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...

oy! how boring!

my blog that is. i can tell i've been away. so how about some random thoughts to keep you entertained?

^^ why is it easier to write a 26,000 word story than the one i'm supposed to be working on? is it because it's a first draft and i love first drafts? all those words just poured out of me in 3 days. tired hands.

^^ now that the neighbor's dog has mostly calmed down at night, my own dog is yowling for attention. the joys of having a puppy in the house.

^^ my brain is still too tired from sleep deprivation to figure out the current scene in my sequel. pardon my complaining.

^^ one of my new writing friends has asked me to be a beta reader. the thought is exciting and a little daunting. good thing i'm *not* working much on my sequel.

^^ my friend told me that having hot flashes is like having your own personal summer. what an apt description of what i'm going thru. too bad it's also summer outside.

^^ i think my brain is done. time to go to bed.

Ah, so you didn't shoot the dog! Well, the neighbors may yet bring you coffee :)

Beta reading is exciting. I do it a lot. Some might say I'm addicted.

My sister hates me; she's three years younger and been in menopause for a long time. Me, not really (waves fan at face). Its the wine; keeps me young.

Good luck with the read and the rewrites.
