Update to Reading!

I have been in a funk lately. Can’t seem to write. Can’t seem to get any blog posts done. Haven’t been keeping up with Twitter. And I barely post on Facebook.  And I can hear people saying, “Oh, you sound like you’re depressed.” But I’m not. (I think it’s an aversion to the computer, or …

Take a Chance On Me!

A couple of weeks ago my niece posted on her blog about character personalities and where do you come up with them, so this morning I was making copies of personality traits I had found on the internet for her. Personally, I don’t have that problem. I get ideas from TV, the internet, music, and …

Judging a Book By Its Cover Summing it Up

Before I sum up my thoughts on “Judging a Book by its Cover” I have one last minute cover to share.  “Take A Stand” written by Nancy Bandusky. I came up with it because the hero has to decide to take a stand when Christianity is outlawed. My husband, Brent, designed the cover. I wanted …
