Happy 2022 . . . a new year, new dreams and wishes and hopes. Here’s to them coming true.
It was difficult deciding what the first post of the year should touch on. Should it be informative? Entertaining? Silly? Serious?
Then, a thought hit: why not “pen” something different, something rarely done? Like a poem.
Welcome to twenty, twenty-two
How do you do?
I’m not a poet, as you’ll soon see
But what would life be
Without a challenge or three?
Here’s hoping this year brings a reprieve
Re issues and tidings we’ll likely receive.
May our circumstances improve
That we find a new cheery groove
And once again forward we move.
Farewell to the old, the sad and the bad
Let us embrace joy and be so very glad.
Allow the pandemic to finally leave us be
So our lives are filled with total glee
And we’re all once again so very free.
Well, that was kind of fun. Yes, as the gals from the Triple Threat Investigation snorted and chortled, and declared, “Don’t leave your day job!!” (He-he, I believe I’ll heed their advice.)
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.

It astounds me that 21 years of this century already have gone by. Zoom!
One blinks and it’s gone. Time moves way too fast sometimes . . . and then, not fast enough.
