I credit Julia Ember with the … Continue reading FUN with Mia’s Homemade Memes

I’ve seen a lot of other authors hit them-low points in their careers when it seems like the harder you work and the BETTER you write, the less happens to move your message and the size of your readership–your career, itself–forward. And the more you have to WAIT for a YES or a NO, and … Continue reading It’s the Climb
Yes, it’s a Rapunzel story. And let me tell you, I did my research. Here’s a taste of what I read in my effort to strip the Disney version of Tangled down to the most basic version of the tale.

Foul-O-Matic. Insult, swear, and curse word generator. It’s real. Google it. I succumbed to its lure. I confess: I was drawn in by its politically incorrect, crude, and perhaps even sleazy appeal. And I’m not proud of this lowly moment in my word-finding life. But I did it. I am guilty. Okay? So sue me. … Continue reading I’m Guilty… of creative cursing.
