On Writing…and Squirrels

DugDogFromUp
Recently, I was asked to join in a Writers’  Blog Hop and answer four specific questions about my writing and then introduce and invite three others to join along. Sounds easy, right? But the reality is, there are just way too many squirrels around these days….at least from where I’m standing.

Not only do I love Mary Engelbreit, but I love the way she thinks. Sharing a smile with all of my Writing and Blogging friends today.
