Portable Magic

I haven't been posting as often over the last couple months, but it isn't because I haven't been writing - au contraire, I've been writing up a storm. About a month or so ago I started up a splinter blog because it wasn't the sort of writing that I generally do here on Mommakin. I'm using it as a forum for my creative impulses, such as they are.

I have it set up right now with a serialized memoir on Mondays, a serialization of a story I wrote over the summer for the girls on Wednesdays, and a series of stand alone fictional short stories on Fridays. Today there's a little something special posted, but I'll let you scoot over there to see what it is.

The name of the blog is Portable Magic, which is taken from a Steven King quote: Books are a uniquely portable magic.

I've been working on a few other endeavors as well, but I'll reveal them in their time. Till then - pay me a visit at Portable Magic and let me know what you think!

You KNOW I'm going. Because of the love.

The word "splinter" gets me every time.
I read fast.
I see "sphincter".

You have a SPHINCTER blog? You don't say...

Yay, you finally unveiled it! And today is the perfect day for me to begin reading it too. No house guests.... no illnesses in the house.... and a rainy day here.... perfect! I'm going to make myself a cup of tea now and get to reading! I have a feeling it's going to leave me wanting more and smiling (just like your blog posts do).

Love the Steven King quote, and I love that you are sharing your other blogs with us. You are "still waters that run deep". So talented. I started reading on P.M., but had to pop back over here and tell you that I'm so excited for you. And for me. (I always make it come back to me.) I look forward to your stories, fiction and non).

You are a beautiful person Tammy, inside and out.

I'm with Savant, anytime someone can use the word splinter and I'm not watching my husband dig something out of his hand with his pocket knife, I'm into it.

Oh BTW, in case you want to know, I had a dream about you last night.
