Authors, Entrepreneurs, and other Creative Individuals Pursuing Their Dreams
Perhaps this post would be better titled THE GROUP APOLOGY THAT NEVER SHOULD’VE BEEN REQUIRED, but a heading that long would never fit in the space I have available. Seven days ago, on the 23rd, I wrote a post called “Is this e-panhandling?” and asked the blog…Continue

Ever try it? Regardless of what anyone wants to say in expressing the crusader’s belief, a credo of “nothing is impossible”, that idea is, as far as science tells us today. In the future, who knows what could happen? If you’d've asked Wyatt Earp about putting a man on the moon, he’d've laughed in your face. Later, when he became a lawman, he might’ve arrested you for being…Continue

Some, though not all of my friends here, will know that in addition to my writing, I'm also a dedicated dog lover, rescuer, and owner of a number of rescued dogs of varying breeds. I'm delighted that Sonar 4 Publications, the publisher of my forthcoming novel Behind Closed…Continue
Big whoop. “Working harder” don’t feed the bulldog. “Working smarter” is what’ll get ya where ya wanna go.
There’s an article in today’s, (June 24th, 2011), San Diego Union-Tribune that’s supposed to impress someone, I guess:…Continue

Since it worked before, why not try it again? Yanked from getting back to “normal” when an involuntary sabbatical in 2010 left me a felon stranded in the hell of Michigan, I tried it. Did the unconventional. Found myself 2,600 miles from home in my pjs with a cheque for $90.46 and not much else, so I called a barber. As you can see by…Continue

Perhaps two months ago the mouse I was using with my laptop, a Logitech that came with it when I bought “Solution” in 2009, (that’s my laptop’s name), went berserk. I recognized what was happening right away, since I’ve been married four times. That stupid mouse was ruining everything for me, (a wifely trait, as I recall). Parts of a document or website would suddenly be…Continue

Yup. Whenever appropriate. In context.
The riotous clatter you hear is not a herd of stampeding buffalo or cattle, nor is it a tape of a dozen enraged elephants trampling a small village in some remote part of India. It’s a mean mess of religious zealots running to find something to swat me with. Perhaps to call their particular…Continue

The road to publication can be long and winding ... and filled with rejection. So, what do you do while you’re submitting your manuscript and waiting patiently? Okay, maybe not patiently, but waiting nonetheless.
That’s easy. And, it’s very important, create visibility. I don’t mean standing on the street corner singing at the top of your lungs, I mean creating an online presence that depicts who and what you are. In other words, you need to create your…Continue

In accounting, if you (the accountant or bookkeeper) are off even one penny, you have to search and work until that penny is found – all the income, expenses, assets, liabilities of a business must all sync at the end of every month, quarter, and year. You’re monthly trail balance sheet and the balance sheet, which reflects every penny in and out, must be perfect. There is also the reconciling the monthly bank statements.
The various data from every department, such as…Continue
When you look back, (okay, when I look back, since only I know my entire story), I’ve done a relatively piss-poor job of dying so far. There’ve been 13 instances over these last 62 years when that should’ve been the result, but it wasn’t. One time, in 1965, I even made it into the “…Continue

There’s another blog I follow, The Girl’s Guide To Homelessness, written by a girl in her late 20s named Brianna Karp. Her “homelessness” has largely consisted of staying with friends or house sitting for extended periods. She wrote a book about it using the same title as her blog. Then, with either far more…Continue

… I swat him lightly and rub his nose in it to teach him that’s a bad thing. It’s not unusual, in my experience, to do it a number of times until the puppy learns not to wet the carpet. Still, very few of ‘em are so dense they don’t catch on by the 10th or 12th time and start peeing outside. I’ve had a total of 46 dogs in my life, as many as eight at a…Continue

Ever been one? Done that? Showed up at a party without an invitation?
They’ve been cyclical in my life. In grade school, during my years at Holy Cross school in Lansing, Michigan, (also…Continue
