That One Time I Created a Survey for My Readers (That Means You)

Ufta! Oh, my. The winds are blowing around Bedford Manor. It’s times like these I’m glad the FabFurFour are indoor cats. And just as the wind is blowing outside, the winds of change are sweeping on the inside.

First things first: Y’all may have noticed a few subtle changes lately. Yup. I done and did it. I streamlined my social media from @RealMojo68 to @MollyJoRealy. I figure it’s my name, it’s a good name (thanks, folks!), so why not use it? Also, I know you know, but it kinda helps people to find me easier … read the rest. . .

The Unemployment Cookbook: Slow Cooker Pork & ‘Kraut

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Y’all remember last month when New Inklings Press introduced their February #MediaMenagerie Member? [Phew, I double-dog dare ya to say that five times fast on a late Sunday evening.] Bridges the Raccoon was brought on board to help writers find a way to get from here to there . . . Whatever “here” and “there” is.

Well, this weekend, it was in the kitchen. And after a crazy usual month of go-here-see-there-stop-now-breathe-okay-get-going-again activity, I just needed a bit of a break. So I opened the fridge and pantry, and asked Bridges what he … read the rest. . .

That One Time I Remembered I’m a Writer

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Funerals and planes.

Yeaaahhhhh. We’re back to this again. But hold on! It’s a good thing. Honest! You know how sometimes the planets align or the flaming arrow flies through the rings or [okay, insert your own #itsasign metaphor here]? Well, that’s been happening.

First, it was about what was inside of me bubbling up, or as Caleb (affectionately known as John-Boy) and I like to toast with our sparkling ciders, “Effervesce, baby!”

That One Time I Created a Character Bio Template

by Molly Jo Realy @MollyJoRealy

Well, I thought I was sort of done with NOLA but the truth is (as so many of my writing peeps warned me), it’s only just begun. [Cue Carpenters’ music here.]

As y’all will recall (I hope) from a recent post, for a while there I forgot I was a writer. I mean, I was listening to so many others, and I was acting like a new student instead of a seasoned wordsmith. It took a little self-diagnosing to figure out the main problem was, well, me. *GASP* So not cool, right? Now here’s … read the rest. . .

That One Time I Learned How to Blog From My Phone

Okay. Seriously. I have a lot–I mean a lot-to tell y’all. There’s been some travel, some food indulgences, some Happy Planner MoJo, and of course, some writing.

And we’ll get to all of that. Soon. Like, this weekend when I can spread everything out and take awesome-possum photos for y’all while drinking some of that sweet tea I’m so utterly fond of.

But today I need to share with you something I hadn’t experienced before.

Now, I know it existed. But it was like an urban myth I hadn’t paid attention to.

You ready for this?

I’m blogging from.
