Traveling Plans

on January 21, 2016

Okay– so last year was a FLURRY of traveling.  I think I listed all of the places in my Christmas letter, and in addition to San Diego–three times–and San Francisco–twice–there was also Dallas, Florida, and New York. Oi! This year, not so much. If ALA is in San Francisco again, I may go sign books… Read More

Dogs in the Corner

on January 20, 2016

Me: Geoffie! Johnnie!  You’re driving me crazy! What do you have to say for yourselves? Geoffie:  But… but there was NO WALKIES! Me: There was SOME walkies– Johnnie: There was TOO MANY walkies! Me: It was a quarter of a mile, Johnnie. Johnnie: Magic sky water. Did you forget the magic sky water? You went… Read More

Change? We Fear Change!

on January 19, 2016

Thanks, M/M Romance Group! (Although it is going to tickle me to be the winner of an award for Best Sex Industry books for a very long time. It might even help to make me a cooler mom– you never know 😉 Anyway… Mate did a very nice thing for me today.  He moved my… Read More

A Pinch of This or That

on January 18, 2016

1.  ZoomBoy had a soccer game today– they tied, 4-4, but the best moment by far was watching Mate when they were down 3-0.  He buried his face in his arms and wished for teleportation– I could tell, and I was across the arena.  He popped up though, and the boys rallied, but he doesn’t… Read More

Redirecting the Blast– A Racing for the Sun Ficlet

on January 17, 2016

So, the trip to Reno was lovely, thank you. We ate a very expensive meal (but we actually brought the leftovers home on the train and had them for dinner, so maybe it was only a mildly expensive pair of meals 😉 and enjoyed the snow. As I posted on Twitter, I was highly amused… Read More

Score– Boychildren 0, Girlchildren 2

on January 15, 2016

And, ladies and gentlemen, today’s game went as follows… *  This morning, as I was working, Big T came in. Now, granted he’s a bit stoned these days because he had to get his gum grafted to his gum (and OUCH!) so, he talked to me and I told him I was busy and he… Read More

5 Unrelated Things With Pictures

on January 14, 2016

1. This is still not enough coffee. Now you know.  2. Fans are the bestest. This is what happens when Mary Calmes starts a debate over who’s more of a douche–Scott from Johnnies or Robbie from Candy Man. And then the words “code black angst” are thrown around. Yes. Mary– I blame you.  3.  I… Read More

Coming Soon

on January 13, 2016

I do this sometimes on my FB group, Amy Lane’s Anonymous, but that’s not really easy to recall and look at again and again and again. I have reorganized my queue– and what this means to you is that I’ll be working on certain things because I’ve established a rhythm, and that certain other things… Read More

When Squish Rules the World

on January 12, 2016

“See, mommy? It’s a Christmas packet.” *grumbles*  “It’s the same one we did last year.” “That’s nice hon– you got them all right…”  *winces*  “Of course you did.” “Yeah, but this year they had a thing about Christmas symbols. I talked about the snowman, which wasn’t really a symbol of  Christmas, but just of winter… Read More

Okay– so, writers figure it out fairly quickly. Human beings are finite creatures, and there are very few stories to tell. I didn’t take the class or read the book, but there are something like nine basic plot archetypes–because humans live very short lives. We’ve got coming of age, falling in love, supporting/protecting our families,… Read More
