Monday Memoir... and More

I know I've been absent from the blogosphere for a while. I've read some of your posts but then snuck out without leaving a comment. (Shay--I loved your 10-year celebration.)

I honestly can't say why I've been lazy about posting. Hopefully it's the end of my laxness.  

I thought I would post a 6-word memoir every Monday. I just got back from a writing retreat, and since it was a full weekend, I'm including two this week.


     Ate too much, accomplished not enough.

                                                          and

      I didn't know: synopsis-writing sucks.

Today, as I sat facing a whole wall of windows and stained glass (at the retreat), my laptop propped up on a low window seat, I saw a ladybug. Or what I think was a ladybug. It was red and looked like it had spots. But hey, I'm a writer-reader kind of gal. Science is not my bag. 






Then I saw a second one. This one was more orange-ish. Then a third one appeared. (I couldn't get a good shot of that one--it kept hiding behind the blinds.) Because of these insects, I came up with a 3rd 6-word memoir:



        Saw three ladybugs... thought of Val

And finally for today, I got a great new book. It's going to help me revise my writing every time. If you'd like to know what it is, read my post.

  1. Aww...you know ladybugs are special to me. I saw one crawling on my TV screen the day the cuckoo clock went wild.

    I like your 6-word memoir idea. I tried to think of one, but I'm too wordy.

  3. The red ones are the cute ones. Those nasty orange-ish ones bite! I'm glad you saw my 10 year thing.

  6. My daughter HATES ladybugs... physically gets nauseous if she sees too many at once. Ha. And um, writing retreat and you didn't invite me, shame on you. Please tell me you didn't go to that one place that I like so much. Love the six word memoir.

  7. I love ladybugs, though I did see a lady bug infestation once, and it wasn't pretty. So I guess I should say I love them in moderation. :)

  8. You are one busy writer. Those orange bugs nip, and congregate on ceilings and in corners at my daughter's house. I think red lady bugs are sweet. We used to call these orange beetles potato bugs.

  9. Monday is a rather complicated time for all the people, as everything that was not done during the weekend must be completed here. But you must exactly have time for fun and relax, for example, for microgaming poker and this day will not be so difficult and boring for you!
