Call for Stories!  Just a reminder that this Sunday 1 September is the last day to submit your true nature story!  Wonderful writing is starting to roll in... 

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Has anybody submitted an essay to L.A. Affairs? Do you know how it takes for them to respond? I just sent a stand-alone from my memoir, Loveyoubye, to be published by SWP in Spring. Just blogged about it http://rossandrawhite.com/2013/07/something-to-celebrate/.

Shouldn't we all take a course or something, Lucille!  :)  but it sounds like you are doing pretty well without one!

Thank you, Amanda. I really appreciate your response. It's etched in stone now that I received a certified check for $250 from Catharsis Journal. It's really unbelievable considering that I never thought of myself as a writer. I was a musician on the NY scene, and along the way, I kept being pulled aside by people who wanted me to write for them. Catharsis wanted submissions on Creativity, And How It Influenced Your Life. My last line was, "In the past, I saw music everywhere. Now I see stories." A better ending might have been, "In the past I was a Musician who loved writing. Today I am a Writer who loves music."  (Shouldn't I take a course, or something?)

A few thoughts about conscious writing in my blog post On Patience: Writing, Radiation, and Roses at Writing Women's Lives.
