My late basenji, Banner. He says, you're not weird, Mom!

My late basenji, Banner. He says, you’re not weird, Mom!

Here’s the fourth way in which I may be weird–or not.

I don’t want to look like any of the “Real” housewives.

I think I’d rather grow old gracefully than look like one of these women. There’s something hard and fake about their looks, like they all came from the same mold.

Is this: You are crazy, Karin! They are (not) ageing with style!

Moderately weird: I can see your point, but I’d rather look like them than most women that age.

Or: You hit the nail on the head! They all look like they came from the same Barbie factory. My crows feet give character!

Ok! Let me have it! Am I weird or what?

Yummy at Halloween! Disgusting at any other time!

Yummy at Halloween! Disgusting at any other time!

Weirdness number three I detest candy corn except in the days immediately around Halloween.

Is that: way weird! If you hate something at one time, you should always hate it!

Moderately off: I go either way on that.

Or: you got the right idea! There are all kinds of things I only like at certain times of the year!

What do you think? Weird or what?

Things Ranger "says."

Things Ranger “says.”

In order to discover how weird I am. Here’s question 2.

I talk to my dogs and sometimes I answer in their “voice.”

Is this: a ten on the weird things to do scale! You are crazy, woman!

Moderately Weird: I don’t do it, but I would associate with people who did.

Totally normal: All dog owners do this! It would be weird if you didn’t!

Drop me a comment and let me know how weird (or not) I am!

In order to discover how weird I am. (And I suspect I’m pretty darn weird) I’ve decided to ask a bunch of questions over the next few weeks. I’d love to see some answers in the comments.

My belief number one: Life is too short to fold underwear.

Am I way off base? Of course, every piece of clothing should be folded.

Moderately correct? I always do it if time permits.

Or Right on? I’d rather have that five-ten minutes for something else.

Ok? What do you think? Let me know how weird I am?

Shiny things week of July 20
The things that consume me this week.
1. Teen Wolf. I love this show. The characters are great (and oh, so pretty). The conflicts are engrossing and episodes are full of moments of awesome. Thank God for summer seasons!

2. San Antonio. I’m heading to Texas to attend the Romance Writers of America National Conference. I will be signing copies of my new book ENTITY MINE at the Literacy signing, which is open to the public. Here’s the deets from the RWA website:

***At the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing, hundreds of romance authors meet with and sign books for fans, with the proceeds from book sales going to literacy organizations. Since 1990, RWA has raised more than $825,000 to fight illiteracy.

The 2014 “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing will be on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel in the 3rd floor ballroom.

This year, proceeds from the Literacy Autographing will benefit ProLiteracy Worldwide, Literacy Texas, Restore Education, and Each One Teach One San Antonio.

Spread the word about the Literacy Autographing!

Share the event on Facebook
Tweet about it (#RWA14)
Reply “yes” to the event on Goodreads
Questions may be e-mailed to literacy@rwa.org.***

If you’re in San Antonio, stop by the signing and see me. We can talk books, Teen Wolf or Supernatural, dogs or whatever. I usually have chocolate to share!

What’s distracting you this week?

Does Thumper’s mom’s advice still hold true? May 7, 2014

I’ve been away from blogging due to illness, but I’ve been reading blogs, and recently I read a writing centered blog where a bunch of novels were disparaged. Now, everyone has a right to theit opinion, but reading that I wondered if Thumper’s mother’s advice no longer applies. Remember, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all?”

This was the guiding principal of my childhood, and I’ve said it to my children. While, it has it’s flaws (the squeaky wheel gets the grease, etc.)
I believe spreading positive messages rather than negative is good for the both the person doing the praising and the people around her.

I suppose, of course, me even starting this conversation flys in the face of this aphorism, but I think blogging has in someways licensed us in the opposite direction. Not only do we express very negative thoughts, but we are encouraged to do it. The nature of people is such that various rants and alarms get more clicks, than expressions of gratitude and good tidings.

What do you think? Is Thumper’s mother’s advice still valid? Or is it an outdated concept we should stop advocating?
