Introducing the Wiggle Writer

I’m the self-proclaimed heroine of the sedentary, WIGGLE WRITER. I fight the sedentary nature of life behind a computer. Authors, programmers, editors, etc.— we are destined to be lumps of goo sitting behind a keyboard, with only our fingers moving.

Destined, that is, unless we wiggle.

The Ripple Effect Explanation

When a pebble is dropped in calm water, ripples are produced in every direction. If nothing else interferes, the range of the ripples will increase, even though the effect of the pebble diminishes as they go.

If a second pebble is dropped, it changes the ripples from the first pebble, amplifying in some areas, reducing in others. This is a metaphor for life- The Ripple Effect Explanation

Hey, I was here first!

I am constantly amazed at the resiliency of plants.

When this tree was a sapling, someone put a decorative iron fence around it, most likely to protect it.

How Did I Get Here?

THE UNEXPECTED JOURNEY FROM TEACHER TO AUTHOR

My mom says I’m the only person she knows who likes to pull up her roots and move. Born in Kentucky, raised in Connecticut, educated in Massachusetts and Georgia, life was good.

And then, just to put icing on a gluten-free cake, out of the blue I landed my high school sweetheart 12 years after our first kiss <sigh> so I got to move around with his job (yay!). I am a bonafide move-aholic. In my spare time (if I had any) I try to live a sustainable life, write novels, dance, play, and laugh really hard every day. Occasionally I ask myself, How Did I Get Here?
