Gone Writing!
"Gone Writing!"

Lets talk about writing in general shall we? 

Let's face it, many of us write something, and never finish. I'm one of those people. I have several novella's here that are written without endings. Am I lazy? No. I just loose the story. The whole thing just vanishes from thought. Gone, poof. 

I can't be the only one....

Then in the middle, I check it, reread, and edit. Then I feel it isn't worthy. Others read it and enjoy it. But not me. So I give up. I'm done, thinking it's an utter waste of time and energy, leaving those characters to die on paper. 

That's what else. I never think I'm good enough. I mean, when you grew up like I did.... I'm used to failing, so yes, I throw it all away, and quit. 

Typos and spelling errors get on my last nerve, and then auto correct.....

Do you truly know how many times I have posted, tweeted and texted things I never even meant to say? Thousands! Why? Because of friggin autocorrect! And my iPad and iPhone are the worst. They seem to think they can literally think for me. If only. 

Now mind you, I have read so many books in my lifetime, that if I ever didn't share and tell others about those books, I think there would be problems! So instead, since then, I even started a blog about the books I've read, and then I interview the Authors and review their books as well! 

www.DenealesBook.Buzz.BlogSpot.com please give it a look see, if you haven't already checked it out! 

I just had to share that. It is too funny not to!

That one is funny as well, regarding writing. Both had to have made you smile! 

Ok, that's enough for now! 

So what are your pointers on writing?

Before You Do It....

Here is something that just needs to be said before any of us speak or post:

Try to do this. It's very wise. As "Cher" sings: "If I could turn back time...." Listen to the song. She regrets saying the things she said.... She goes on to say "Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes!" And they in fact do. Please re~read the photo I've posted! and than share this entry with your friends and family. 

Thank you.

Why Complicate Life? Try Communication!

I found this worthy of sharing, and worthy of my writing blog, because it has to do with communication. 

The graphic I am sharing is titled: "Why complicate Life?" I ask you this, because the key to any successful relationship, whether be friend or spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, fiancĂ© or lover; one must learn to communicate. No secrets, no more lies. This is how to live happily ever after. 

How can I personally say this? I have been married 29 years today May 31st 2014! We have five lovely Children, and five wonderful grand children as well! We are very open, and always have been with our Children as well! We've talked with them from the beginning about drugs, sex and everything, like I said, open and honest. We have five drug free Children! That in itself is an accomplishment! I personally, have never ever tried drugs, and never will, I don't smoke either. My husband smokes, and as a teen, yes he tried pot once. Were pretty impressed with our tight knit little family too! 

We feel that communication has made everything successful for us, and suggest the same for everyone else. It's pretty simple, pick up a phone, email, text, or write a letter. It's just that easy. Just call, or drop by and say "Hi!" It's nice to we are all still alive and well once in a while. 

Give it a try. Communicate. This does not mean stalk daily. This means check up on one another once in a while! Please don't take my words out of context to create problems for one another!

A Mother's Thank You


As a Child, I used to always love watching the Saturday Morning cartoons. My favorite part of the whole thing was ABC airing the "School House a Rock" series. I would sing along with those, and believe it or not, they taught me. 

Because of them, and this "Blog" I wish to do an entry that I wish to dedicate to their happy memories, "Conjuction Junction what's your function?" (If you're familiar with this series, you sang that didn't you? AND if you have an imagination, or memory (whatever the case is, you see the "Conjunction Junction Train!)

Let me start off by introducing you to a conjunction: a word used to connect clauses or sentences or to coordinate words in the same clause

Now allow me to show you words that are conjunctions:

But, or, nor, and, yet so

Now let's see how they work:

I went to the store, but I didn't want to. This easily could've been two sentences, but because of my conjunction, it's now one. Saving me a capital letter and a period, throwing in a coma, and a conjunction. It also sounds better. 

Let's try another: I don't know if I want to go yet, I'm going to think about it. Again, this could've easily been two sentences, but instead, I felt a conjunction was better. 

Are you seeing how this works yet?

Let me try to explain this, so maybe you can understand it better. Here I am using the word so, and I did it casually, to see if I catch you off guard to make it easier on you. Did it help?

Personally, I find conjunctions fun. I think it's kind of "School House a rocks" fault, but oh well. I think you need to get on "Netflix" or Rent it, borrow it, or something, and watch it yourself, 1973 was a great year. TV was educational back then. 

Now of days you watch what's on TV, or you don't watch TV at all. Conjunction the word or. And one more thing to watch for, often before the conjunction, you can find a coma. Watch for it. It's a breather in the sentence when you're reading it. Just putting that out there.....

I hope I've educated someone. If anything; I've had fun, I guess that's what counts.

Regardless of the Dictionary:

Oh snap! I just witnessed a professional person say "Irregardless." Instantly this is what I thought:

Don't get me wrong, I am well aware that Merriam~Webster added it to the a Dictionary. What choice did they have? The word now flies out of more peoples mouths probably more so then the slang word "ain't" now of days, which was also added to the dictionary!

The proper word is "Regardless" no matter what the dictionary says, which technically, pay close attention to exactly what the dictionary 'does' say!

Irregardless defined:"Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that there is no such word. There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

My thoughts are as follows, if you want to look and sound professional, you won't use the word irregardless. Dress for success, strive for success, and speak, talk and think it, and you will get there. "Regardless" of what gets in your way!

Think before you speak, and always choose your words wisely. After all, they represent you.
