Happy Birthday Shakespeare

Today is Shakespeare’s birthday. I loved Romeo and Juliet – O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo…



MacBeth – Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

What’s your favorite?

Alice laughed…

Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”


 “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

-Alice in Wonderland.

I love this and if ever I was tempted to get a tattoo it would be a part of this quote.

Happy Birthday Sean Bean!

Today is Sean Bean’s birthday. You may recognize him as a “baddie” from many movies. Although he also played a character called Sharpe in a BBC mini-series – Sean at his finest. He has the most amazing voice.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
Whenever I’m writing an alpha male Brit, it’s his sexy voice I hear in my head. So happy birthday Mr. Sexy Voice! When you read a book, who do you picture for those unforgettable male characters?

NaNoWriMo Marathon April 13th

A big UGH! Not only did I forget yesterday was the writing marathon but by the time I remembered it was very late so I got a big ole’ goose egg for this one!  However – I did go on a walk for Autism to support a dear friend whose daughter has recently been diagnosed. And I went to the theater to see an interpretation of the Rite of Spring by Basil Twist. It was different. Interesting but different – I liked it.


Every November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short). The idea is to write 50,000 words in a month. I participated in 2012 and the end result put me well on the way to finishing my first novel which is now on Amazon – Lost in Shadow.

Now NaNoWriMo is hosting an all day writing marathon on Saturday, April 13. Hundreds of thousands of writers all around the world will be writing at the same time. I wonder what putting all that creativity out into the Universe will do?!

My personal goal is 5,000 words in one day!

Happy Productive Day!
