Things I need to learn the hard way over and over… by Deb Eileen

I don’t tan. This is not from a healthy-I’m-avoiding-too-much-sun-exposure- approach. This is due to a tragic lack of ability. If I were able to tan I would head out, slather up and turn my hide a nice toasty brown. My skin tone is more marshmallow than toasty. It isn’t from a lack of trying. In high school I wanted to have a tan for prom so I went every day…


False Starts and New Beginnings by Deb Mia

I’m one of those people that has a million ideas — for everything. I think I’m a closet wannabe inventor. For example, I came up with those little ear mittens before L.L. Bean did. Uh-huh. Really. I think that’s why writing suits me as it does — turns out I also have a million ideas for novels, short stories, screenplays, you name it. Of course, such things are also incredibly…

Just a few tiny words can change the meaning,…

The Winds of Change, A Very Serious Essay by Deb Kristy

So, this week’s topic was wind. The smart ass in me (oh, and that’s about 97%) was dying to write something pithy about breaking wind, but then I decided that my definition of “pithy” was more “eight-year-old boy potty humor” than sophisticatedly amusing and I scrapped it. So, what’s a Southerner left to blog about with a topic like that? Oh, yes, five bucks to you all. It is SO Gone…
