Every morning, after rising and making coffee, I sit on my couch with a 6" x 8" spiral notebook and a Pilot Razor Point Extra Fine pen. For at least a half hour, I record a diary of what I did the day before, dreams and nightmares, wounds and applause, plus tasks due that day. As of this writing, I'm up to page 10,380.
While that number may sound impressive, it doesn't travel far enough back. I wish the innocent little girl I once was would've grabbed pen and paper as soon as she learned to print. If I had started then, writing my memoir, "The Division Street Princess," might have required less tunneling. To fill in, I had to rely on microfiche pages of Chicago newspapers, tales told by relatives, memories that had been bolted to my brain, and my…Continue
Five panelists at the AWP conference in Seattle (February 26-March 1, 2014) posed this question and tried to answer it.
“How many readers will it take to feel I haven’t wasted my time?” asked moderator Valerie Vogrin, who’s at work on her second novel.
After considering the question from various angles and with various degrees of seriousness, she (perhaps tongue in cheek) came up with a figure: 150.
When I was younger, like in high school younger, I used to sing a lot. I wasn't all that bad, back in th’ day. Of course, when I sang with the school choir, I sang with my choir voice. When I sang alone in my bedroom using the hair brush as a microphone (oh come on, you did it too, admit it), I tried to sound like Barbara Streisand or whoever was on the radio at the time.
Back in high school a group of my friends formed a band. Someone played guitar, another friend played the drums, and like all high school bands, we thought they rocked the joint. To my delight, they invited me to sing with them for a performance (just once, now that I think about it). After our show a friend’s mom who had been in…

Last year I finished the manuscript for my first novel. Through the process of writing it I had several readers and hired an editor. Things didn't work out with the editor so I trudged onward on my own. I also workshopped the book several times in professional writer's groups.
I read the…
I ask Maitreya’s grace on the Oscar Pistorius trial in South Africa. It’s a wretched situation of karma for the country. The whole trial brings us closer to the issues of guns and temper, and accidental death or murder and how our humanity may respond to these situations.
It’s difficult for a successful white athlete to be the point man to help his country, all South African families, and Her Honor Milady Judge Thokosile Masipa to see the correct response to the story…
I have the South African election day, May 7th, onmy calendar. I have May 25th marked on my calendar for the Ukraine elections.
I'm thinking that the boxer Vitali Klitschko and the chocolate billionaire Petro Poroshenko would be better served in a career line that involved international service. I know South africa for instance needs sports leagues for young people, and I know as a woman that when I exercise and feel physically fit, I have much higher self-esteem. If Mr. Klitschko…
