TMI Tuesday June 2, 2020

Apparently, the TMI Tuesday Blog is back in business. So, here I am with another episode. After you read the questions and my answers, you can find out how to participate.


  1. The best part of your job is _____ creating ideas with words on a page, or, in my case, a computer screen.
  2. My favorite quote is _____ “Your grandmother pretends not to know you on Halloween.” This comes from Erma Bombeck and is the inspiration for my novel-in-progress, Grandma Doesn’t Know Me.
  3. The best part of my day is _____ the end when I can relax with a good book, magazine, or podcast.
  4. What is the hardest part of your job? How do you deal with it? The most difficult task related to writing is marketing. However, I’ve hired a wonderful person to help me with that. Patty Fletcher lives in Kingsport, Tennessee, with her retired guide dog, Campbell. She has published two books of her own and is working on a trilogy. Her business, Tell It to the World Marketing, helps authors and businesses with public relations. Click here to learn more.
  5. You must write a “how to guide” about something for which you have expertise. What is this guide about or tell us the title? I don’t write how-to guides. Once in a while, I don’t mind sending instructions to friends on how to use certain technology, but I prefer to write fiction, poetry, and memoirs.

Bonus: What would you name your boat? Believe me. Because of my visual impairment, you wouldn’t want me piloting a boat.


Now, it’s your turn. Click here to learn how you can participate. Alternatively, you can answer one or more of the questions in the comments field below. I look forward to reading your answers. Thank you for stopping by today.


New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

  1. Hi Abbie.
    First, thanks for the mention.
    Second, I’d like to see you employ your imagination just a bit when answering these questions.
    Don’t be such a literalist.
    When someone asks you about what you’d name a boat, they don’t necessarily expect you to have or drive a boat. They want to know what you’d name one if you had one.
    These questions aren’t all meant to be answered literally.
    The mark of a good writer is “imagination”
    Try it, you might be good at it.

    1. Hi Lynda.

      I would love to see your answers.

      Abbie, I really did enjoy your answers. I was kinda just messing with you but I tend to be a sarcastic person and I meant no harm.
