She's also quite a daredevil and may enjoy extreme sports. :D What a character! Having a nice visit with family but...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Yes, Pup, I finished my paper. Now I have another one. Procrastinating again. I've got my articles selected; I just need to sit down and write the darn thing. :roll: Maybe I shouldn't aim so hard for A's. I'm also avoiding the voicemail on my phone from work so I don't feel guilty for not going in e...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Just stalling until I *have* to get back to my paper. :roll: It's not terribly uninteresting, but tedious. Surprisingly I had a lot of trouble with the part which asked for a personal experience. I still had to put in references for the concepts, so it took longer than I thought. Sorry you're strugg...

Re: Be a Better Writer--WHAT'S YOUR QUESTION?

Thanks, Jan. I do recognize I have strengths and weaknesses, in all areas of my life. I know I'm a grammatically tight writer, and good with dialogue, though significantly less creative than say, Sara (her muse never stops). I suppose it's good that I need help in this area, so I don't get too pride...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Keep watching, Rachel! Ryan rolled his eyes the first few episodes, but powered through and got hooked. It gets better. You really get invested in the characters. But yeah, the bad guys are cheesy, and special effects aren't quite like Marvel. Just try a few more. :wink: Ugh...school's back in full ...

Re: Be a Better Writer--WHAT'S YOUR QUESTION?

Are some people's muses more active than others'? (pardon my bad grammar if I wrote it wrong) I just always seem to have trouble coming up with ideas. I'm far better at non-fiction than I am at fiction; I can write pages and pages about real experiences but the best I can do for fictional ideas is a...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Love you, Shann, and am praying for you. Words do hurt and it's hard to not let them ring in your head over and over again. (((hugs))) We had a nice Thanksgiving. I came home from work and prepped the stuffing and stuffed the turkey, then made cranberry sauce. Since I was sleeping, Ryan stuck the bi...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Shann, if you've been saving, and the bed is on sale, I'd say buy it!!! My hubby was having major back problems, and they corrected overnight (literally) when we got a new mattress. We got a steal, too - a nearly $2000 mattress for like $700. It is a lot to spend on quality products, but your health...

Re: Be a Better Writer--INTENTIONAL ANACHRONISM

I've read some good Biblical fiction, and I've read some bad. One does need to be really careful when writing it, that's for sure. One of my best attempts was If Jesus Were Born Today... , which you featured on the front page at one point, so I know you like it. :wink: That one was also really fun t...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

That's okay, Pup, I knew you wouldn't miss me. :tongue A busy week but slowed down from what it has been. We went up to the mountains again for a day and a half to breathe some fresh air and hike a bit. Our hike was two hours, and this time we didn't get lost. :wink: Of course it helped that there w...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

:sofa *tiptoes in, looks around* :hide Hi, all...my name is Leah, and I've been a bit - shall we say - AWOL for awhile. Pretty much like 3 months straight. I got back from my visit to Seattle and was plunged into a CRAZY busy time in our unit - I pulled massive overtime in two weeks. Four mornings I...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Back from Seattle; wiped out; have to work the next three nights and then my (online) class starts.

Had a relaxing week, though. Will post pics of the cutest niece in the world later. :wink:

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I know I've been AWOL for awhile. Just busy. I'm too tired to even recap. :( Love you all and sorry I've missed so much conversation. I just caught up on all the posts. Working the weekend and then going to Seattle for a week. Maybe someday I'll not be too tired to write. :roll: Hope y'all are well.
