Q is for Quality

I find it interesting that the first definition of Quality is a comparison. It’s Better than. It’s no wonder so many are concerned with the opinion of others. However the second definition is about a Distinctive attribute…that which makes it different.

P – Pools & Persnickety Pursuit

…and because it’s fun, a reprise of my 2013 A to Z post: Persnickety Pursuit Penelope, though pretty, was particularly picky and perused the proffered products at Pittsburgh’s Provincial Plaza with practiced precision to procure the perfect pair of pumps. She persisted in poking and prodding prolific piles of plastic…

P is for Pathetic – Selfie Science?

I really try to look on the bright side and share the good stuff, but I can’t help it. I must rant for a moment. It’s a pretty and cute rant… *sighs* Flattering Selfie Angle Science. Okay…?

O is for Opinions – Brain Prosthesis & Our Future

Artwork: Humana Mechanica -We Build From and To the Stars, by Sheri Walton Kennedy – Here are my notes with some of the thoughts and opinions from:”Brain Prosthesis and Mind Control.”
Panelists: David Shoemaker, PJ Manney, Jake McKinzie

N is for New Knowledge – Fine Art of Description

The panels at Norwescon are full of good advice and creative ideas. One panel packed with great tips was The Fine Art of Description. I especially appreciated the section on layering description. Here’s what experienced and professional authors recommend:

M is for Marvelous – Norwescon

Norwescon is Marvelous in the old-fashioned sense of the term. Marvels await around every turn. I spend most of my time in panels and workshops, honing writing skills, exchanging ideas, listening to readings by incredible authors and speculating on what the future holds. I also like to attend…

L is for Livingstone

But of course looks aren’t everything and in books, they matter little at all. We all want to know her. Who is this young woman anyway? So here’s a passage from Book I – Journey Key, that introduces you well to the ‘witty’ Miss Livingstone on her first ‘unwitting’ journey:

K is for Kindred Spirits

Thanks for celebrating my book launch with me…Photo is vintage 1934 from the Archives of the Likness family. The gal on the left is my mom, and the son of the gal on the right sent me this photo after he found some photos I had posted from the same era tagged with my mom’s name. He searched for her name from where it was written on the back of this photo and he contacted me from info on my blog. I was able to send him a few more from the old Vancouver, B.C. neighborhood where our grandparents and parents lived in the early ’30s. And he sent me this one and some others. Such random wonders and serendipitous connections come from the www.

I is for Interesting – or Snerklesome, perhaps

Snerklesome: Snarky Nerdy Smirkable in a Well-rounded Thought-provoking package. Like a groan is to a pun, snerklesome is to a post. A snickered-snort through the nose with a long nod that carries the mind to a satisfying something else.

H is for Hello!

I’m curious but not nosy, intellectual but not a brainiac, active but not an athlete, and an artist through and through. I’m definitely an introvert, but in the last several years I’ve come to appreciate community, and being a active part of one has helped me thrive. Blogging is much about community for me too. I love connecting with people all over the world.

G is for Giggles – Character Sketch

It was tough to choose a photo to represent Janie. Pretty but never coy, smart but sensitive, savvy but down-to-earth. Her blonde hair and blue eyes prove hard to find in vintage photos, which makes me wonder just how much blonde currently comes out of bottles? So the best I could do turned out to be some Mary Pickford photos.
Here’s a peek at Janie’s character, with a snippet from The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone: Book II – Memory Key. Coming October 2017:
