Silky Fudge - A Rabble Rouser Monthly Recipe

I've had this recipe since the 5th of September 2000. The world was really different back then.    The first time I had a chance to try this recipe was with a friend when we were the weekly house cooks during a program we both participated in called Katimavik.

The Single Plot

​​SMLXL This post originally appeared on the website writerramsay.com on June 28th, 2017 and has been republished here with permission. There are many theories to how many plots there actually exist. In fact, you'll probably read in many places that there's no longer any "original" stories. If this is true then there are a limited number of plots. There are many different theories. 3 possible plots, 7 possible plots, 36, 20... who's to say any one of these theories is wrong? In reality, there are as many plots as there are people, isn't there? If your story were a plot what would it be? The single plot theory is that there is only one plot. Seems simple right? Well, hold...

Inspiration was all around

This post originally appeared on WriterRamsay.com on May 19, 2017. Republished with Permission.   ​​SMXLL Inspiration yesterday was completely surrounding us. As I saw my daughter walk around the woods in both wonder and awe and then in horror as clouds rolled over the sun, terrified of the darker places in the woods, I knew that she was having an interaction with her surroundings that was bringing her imagination to life, scary as it might be sometimes.

Book Release, April 18, 2017

This post was originally published on writerramsay.com, April 18, 2017, and is used again here with permission.   Today I officially have released a book on the CreateSpace page for my first ever #indiebook. I'm really stoked because I've written so much poetry over the years that I finally had enough to slough it all together into a comprehensive book. I hope to also one day have a book of poetry for youths and to also begin my series, but first I need to work on the next book to publish: Citizen Vamp. It's been years in the making and while I've gotten a ton of good feedback about it, I've never completed it to the point where I'm happy......

Blogging with a Purpose: Non-Monetization.

This post originally appeared on the website writerramsay.com April 16th, 2017, and has been republished here with permission.   There are many reasons that people write blogs and create content. It seems like now everywhere I turn people are monetizing blogs and creating affiliate link lists a mile long.(okay, I'll lay off the cliches now.)   I hate everything about the monetized blog trend and the minute I see one on my phone that I've clicked through to I redirect and go back to my original page (usually Facebook or Pinterest.)    Non-monetized blogs are created for various reasons:   The writer is passionate about the topic, product or journey they are on. The writer is journalling/vlogging, etc. The writer...
