Crazy Drivers...

See this sign...

Yep, saw it a lot myself on our vacation. From Florida to Massachusetts. Going up and coming back.
Ok, so, let's give them kudos on actually trying to fix the highways and byways, but what's with drivers when there are "No" working signs and all of a sudden we're slamming on our brakes in the middle of the highway, then we get back up to a good 30 MPH and Blamo, slamming on the breaks again, then you have the well, I'll whip over to this lane and that lane and this lane again, because they look like they're going faster people [ Insert Homer strangling Bart ] Quick give me my blood pressure meds, LOL.

Living in my part of Florida, I've noticed that here we have some pretty decent roads. What can I say...Mass hasn't changed. You still can't see the lines on the Mass Pike at night and the instant ramp on, *here we come* to the ramp off 200 feet from that...yeah, don't know how I didn't crash while learning how to drive, LOL. Oh but wait... I still say in crazy driving situations, which are usually in big cities ..."Don't make me go Mass on you!" LOL.

Hope you all have a great day!!

What do you do at Midnight??

So, I'm sitting at the kitchen table the other night, because that's where I've set up my net book to write at the moment. It's midnight and I'm typing away on a new Sci-Fi erotic romance that popped into my head. I look up after completing a sentence to see my 14 year old on my desk top in the living room watching some Japanese Anime (It's home school's two weeks out summer time, so I've been a bit lenient on the bed time) and I whisper his name, (The man of the house is fast a sleep by now and I don't want to wake him up) so my son looks over and I start waving like a crazy lady, LOL. He gives me that, 'you're weird lady look' and then starts waving back with a big smile on his face.

Writing near midnight is easy for me. I think it's because I've had time to decompress from all the junk during the work day, my mind is cleared and I can focus on the story I want to get out.

After starting the editing process over the last few chapters of a book around midnight and finishing around 2 AM, I sent it to my editor and she said it was the best editing I'd done on the book. She didn't see anything wrong with my words, my grammar, or my dang little run on sentences LOL.(yeah, grammar still kicks my butt in several ways LOL)and ya know what...Best Selling book of the year 2007 at Whiskey Creek Press Torrid. YAY. (That would be A Slave's Way Out :-) )

So there's something to be said about Midnight. Although It's not to easy getting up for the day job when I pull all nighters *sigh, wink* LOL

Have a great day and read lots!!

Bloggers Block *scratches head*???

Is that what I have, well I think so. I've had writers block and that's a nightmare. Can blogging block be any better? No, I don't think so. For the last three weeks and even today, I've had the hardest time coming up with an issue to blog about, soooo, I didn't.

But...I'm here to say I think I have bloggers block, how much of a pain in the as$ is that!! I didn't want to go another week passing a posting by, so I thought I'd share.

Hopefully I'll be re-energized in a few weeks. I'll be heading out for a family vacation and one of our stops is Salem, Mass. It's kind of ironic if you ask me, why, well because...I was born and grew up in Mass, lived there my whole life until my early 30's then moved. Never once visited Salem, and now that I live in Florida...where do I go, LOL. Salem. A little backwards but hey, oh well. LOL. That's OK, I haven't been to St. Augustine since I moved to Florida. :-) BUT, we are planning a trip there for...Halloween. To be in the oldest city in the US on Halloween is something I really don't want to miss for another year and honestly, you really have to love the beaches on the Atlantic side of Florida. The Gulf is OK, but growing up a Mass kid, I'm kinda biased to the Atlantic.

Well, I guess I had more to write about than I thought, LOL.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!!
