About Me


Oklahoma Redbud Tree

The Oklahoma state tree is the Redbud. Every spring, before the other trees begin to green-up, the bright pink blossoms of the Redbud paint the landscape, representing re-birth and continuity.
The Rose Rock is distinct to Oklahoma and represents the uniqueness of us all.
My name is Susan and while not born in Oklahoma, I live there by choice. I have degree’s in Computer Science and Business Administration and currently work as an business analyst in the Health Care industry.
My secret dream has always been to be a writer.   I participated in NaNoWriMo in 2009, and met the 50,000 word challenge. I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo (April 2014) by posting 15,000 words toward to working novel. This blog is one step in improving my writing skills and tapping into the creative life-blood we all possess.My blog goal is one blog a week but this is a work in progress so don’t give up on me yet. I hope to write in the spirit of the Redbud and Rose Rock by posting new and interesting blogs that are uniquely my own.
I welcome all comments and I hope those of you who visit my blog will come back often.

  1. O.K.! Now I know why you named your blog this, it’s perfect!

    • Naming a blog is hard! I think part of blogging is discovering who you are and it’s sort of like naming the new baby before their personality forms.

  2. Thank you for the follow, Susan. You have a nice blog, interesting posts and now a new follower! 🙂

    • Thank you back. I’m finishing up a writing course and hope I can start devoting more time to the blog. It sure takes a lot of time.

  3. Love the name and your blog! I can relate to having more to do, than time to do it all. You now have a new follower. I can’t wait to see what else you write!

  4. Hi Susan, I have a redbud tree in my garden in Melbourne. It’s my favourite tree and I didn’t know it’s name, I’ve always called it the “love tree” because of its heart shaped leaves 🙂 Now I am going to explore the rest of you blog.

    • I love Redbuds too Barbara. The Redbud is the Oklahoma State tree and when you start seeing pink splashes among the trees, you know spring is near. The picture on my blog was taken in my yard. Thank you for following.

  5. Hi, Susan! I noticed that you haven’t posted anything lately? Please don’t feel pressured to do anything about this at all, but I nominated you for the “One Lovely Blog” Award: http://sappyasatree.wordpress.com/2014/10/06/one-lovely-blog-award/

    By the way, I found myself quoting your metaphor of the blogger as someone putting a message in a bottle the other day!

    • OMG! Did I miss an email because I didn’t get notified. Thank you so much. I really feel honored. I admit I have been lax. My day job is sucking the life out of mr. But I will definitely take a look at this. Thank you again!

  6. Interesting and unusual blog here, Susan.
    Thank you for visiting Sound Bite Fiction, lovely to meet you.

  7. Hi again, Susan, I was kinda joking about the book, but thank you for buying it anyway.
    Either you are not writing much, or I am incompetent at navigating your blog. I do hope it is the latter.
    Thank you also for visiting Sound Bite Fiction, every comment is appreciated.
    Do you think my readings contribute at all to the stories?

  8. I have a couple of blogs but haven’t been keeping up with them much. SPF is pretty much the extent of my contribution to the literary world. But I keep hoping.
