Controlled Chaos...

We are moving at the end of this month. Things may be a bit hectic (or maybe just completely insane) for the next couple of weeks. We found a beautiful little house in Durango- my days as a commuter will soon be in the past! I'm soon to be close enough to downtown to walk to my job, the library, by favorite bookstore, and the best coffeeshop in town...what more could I ask?
If I'm not posting much for the next couple of weeks, you will know why. Say a prayer to the goddess of chaos for me during this transition!

On the Move!

Addictive Fiction!

This morning I'm sharing some fabulous news. I have been working on a new fiction blog to help me share my juicy stories with the world. Yesterday, I created a template and put it online! I'll be working to build content in the weeks to come, and intend for this blog to be a resource for writers, as well as a forum for my fiction. What's in the works? Lists of my favorite authors, books on writing, and resources; writing contests and challenges; links to other writing sites and blogs; story starters and writing prompts, photos that tell a story; tools for your writing tool-box, and more! Check it out at...

Happy writing!!!

A New Vision

This is a new season for me creatively. I am creating a new vision for this blog and exploding with creative juiciness! Some of my exciting new projects include...

  1. New watercolor painting: Mermaid Sighting #173
  2. The Hitch-Hiker: An Unlikely Love Story. This is my new novel, which originally began life as a short story. I finished it at the beginning of the summer and look forward to sharing it on my upcoming fiction blog.
  3. The True-Life Confession of Ana Isabel Torres...This is another novel I've been working on this summer. A smart, sexy, twenty-first century take on Nabokov's classic, Lolita. It's still in the works, but I'll be sharing excerpts on my new fiction blog soon!
  4. Launching a new fiction blog this summer, with excerpts from Stealing Plums, The Raven Queen, The Hitch-Hiker, The True-Life Confession of Ana Isabel Torres, and other works. Stay tuned here for more news and updates on this exciting project!
  5. Taking this blog in a new direction with fabulous photos to inspire and delight you, brand-new artwork and art-in-progress photos, and musings on creativity, nature, and feeding the wild soul.
  6. Thrilling news! I will be transitioning to a four-day work-week, and reserving Mondays solely for writing, creative work, and business-building activities like professional meetings and writing dates. Yay! My goal is to transition into a full-time writer, artist, and creativity consultant. I'll be sharing my successes, challenges, stumbling blocks and lessons along the way, as I chase my dreams and dance with the Muses.

Lushly Creatively Yours,
