Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

:tongue HEYA! Decided to dabble back into writing. Using the NaNoWriMo write-ins to push me. So far we've had three word wars in this write-in which put 628 words on the board for the current Challenge topic. Needs polishing and editing, but maybe it will get me going again. Pretty much done for the...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I asked for prayer on FB but for you guys who don't play over there I'll post it here. My parents took my dad's dad to the hospital last night with severe chest and abdomen pain...after an MRI they said he has a blood clot in his lungs, metastatic cancer, and a perforated bowel. At almost 93 he is t...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Thanks everyone else for the updates! Rachel, I'm still thinking about pursuing the doula route in the future. I opted to not continue my Masters' program for now. I have to get L&D certification for my job within a year of hire, so I figured I'd focus on that for now...it's quite a bit of studying,...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Shann, I'm actually working in an OB clinic so I don't have time to miss it! :mrgreen: All of our patients are pregnant, so I help with rooming patients for ultrasounds and doing NSTs for our high risk patients. Also I assist with CVS and amniocentesis. And anyone that's in preterm labor or preeclam...

:hide Sneaking in for a look.... Yeah, yeah, I know I've been WAYYYYYY absent for too long. Just figuring out life, and now that the new year is here I plan to not be as tied up. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all, and hugs for all those having a rough go in the last few weeks. Nutshell: ...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I'm here, too. Sometimes I just browse and don't respond unless someone asks me a question, and other times I have time enough to post. Life for me is often too busy even to check my Facebook notifications, let alone scrolling through forums. That said, I GOT A NEW JOB!!! And we're moving again. :sh...

Re: Be a Better Writer--SOME THINGS ABOUT ADJECTIVES

I like the chart, too. I tend to err on the side of fewer commas so as not to interrupt the flow of my writing. Just personal preference, though.

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Great tidbits, Deejay. I love random trivia. :mrgreen: We're on the last leg of our journey to WA and back. Stayed the night here in Sacramento, and I have to work tonight, so Ryan will be doing the rest of the driving home. I'll try to nap during the boring parts of California. :lol: My niece and n...

Re: Be a Better Writer--LEARNING FROM CRITIQUE

Just as a side note, this story didn't place anywhere in the rankings. And I worked pretty hard on it before posting. So this is a great example of a "Huh?" moment when one thinks they have a good, solid piece and it just falls short. The standards are very high in the Challenge, and clearly there w...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Thanks, Shann, and congrats to Rachel!!! :superhappy No news is good news? I'm trying to remain positive. I may remain trapped in my job for awhile, if the drama escalates, so being negative about it doesn't help, for sure. On a better note, even though I dread going, once I'm there, I love my patie...

Re: Be a Better Writer--GIVING AND RECEIVING CRITIQUE

I'm sorry, Jan, for not seeing this before. I must have been super busy in my own life and away from FW at the time you posted this lesson.
