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...

where's the freakin' wrecking ball?

when you need it? who else would like to take a sledge hammer to their work in progress? or maybe to the wall that seems to creep up of its own volition?

heh! sledgehammer...more like a lighter...I'd like to watch it burn...then print it out again and start all over. lol

Christine H said...

Me! Me! I have hardly written at all the past week and a half because I'm so frustrated.

Wow, I can't believe YOU used the word "freakin'." You must REALLY be upset!

Donna Hole said...

Yeah, that about sums it up!

I should be happy right now that the e-zine has asked for another re-write on the short story I sent them. I mean; its possible publication, right? I think I was happier with the story before I shopped it.

Go figure.

Percussive maintenance always works for me.

Looking forward to your Movie Dirty Dozen on Monday!

Babydoll - i just can't burn it. thinking about all that paper i'd waste.

Christine - yes, i used Freakin'. don't make me use the other word.

Donna - that does seem to happen - make the story what someone else wants and it loses something.

Alex - percussive maintenance - i like that. and thanks for the reminder. i'll get to work on that now.
