My Results from the Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test™

The Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test™ was a fun, free little online test, sort of like the Myers-Briggs test to determine personality types: https://www.humanmetrics.com/index.htm#intro. After you’re done and when you click on the “Career Choices” info button, it gives some details about the kinds of careers that would be most satisfying for your type. I found …

Broomsedge, not Fescue

An Author’s Corrections: It’s Broomsedge, not Fescue When I wrote No Qualms I described the shadeling as having hair that resembled fescue. That’s because I’d always thought the grass I had in mind was fescue. Recently I learned that it is in fact a grass commonly called broomsedge (possibly Andropogon virginicus). It might be a …

Where do Writers get Ideas? My Ideas Come from the Gaps

Where do Writers get Ideas? People often ask me where I get ideas for my stories. I’d never really paid attention to it much, because I’ve always had a fairly active imagination and it comes naturally to think of the things I write. Where do writers get ideas? But I did notice something the other …

Winter is Here in the Ozarks

First it was the frost flowers. They showed up last week during our first really cold spell.    Then yesterday as we were on our way home from grocery shopping the first sleet began.

Frost Flowers

The first time I saw frost flowers here in northwest Arkansas, about nine years ago now, I thought they were trash collected at the base of weeds on the roadsides. And then I saw a photo at Cloudland and the mystery was solved and a fascination began. As if I don’t already have enough fascination …
