Jackie Felger from Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand from Entertaining Interests founded this great blog hop that has a great group of people with weekly topics that change every month. They also have a site they co-author together:  Cover Girls.

The topic for May 25-29 is: Name a few things you like to eat while writing.

That’s easy – anything. Ha! No, seriously. There are a couple of things I must have when I’m writing:

First and foremost is coffee (I know it’s not food to most people, but it’s one of MY food groups). I recently switched to decaf though; I’m trying to ease up on my stress level. We’ll see if it works.

Second, I must have some snacks by my side . I’ve kept it healthy with either Yoplait Whips, or a Special K low-fat, high-fiber, soft-baked breakfast bar.

When I’m really on a roll and want to treat myself, I’ll cop to having a Reese’s peanut butter cup or two. They’re my favorite.  🙂

What do you snack on when you write? Any energy-boosting ideas you’d care to share? 

 

Express Yourself – ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Hello bloggers! It’s time for Express Yourself, the weekly blog hop that posts different topics and updates monthly. I’ve been out of the loop for a bit, plus the meme was on brief hiatus in April for the A-Z Challenge (whew!).

What the girls would like to know for  the week of May 11-14 is: Now that we’re 1/3 of the way through 2015, what’ve I accomplished so far?

Actually, I’ve accomplished a lot. 🙂

 

  1. I participated and completed my very first A-Z Challenge this year.
  2. I entered a piece in this year’s WRiTE CLUB competition for the second year in a row.
  3. I’ve managed to keep up about 98% of the goals I’ve set for myself since the beginning of the year. Whatever I couldn’t accomplish or fell behind on was mostly due to illness or exhaustion.
  4. Been working on getting My Miracle Life blog to where I want it to be. It should be done by summer’s end.
  5. I completed this year’s round of physical therapy with flying colors!
  6. I’m becoming more socially involved and ‘getting out there’ so I’m not stuck home alone with Sophie all day.
  7. I’m working on a story that continues my WC piece.

What have you accomplished since the New Year began?

Most people who know me know I love anything zombie related. My daughter got me into The Walking Dead; it sucked me right in, hook, line and sinker.

What about you? What’s your favorite apocalyptic scenario?

Oct. 6, 2014-Oct. 10, 2014:

What’s the scariest movie or book you’ve ever watched or read!

Thinking about it, there are far too many scary books and movies that I’ve seen and read to be able to name off the top of my head. ‘Halloween’ terrified me when it first came out in theaters; the theme music alone still gets me to this day. I was fourteen. I’m sure by today’s standards it’s considered lame because there’s no real blood curdling violence in it. Anticipating what was going to happen is what made the movie so damn scary. That tops my list. The movie ‘It’ and based on the novel by Stephen King comes in a close second.

 Stephen King or Dean Koontz wrote most of the scary books that I read when I was younger. I haven’t read them in a while because I’ve tried to expand my horizons by reading different genres, but Pet Semetary and Carrie are definitely up there. Even though it’s on the tip of my tongue, I can’t remember the name of the Dean Koontz novel I read more than once because it was just that good. I’ll post it the day I figure it out. LOL.

That’s about all I have for this week. I look forward to next week and will try my hardest to be on time with my post!! Hugs to Dani and Jackie for being such great friends!

Express Yourself – October 4, 2014

Hello bloggers! I know everyone is shaking their heads and saying ‘What in the world happened to you girl?’ Well, it can take a while to explain, but I’m truly blessed to have Dani and Jackie always having my back by keeping me on the list. They’re aware that things are usually coming out of left field for me.

I’m in a less stress environment, and now that my furniture and belongings have been permanently moved to my apartment, I’m looking forward to positive things in the future.

Name one thing you love about autumn, even if you hate it!

Autumn has always been my favorite season of the year. I can’t just name one thing I love about Autumn; it’s as impossible as asking which child is your favorite! I love the cooler, crisper air, the changing colors of the trees. I get to pull out my sweaters, wind breakers, and boots.

I’m looking forward to Halloween in all of its fabulous awesomeness this year. Pumpkins and more pumpkins. Carved pumpkins, pumpkin pies, muffins, coffees and lattes. Decorating the cottage once I unpack and organize. Way too excited.

There you have it. The (ahem) ONE thing I love about Autumn.
