Thirteen things about preparing for Pennsic   Pennsic is a two week long medieval encampment where people can take classes, fight in battles, just have all sorts of fun.  It’s hard to describe because there is so much to do that every Pennsic is different…you have the people who relax and read or nap all day and party all night, the people who get up early to spend the day shooting archery…everything.  http://www.pennsicwar.org/penn41/   …

Thirteen Things about things I’d like to stop doing1. Cursing so much. I used to like the irony, sweet faced girl, curses like a sailor, and because I’m such a wordie, I tend to like to express myself viciously when I’m annoyed, in pain, going for laughs.

Thirteen Things about being a writerIn celebration of earning my ISBN, I’ve decided my Thursday Thirteen should be “13 reasons why I love being a writer.” 1. I get to tell stories. I honestly cannot remember a time when I wasn’t telling myself a story. I’d make up stories about my dolls being princess-spies, I’d make up adventures to get me to sleep…and I still do.

Thirteen Things about Places I want to Visit 1. The Highlands of Scotland. It’s part of my heritage, and I find everything about it so appealing…I’ve always been big on windswept crags.
