Power to the People | Makesmyheadspin

Since I know some of you are going on the March On Washington this weekend, I thought I would share this important protest information from makesmyheadspin.

It’s good advice. Please, be safe and return to us in a timely, and safe, manner.

I don’t want to get too political here because that’s not what this blog is for, but since this blog has the most followers I wanted to share something. If you’re planning on prot…

What Did You Do?

I was visiting another blog this morning, answering a question about long car trips when I had some inspiration!

What did you do to occupy yourself, or your own children, while on long car trips?

We did the classic I Spy, name all the states/provinces alphabetically or geographically, how many out of state/province license plates can you spot, how many rigs (transport trucks) can you spot (developed specifically for my 5 year old, at the time, brother), card games, Yahtzee, Boggle, reading, dinky cars, sleeping, arguing sigh. Those were the days, now we hardly see each other.

Ooohhhh, we also did spelling and grade specific math without pen and paper, a calculator or anything else other than our brains and fingers and toes :D.

She’s Baaaaaaack!

Hi all:  Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long

 

I took some mental health time. The period from mid November to the first week of May is a rough period for me and my mental capacitors don’t fire on all cylinders. I still function, mostly as normal, but something had to give in order for me to mentally make it through April and May. Unfortunately what gave was SVM & TB Stories and This ‘N That.

I haven’t been reading blogs. I haven’t been writing. I haven’t been doing much of anything.

I have been facebooking way too much. I’ve been betaing but not nearly enough and my attention span is almost non-existent.

I’m not even going to try to play catch up with book reviews since there are over 500 emails in that folder so I will start fresh this Sunday.

Until then…

VisDare 131: The Escaped

I would LOVE to read an actual story based on what was written!

The Examiner’s eyes seemed to move in all directions at once. ‘Where is she?’ He asked, his voice echoing off the empty porcelain tubs that stood guard in the four corners. The Wa…

A New Book Review

A Spirit Displaced is ready and waiting for you 🙂

Guest Chapter

Over on Archive Of Our Own (AO3) is where I read most of my Harry Potter fiction. Earlier this week I was approached by kendallnicola to write something for her ongoing series of one shots: Wifi Makes Its Way To Hogwarts. The series is just a lot of silliness but it’s quite entertaining, especially when she brings the Professors in on things.

So, here it is, Reading Around Kisses. Kendallnicola added some things to make it a little longer and make it fit in more with her writing style but it is me :).

If you don’t have a membership at AO3 you will need one since it isn’t rated.

Enjoy.
