Writing and Car Commercials Collide

Posted by shamrickbooks on April 8, 2014 at 9:35 PM Comments comments (1)

It is strange what you can learn from a simple commercial. It was not intended by the advertiser, I am certain. I couldn't even tell you which car was being advertised. All I can tell you is that the Muppets were in the commercial.

This really was a great commercial. I hated it at first as it seemed childish and it's sad that I can't remember what the car is. But I did learn something from it.

The other day I receive a critique on my recent work under edit....

Keeping up with the Perez's

Yesterday, a young girl named Jasmine was adopted by her foster family and became a permanent member of her very own family that could care for her. I attended her welcoming shower today and was in awe of the simplicity of her life.

You see, she is almost five but is severely handicapped. Yet in the four months I have known her, she has blossomed into a beautiful active girl, who is learning to walk, talk, and interact with her world. All just to keep up with her new family...

Pray In Everything

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21

Have you ever started out doing what you thought you should be doing only to be thwarted at every turn? What was God doing? Why was He allowing all these roadblocks and difficulties? Didn't He know how hard you were working at doing all this for Him?

How many times do we start out on a path we think is right, only to find that this was not really God's will fo...

Half of 2010 Lost in Reality

Posted by shamrickbooks on May 26, 2010 at 9:58 PM Comments comments (0)

June is almost upon us. Isn't it amazing how fast time can fly? So many things have gone by. Birthdays and accidents. Surgery and Holidays. Prayers and healing. The end of another school year fast approaches. All things must pass away to reveal the new. And the stories I could have written and didn't have the with all to write.


Life is good. After my accident on March 26, 2010 everything changed. Life slowed to a crawl and what was important became skewed. I lost my car, b...

New Years Resolutions Revisited

Posted by shamrickbooks on February 25, 2010 at 10:14 PM Comments comments (0)

Ack! and Alas! I began a wonderful post on Monday only to time out after having to step away and lost it all.... Really have my house in order don't I? :)


Well, not to worry. I have chosen not to bore you with all the gritty details. Simply put. It is a struggle and I am still striving at my goals. Three steps forward and two steps back. Sigh. Ah well, it's progress at least.


I think now that I have set such lofty goals and have had time to re-evaluate t...

New Years Resolutions.

Posted by shamrickbooks on December 28, 2009 at 11:53 PM Comments comments (1)

Hum, goals. A good idea. But how to make them measurable and realistic and humble? I tend to go for the opposite.


1. To get my house in order. In order to write, I must have some type of order and my house is driving me up a wall. I would love to say it was as simple as cleaning it, but it isn't. I commit to cleaning out one room a month, reaching my complete goal no later than December. I pray God will see me through and encourage my family to assist.

Chocolates and Rainbows

Posted by shamrickbooks on October 28, 2009 at 10:10 PM Comments comments (1)

Life is funny. Unlike Forest , I would not compare it to a box of chocolates. Although you really do not know what you will get (without the guide printed on the top), life is not so sweet. I love chocolate. What woman doesn't?


 Life however... life is more like chasing the rainbow. When you focus on that rainbow, life is wonderful. But you can never quite reach it. Around you, the rain is pouring, the wind is blowing, the ground is muddy and slippery, and the sun keep...
