How Does It Work?

Thought I would try to post. My first little, Bella, is thirteen now - a surly teenager, but I do love her. She is taller than me. Along with Oliver, Thora, Penny and Carson I am blessed with grandchildren. 

I keep up with all of you and happy to hear how you are and sad when life happens to all of us.

Does anyone know if we still have access to Picasa? Well, here goes...

And So It Goes

I am -- pickling, writing, watering my flowers, planting, and harvesting, binge-watching Netflix, taking hubby to doctor, and generally waiting out the virus, which is getting worse in my state. 

I finished my third novel and now the re-writes ad nauseam, queries, synopses, and everything that goes with it. My sister asked why I do this to myself and I have no answer. 

 I do think of each and every one of you and binge read your posts. I don't think I understand how the new blogger will work and I am prevented commenting on your posts. I don't think it will even let me answer your comments. I hope I can find all my blog posts and pictures after the changes go into effect.  Love to all out there. Donna

A New Year

Hello friends. It has been so long, I am having to re-learn how to do this. 

The days are flying by. How does this happen? 

I don't like to look back. Try to live in the present. Last year, I wrote another novel. Spent nearly the whole year writing, editing, re-writing and on and on. Trying to find an agent with all that it entails. It is more than this aging brain can do and it's a whole new day in publishing.  I can't even do all that is required on computers to submit. It is boring so I won't go on. I am beginning to start a sequel or another one I want to write. I just need to get started. I really need an assistant to help with all the queries, etc., but don't want to pay for it.

Hope the new year is a good one. My little weenie girls are still with me. My sister is still with me.  I lost my brother in July. He was homeless and alone. My heart was broken for Todd. He was only 52.
My grandbabies are growing and changing so fast. Carson just turned two, Thora three, Penny will be five next month. Bella is 12 and taller than me. They are so much more grown-up at twelve now. And, Oliver is 10. All so sweet and innocent.

I do check in from time to time on your posts and think fondly of you. Here's to 2020.

PS ~ what's the new blogger?
