Susan, you give me such hope! That sounds spectacular.

Hah! I didn't send any to your house, Jane, but if I thought it would work, I'd send them somewhere. What a novel way to get rid of weeds. I'll have to try that. I often pour vinegar on mine, but I wouldn't try that too close to plants you want to flourish.

by Kris Neri, with the Femmes Fatales When it comes to gardening, I’m one of those people who loves the outcome, but not the process. Flowers, not dirty fingers. Sadly, it usually requires some of the latter if you want... Continue reading

Kate, thanks for your take on this unprecedented time. I also walk dogs, and I probably hike more now than before, but then, there's less to do. I also miss live writing meetings, too. So much.

Another thought...Mark, I hope you're not forgetting to take weekends off!

Me too, Mark. I think I've checked the calendar more now to see what day it is, than when I really had a need to keep up with everything I'd scheduled before.

By Kris Neri, of the Femmes Fatales Is the passage of time real or just a human construct? A construct, of course! Fact—not fantasy. All the scientists whose voices I hear in my head confirm that. As a writer, I... Continue reading

by Kris Neri, with the Femmes Fatales Readers often ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” The question is actually meant to be flattering. They mean the plotting of a writer’s novel is so unexpected and clever, they wonder how... Continue reading

The pressure some people feel can get pretty silly, Mark.

I also haven't read Y yet, and probably won't for a while. I'm of two-minds. While I wish Sue could have completed Z and had a "What's next?" time in her life, I suppose I like thinking that Kinsey doesn't have an ending, that we can imagine her living her life and having further adventures, even if we don't know about them.

Susan, what a really tragic story. That poor woman. The memory her daughter has to live with is also sad.

Mark, what a nuisance! Why should you have to sort through that every day?
