New Website

Well, in case you haven't noticed, we've got some big changes around here: a new web design complete with links up there and everything. That's right, I'm all high tech now. With a simple click you can read more than you ever wanted to know about me or see where else I am on the interwebs. Even my Facebook and Twitter accounts are all matching now. Ooh lala.

The cool thing about this design is that there's special meaning to the red stars up top and tribal pattern below, but I'll save that explanation for another day. For now, feel free to look around and tell me what you think. And if you do choose to follow me on FB or Twitter or whatever other social media thing I've listed under the contact page, I'll follow you back.

I almost forgot to announce the winner of my 300 follower celebration from a couple weeks back. So who gets a 10-page critique from me? --everyone who asked for one. Yipee! So Jaybird, Connie, Suzanne, Leigh and Tammy...send your 10 pages over to me whenever you're ready. There's no expiration for this offer, so just send it when it's best for you. My email is under the contact tab above. Yay!

I'm feeling kind of zen today, so I'll leave you with a song from one of my favorite music-to-read-to artists, Dustin O'Halloran. Ahh, life is good.
