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?
