About Me

My photo
My friends call me the "grammar goddess." Really. ;-) I own a freelance writing, editing and tutoring business. Previously, I served three years as food editor for The Morning Sun in Mt. Pleasant, which kindled my interest in food writing. My other areas of expertise in writing include features, community news, architecture/construction and engraving/personalization. I have a frightening number of cookbooks and watch too many DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel and Antiques Roadshow (BBC and PBS versions) shows. And I tweak nearly every recipe I make.

Christmas: The Season for Procrastination

'Tis the season ... to procrastinate.

If you're familiar with the tune Deck the Halls, you're probably saying, "That doesn't sound right." It is, nonetheless, true for many of us. 

Mind you, some of the procrastination wasn't my fault. I spent about two weeks at the start of the month suffering from bronchitis. 

This week, though, the delays are pretty much of my devising. So the cookies have yet to be baked; about one-third of the presents still have to be bought (Walmart and Target are my targets tomorrow) and my few written cards are going to be New Year's cards. And I'm going to try to get out some e-cards by Christmas Day!
