Social Media for Dummies

Social Media for Dummies

By Deborah LeBlanc / May 20, 2020 /

First of all I have to admit that I am the farthest thing from a social media guru that there is. Aside from doing the most basic of posts, I find most of them frustrating. And by them I’ll stick to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn. To remedy my frustrations I decided to get books…

By Deborah LeBlanc / March 15, 2020 /

Yesterday was unbelievable. I went shopping for groceries and found more than half the shelves empty. I went to another store and found the same thing. Another store, same problem…Hand sanitizer, foggetaboutit,–toilet paper, fogettaboutit. Even baby wipes and Kleenex were selling out faster than water. The only time I’ve ever seen anything close to this…

Scary Movies

By Deborah LeBlanc / September 10, 2018 /

Although I read and write paranormal suspense, do paranormal investigations, and enjoy a good horror movie, it’s sad to say that the last decent scary movies I’ve seen were the Exorcist, the Conjuring, and The Conjuring 2 (Although not as good as Conjuring 1). I’m not into blood, guts, and gore, so movies like SAW,…

Sometimes a simple picture will cause you to stop and, as a writer anyway, try to put what you see into descriptive words. Can you give this one a try? Based on this picture, if you were writing a story, what would be your first sentence? The one I came up with is a bit…

Binge Watching

By Deborah LeBlanc / June 26, 2018 /

One of my favorite shows to binge-watch is Scandal. Unfortunately, it gets addictive, which keeps me from writing if I’m not careful. Arg! I hope to be able to write something as addictive to readers some day. A book that becomes a television series that people just can’t help but binge-watch. Sigh For now, I’ll keep…

At the moment, I’m writing two books at once. I know, like it’s not tough enough to write one, right? Anyway, deadlines have a way of forcing your hand, even if those deadlines are self-imposed. The challenge I seem to be running into has everything to do with words, like in finding the right ones.…

Two Flags of Surrender

By Deborah LeBlanc / March 17, 2018 /

A couple of weeks ago I attended a funeral. As odd as it may sound, it was a beautiful event. Lots of people milling about, many laughing and telling stories about the deceased. Some eating food that had been prepared by friends or family for those in mourning. Others drinking coffee and telling their own…
