Weekend Wrap-up April 23: NaPoWriMo – Little White Dog

I put the poem into a video because: It was kinda long I wanted to include some pictures I accidentally downloaded the Instagram frames I made on Canva as an MP4 You can always pause it if it goes by too fast. From my blog this week: Free Book Friday April 25: In Conversation withContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up April 23: NaPoWriMo – Little White Dog”

Weekend Wrap-up April 16: Ricky Gervais / NaPoWriMo Highlights

Ricky Gervais. You either like his humor or you don’t. Gervais doesn’t give a s#!t what he says. I was first introduced to him (not personally) with the show “The Office”. It was funny, rude, it made you uncomfortable, and it made you cringe, and at the end, cry. You learned to love the charactersContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up April 16: Ricky Gervais / NaPoWriMo Highlights”

Weekend Wrap-up April 2: NaPoWriMo / The Free update

I wasn’t sure if I was going to attempt the 30 poems/30 days this month, but I did write this yesterday: On the book front: I have never given my book away as a marketing tool, but I decided to give it a try. Along with posting on my blog and social media, I paidContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up April 2: NaPoWriMo / The Free update”

Weekend Wrap-up March 26: The Free Dilemma

I wanted to get my new poetry book released by April, to coincide with National Poetry Month. After some formatting issues for the KOBO platform, I decided to put it on the backburner to take advantage of the promotional opportunities of . . . [sigh] KDP. Considering that the platform-that-must-not-be-named accounts for 80% of eBookContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up March 26: The Free Dilemma”

Weekend Wrap-up March 19: So Messy

Spring. The back lane is full of deep ruts and meltwater. The sidewalks are covered with slush and water, forcing people to walk on the road. Sand and salt everywhere. Drivers don’t slow down, dousing pedestrians with a dirty shower. You realize how many dog owners don’t pick up after their pets. At least it’sContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up March 19: So Messy”

Weekend Wrap-up March 11: Productive week (yay).

A fairly productive writing week. I’m getting close to hitting 30K word mark for my newest novella and began setting up my beta-reading page on Story Origin. I also want to have my new poetry book ready for National Poetry Month (April). I spent some time formatting my new poetry book for the Kobo platform.Continue reading “Weekend Wrap-up March 11: Productive week (yay).”

Weekend Wrap-up March 5: Pain in the Gas

I filled up my gas tank yesterday, but I’m not going to complain. When innocent people are being displaced from their homes or losing their lives, I consider myself lucky. Would I stay and fight? I don’t know. I’d like to think I would. I probably wouldn’t have a choice. There are a lot ofContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up March 5: Pain in the Gas”

Weekend Wrap-up Feb 26: CSS (Can’t Seem Simple)

I decided to revamp the homepage of my website. I was tired of the bland background, so I uploaded a starry picture from Canva, went to the customize page, selected ‘set background’, and Voila! But wait. I wanted it on the homepage only and it was on every one, which meant my fonts didn’t showContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up Feb 26: CSS (Can’t Seem Simple)”
