You know you're a shitty blogger when...

it takes you TEN FRIGGIN MINUTES TO FIGURE OUT/REMEMBER HOW TO MAKE A NEW POST!!!!!! arrrrgggghhhhhh grrrrrrrrr

Sheesh. For serious. I could not figure out for the life of me how to post. So, so sad (turns out I had to sign out and sign back in. WHY? WHY???? #^$#^**% technology + me = I totally get how overwhelmed my grandmother felt when microwaves first came out!)

But, since one of my New Year's resolutions is to get back to bloggin' (and twitterin') and tryin' to stay more connected to those out in the social media world, I figured I'd start here.

Not sure what I'll be ramblin' about (perhaps I'll do a post on my affinity to adding the g to those "ing" words. What is that about?), but I just love that top picture thingy on my blog (See? Don't even know what it's called!). Besides, I paid like $60 smackers for it, so gosh dang it, I'm going to enjoy it and so are you.

FYI, I just finished my fourth novel, which is currently titled Blame it on Plato. It's a YA Romance Thriller pitched as Pretty Little Liars meets Scream. I'm excited to start querying this thing and get on to my next book which will be more of a thriller/horror type story.

Hope all is well with you and PLEEEEEASE tell me all the good news (or bad or sad or indifferent) that has been going on with you.




  1. Hey Mel, glad you're back! I don't mean to laugh at your frustration, but this post did make smile! That image thing is called a header :) And yours is pretty!

    Your book sounds AWESOME. We need more YA Thrillers for sure, and the title is kick ass. I can never come up with cool titles. I wish you the best of luck in querying, and yay for coming back to the blogs!

  2. Hi Mel! I'm trying to get back into blogging too. I took a break during NaNoWriMo which extended throughout December and into January. Whoops!How awesome that you're ready to query. Good luck!

  3. Haha, I join you in shitty blogger sisterhood! I'm adding my goodreads reviews to my blog just to have something resembling consistency

    Good luck, query buddy!

  4. Hey Mel, glad to see you're back. Good luck with the queries. Im trying to figure this bleepin bloggin' thin' out myself

  5. Good Gawd, Mel, where you been?

    Okay, I make shitty blogging my habit. Write for yourself, not for the public. It's cheaper than a therapist. Doesn't matter how dumb the content is. Start with something that happened to you, something that's bugging you, and run with it! You're funny enough (liked the grandmother and microwave snafu!) to make it interesting.

    Good luck on querying. And (twiddles thumbs, switches eyes side to side and sighs) I'm waiting to read your book!


  6. Hey guys! Thanks for the welcome back(s). Okay, you know you're old when the theme song to Welcome back Kotter comes to your mind whenever you see/hear welcome back. *snort*

    Sage! Query bud. Gah, about to ride that train again. I hope this time there is someone to pick me up at the station. ;)

    Unknown, thanks! But uh...who are you? LOL :D You are all mysterious and have me very curious!

    Chey! I'm always so glad to see you stop by and to stop by your blog! Huggles!

    Susie, 2 months is not that much of a break, but it is enough time to lose some followers. Oh wells, ONWARD, UPWARD, AND BLOGWARD!
