Happy Memorial Day Posted by Hello

Monday is dead once more.

But like the phoenix from the ashes, she will rise again to try and destroy me. I will triumph over her until the day I die!!!! I despise Monday's with a purple passion, I am notorious for despising them, and just as notorious for loving Friday's. Friday means your whole weekend is open, to do what you want. Like the open road and a full tank of gas! Roll on Friday! Come on fast!

I hope all had a lovely Memorial Day. Both my grandfathers and my own father were in different wars at different times, so pride in your country and respect for those that have served was instilled in me at an early age. It isn't about grilling, or the start of summer. Its about those that lived and died, fought and cried, the dead, the survivors, the fighters for our freedom. Freedom to bitch and whine and moan and groan as much as we darn well please!

But today, give it a rest, if you see an older gentleman, chances are he was in a war. Ask him, and if so, shake his hand, pat him on the back tell him, THANK YOU! If nothing else, you will have made someone's day. And if you have served in a war, *salutes* I am proud of you! Love and kisses!

Confessions of a Star Wars Widow

I am not technically a widow, however, my husband does leave this world for another during the release of the new movies. And at other times when he gets a hankering to watch the older ones, the the newer ones to compare the two. Then there are the making ofs, the documentaries on how they were inspired to make the creatures, the how to be more like Darth, the Padme, how do I love thee? Are you getting the picture?

Case in point. I have been married for seven years. And after seven years of rather nice presents to my darling, I was told that the present this year was the most wonderful one he'd ever gotten. It was a Darth Vader Voice Changing Mask/Helmet. And yes, he wears it alot.

He's 36 years old, forever young, forever a Star Wars Fan--atic. I know all the names of the creatures from the Bantha, the Jawas (people not creatures really but the eyes are creepy) whom I have a suspicion were simply ugly Ewoks that hadn't found out about Rogaine to help with their hair issues; Jabba, and of course my favorite of all time, the Wookie. (And Han Solo but that is a whole different ballgame)I had to buy six boxes of Apple Jax so he could get the all important Darth Vader light saber spoon w/which to eat his cereal, I've had to go to the Burger King at each and every opportunity so he could get the Darth Vader fatheaded dollies. (Hubby got two, one to play with, one to keep in the hermetically sealed vault I am sure he has secretly dug beneath the house.)

We have a room with so many 'action figures' (read dolls they are so dolls!) that its like a Voodoo Convention against Lucasfilms. Jar Jar is a dirty word in my home. James Earl Jones as the voice of DV made it confusing when he took off the mask and became a bald white man. (puzzled frown)

However, I digress. Come May 18 (?) I was home alone whilst the husband and child.. headed backLONG AGO TO A GALAXY FAR FAR AWAY............................ I did enjoy my three hours plus of family free time,got a bit of writing done on my WIP.

I have nothing but good will towards the StarWars Fans, that is from me a tried and dyed in the wool Trekkie (LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!!) which goes to show there can be peace between the two camps. Or, at least, negotiations can be fun :DMay the Force be with you my friends. *cue Star Wars music then overlay it w/Leonard Nimoy's voice saying 'Space, the final frontier' just to tic off my man*

Five books that mean a lot to you ...
1. Ashes in the Wind, my first romance, ever. Kathleen (sighs) She did Shanna too, loved that book.
2. Windflower, Merry and Devon were ok, but Cat was the man! And Rand Morgan too. Loved this book, I've lost my copy and I am not amused at all.
3. The Raider by Jude Devereaux. I was 16 when I read this book. I laughed so hard and have since read all of her books. Love Ms. Jude's historicals the best.
4. The Dark Hunter Series (I like the Were's best, escpecially the panthers) I read this book and went wow! Then I saw the sight and did another wow. And then, I found the yahoo group and said mm, I wonder if I could do this? Well, two years later and the answer is, I guess so. LOL Go Sherri! If I am ever pub'd she is goin into my Dedication page!!!
5. Interview with a Vampire, read it at 13. (It was in my highschool library) At this point I, the reader of Salem's Lot, viewer of Nosferatu, went, well,dammit! Vamps can be hot! Lestat, Louis, I knew the well.
A mention also to LKH's Vamps. Read these books and said Vamps can have SEX? OMG! Well, there are possiblities there, and the rest is sort of nasty and weird and perverted. And if I ever get it published, I will let yall know.

Inspiration art for my WIP Posted by Hello

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to write I go.

I am a writer. I have decided to stop saying aspiring. A published friend of mine (Mary) says to think positive. So, I intend to do so. I have been published in a way, if I think about it. I've written the same couple on a loop that is read by at least a thousand or so people for over 2 years. Therefore, I am published, if only web published. My writing has changed a lot in the past few years, hopefully, it's better.

Well, this is the weekend, my major writing time is upon me. However, I have another job, which I hope will further my career. I am a reviewer! Whoohoo, free books. I like the job, it's fun, I get to read good books and give my opinion on them. Being a writer (notice I didn't say author, that sorta says published to me) I make my reviews upbeat, not scathing and mean. How horrible. I will give constructive criticism, but nicely.

I've written in my new blog, I like it, and I hope you will too.

Still new at this.

I am still trying to get the hang of all this. So far, it's a bit beyond me. I am an aspiring writer, that means I haven't finished anything fit for publication yet, unless you count the two years I've spent writing a set of characters on an RP fanfic website. I sort of do, because as I've grown, so has my writing, and yeah, my cast of characters has grown as well.
Hope to get better at my blog, and I hope I will have something at least moderately witty to say next time. However,it is Friday, I am only thankful I didn't kill anyone at work, this week. Next week? Is wide open

Hi, I am new to the blog, so bear with me. I hope to get a few things down, so if needed, I can go back and see how I was feeling at a certain point. I am an aspiring author, and my goal is to get something ready for submitting soon. That's all for now.
