The Gambling Rambling Life
Evening purrs, my Saturday-frisky Felines... oh, the sunset on the tame prairie was a glorious melony pink and orange... the air today was unbelievably refreshing... the kind of autumn breezy lovely air this Big Cat dreams about... maybe, all the recent rains finally washed a lot of the nasty stuff out of the atmosphere... maows, this Big Cat hopes so... oh, Kittens, if the birds are flying south this early, which it appears some are doing... what kind of winter will it be?
Yesterday was a real ‘trip’ in a lot of ways... however, moi FINALLY got some good penning done on her short story WIP, Weightless. Oh, if only she can get it finished, within the word limit, and polished in time. Claws crossed.
Geez Louise, being an author for so many of us with a non-celeb career [and even the celebs], is like being a gambler in so many ways. Of course, most of us don’t get the glitz and ritz of being a professional gambler in Las Vegas... which brings to mind... how many are there? Some folks just have that ‘knowing’ of when to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em. Or, they have other ways of being successful at the tables, at the betting windows.
Yowls! As writers we take a chances all the time. Will the story being written now, the one we’ve devoted our precious limited time to, be accepted for publication. It can be the bestest book in the world, but will it sell? Meaning readers want what they want. As they should.
Yep, moi needs more pep, she’s chosen *The Gambling Rambling Life* of an author, or, to be more truthful, the rambling muses chose her.
12:12 am... oh, yeah, once again... SMACK!!! There it was.

Crazy Story Snippet
by Serena Shay
See, here’s my problem, I have this story with dragons, merfolk and humans all wrapped up in a jumble of a world that I’ve been building in my head for quite a while. Sounds like a great thing, right? Well, it is, and it isn’t. For some reason this story is highly resistant to plotting. Every time I sit down to plot it out, I draw a total blank. The dragons fly away and the merfolks swim deep into the lake. The humans, of course, mill around, as they are want to do.

Flirty Friday- What's he trying to tell you ?
by Dawne Prochilo
Have you ever met a person and tried to figure out their body language? I must admit it happens daily to me. I'm a people watcher and love to make up creative reasons as to what their life is about. And watching their faces, hand gestures and body language tells a story of its own.
KitKats, this is a wonderful TRAVELOGUE... bound on over!
A cold and scenic travelogue
The other day, my husband and I met up with a friend from western NY and
took off for a full day of riding on our Harleys. I've captured the
highlights of the trip on my blog over two posts. Pop by if you're
interested in the local scenery of western NY and PA.

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 635 ~
Sylva felt hope rise like a fast ride on an elevator. And before she knew it, Zeke propelled her toward huge panel doors that slid open for them. “You keep a watch on that little wife of yours, son, and contact the ranch. I’ll round up the crew and get the transports fired up for flyin’.” Her cowboy eased his arm around her comfortably. “Count on it, dad.” Soon they descended inside a large pod. After several long winding turns, the door hummed open and Sylva saw an immense area filled with all sorts of the flight crafts and vehicles.
Zeke gazed around, cautious as a stallion in unknown territory. He wasn’t at all certain danger didn’t lurk like a hungry puma. Still, his gut was saying ‘go home’. And, he knew his Sylva needed time to recuperate and adjust to their marriage. Hell on high, so did he. Glancing down at her face before moving them forward, he gave her a confidant grin. “Stick with me, darlin’ mine. We got lots of honeymoon time due us. And, I bet the family’s been plannin’ a real rootin’ tootin’ BBQ.” She smiled, her eyes lighting up like the bright blue sky.
