The Omega and the Alpha Edition: Second Serving Sunday


A weekly peek backwards and a look ahead, from my little corner of the blogosphereare you ready?

Life Stuff:

Last Week’s Edition: On the Road Again.

  • Click the link for my recent posting history!
  • Yes, I will be attempting to complete a story a day, using prompts, all month long. The first two days have brought mixed results, but stories with potential emerged despite the missteps. I’m willing to accept that stumbles are a part of life; and there are always things to learn…
  • My April goals are also blossoming and changing with the new month.
  • We’re home from our trip, and I’ve spent some time yardtending and just hanging out in the yard with the kids – delightful, after a long and determined winter!

Last week’s features:

ROW80: The Writing Challenge That Knows You Have A Life.

  • Travels and Tribulations: The kids and I take a much-anticipated road trip, and I find embarking on a new writing project deeply unsettling.
  • Gearing Up for a Lane Shift: As April winds down and May waits in the wings, I prepare for new challenges and new growth, and reflect on what sprouted in April.

Eight Sentence Sunday:

  • “Too Fast”: Sometimes, things happen too swiftly to stop, and have powerful impact. So it is with Gladys, Iris, and Howard.

Coffee and Conversation:

  • Returning from April hiatus. Look for something new this week!

WIPpet Wednesday:

SoCS (Stream of Consciousness Saturday):

A-Z Challenge: Traveling my Way Through the Alphabet in April!

  • ZZZZZZZZ…..: Sleeping, and other shenanigans, under the stars – and farewell to A-Z 2015!

Story a Day May:

  • Into the Sunset…:  A horseback ride with T’Pol might be fun – but it’s certainly not like any Western Trip’s ever seen!

Variety’s Spice (something extra!):

April Focuses:

  • Setting ROW80 goals for Round Two, which starts on April 6.
  • Completing 60,000 words for CampNaNo.
  • Draft two Kifo Island Chronicles novellas: Transitions and Generations (I won’t finish this one until June, but this month I make a start).
  • Complete the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge.
  • Planning and plotting for Story A Day May,  when I will explore more stories for The IDIC Romance.

May Focuses:

  • Complete the Story A Day May Challenge.
  • Complete revisions and submit “Slow Jazz Awakening”.
  • Resume revisions on “Peach Liqueur Love”.
  • Plot Sea Changes: Kifo Island Chronicles #3.
  • Update blog sidebar.

This week, on the blog:

  • For WIPpet Wednesday: New stuff for April – July. I’ll be sharing whatever I’m writing, when I get to Wednesday. This week….
  • Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS):A post based on the weekly prompt, TBA Friday. Might be fiction, or not, but it’s always surprising!
  • Eight Sentence Sunday: Eight final sentences from Generations, at least for the next month.
  • ROW80 Updates: My progress on my current and/or long term goals for A Round of Words in 80 Days, posted on or near Sunday and Wednesday, beginning April 5, with my Round Two goals post.

In the Wilds of Internet-Land:

And, just because I can…!


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
