Another year down, wow... maybe it's time, maybe it's age, maybe it's wisdom, lol. In any event, the end of the year has drawn me closer - inward, and made me realize I need to think about my new year's resolutions differently. Happy New Year all!!!

I am watching 'Return of the Jedi' on cable. It is six p.m. on New Year's Eve and I am in bed. I have a slight cold and my shih tzu Chewbaca, who looks more Ewok than Wookie, is curled next to me snoring.
I watched 'Return of the Jedi' with my dad at the drive-in thirty years ago. The saga is about a brother and sister and their father.
And my story 'Movie Time', about a childhood trip to the drive-in with my father, was published today in a literary…

"Because time won't give me time..." ("Time" by Culture Club)
Cinderella only had to worry about the stroke of midnight.
The stroke of midnight no longer hems me in its prison. Oh yes, as a teenager and as a twenty-six year old returning home for a year, it did.
Now the stroke of each hour binds me in a chokehold. And the minute hand has just landed on twelve.
It is 8:00a.m.

It is never too late to become what you might have been.
I’m getting acquainted with the woman who has made an appearance on my computer. She’s a bit like me, only bitchier, at least at the beginning of the book. Not her fault. She’s been married to a bully of a husband for forty years and for some reason, she’s hung in there. Not my problem, but I can identify.
One morning she wakes up next to him and discovers…Continue

I’m thinking that folks writing books in this flowing stream-of-consciousness manner are either would-be, envious, behind-the-times Joycists or angry anti-Strunkists revolting against every red-inked correction they ever received from instructors whose job was to make their writing readable.
But, then, I’m an old lady, taught the conventional punctuation of the early 1900’s by Teacher Kuhnau, who was born in Germany and understood that rules are…Continue

Well, I hope I’m not jumping the gun too much when I say that the world didn’t end in 2012 — which is great, because it means I have more time to write (and even to write about the world ending!). So without further ado, these are my writing resolutions for 2013:

I saw her in my periphery as I turned left at the light.
Tall and slender. Holding a phone, I think.
The sight of her immediately caused my heart to race and my eyes to tear up.

With a New year nearly on door step Me and my Best Friend started to think about why she likes it so much and I, well, not so much.
My friend thinks that December 31 is the one day where you can do whatever, because on January 1 Everything will be erased. I guess if you put it that way it kind a gives you freedom to fulfill craziest ideas of yours.
For me New years used to be depressing since I always started…
