48 Creative Ideas for Valentine's Day


As a writer sometimes I get plagued with writer's block. Most writers hate it. I don't blame them. Sometimes I don't mind it because that is just my brains way of screaming, "I need a break!" I'll go read or find something else to do. In time, my thoughts come back without much of a fight.

A Thing of Beauty by Lisa Samson


I am on a roll with reading lately. Whoo hooo look at me ok. Sorry, sorry.  I just can't contain my excitement. "A Thing of Beauty" by Lisa Samson spoke to me when it came time for me to decide which book to review next. I was just coming down from finishing "The Accident" by Chris Pavone and writing up that review.

The Accident by Chris Pavone


"The Accident" by Chris Pavone is sure to be a movie blockbuster. It didn't take me long to realize that this book MUST be made into a movie. It just has to. I need to see this story take shape in real life. Plus, it will just be a bad ass movie.

The Importance of Writer Resolutions


Earlier in the year I had decided I would not do resolutions. I haven't done any for the last few years and I didn't see a reason to start up again. Then, I started to see a lot of folks doing something a little different by picking their word for the year. While I did not officially choose one, it would seem that this year is all about Wellness. So, if I were to pick a word, it would be that.

What Is Considered Taxable Income?

Happy New Year!

Time to get serious about those tax rules and get your taxes in order.


Sometimes it can be confusing trying to determine what types of income are taxable and what would be considered nontaxable income. In Part 1 we discuss Canceled debt, sick pay and disability, welfare and public assistance, life insurance proceeds, gambling winnings, prizes & awards, and employer payments. If you need help keeping track of your income and expenses, there are many programs available to you; many are low cost and free.

Collecting Myself


This is a follow-up post to my face of real depression.

It was a cry out for help. At the time of that video I felt so down and out. While I wasn't suicidal, I had reached a point in my depression where if I did not wake up the next morning I'd just be better off. I felt that everyone else would be too.

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay


I'm loving "Lizzy & Jane" by Katherine Reay. Apparently I've been missing out on this author as she's the writer behind the critically acclaimed novel, "Dear Mr. Knightley." I have since put that book on my "To Read" list on Good Reads.
