Okay, so there really is no time to blog but I do keep a list of things I might blog about and thought I would share that in lieu of an update. In no particular order here are 17 things I will probably blog about when I have the time to blog again.


  1. Some books like WRITING IN FLOW: Keys to Enhanced Creativity, by Susan K. Perry, Ph.D. and THE FOUR AGREEMENTS by don Miguel Ruiz and maybe even the ones I'm supposed to be writing.
  2. Paint samples and the color blue and why I hate tile.
  3. My office overhaul and my fear of change fighting with my need to be in control fighting with (I hope not) the decorator bringing designs for review on Wednesday.
  4. My dog who used to like people a little more than she does now.
  5. Going on the Native Garden tour 2 weeks ago and working on my garden design and why I can't have the swing I want in the backyard.
  6. My four day work week.
  7. Sleep (ain't it great?)
  8. Fear of being a poet (Fred and Liz - I am claiming it already, really!)
  9. Bosses and the lack of and its effect on my environment.
  10. How to lose a phone.
  11. Wikis (as in Wikipedia but in my case, pbwiki and wikispaces and more)
  12. Biscuits.
  13. Getting to meet Kerry Madden (okay, so I totally never blogged about meeting Libba Bray and Shannon Hale, nor did I share pictures but I am meeting Kerry tomorrow night and will hope to blog about it.)
  14. Scrabulous (My name is Susan and I'm addicted to Scrabulous)
  15. Letting go of worrying about your kids (ha - don't expect this to be a how to)
  16. Journals and notebooks and pens and other office supply obsessions
  17. Rituals for writing

You're one of the people I referred to yesterday.

I'm glad I can enable you.

Re: My name is Susan and I'm addicted to Scrabulous
Just keep it coming, please. I get cranky without my Scrabulous games. :-)

Looking forward to all those things, especially numbers 2,3,9 and 17 :)

Thanks! At least I can cross #10 off the list since I found the phone!

I'd love to hear about your rituals for writing, your paint samples, your office overhaul....

It'll be so worth it in the end.

Thank you. The rituals was going to be a short post and then I did some research and one thing led to another...well you know how that goes. :-)

I really liked Writing In Flow, but then my background's in educational psychology and creativity. I actually met Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, who developed the concept of flow, when he came to speak at my university back in the 90s--he was such a powerful speaker and quite a gentleman, too. I'll be really interested to know what you think about it--along with anything else you wish to blog about!

Oh wow! I had no idea that was your background. And you got to met Mihaly! I bought his book first, ages ago, before I was ready for it. I read it but didn't get it, you know what I mean? The I bought Writing In Flow , started to read it and had to put it aside because I don't think I was ready to absorb the words. This time though, so many things connected for me.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
