Hi, Wahoo! I'm a new member. I am blogging about archeology and Egyptology including book reviews. Okay it's a niche subject, but that's the subject of my newly released historical fiction, "Hidden From the Face of Humans". Here's the link incase there are any Ancient Egyptian fans out there.

And one more thing -- maybe this should be my next blog subject -- The ancient Egyptian goddess Isis meant a great deal to women for thousands of years, well into the Roman period. I abhor the crazy people who have absconded with this name and desecrated it. Although to be fair, it is the American press that continues to use the initials, even though our government has suggested we use ISL. I will think through this a little more and post the link to it when ready. Thanks for letting me vent.

My new post for Insecure Writers Support Group:

We post once a month, on the first Wednesdays, and this time I blogged about my short stories and the discouraging process of magazine submissions.

I am still writing about art--movies, television, art, and food (which I consider an art form).

As the Buddha famously observed, a lifespan is like writing in water, a moment of illusion and sensory experience soon disappearing. Some of us may feel that way about our writing sometimes. Check out this week's post--Seduction” and “The Printer’s Eye”--about a fabulous art exhibit now in San Francisco.

More than 200 artworks are now on exhibit at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco (February 20-May 10, 2015), an exploration of Japanese art and the world of desire (“ukiyo-e”—floating world). Elaborate scrolls, woodblock prints, sculptures, and kimonos are vivid examples of the transient and evanescent world of the senses, particularly the highly rarified courtesan culture for the extremely wealthy samurai and aristocratic classes.

What an interesting topic, Linda. You've got me thinking about it as a mom of a grown children who aren't in creative fields. How difficult it is to feel like you're a productive and valuable family member when one writes and writes and writes and there are huge gaps between rejections and acceptances. Thanks for the prompt -- I'll get back to you!

I'm a newbie here. I started blogging less than a year ago ( I blog on a variety of topics, but recently started a regular feature called "The Encourager's Devotional Series." I'm also writing a book about a friend who's in the Federal Witness Protection Program. I have a section about my book on the blog and just got up the nerve to post the first excerpt.

My name is Caroline and I´ve recently joined She Writes.

I´m still figuring out my way around and I´ve already come across beautiful pieces of art in the form of words.

I just started my own blog called I´ve been wanting to write it for years now. But it wasn't until a month ago until I finally got to courage to do it.

I am loving it  and I´m sure I´ll learn a lot from this site and from all of you. 

I hope you have a nice sunday!
