Words Are My Pleasure – Guest Post By Teresa Karlinski


Give me an invitation and I’ll take you up on it. Does that make me easy? This is just a little tidbit.

Thank you, Kevin, for this opportunity to guest post. I believe I have an interesting, short and sweet, offering for you.

Words are my Pleasure

Tess (Teresa) Karlinski

Time: Where does it go? Most days it’s a race to keep up. It doesn’t wait, and slips away like water through your clenched fingers.

Reading: Don’t we all love it? Is there ever enough time to get our fill? I need a daily fix—at least a small one or I’m grouchy.

Life messes with our plans and schedules, doesn’t it? Instead of a novel, I’ll grab anything, even a cereal box to read words. Ha, you’ve done…

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  1. It was a pleasure hosting your guest post. Kind regards. Kevin


  2. I’m the same way about reading. My children have been visiting the last week and there was rarely time to squeeze in a reading hour (though we did once). I am so sorry to have them go, but am planning on some serious reading today to catch up.


  3. You’re really making the rounds. Wonderful to see! 🙂


  4. Best of luck! I guess we’re reading all the time, but as far as dedicating a big chunk of time to a book…


  5. I’m delighted to know more about your anthology, Tess. I sincerely admire your skill, particularly with short stories and the uber-short stories you feature on your blog. Me, on the other hand, i have to “go around my @$$%&!& (rear end) to reach my elbow” as they say. 😈 So i tend to write novels. LOL. Mega-hugs my friend!


  6. I can never get too much of Tess! And that’s telling it like it is. I enjoy you, Tess – and your writing is a delight. 🙂
