Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's almost here...2013...Wow, when I was young(er), the year 2013 sounded like a
Star Trek episode, and now I am actually going to be living (I hope) it. The last two years have been very exciting for me and I pray that this new one will wield the success in publishing that I dream about.  
     Right now Raspberry Beret is doing much better than I expected and reports in are that it is better than Abby. By the way, it looks like FriesenPress (www.friesenpress.com) is selling that first title on their sale page and offering free shipping. Trust me, folks, that is a deal. If you didn't already know, Abby won an award in October and is officially the 2012 Readers Favorite Honor Medal winner for YA fiction. I am SO honored and proud of my gal Abby!
      Reader Favorite (www.readersfavorite.com) is an awesome website that offers free reviews and valuable info in the publishing world. I am so glad I found a home there.
     In November I completed the NaNoWriMo (def a site worth perusing) challenge for the second year and still like my writing idea but I do not plan to look at it again for a while. My original idea took a weird turn and I think that happened because I just wanted to achieve the word count. I have decided to let that dog lie until summer break when I can spend some quality time dissecting it. Of course my students are anxious to know about it since they had to live with their crazed teacher during that month of grueling and often senseless commentary on the subject. Thanks to those who expressed concern:)
     Okay,m enough jibber jabber...Here is my long awaited resolution list for this epic  Star Trek year:
1. actively seek an interested agent
2. give attention to those friends who still exist
3. find my parents a house to buy
4. be a patient mother and loving wife
5. pray daily
6. write on my blog more often

Happy New Year!

Have a pint or two.

I can walk!!!!

Yes, once again I am guilty of plagiarism. This is just too good not to share.
Even though I am smart enough to know the truth of my latest findings, the actuality of my experiment is crazy exciting.
End result: I can walk!!!!!!!

A study of more than 2,000 people with MS in Sweden suggests that people who had occupational exposure to organic solvents and certain MS susceptibility genes were much more likely to develop MS than those without MS genes.In addition, they found significant additive effects such that having MS genes along with exposure to solvents and cigarette smoking created a 30-fold increased risk of developing MS.ALERT!!!!!!!!!!  “Avoidance of cigarette smoke and unnecessary exposure to organic solvents, particularly in combination, would appear rea…

I'm back just in time for my MS Walk

Hello, hello, hello!!!!!

I'm back!

It has been a very long week without my computer. Yes, I know, anti-techie me, I really said that. I never realized how much I depended on my pooter until I didn't have it any more.

I was unable to review books on Readers Favorite. 

I couldn't address emails properly.

I couldn't write this blog and I really, really missed that.

I couldn't play my Facebook games or look up ridiculous trivia for which I only care.

I DID knit a lot, though; which means I binge watched a lot of Netflix (Have you seen The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?); which means I snacked a lot; which means my jeans no longer fit comfortably...

Oh, well, it is what it is...

Isn't it interesting how all the elements of our daily life often fall into these unplanned yet strategically organized patterns? :Some good. Some not so good.

Well, I find that is exactly how it is with multiple sclerosis. MS is NOT predictable even when we try to force it's awkward shape into o…
