About the Blog

Welcome!  This blog is all about writing:  The novels I’m working on, the research that compels and inspires me, the nitty gritty of grammar, linguistics, syntax and all those little nuts & bolts of writing the English language (I also try to credit any image I use wherever possible; if you come across an image and know the source though it’s missing from my site, please let me know so that proper credit can be given.).  I’d love to hook up with other writers, especially those who struggle with the ways of writing; as an English teacher for adults, I’m not only aware of the pitfalls of the language, but of the tendency for the nuts & bolts to get rusty, come loose, or get lost altogether.

I have a wide variety of interests, and maintain a few other blogs, so if you’re interested, please check out the “personal links” to the right:  History Undusted is just that – anything to do with history, especially the obscure bits; Candle & Quill is my site for spiritual musings, devotionals, and the like; CuppaNatter is my recipe site – I don’t attempt to compete with professional sites, but all of these recipes are “tried and true” in my home and are often recipes that guests request (so I just put them up there and give them the link – and I know where to find them in future!).

In the real world I don’t have time for a job outside of the home!  I’m a writer, author, editor, translator (German to English), vocal coach for bands, singing teacher, English teacher for adults, household manager, and all-rounder!

  3. Hi Stephanie.

    I am now Following ALL FOUR of your Blogs. :).

    Best Wishes. 🙂
    Kev. 🙂

  4. yo yo sup….. anywho, you asked me to post the “Hi Andy! I love your sense … I am about to post it on my blog for you. Gasp (deep breaths here), hard to believe your not following the fun!

  5. That is a busy life you lead. I’m currently doing a TEFL, hopefully one day I’ll spend a year or two teaching English somewhere in Asia or elsewhere… I admire teachers. My English teacher in high school plays a big role in the choice I made to come study in England.

    • Hi Ellie! Thank you for stopping by, and following me!
      I did the TEFLA course back in 1994, and taught professionally for several years, including dozent-level at a business college; it’s very fulfilling, but like any teaching job you put a lot more hours in than you actually get paid for! The past few years I’ve mainly focused on writing, and teaching singing, but still tutor the occasional student, though most of my “teaching” of English is now online.
      I look forward to looking into your site – I am also a notebook addict; I have dozens of blank notebooks of every shape and size (mostly A5 & A6) just waiting for the perfect use to come along. 🙂

  6. WOW!! your last paragraph is truly impressive. I hope we can keep in touch, follow back please 🙂

    • Thank you! And I’m glad to reciprocate – I do a lot of crafting in my spare time (or when I shift gears from writing to winding down 🙂 ); crocheting is my main thing, but I do just about every kind of craft!

  7. HI, Stephanie. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking a post. As an old retired guy, I am amazed at all you are undertaking. Looking forward to visiting your work. I hope you are getting enough sleep.

    • Sleep? Oh, right… that… 😉 I am actually blessed by the fact that I only need ~5 hours a night! Enjoy snooping around my blogs, opening all the cupboards, and making yourself at home! You’ll just need to bring your own drinks…

  8. So glad meet you! Looking forward to reading more of your blog(s).
