SKYSCRAPER — DEMI LOVATO


My teenage daughters hounded me to watch this video and I refused for many months. So sorry I did. This is such a beautiful song and message for young girls. I’m not gonna say it’s this generation’s “I Am Woman” but by God it made me want to ROAR!

Closet Writers Unite


Have you been a closet writer? Hiding journals and private blogs for no one in the world to see? Well I’ve created a community on Google + for you.

I want to gather writers from all genres to help each other critique and market. If it’s working for you, share it. 

Beware: This is not a Pat Each Other On The Back Community. No fake reviews! Be honest yet kind. I want this to be a safe place for new writers to land. 

I’m creating writing forums and discussion boards as I hope we can grow together. 

Please share the link below with any writers you know!

Trade Rumors for Marty St Louis


I understand how Marty could have his feelings hurt about the Olympics. And I would definitely want to egg somebody’s house. But after losing Cory, then Vinny, the thought of Marty leaving is too much for this Lightning Fan to endure. He’s our Captain! Don’t let him go! I don’t care about this new Ranger we might get. I promise I won’t like him! 

Teacher Charged in Toilet Incident


I’m sure by now we’re all hearing about the teacher in a Broward County FL school who’s suspended and in trouble with the law for making a boy clean a urinal. The boy, in this case, is the one who purposely clogged the urinal with paper towels. The teacher made him clean up his own mess. And now the whole world is up in arms. I’m disgusted at the judicial system for even considering bringing charges against this teacher! 

I personally think it’s a shame that a teacher’s reputation is ruined because she made an unruly kid clean up after himself and be held accountable. Now this teacher is fired and facing criminal charges. Every new outlet is treating the boy in this case like a victim. He should have been in class learning instead of causing trouble. I’m sure this boy’s been a jackass all year and she finally had enough. 

Where is the home training? Where is the ‘you’ll get it worse when you get home’ mentality for this kid? And what kind of adult are we teaching him to be when he can clearly get away with being an ass and get a teacher fired for it? These are the kids who will be leading our country when we’re old and vulnerable.

What’s More Important?


I’m divided as usual. I’ve been so busy with ghostwriting for other people I’ve lost sight of my own projects. I pull up this Blog on my phone and see that it’s been a month since my last post.
I’m to the point with my own projects that they need my undevided attention. But the thought of turning down a paying job is scary.
Wish there were two of me!
