All good things must come to an end....

So, I've been really bad about cross-blogging all of my guest posts at Vie Hebdomadaires... thought I would try and correct that.

Here are the links to my guest posts, should anyone wish to have a look see. And, even if you'd rather not read all my ramblings, definitely give the Vie Hebdomadaires site a chance, it's a pretty novel idea to pass a blog around to 52 strangers around the world!

Anyway, on to the links:
Day 1--And, the mysterious stranger behind the mask is....
Day 2--Dinosaur digger, or treasure hunter....
Day 3--Of the trouser mind, or rigidly defined....
Day 4--And on this day.....
Day 5--Ask me once, I'll tell you my name, ask me twice, I'll tell you the same.....
Day 6--Not a good idea to let your mind wander, unless you're sure it's strong enough to be out on its own....

Thus ends my adventures as guest blogger of the week!

Adventures in guest blogging....

I've been honored with a request to guest blog this week over at Vie Hebdomadaires. It is an intriguing little premise that brings a new writer to take the reins every week. In essence, the blog morphs and evolves into whatever personality the guest blogger brings to the table and then, once the guest blogger selects another person to pass the gauntlet to, the blog morphs and evolves once again.

First post is up, an introduction post, give it a look see if you'd like and if anybody would like to be considered for the title of guest blogger starting next week, let me know!

Oh me, oh my, how the time does fly.....

So, I woke this morning, and would have sworn to anybody who asked me, that it was only the day after Halloween. As my last post was dated 10/31/11, I had no problem whatsoever believing that today was November 1st..... but, it's not----

sigh.....

How a person goes about losing 20 days when they are not in a coma or some other unconscious, time-suspended kind of situation, is beyond me... clearly.

But, a lot of things have whittled away the time and I was completely unaware of how quickly the month was passing.

Nanowrimo started on the 1st. This is year 5 for me and the first time that I've ever started without a clear plot in mind... of course, that didn't mean I would easily give up. For the first week, in fact, I was right on schedule, my daily 1667-word goals adding up quite nicely.

By week two, I found myself hotel-bound in Edwardsville, Illinois working on a bookstore remodel for my company. Anyone who's ever worked in book retail knows it isn't the easiest …
