Friday Fare: 7/29/16

Friday FareFriday Fare is where I post links to the random articles that have resonated with me during the week. Sometimes they make me smarter, sometimes they make me hungry … sometimes they have to do with writing and sometimes they are just plain random.

I was at an actual fair this past weekend and to my surprise and shock, I discovered that I really, really, really, really like truck pulls / rallies.  Seriously enjoyable.

I’ve adored Walton Goggins since he played Shane Vendrell in “The Shield.”  Recent projects have earned him some well deserved accolades and seriously – he always gives a good interview.

The Kitchn is one of my favorite food aggregators and they recently started a series where they ask authors to name their favorite midnight snacks.  (I typically aim for sleep at the midnight hour, but if I’m awake and writing, hand over the dry Cheerios and no one gets hurt.)

File this under “GET IN MAH BELLY” – rosé gummy bears.  Seriously. How cool is this?


Listening to: I’ve spent some time in my hometown lately and although he hails from Kentucky, Sturgill Simpson always seems to be an appropriate listen.  This song in particular.

Reading:  Eh … my TBR pile is kind of ridiculous and unmanageable right now.


Enjoy the weekend!


Monday Mayhem: The ‘Where the Hell Have You Been’ Edition

Some roses to appease you!
Some roses to appease you!

I wish I could tell you that I’ve been off doing IMPORTANT WRITERLY things, but to be honest – the day job took up most of July’s productivity and then last week, I finally came up for air to try to be a good wife and mom to those folks who feed my soul.

But I’m back.  I’m here.  My project workload is now down to a handful of proposals versus a metric sh*tton.  And to celebrate my newfound freedom, I’m taking today and tomorrow off.  And I’m hoping that I’ll get through the last fourth of edits that I need to make to get AL from sh*tty first draft (SFD) to a less vomitous second draft.

There’s still more work to be done, but it’s all about milestones and deadlines.

Hope you are all well out there in readerland!
