Update

Well, that was a grand start, wasn’t it? One introduction and one review, and then I disappeared. I guess you all know how it is sometimes  – wonderful Thanksgiving and family, followed by sickness, the chaos of dirty laundry and dirtier dishes, and the hamster wheel of trying to make enough money.  I’m back now. There are still smelly clothes and a messy kitchen, but they’re back under control. Mostly I’ve been trying to make a decent salary through freelance work, primarily through livework.com. So far, I feel like I’ve hardly made any money, and I’ve worked pretty hard. However, my work speed is getting much faster. Hopefully in another week or two I’ll work fast enough for it to be worthwhile. Meanwhile, I intend to be writing here every couple of days, especially since I’ve got a backlog of reviews to write –“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” (depressing), “Tangled” (cute) and the last two books of Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion trilogy (thought-provoking).

I hope you’ve got something to look forward to!

50 Days of Writing

I’m afraid I’ve always wanted to write, but never had the guts to really try it.  Until now that is.  They say you can live off your writing, if . . .

But who wants the “if?”  I’ve got multiple projects in the air for the next couple of months, but this blog will be my basic, go-to place.  I read constantly, so you will find reviews here of books new and old.  I’ll also review any movies I see.  I like to consider my tastes “eclectic,” which keeps life from ever being boring.  (Others see my book and movie choices as “strange” or just “weird,” and a cause of mental whiplash, but who can account for taste?)

So, without further ado, I give you (drumroll, please) Book Review #1!
