The Only Thing I MUST Do

Ol’ Blue Eyes. Swoonatra. Chairman of the Board. The Sultan of Swoon. Frank Sinatra had a lot of nicknames throughout his life and storied career, but the thing that sticks with me is his rendition of the Paul Anka-penned song “My Way.” (I like Elvis Presley’s version better, but that ‘s neither here nor there.) I don’t intend to make the song my motto or anything, but I’ve decided to ditch some a lot of the “rules” and do it my way.

Thanks, Frankie.

One thing I won’t quibble with (and yes, that’s grammatically incorrect, but I’m doing this my way) is that those of us who write for a living must keep learning how to make our Continue reading

Must Have ALL The Bling!

I’ve heard that our cells completely change every seven years, so I guess this is why I suddenly must have ALL the bling! Any new cell I’ve acquired is mad for the shiny things. Mirrors, crystal, silver, furry things, velvet, chandeliers. And purple. Oh, the purple!

I’ve Become “That” Woman

Holy cats, y’all, I realized yesterday that despite my best efforts I have become “that” woman. And by “that” I mean someone that yells at the television. I know, right? I mean, they don’t listen to me anyway, so why waste time yelling? (I’d just like to point out that numerous sports teams would have won games if they’d just listened to me when I yelled at them through the television, but nooo. They just kept running three downs and punting.) Continue reading

I’m Glad My Bra Isn’t Like My Friends

I can count on my bra for support. When it comes to my books and my business, my friends (and the majority of my family) are elastic that’s been through the wash too many times. No support. None. And it’s not just me. This seems to be endemic among authors, artists, musicians, small business owners, and anyone who isn’t a celebrity. That sucks. Continue reading

Staying Nice In The Face of Ugliness

Staying nice even when everything around you is ugly isn’t the easiest thing in the world. And it seems like the majority of people have decided it’s just too hard to implement being nice when faced with criticism. I made a vow a couple of months ago that I would be nice no matter what. And yes, it’s been hard. And yes, I’ve slipped up a couple of times, because returning ugly for ugly gets to be a habit, and it becomes ingrained when it’s every-freakin’-where you look. But I pick myself up when I fall, dust myself off, and determine to be nice. And I’ve noticed that my incidents of being nice are now starting to outweigh my bouts of returning the ugly.
