(Sorry for the cutoff; I'm not sure how to widen the blog page; click on the above graph to view the entire graph).

I recently discovered the existence of GraphJams after my blogmate, Clare, at Women of Mystery posted a very funny graph about typos, that was submitted by Maggie's Farm.

GraphJams comes from the folks at All of the graphs are user-submitted. They even provide a chart builder for your convenience.

I've got a lot of ideas swirling around, but I've got an important deadline; I have a coveted spot over at the Watery Grave Invitational at The Drowning Machine. Twelve writers will be competing; the challenge issued was a crime story (3500 words or less) based on a theme of baseball. Wish me luck ~ I'm up against some heavy hitters in the crime fiction world!

Maybe after I've submitted my story, I'll dream up a graph and submit it to GraphJams. How about you? I bet you could come up with a great graph...why not give it a shot?


  1. Kathleen - That GraphJams does look interesting - and creative. I wish you the best with the Watery Grave Invitational, but you don't need luck; you've got lots of talent. Now go to it!

  2. Hi Margot! Thanks, sweetie ~ your encouraging words are inspiring! The deadline is 12 noon tomorrow...still polishing! I appreciate your kind comments!

  3. I saw one like this on 'The Creative Process'. It was about 90 % internet surfing and 10 % Writing. LOL, some days that is so true. I'll have to check this site out.

  4. Hi Angela!
    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're husband's on the mend.

    Isn't this a hoot? I was LOL, and I started thinking of so many graphs I could come up with!

    Best wishes!
