Hope you have a great holiday season with Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.
First, last clichés:
Three-ring circus—an event of utter confusion. This is an Americanism that started in the late 19th century, alluding to a circus in which three rings or arenas are featuring performances at the same time. Probably invented by P. T. Barnum. The term was transferred to other extravagant events and disorderly situations by about 1900. Rudyard Kipling used it in A Diversity of Creatures (1914).
Have another guess coming—Be mistaken or wrong. This cliché also implies that though one is wrong, one has a chance to reconsider and correct one’s error. Dates from the first half of the 1900s. D. Day Lewis used it in Child of Misfortune (1939).
Hope you enjoy trying to find the clichés.
Now that my second book Vanity Killed is out, what do I do next?
Well, I have my hands full with working on my third book. Also, I will be reading from Vanity Killed at my Society of Southwestern Authors/Santa Cruz Valley Chapter’s 9th Annual Local Authors’ Showcase. It is a luncheon held on Saturday, January 16, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Desert Hills Lutheran Church in Green Valley, Arizona. Eight local authors will read from their works of fiction, memoir, humor, and poetry. Also, there will be a delicious catered lunch and door prizes.
I will hopefully also be working with a musician and putting my reading to music for another event.
Day in, day out, I write on something. I try not to be my own worst enemy and procrastinate on writing, but write, even if it doesn’t make any sense at the time. My third book, Birthmark is coming along.
Please, all of you keep writing!
Until next time,
