For all of you serious writers out there, I offer you this link to a very informative lesson on lines of various length!

When you have completed reading that helpful blog post, please return here, and tell me (and my millions of followers) if you learned anything new about lines.
That’s the long and the short of it!
“Probably the fastest recovery in the history of lost dogs, but “Muffin’s” owner has been located and returned home!!! Thank you!!!!”
(The above update was an Actual Facebook post)
Muffin has been losing her mind with worry for over forty-five minutes. Her owner was last seen wearing a heavy parka, boots, gloves, and carrying a snow shovel.
Muffin tried giving the police a description of her owner, but all that came out of her mouth were barks and howls. The cops simply patted her little head and ignored the APB she offered.
At last, her owner heard her wailing over the sound of the snow plow going past. He came back inside Muffin’s home, only to be accosted by two men in blue. They ascertained this individual was truly Muffin’s owner and left the pair cuddling on the sofa, licking each other’s face. (ewww—gross!)
Another happy ending brought to you by “editing!”
WELL, FOLKS, WE’RE DOWN TO THE WIRE…
Waiting for the proof copy of my book, “Bosses and Blackjacks: A Tale of the ‘Bloody Fifth’ in Philadelphia.”
I’ve got other things to do with my life (as we all do), but all I can think of is the book!
I go from being giddy that I’ve accomplished this goal, to being sad that’s it’s almost done! From excited butterflies to nausea. I feel like I’m in a Twilight Zone episode where time stands still waiting for the big plot reveal!
While I wait…I thought I’d share the final cover art with you, my dear readers. Hopefully, it meets with your approval.
Amazon—here we come!
Autumn is the time of year when trees shake off their leaves, and reveal the homes they’ve been sheltering all spring and summer.
The eggs have all hatched. The babies have fledged. The parents have completed the care and feeding of the young.
The birds are all planning where they will spend the winter.
The aviary that is my backyard takes on a different look, with new visitors who will stay with me through frigid days and snowy nights for the next several months.
Another season of life to share.
THANK YOU TREES.
