Was playing a writing game that required me to think of things that start with J. Find out why and how it led me to France
@Melissa -- a great piece. When I was teaching I tried to get my students to understand that I don't give an A for effort. Their boss won't give them a raise just for showing up. It's just a fact of life, no cheering section follows us around in our daily lives.
Today I wrote about 5 books that inspired me to blog and to travel well. What books inspire your writing (or travel)?
This is only my second essay that has ever been published in a amagazine, and I ran around the house dancing like a crazy woman this morning. I am so thankful to have a community here at SheWrites to share with and celebrate. I need *comments* on the La Family site so that I have a chance to continue writing essays for them. I wrote about how life after college certainly is not what I expected it to be, but it is Imperfectly Grand. Thanks for checking it out and commenting. Have a blessed day. :)
I will always take care of my children. Read "Not One of The 'Girls'"http://t.co/z5nChHYV
Are you on a journey?
Are you a submissive writer? Attend the Submission Mission monthly chat next week. 230-330 CST on Friday, 4 May. I love these chats; They helped me get my first literary piece accepted.
To whet your appetite, consider this humorous piece about taking rejection like a woman:
Julija Sukys Talks Epistolophilia on CBC Radio
Last week I had the pleasure and privilege of making a whirlwind trip to CBC’s studios in London, England, where I had an appointment record an interview with Michael Enright, the host of CBC Radio One’s Sunday Edition.
I’ve heard other writers talk about what a pleasure radio interviews can be. This certainly was the case for me. The cocoon-like atmosphere of the studio appealed to me, and the intimacy of the conversation was heightened by the use of headphones. I had a bit of feedback (an echo of my own voice) in the beginning, but this disappeared as we started to talk.
I’ve always loved radio, and grew up with a constant soundtrack of documentaries, newscasts, interviews and even radio plays in the background. Now, my son is experiencing something similar in his childhood. What a weird pleasure it was for us (even though I would have loved to go back and erase some “umms” and finish a few truncated sentences) to hear my voice coming through the box in the kitchen that delights and informs us each day.
Thanks to Michael Enright and his producer Peter Kavanagh for making the conversation happen. You can listen to the interview here. My part starts around minute 26:15.
The Five Year Engagement -- only five? Read Otherwise Engagement:http://ning.it/I3uqdW
@Marilyn - I wish it were so easy to do a VIDA count on every profession.
Country music and books. Pretty much a perfect kind of week for me when I get both on the same day in my favorite town – NashVegas.
Here's the "books" part of that trip. Close encounters of the best kind:
I recently attended a panel on Women in Law Enforcement at Lynchburg College, where I learned that women, once excluded from law enforcement, now make up roughly 15 percent of sworn personnel. Fifteen percent. I could not help but think of the VIDA Count with its disparaging numbers illuminating the underrepresentation of women writers in the literary arts...What Women Writers Can Learn from Women Cops
