welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

i finally remembered...

i had planned to do a random question blog post - just questions that floated into my head, but i forgot what some of them were, until now, when it's 2 am and i should be in bed

1. why do story ideas come to me in the middle of the night?

2. if it's going to rob me of sleep, why won't my brain give me ideas that have to do with my current WIP?

3. in rush hour traffic, why do more cars move after the light has turned red again?

4. why do Phoenix drivers slow down when it rains?

5. when it rains, why does my dog decide she's not going to go outside to do her business?

6. is the Loch Ness monster real?

7. was there really an Atlantis?

8. why did i ask for a fancy mixer for xmas 2 years ago and i haven't used it? was i an Alton Brown wannabe?

9. back in the 1920's, what did the first user of my antique secretary think about? could she have imagined that a computer sits on it now?

10. why did it take me so long to discover that i love to write?

11. why do i love to write when it makes me get up at 2 AM with story ideas?
