Drop by and share your Easter/spring memories.  I'm all about crinoline, Easter hats, and tulips

Ladies, don't forget about the Submission Mission chat. We start at 230 CST today. Let's talk about hooks and manuscripts, literary magazines and agents, reading fees and contests. Bring any links or titles that help you. We share a lotta stuff in this group-- you won't leave empty-handed.

Hello, everyone. I am pleased to invite you to visit my new website, Writing Women's Lives, and to read my latest blog, a review of Sarah Weddington's memoir A Question of Choice.

Enjoy!
