To write anything and everything without critiquing myself before I even begin.  I am my own worst enemy when it comes to writing.  Two or three words and I'm ready to scrap it...I've written all my life but I tossed out all the work I did when I was younger,  which I regret tremendously now.  So....this is my beginning. 

Hi Frankie.  Give those inner critics a job.  Send them to proofread the page.  That ought to keep them at bay perpetually!  As for me, well, I want to write a good blog post today, and then to write at least 2500 words on my memoir, which should take me over 42,000!

Oh indeed!  I giggle everytime I read any newspaper.  I'm afraid too much time spent proofing the Times would cause an aneurysm.  I certainly need to get back to my blogs.  I've often considered a memoir.  I'm sure it would be both amusing and frightening to readers, especially my family.  What a great gift that would make- to myself. 

Goal for today is to read a book of short stories I'm going to review and write some notes to get me started.  Also, I'm going to start my next short story today... no excuses!  I guess that means no cooking!  Yay!

Happy to report that I finished reading the book that I'm reviewing and jotted down some great notes.  Also started my new short story and got way beyond where I expected to!

Bravo!  That's exactly what I need to try to stir those brain cells from stagnation!!!

"Lynn, YA is definitely literature! Anything YOU think is literature, is literature--I just recommended a book of lyrics yesterday, because to me they're every bit as good as the unsung, pardon the pun, poetry out there. Just go ahead and…"
