Assholes, ducklings and the end of the universe
Courtesy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Image /Flickr The universe is dying. I mean, there's probably a few billion years before lights out, but still. The universe may or may not be endless and infinite, but it's definitely not eternal.  And the scientists a...

Magical waterfalls, hazy brains and Paul Rudd
Rainbow Falls on Gorge Trail, Watkins Glen. So I've been in kind of a contemplative mode lately (But, "Sue," you say, "you're kind of always in a contemplative mode ... remember that time you contemplated the layers of filth on your kitchen floor? Or that o...

That time I went pole dancing in New York (and other stories)
Photo courtesy of Kenny Louie /Flickr A while back one of my best friends from high school suggested a girl's weekend. I figured I'd go down to Virginia where she lives for an overnight. We could go to a yoga class, grab dinner, chat until the wee hours abo...

Wannabe novelist ISO ambivalence and full-body foot skin
Photo courtesy of Ann Toal /Flickr Back in January I wrote about how prepared for rejection I was. I've had three decades worth of experience to draw from. Rejection of all flora and fauna. A veritable ecosystem of "I like you, buts" and "I'm sorry to infor...

Paint your carpets!
I assumed that the worst decision Lily would make today was when she turned the hose on me as I opened the sunroom door, spraying water into the house while giggling manically then racing away with the hose still at full blast as I yelled at her to stop. I ...

Just eat the banana
Photo courtesy of Richard North /Flickr I need a victory. Something I can hoist myself up on and stand atop arms waving wildly like Rocky on the art museum steps. Although preferably, no stairs. I don't have the stamina for stairs. But I would like the opti...

Turned inside out by 'Inside Out'
Courtesy of Disney Pixar Brad and I took the girls to see "Inside Out" this weekend (Or, as Lily prefers, "Disney Pixar's Inside Out." She insists on using the long-form because it's what she's been hearing on Disney Junior for the past couple months. She m...

Dear writing, it's not you, it's me
Writing has been a challenge these days.  OK. Well. That's not quite true. Writing has always been a challenge. But one that I'd always welcomed.  But I have not welcomed the challenge recently. Recently, the ideas have been there but the will has not. The ...

Taking the fingers out of my ears

That time Fern met Sam
Photo courtesy of USFWS Mountain-Prairie /Flickr A  week or two ago I was on the Twitter cyber-stalking agents in hopes of finding a shepherd for my novel. I found the hashtag #MSWL, where agents post about the types of manuscripts they're looking for.  As ...

Remembering Farmer Jim, esquire
Last August I received one of the hardest writing assignments of my short and rather undistinguished career.  In May, my friend Jim was diagnosed with  acute myeloid Leukemia. By August, it seemed he was having more bad days than good. His wife, Kristi, ask...

Story
Tagline
Mom. Journalist. Blogger. Wannabe novelist.
Introduction
When I'm not feeding, clothing, bathing, changing, entertaining and otherwise raising my two little girls, I write for my local newspaper, blog for various websites and make up increasingly lame reasons for why I'm not finishing my novel.

Bragging rights
In sixth grade I took first place in a speed jumping contest. To this day it is the only blue ribbon I have for sporting pursuits.
