The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good: I got my MacBook back from the shop and it worked perfectly. Well, I mean everything I sent it away with came back just as it was when I sent it away. They *said* the optical drive worked, but alas, I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Why, you ask?

The Bad: My son walked in the door and apparently slammed the door a little too hard. (Remember, we are living in a camper. Out door latch as a mild crimp, meaning you HAVE to slam it or it will not close.) My coffee cup was siting on the table and it literally jumped off the table and into my lap. I kid you not. It really did jump. Honest. The really bad? My MacBook was sitting happily on my lap.

The Ugly: Coffee spilled on a laptop equals broken laptop.

The REALLY UGLY: I'm not for sure what will happen this time for repairs. I'm sure something is really broken because my computer will not turn on at all.

Needless to say, my posting this week will be like last week. Minimal. I am really disheartened at the moment. I don't feel like writing or blogging or doing anything. Sure, it's just a computer, right? With years of research, hundreds of dollars of software and programs, pictures, graphics, passwords to all my online places, and

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have
