As for the raunchy scenes….

But I also blog – tab in bar above, me too on occasion–here mainly on writing, as well as what today’s fancy is, Glencoe mountains, friends, films, Mr Shey, the difference between mushy peas and broccoli soup, hey, you name it, often inviting fellow authors to share books and experiences.

    Que ce jour ne soit que douceur et bonne humeur !

  13. Very powerful writing style!

  14. Being more than semi-Luddite I’d love to transpose your opening both to my wordpress blog, richwrapper, and to sent titers of delight to those staid facebook friends who think me curmudgeon enough without having Shehanne Moore cropping up to amuse, abuse, mortify and otherwise delight. I still do not read you – yet – but as Smexy as your come-read-mes are I need to go find a good clone-ist and make that newer version see what all the bub is about, hub. You give me hope that Scots part-o’-me will see a true rise from staid-sides.

  15. Bon Jeudi gentille fille
    “Faites-vous votre objectif de faire sourire quelqu’un ce jeudi par un petit acte de gentillesse, vous pourriez changer la vie d’une personne d’une manière que vous ne réalisez même pas.”

    “Le moindre acte de gentillesse vaut plus que la plus grande intention.”

    “Les jeudis et matins ne se mélangent pas. Rien ne va avec les matins.”

    “Une des meilleures choses que vous pouvez faire jeudi est de vous tenir pour responsable de vos objectifs.”
    bisous BERNARD

    • bernard25,

      Je parle (jusst enuff)
      To get me into trouble
      Gretat comment
      Je pense…
      Or is it…
      I thinks??
      To think
      or not to think?
      Or to drink?
      C’est la meme ‘to choose’?

    • Bonjour, mon ami. Dans la vie, il est toujours important d’être gentil et de prendre le temps de voir les autres sourire. Tu fais toujours ça. Merci.

  16. I am stupid.
    Too stupid to figure out how to comment on your posts that are, all over the place.
    But I’ll keep trying.
    Not sure if you will even see this, but I type it anyway:
    Your work is wonderful complex.
    And fascinating
    And deep.
    And brilliant

    • Man, YOU are epic. Your own posts are what we call here ‘pure braw’, especially in the irreverence stakes. Truly and yah did comment. Thank YOU as aye. Bottom of my heart . Forget my day, YOU just made my week. xx

      • You are so very kind and generous.
        I don’t know what to say
        I’ll just say
        Thank you from my heart.
        Bottom and top.

      • Listen, you’re the one who is kind and generous. I always love your no bullshit posts and I am truly honored you read mine.

      • “irreverence?”

        (Often a word loosely used to describe Lenny Bruce and his ‘sick’ humor)

        And I was tryin’ so hard to be relevant!



      • Yeah, Lenny Bruce was irreverent. The best people are. Reverent is way too boring seeing life through the rose tinteds cos they never really live it. SO you stick with it and keep the flame that way.

  17. Dear Good/Great Friend o’ Mine,
    You know it is my ‘policy’ to never ‘like’ w/o saying why.
    Leaving a comment.
    Just how I choose to roll.
    Do not fault those who choose to not roll this way!
    A like is a like of course of course.
    Never look a gift horrse in the mouth.

  18. Raynauds???

    Had to look that up.
    Never heard of it
    Hope it isn’t contagious
    On the Internet

    Don’t sound pleasant!

    I just survived WuFlu!
    No Big Shakes!

    Hope you are OK!


    You are a great friend to me.

    –Lance-a-Lot (Of BS)

    Thank you for all the times you have visited my feeble lame-azz blog.

    • Your blog ain’t feeble. I LOVE it. It is my kind of blog and like that I see many. Seriously I am aye ok. Hypothermia is a way of life to me is all. And the misunderstood thing?? It is f *^£ all to do with circulation. Soooo..you survived WuFlu.. Kudo, my friend. Kudos. xx

      • Right before HELL Week when I was in Navy SEAL Training, one of the BUD/s Instuctorors was carrying around a book..
        He made a big deal of showing it to all of us
        The Title was….
        Wait for it…
        “Hypothermia and You”
        I had to laugh
        Becuz I knew how we were gonna be
        ‘surf-tortured during Hell Week
        (The Pacific is COLD)

      • Ooh-oh, the best/worst bit re this level I am on?? I don’t know what is cold…despite living in Scotland… ergo I could cut a finger off chopping up potatoes and not know. Seriously. Kid you not. That is the truth. So my typing is pretty shit but as I aye say, so long as that is all that is wrong wi me and I can still have a drink and write a bit, mind my wee grandbairns, I am good. I go mountain bagging in the snow and all despite it (prob being a liability to anyone else there ) . And yeah I gotta LOVE ‘Hypothermia and you,’ Man, that is epic cos yeah I could imagine cold cos everyone tells me I am but I don’t feel it. my hands and all do but not me. .Hell, I love your posts about your times in the Navy. All the places you were. Bloody epic in terms of camaraderie and everything else.

  19. Once during hell week they made us get naked (It was four int the morning) We were then ‘instructed’ by one of the BUD/s intructors to get into the water and just tread water — we were on the Ampib side of the base–San Dog bay–the water was about a half-degree ‘warmer–bout 36 degrees. We did this for about two hours. In and out of the water. Arounf sunup they pulled us out and told us to get dressed and ready for chow. We all got dressed—took some time. We were all shaking so uncontrolably. Last thing we had to do: put our boots on. The instructors said we had five minutes to get our boots on and they set their watch. No one was able to do it in time—shaking so bad.
    Guess what? They made us get back into the water.
    We did not get breakfast that day.

    Looking back, I loved it.
    Not really, but fun to remember….

    • My typing suks! Please ignore the typos! Hahahahaha

      • Lol… Join the club re the typos. Jeez, I think a memory like that would be fun to remember at a distance right enuff. Obvi they thought they were doing you all a favor…… But my god, a wonder no-one died of shock! The bastards prob had nae intention of giving you chow and that was why you only got five mins to get the boots on. But look, you look bakc and you think… I did that…

  20. Actually, someone did die.
    Few weeks later, but there are some things even I won’t write about
    Out of respect.

  21. Suffice to say:
    He died of hypothermia
    In the Pacific Ocean

  22. shehannemoore,

    I will say just one more thing about this and then I will shut up (becuz it is painful to recall)

    week or so after he died, my class was in a ‘class-room’—rare occurrence in SEAL TRAINING! cHANCE TO SLEEP!

    The BUD/s Proctor
    Cracked a joke about the recently departed:

    He said,
    And I loosely quote:

    “Ol’ So and so. He always put out (SEAL Vernacular)
    He always put out
    Right up until he died.”

    We were doing a five mile ocean swim in the Pacific, and he had just stopped swimming and moving and talking.

    (They took him to Balboa Naval Hospital to try to save him, but…
    obviously, he did not make it.)
    They did CPR for hours
    No dice
    He died.

  23. God a’mighty.. I say that instead cussing and not on the god word either…like tae be polite on here.. That? Wel? No wonder you f don’t like talking about it. I wouldn’t either. Look at it through the lense of a drink maybe but that’s it.

  24. shehannemoores,

    FOR SOME Bizzarro Reason
    Your comments show up as SPAM and Dangerous to me
    As if I am afraid of
    I am trying to
    the Problem!
    Thank you once more for being my friend.

  25. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    • Okay… well I live this pretty hectic life. So while I’d love to say , ‘ How I sit there and breathe deeply and take ten, I don’t. I think a lot of writers ‘faff’ a bit you know and although you think you are wasting ten minutes you’re probably not. What I would say is that all writing, whether it is romance, or crime or whatever–hell–even this blog–adheres to a basic rule and that is goal, motivation conflict. Now that’s not just your overall story goal, it’s the goal for that little bit you are on. So the thing is to focus on that at the very start. I don’t plot. I am a fly by the seat of type, but you have to have some basic idea re the backdrop, re the story tupe, re the goals for your protagonists, the things they would never sacrifice, never do etc, their hopes, fears dreams . Then you have them do these things. In each bit you do, you start thinking what is their object here, what are they after and why and then of course there’s something that stops them, It does not have to be anything big. . It just has to keep a reader hooked and your focus can spring from that. .But don’t beat yourself up re not being hard at things that way. I wouldn’t like to tell you of the pages I wrote and then binned on an edit. pages I broke my back over and beat myself up writing. Also remember there’s day things happen and you just can’t. So always be kind to yourself as you sit down at that desk/.

  26. Bonjour SHEHANNE

    En ce petit matin, je te souhaite une merveilleuse journée
    Que chacune des 24 heures à venir ne soit que plaisir
    Que ce jour soit doux et qu’il t’emporte réussite et prospérité.

  27. Bonjour ou bonsoir MON AMIE SHEHANNE BISOUS

  32. Bonjour Mon AMIE SHEHANNE

    Combien de fois entendons-nous ce refrain
    Le soleil ne brille pas pour chacun
    Pourtant, il brille pour chacun de nous
    Avec des heures différentes de rendez-vous

    Il ne peut pas, être partout à la fois
    Il a donc bien souvent, à faire des choix
    Si nos jours se ressemblaient tout l’temps
    Les trouverions-nous toujours, aussi amusants

    Le soleil est pour nous un bon compagnon
    Nous devrions apprécier son intervention
    Quand il nous envoie ses amis les nuages
    Le ciel nous donne des jours gris avec la pluie

    Du soleil, on devrait tous s’en faire un ami
    Le comprendre comme avec un ami, un frère un proche ect….
    Belle journée belle semaine
    Que le soleil t’accompagne

  33. Bonjour Shehanne gros bisous juste une petite image pour venir te dire bonjour et te souhaiter une agréable semaine avec toute mon Amitié

  34. Bonjour BELLE SHEHANNE
    Brise légère, soleil du matin tous vous attendent pour vous réveiller. Puisses-vous avoir une merveilleuse journée et souvenez-vous de moi autant que je me souviens de vous
    Amitié bise Bernard

  35. Not my usual reading; however, as I simply love the “In Death” series by JD Robbs (I have read nearly all 53), I may have to have a browse at one of yours.

  36. Bonjour SHEHANNE , mes amis Amies

    Voilà 3 bonnes pensées pour commencer la semaine du bon pied
    J’espère que cela va t’aider
    Ainsi qu’une belle semaine à venir mème si le temps le beau n’est pas là
    Bisou Amitié

  37. Bonjour mon Amie SHEHANNE

    Les jours se suivent mais ne se ressemblent pas
    Chaque journée porte en elle un espoir

    Profite de tes proches de tes amis enfants petits enfants Sois sage, simple
    Reste le même ou la mème du matin au soir
    Ceux qui t’aiment sauront t’apprécier
    Bise ton ami Bernard

  38. Hello Shehanne, this is Charly Priest that had the blog crazy life, maybe you remember me, anyways had to leave the wordpress community for some time but glad to be back reading all you good people, nice to meet you again with a new account obviously.
    Have a great day, great post.

    • WOW. i do remember you Charly. GREAT to see you again. So many from these ”em”…earlier days have gone. Have the best day and waiting now for the new posts from you.

    • Give me your blog link here. It is coming up weird on my reader. xxxxxx

      • I know, it´s comming weird to a lot of people, it´s not my computer so I have to use the time I have wisely and not so wisely since it seems nobody can see what I write in the new bloghttps://wordpress.com/post/carlosmartinezsainz.wordpress.com/12 maybe this way you can get in and see why I had to leave wordpress. Anyways if you can´t get in, I do know GP the Pacific Paratrooper did seem to get into the new blog, just a mess this worpress, that it´s me that I lost touch handling technology that is constantly evolving. Great to see-read you again. Have a great day

      • Wp has been shit since they set up the new format. Now, this last fortnight I get notifications re someone liked a post or followed but no link to their blog so i can’t like in kind or follow. (Well I can sometimes if I rake about online for them.) Sure if I went premium it would all be fine. But a few blogs before this latest shit, came up like yours. Now eventually i found one and a very grand blog it no was too but like that, click on the old link and it was still, under construction. I found a link to your old site. But that’s it. Maybe ask Gp how he did it. Thing is ai am not bad at hacking and truly this biz has me beat. If he knows come back and let me know.

  39. Bonjour SHEHANNE
    Mon ami amie

    Malgré la distance tu es celle ou celui qui me comprends quand je suis triste
    Tu es celle ou celui qui me réconforte dans ces moments là
    Toi seule ou seul sait me redonner le sourire qu’il se doit

    Votre ami BERNARD bise amicale

  47. Shehanne, you are an amazing writer! I can’t wait to read the rest of your books. Happy New Year 💗💫🎉🥂

    • Christy, YOU are that my girl. And an amazing lady as well. A true inspiration actually. And that is a very very kind comment you’ve left me here. Just as I sit thinking about just binning the one I am editing, I will now keep going xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to you.

  48. Hi Shehanne, I just purchased one of your books and I am enjoying it very much. It’s my first foray into this genre as I am usually an historical non-fiction writer and reader. Loving it! I will leave a review after I am finished. All the best from Tret. Italy and North Carolina, USA.

    • OMG, I don’t know what to say, truly. That is just amazing and amazingly kind of you. Both to do that and to leave this comment. I am a big fan of history and the past but I actually don’t really read romance myself. I started because there were openings and then I shot myself in the foot pretty early on by turning down one–a very good one–because I struggled with all the ‘purple’ prose and sort of thin scenarios. So this means alot to me. All the very very best to you in Tret and North Carolina too. Italy is a beautiful country xxx
