Quick and Hot August Thoughts

Happy August, everyone!
Here in the blistering, wildfire-laden state called Okla-hellma, the summer drones on like a penance from the devil for some unspeakably-unforgiving sin that we’ve committed. Then again, maybe it’s just Oklahoma summer as it’s always been and I’m merely less tolerant as the years pass by… Either way, I hope that your summer is coming to a fitful close. I’m waiting with baited breath for the chill of fall, the start of college football, and the hopeful expectation of cooler daily temperatures.


I just thought I would drop by to let you know that I’ve been enjoying some wonderful diversions to take my mind off the hot summer. Namely, I have seen fantastic films such as The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spiderman.

I’ve also enjoyed reading the Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James. Honestly, it was a great series and highly enjoyable erotic cotton candy for one’s imagination. A great escape…if you have a spare key handy, that is. *wink, wink*

An Article Worth Reading

Here’s a little tidbit that you need to check out if you’re an aspiring or newly-published author. It’s an excellent blog article titled “Ten Things No One Tells New Writers to Expect” by well-known author, Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy, who points out things every author should keep in mind if they want to tackle the world of writing and publishing. I highly recommend the article, and can attest to the accuracy of a number of points that Lee Ann mentions. I suppose that I’m still working on experiencing the other ones, but they sound logical. Check it out at the link below…


London 2012 Olympics


And, of course, I’ve been so happy watching some of the London Olympics coverage! Here’s a BIG shout-out to the wonderful USA women’s beach volleyball teams of Misty May & Keri Walsh and Jenn Kessy and April Ross! These wonderful, beautiful, and talented women have commanded the sand from the moment they stepped onto it. Lead-on to victory, ladies!


Okay, time to go! I hope that your summer wraps up nicely and you look out for those around you who may need a helping hand. After all, it could be you needing a hand someday.
