My Ramblings

“I find that when you have a real interest in life and a curious life, that sleep is not the most important thing.” ~Martha Stewart~ Martha Stewart is celebrating her 500th show today! She brought back Bill Clinton, which was great. I love him and all that he is doing to make a difference. I remember when he show started back in what 2005. I was excited. I also remember when Ellen's show started. She did that whole Justin Timberlake thing to get him on her show. Was it 2002 when her show started? Can't really remember, but I remember. I also think Jennifer Aniston was one of the first guests. I entered 1,000 word for Chase the Dream Contest. So, I accomplished one goal for this week! Yah me:) I just need to figure out which next 1,000 words I will send next week. I buy a copy of Woman's World every week, there are some weeks I miss it, but my neighbor, Jerri, she buys them as well. She's the one who got me hooked on these magazines. They have this beautiful Angles Story in the magazine. It's where someone has touched your life whether they are gone or still here. It's beautiful. They have a section Boy was my Face Red! It's really funny to read, because who can't relate to that!! But the very first thing I flip to every week is the Romantic Fiction page and read that first. I love these stories. So much happens in 800 short words. I never really thought about writing a short piece for this magazine. But one of my Yahoo groups got talking about this and I love these storied, I thought I might give it a try. I emailed them this morning and just a few minutes ago I received a copy of their submission guidelines. They pay really well too, might as well say one dollar per word. If your 800 word story is published you earn 800 dollars. It's going to be a challange for me. As you can tell by my posts, I really write a lot and have a lot to say. My column still isn't up yet, no biggie. Sometimes it's a couple of days into the month before it does go up. The girls have a lot of editing and columns and reviews and interviews to post. So within the next couple of days I look for it being up and ready. I finished reading two great books last week, I will be writing a review for Fresh Fiction as well for these books. Millionaire's Secret Seduction BY Jennifer Lewis and The Man She Married BY Ann DeFee. I recommend them as a great read. They were January releases so I would buy them at before they run out. If you noticed to the right I added some features, my TBRP for 09, and Author Spotlight Days. This Saturday will be Jennifer Lewis. I'm really excited about that. She's a great writer and has a new release in March, which will be featured this Saturday and on my March column. Tonight is a good night for TV, well at least one show I can think of. CSI:Miami is back with a new episode. It looks really intense and there was a rumor that Kalli Ducane would die off the show. I think it might be real from what tonights show has in store for us. It comes on at 10:00PM, you should really check it out. I'm still floating on cloud 9 with my Superbowl Victory! Okay, well I guess it really wasn't me who won it. But you know what I mean! Can't wait for next season, but I do have something to keep me occupied. NASCAR starts next weekend. Daytona 500, February 15. Go Dale JR.




  1. I still can't believe Pittsburgh won!!! I just knew we were going to lose when the Cardinals got that touchdown gaining 3 points on us.

    I have never read a copy of Woman's World. With the Romantic Fiction it sounds really good, I might have to get a copy of it.

    Not so much of a racing fan, but my DH is a huge fan...Carl Edwards number 99 is his pick.

  2. Carl Edwards would be my second pick. I seriously thought he would win the cup last year, it was close, but Jimmie Johnson, 48, won!!
