Hi there! Thank you for stopping by. I hope you can stay for a while. I’ll pour us a couple of glasses of wine. We can sit outside in the porch swing and have a chat while listening to the cicadas sing their summertime serenade.
I’m Carol and a Mississippi girl, with part of my heart up north where there’s zero humidity and lots o’ rocks to climb/scramble and trails to hike; more of a possibility of snow in the winter. Skiing… But Home for me is wherever my mom and daughter are. As long as we’re together, I’m Home. ;)
I’m a roaming photographer in search of new experiences, new sights, new vision. Toting around my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 (not a bad quality digital camera for the inexpensive price), and dreaming of one day owning a Canon EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Digital Camera.
More so, I’m a writer, and have been since I learned how to write. Before that, I was a storyteller. I would set my dolls and stuffed animals in front of me and I would make up stories to tell them as well as sing them songs I made up.
I am currently working on the first book in a series. I had started books 1 and 2 and then had a dream which led to a new beginning, so a different book 1 but honestly feel it should come later after books 1, 2 and 3, sort of like the movie “The Hobbit” came out years after “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. It’s the back story before the story.
I’m also working on a piece of nonfiction but recently put it on the shelf to focus more fully on my YA series I just mentioned. I’m a WAHM (work at home mom), plus running after a busy teenager, plus cooking meals, plus walking dogs for what seems like every 30 minutes, and… and… and…
I’m a seeker. Always looking for my purposes. Always seeking…
I blog on a variety of topics. Just a few are: Creative writing, the Bible/God/Jesus & Spirituality, Nano (Nanowrimo), cooking, baking, photography, road trips/travel, my sweet family, our silly furballs, living in the countryside, and life in general.
I had been obsessed with a new YouTube video project (as I’ve spoken about earlier in my blog) and I will be updating regarding this if I ever get a free moment to actually take part in this new experiment. I planned to get this started by Nov 1, 2014. Life happens and currently, I am working more on my novel, so putting this on the shelf, as well. Family first. Then work. Then writing. Then everything else.
I post to Pulse on LinkedIn.
My photography has been used by Esper Media.
I answer questions on Yahoo Answers. Here’s one.
