate that into writing I might do okay.

3. You get to meet anyone from the past or present who will it be? Vincent Van Gogh, I'd love to learn what really went on in that magnificently creative, tortured mind.

4. When you relax what is it that you do? See #1

5. What is your favorite number? kazillion

6. What was the name of your favorite childhood toy? the great outdoors

7. If you could name the next fashion fade/craze what would it be? I'd go retro-no bra, sweats, thick socks, and messy hair.

The Technical Stuff

Okay, here I am, a writer, trying to reach out to other like minded people. Problem is I'm computer-wise about a first grader. I can write a post on here, but I have no idea how to link with other blogs I enjoy, or how to let people know I've added something new. Does this make me a failure in the 21st century of writers? Will I be doomed to never progressing beyond the elementary level? Is anyone out there? Help?
Please, and thank you.

Staying focused

So, now I have two books going and need to decide which one to concentrate on. How do you do it? First one character talks to me and right in the middle of an exciting exchange a character from the other book will butt in. If anyone has suggestions for keeping one's nose to the grindstone and ignoring all the other ideas bouncing around in your head let me know. Until then? Maybe I will write a scene where the character is tied up and gagged. This will free me up to concentrate and focus. Hmm, wonder what kind of rope I should use?

Name A Horse Novel

Bought a horse last week and I need to think of a barn name for him. Perhaps you can help? His registered name is Country Wild. He's a tall, skinny thoroughbred off the track about a year, and totally not what I was looking for. Except for his mind. He has the best attitude and the calmest disposition of any TB I've ever known. He actually stands when I ask him to, goes when I want him to, and whoas when it's my idea. I'd thought I was too old for a ex-race horse, so it's good to know there's at least one more face in the wind, get up and gallop dream chaser in my life.

Maybe I'll quit working on my mystery for awhile and write about an over fifty, bad backed writer finding the one horse on which she can fulfill her dream of riding in the local Hunters Division of the Steeplechase before she turns sixty. She lives in a small town in the country and is experiencing writer's procrastination. Browsing instead of working she stumbles upon this horse. The horse's name could be Novel...

The Day After

This is the day after St. Patrick's day, the day after my father-in-law's birthday, he's 91, the day after the anniversary of my Mother-in-law's death, the day after yesterday. I guess we can always say it is the day after something, or the day before something, but do we have a good memory to dredge up when saying this? What we should be focused on is today. Today is the only day we have to actually do new things, attempt doing what we didn't do yesterday and may not live to try tomorrow.

Yesterday, holds many memories, some good, some fun and some sad. I didn't add a new one to my list for March 17th this year. Now, it is too late. So, I think tomorrow I'd like to be able to say--This is the day after I lived for today. How about you? What new thing will be added to your memory list? What will you be able to say to complete this sentence? This is the day after...
