I’ve accepted another tag…

Barbara’s Meanderings has tagged me. Here are the questions: 1. If you could be any famous person, who would you be? I don’t know if I’d want their crazy, publicity-hounded lives, but if I could be the female Stephen King and write as many books as he has, make them as fantastic as he has, […]

The Questions I Thought I was Safe From…

Well, Yikici snuck up behind me and tagged me, so without further pause, here are the answers to the questions. To be followed by my fellow tagees… 1.   Where did the inspiration for writing your WIP come from? A couple different sources. Once upon a time, a movie called Stand By Me (Yes, Stephen […]

And a New Tag from Laurie Dennison…

Thanks, Laurie!! 1. What kind of music (if any) do you listen to while writing? I don’t usually listen to music as it distracts me and pretty soon, I’m singing and tapping along and there goes my focus for the day. Lol. 2. Do you rush right out to see the movies adapted from books […]

My First Tag!!

1.  If you could be any fictional baddie who would you be and why? My favorite baddie would be the Walking Dude but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want to be him. Lol. He’s too creepy. And from recent reads, I’d have to choose between zombies, ghosts, and zealous Mai hunters. Oh, maybe one of […]

I love getting to know other people and this platform building idea really encourages inter-action between bloggers of all types. Let’s see. I’m a member of a lovely group of ladies […]

Don’t Give Up

Don’t Give Up Traci Kenworth   Don’t give up, not even when pigs fly. This writing life we do takes guts, determination, and faith in yourself even when there is no hope in sight. It’s hard to hold on when the rejections keep coming in, the phone call doesn’t happen, your book doesn’t rest in […]

Why I Write the Scary…

Why I Write the Scary… Traci Kenworth   From the time I first picked up Comes the Blind Fury, by John Saul I was hooked. I was babysitting with a friend and the couple had a fabulous library to explore. I didn’t want to read it, it made me shiver inside, but it also kept […]

By the Roadside…

By the Roadside (Observations on life, books and the like…) Traci Kenworth   Living where I do, in Amish country, is simple, easy, and a bit breath-taking. You see some quaint things you don’t see every day in the city. I think it’s part of the charm. Yet, more and more residents are having to […]
