Be on the lookout for new polymer clay sculptures & drawings & paintings as I get settled into the new apartment 🙂 I will also keep writing, of course. I’m just spreading my creative wings once again.


Reflections AJ Mullican There it was. The mirror that Mummy and Daddy hid in the attic. They’d told Jane she must never play with it, for it was old and heavy and might fall on her. Much too dangerous for a child. Jane’s nanny had fallen asleep, and Jane had snuck into the attic to […]

Wedded Bliss

Wedded Bliss AJ Mullican Mara stood in front of the mirror, checking every last detail. Makeup: perfect. Hair: glorious. Cleavage: hell yes. Just one final touch before she could go downstairs. The veil. She’d been waiting for this wedding her whole life. From a tender young age, her mother had told her stories of how […]

Dark and silent

The new apartment is much more spacious than our last, but it’s definitely in need of nightlights or something. I also need to find the extra lamp I have, so I don’t have to use the bathroom light to see in the guest bedroom/craft room. Once the sun comes up it shouldn’t be too bad, […]

Moved on up to the west side

Almost everything is moved (we left most of the cleaning supplies at the old place to clean up for the walk through). A considerable amount is unpacked thanks to #booksbyliz and we’re about to go find some foodstuffs before we crash. Tomorrow is clean clean clean and maybe more unpacking and rearranging. Back to our […]

Hemingwaying it

I’ll admit: I’ve been drinking this evening. I got a another thousand or so words added to my work in progress, which is great. Unfortunately, I still hit a road block. I’m not meeting even half of the word count requirement for this to be a novel. Sure, I could make it a novella, but […]

Morning musings

To get the laptop out for an hour or to procrastinate a little more? It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s the question I’m facing right now. Most mornings, I wake up hours before I have to get ready for work, giving me ample time to get some much-needed writing done. However, this morning I have to […]


Plugging along on my novel. I’ve gotten another couple thousand words written in the last couple of days. It’s going to be difficult to get much more written in the next week, because what I really need to be doing is getting ready for our move across town. I’ll be glad when it’s over, but […]
