The Quick and Dirty (and Funny) Blog Post

With the proofing and editing of The Bonds of Osteria, the editing and rewriting of a new book series, creating some ad copy, and writing an article for Horticulture magazine, this week I’m absolutely drowning in work. As such, I’m wimping out and doing a quick and dirty (and hopefully funny) post for this Wednesday’s look into my writing world.

First off, if you find you simply can’t get through the week without reading more of my words, I highly recommend signing up to my email list. Just for typing your email address you’ll get two books that include gobs of short stories by yours truly as well as a peek into the world of the Osteria Chronicles. No pressure, but all the puppies and kittens and baby sloths of the world will suffer if you don’t sign up.

Please don’t let me suffer.

Alright, now that the begging is over, here’s this week’s quick and dirty (and funny) post…

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been scouring the Google Images files for silly glimpses into the world of Greek mythology (on which my Osteria Chronicles series is based) to share on Twitter and Instagram (up yours Facebook, you don’t deserve my funnies!). If you follow me on social media, you may have already seen a few of these, but I’ve mixed in a some new ones just to keep your funny bone on its toes (wait, is that even anatomically possible?).

Enjoy (some of these are tiny, just click on them to see them a bit bigger)…

How’s your week going? I promise I’ll be back on Saturday with a little local adventure…and maybe some misadventure. See you then!!

  1. hahaha I love these. Funnily enough, I had just (tried) to tag you recently in a good one on (your enemy) Facebook…. of course I’ll never be able to find it again. Congrats on the horticulture article!

    1. I did see that but for some stupid reason it wouldn’t let me comment or like it or acknowledge it in any other way beyond thinking it might have been a figment of my imagination. See!? F*#%ing Facebook!!

      1. *shakes fist* damn you, Facebook! Ugh, I’ve been so bad at all social media and self-promotion lately… I’ve lost the will and have no (furless) baby to waggle in front of the camera/am over looking at other people’s (furless) babies!

      2. Me too. The busier I get with writing, the less I can (want to) be on social media, which means I’m fretful the whole time that I’m deep in writing mode that I’m ruining my marketing efforts and no one is going to buy what I’m writing! And then the cats conspire against me and refuse to do cute things that I can post.

  2. Hahaha! I’ve been loving these on the social medias! 😂 And maaaaaan am I glad that I signed up to your email list already… No baby sloths shall suffer on my account. Good luck with the intense writing sessions!


    1. Bah, but now any of these I post on SM later are going to be reruns for you! Yes, I believe your timely efforts in getting on my mailing list must have saved at least a dozen baby sloths from any pain, distress, or fast movement. I’ve had to extend my goal a little bit with the rewrite to seven weeks instead of four…there’s only so much time in the day and I have a low tolerance for driving myself insane.


      1. You heard the lady, people! By her own admission, she’s teetering on the very brink of sanity, and baby sloths are at risk! For the love of god, sign up to her mailing list!!
        There, my work here is done. And since even the best comedians reuse their material, I’ll be happy to revisit these funnies in the future! Now, get back to them there rewrites 😀
