What is takes to become a Writer:
W - Why do you do it. You have to know whether it's a dream, a goal, or because you just can't not write.
R - Realistic - Be realistic with yourself, so you don't stress or burn yourself out.
I - Imagination - This is the main thing I have going for me. Use yours.
T - Time - Will sacrifice that TV show?
E - Enjoyment and enthusiastic. It gets both because you need both.
R - Readers. First you have to be true to yourself then you have to be true to your readers. One of the greatest feeling is when you have some say, "I stayed up to three in the morning to finish it, and I loved it."

This months quote is from Albert Einstein:
Your imagination is the preview of life's coming attraction.
For me, it's more what's coming in my books, but I so love this.
Zucchini Brownies are in a book I haven't released yet, Survive the Night. But, since I have a plant going bonkers on producing, and I have been making them a lot lately, I decided to share the recipe now. They are also my favorite brownie. Much better than you're thinking.
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
8 Tbsp cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 cups peeled, grated zucchini
3 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup oil
nuts optional (I don't use because I share and too many people with allergies to them.)
Combine all the dry ingredients, stir in zucchini, coating it thoroughly. Add oil and vanilla. Mix well, spread in pan. Bake at 350 degrees. 20-24 minutes for jelly roll pan, 30-35 minutes for 9 x 13 pan. Good with Ice cream or on their own. Extremely moist. Hope you enjoy.
A quick apology, Sorry for not blogging. August got to be a busy month and I'm still recovering from it.
I moved my daughter's family out that was living with us; lost my mother-in-law which was a sad, blessing for she'd been failing for a while. My other daughter and grandson were here for the funeral, so I got to spend time with them. Plus school started, so back to work. And, to top everything off, I was really concentrating on edits on Beauty and the Chief, getting it ready for release which should be the middle of October. I'll give more on that later.
All and all, it was quite a month, but I'm getting back on track, so this week I will try to catch up on posts.
