Frog Marching Friday

2013-Winner-Square-ButtonFound this really wonderful site, then lost it, but I’ve found it again. I know it’s late for NaNo participants, but you know what? IT’S NEVER TOO LATE. There’s no RULE that says you can only write fast during November. You can challenge yourself any time! You can challenge a bunch of friends. You can make your own steenkeeng badges!

ANYWAY, here’s the site, specifically this post: Writer Unboxed, Frog Marching the Muse. This is all Good Stuff, and I adore the titles, of the blog and of the post. This particular post is about getting the words to flow, even if they don’t wanna.

Don’t ask me why The Blarney Stone Blog is located at, but it is. It’s a wonderful book review blog that is designed to make me want to run over somewhere and spend some money.

Although I’m not Jewish, I’m a new subscriber to another blog with a wonderful name: The Jew and the Carrot: Jews, Food, & Contemporary Issues. They included my beloved Russ & Daughters on their list of best Jewish cookbooks of 2013. Boo-ya!

Another wonderfully named blog (no, I don’t pick ’em for the names, the names just seem to go with ’em) I’m now following is Jamie the Very Worst Missionary. She may or may not be the very worst missionary — I beg to opine that she is far from it — but she’s a damn fine blogger.

Oh! And go visit Sweet William the Scot for some adorable Scottie pictures (as if there were any other kind). This is one of Katya’s new online dog friends.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU:  What is your main character’s favorite cookbook? If your mc doesn’t cook, what is the favorite cookbook of someone they know well?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Yes, I thought she did. I’d love to sit around a table with her there and story-jam.
