The Battle of Five Armies

Normally this isn’t my genre, and I never considered even going to the movies until a dear friend of mine, and professed Hobbit nerd, asked me. She suggested we marathon the first two and then go to the premier of the third.  At first I was reluctant, because, that’s like a billion hours of hobbits and such…but then I thought, “Hey, I get to hang out with her, so it’ll be fun.” We gathered the DVDs of the first two, snacks, and some yummy drinks, then settled in for the marathon. Holy long movies, but they were good. We had[…]

Time for some inspiration…

I love finding quotes to share with you all. I often post them on my FB page. They just make me smile. And hopefully, they encourage someone. You just never know when someone just needs a kind word.  So, here are a few more I’ve found… 1.  Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant. –Robert Louis Stevenson. 2. I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been –Wayne Gretzky. 3. I never think of the future – it comes soon enough. –Albert Einstein. 4. Hold fast to dreams, for if[…]

This Writer’s Journey…Devin

Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone, in fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers. I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!   DEVIN MOLINAR I met Devin through church when[…]

The New Year Approaches…

Can you believe Christmas is only a week away? I’m still getting used to the idea that it’s DECEMBER 2011 already. Soon we’ll be ushering in a new year. Are you ready? Are you one to make a list of goals? I’m usually not, but I have a few things in mind I hope to see happen in 2012. One thing I learned in 2011 is that you can plan, but you never know what life will throw in your face. Thankfully I have a rock-solid faith, rock-solid hubby, and rock-solid friends/family!

Pay It Forward

Thank you, Alex J Cavanaugh, for putting on this blogfest! I LOVE blogging, and I’ve met soooo many wonderful people because of blogging. So, when I saw this chance to pay it forward, I was, like, “Count me in!” I first started out blogging because I was told it was part of a writer’s platform. It QUICKLY morphed into me just wanting to do it to interact with people. Meet people. Find cool blogs to hang out at. When I first started on this writing journey, Rachelle Gardner’s blog really rocked my world. Don’t get me wrong, it still does,[…]
