A Mish-Mosh

Are there still seven days in a week 'cause these Thursdays seem as if they're arriving faster?!!

The fashion show last Saturday was spectacular!! My daughter's collection looked stunning on the runway, and I was able to keep my weeping noises below the decibels of the music!

Happy Release Week to both Cerise DeLand and Katalina Leon!

We received more snow on Sunday and Monday! Excuse me, but aren't we in the middle of April? I was looking at the blooming flowers in my front garden as I scraped the ice and three inches of white stuff off my car! Two weeks ago I was threatening to turn on the air conditioning when the temps hit almost eighty degrees.

My two WIPs are slowly but surely taking shape. My writing process continues to evolve, much to my own surprise. In the past, stories hit me like a ton of bricks. I wrote lineally, from beginning to end. If I got hung up on a scene, a conversation, a sentence for God's sake, I stayed at it until it was right enough for me to continue. Now, that isn't working for me. It helps to have more than one story going at a time so that when I hit a hard spot, I have something else to go to. I've even taken to writing random scenes in hope they will work into the story later.

Did anyone watch the first episode of Game of Thrones on HBO? I did, kind of by mistake, and am thoroughly hooked! I just read it's already been picked up for season #2 due to viewer response.

Have a great weekend!



  1. I'm so happy your daughter's show went well. I finished reading Pampering Jessica yesterday. What a great story.

  2. So glad that the show was a success. You must be such a proud mama! The hubby and I have been waiting for the show and can't wait until Sunday for another episode! It so awesome. HBO really does a great job with these shows.

  3. I'm so happy your daughter's Fashion show was such a big success! What an amazing milestone for her to reach!
    I wish I had HBO. Game of Thrones looks so wonderful.
    Last but certainly not least welcome to the WIP "carousel of chaos", it actually works for me. I always have at least three WIPs on my desktop going at the same time.

  4. Amber, I'm so glad you enjoyed Pampering Jessica!!

  5. Marie,
    I am very proud!
    I'm terrible about remembering to tune in to new tv shows, and I'm not modern enough to have a dvr or any other technology that would help me!

  6. Thanks, Kat!
    And I'm so glad to know the "carousel of chaos" is a workable approach!!

  7. Busy week, huh Tess! Congrats on your daughter's show. I would be on cloud nine! Congrats to Cerise and Kat and yay on your WIPs!
