Just watched 'Seeking a Friend for the Endof the World'.

Hubby wanted to watch something more than the usual tonight and it was late and he saw this as I surfed through the guide listing. So he falls alseep halfway through and I stayup to watch and sob quietly.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the people in Boston who were injured and the friends and families of those killed. Hopefully the actual people and/or organization(s) behind the bombing will be located and brought to justice.

I don't have any news on the writing front, but I did promise myself I would try to post often. Something I read earlier today combined with an experience my brother is going through prompted this thoughtful post.

The world would be a better place if we left everything in better condition than we found it. Not just the physical , but spiritual and mental. Next time you feel angry or find ugly words trying to escape, swallow them and find something kind or encouraging to say. Or just be silent; better yet, go to a mirror and spew the vileness at your reflection. That way you get to vent but you don't tear someone else down. Also, listen to the words you verbalize. Take them to heart because if you say it to someone else, especially a child, they will.

My Muse is a stubborn wench

I've been poking at my story for ages and I'm officially stuck.   School has me completely unable to concentrate on being creative.  I thought I would use the idle time I spent in DT Fort Worth this week on world building but apparently STAAR testing sucked the creative vibe right out of me.  I tried several mediums: tablet, paper notebook, email draft...  Nothing.  I actually found myself staring at the clock, waiting for my kids to be released from testing purgatory and the only marks on the page were little dots from tapping my pencil.

It's working!

Down loaded Semagic to Drusilla and have (semi)successfully logged into my journals for maximum crossposting. All except for Wordpress. I don't seem to be able to post to that one via Semagic.
