Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

The Sunshine Award!

I wanna thank my Husband, my Kids, my Mom...
What? Is it NOT that kind of award? Fine...
Here it is:
The Sunshine Award ;)
The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers.
The recipients of the Sunshine Award are “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.” The way the award works is this: thank the person who gave you the award, and link back to them. Then answer questions about yourself. Finally, select up to 10 of your favorite bloggers, link their blogs to your post, and let them know they have been awarded the Sunshine Award!
Thank you Jen Naumann for nominating me with The Sunshine Award!!!
Here are my answers:
-What inspired you to start blogging?
I thought it would be a great way of connecting with fellow authors and sharing my publishing journey with... I guess myself? I wasn't sure I'd get anyone reading this so I guess I also saw it as an outlet for any frustration I might encounter during this whole ordeal.

How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I figured my name was an easy one to remember for all my future readers???
Fingers tightly crossed that "ALL my future readers" doesn't consist of only my Mom and husband...

What is your favorite blog that you like to read?
Ohh, tough one... I guess right now I'm really enjoying The Writer Diaries, you should check it out. Well, not you Jen, you are a contributor... probably one of the reasons I like it :)

Tell about your dream job.
Ahhh... writing? Or Reading? Getting paid to do both would be awesome.

Is your glass half full or half empty?
I think it depends on the situation.... If it's for someone else half full, if it's for me? half empty, I'm full of self doubt and I like to prepare for the "worst" situations... Just in case, you just never know.

If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?
ANYWHERE! We are a little desperate for some adult only activity. Kids are awesome but they have a schedule and they come with their own set of guidelines that just don't cut it with us adults 24/7.
I would have said Hawaii or anywhere Caribbean but those include bathing suits, please... no.

What food can you absolutely not eat?
Veal. Don't judge, I just can't.

Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Milk, milk, milk!

How much time do you spend blogging?
Commenting more than actually posting... probably 3 hours or so a week.
Posting? About an hour... I'm working on improving my habits.

Do you watch TV – if so, what are some of your favorite shows?
Bwah hahha, do I? YES. I'm TV obsessed.
Let's see... I love The Walking Dead, Homeland, The Following, Sherlock Holmes, The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Grey's Anatomy, True Blood, and Matt Bomer White Collar.

Now to pass on the award, here are my nominees:
Al Diaz  


  1. Not judging - veal is disgusting!
    Congratulations on the award.
    And I won't tell you how much time I spend a day blogging...

  2. Thanks for the award! I'm excited about it and will find a time to do the post. I'll let you know. :)

    I love your answers. Reasons for posting, dream job, vacation and TV - what else is there to do in life?? Thanks again!

    1. Yes, let me know when you post your answers :)

  3. Well done SK, that's a great award - even the icon made me smile!Hang on in there on the children front, it is true that you blink and all of a sudden you're begging them to come and chat to you...

    1. Thank you.
      Oh, I'm not complaining, I LOVE spending time with the twins... I just need to spend a little time with the hubby too ;)

  4. Ooh thanks for the award! I'll probably put my answers up on Thursday.
    I'd also love to get paid for reading and writing, that'd be great :)

    1. You are welcome! I'll be looking for the answers :)

  5. Thank you S.K. for the nomination! Of course I am honored that you considered me for this award.

    I'm laughing because almost every TV show you watch...I do as well!As for veal...YUK! But worse than that is the ever popular sushi. I just don't get the whole eating raw fish trend?

    I'll post my answers as soon as I'm finished reading this fantastic new book I'm in the middle of right now :)

    1. Anytime!!!!
      TV rocks, I would probably DIE if I didn't have a DVR... either that or my kids would be all on their own lol

  6. Aww, thanks so much! I appreciate it! :)

  7. Congratulations on your award! Commenting does take time and so does watching White Collar - love that show!

  8. I almost missed it. Thank you for thinking on me, S.K.! Really appreciate it. :D

  9. Such an adorable Sunshine Award Emblem! So cute! And congratulations on your ninth Anniversary! Wishing you many, many more!
