Thanks, Candy!  I felt like a bit of a putz when I found it, but it's proudly displayed on my blog now.

I've been working on mine for a year and a half as well.  I got to have Carolyn Yoder look at the first chapter and give me her notes as I am a graduate of the Highlights Workshop at Chautauqua!  It was a wonderful experience.  The novel, I'm sorry to say is definitely on the back burner for the moment.

Hi Candy! Welcome to the Southern Writers group! Be sure to stop by and introduce yourself on the "Roll Call" discussion, and then just jump on in and do what you like.

I haven't had BlueBell ice cream in AGES! LOL

Thanks for getting back to me, Candy! Sounds like you do A LOT as an assistant at the library. As someone who writes as well, do you feel like it feeds that urge (being around books and fostering a love for reading) or do you feel exhausted at the end of the day (dealing with everyone else's needs, do you have any energy left to write)? Do you write for children? Do you ever share your work at your school to get feedback? What grades do you work with? Do you enjoy it? What do you hate about it? Thanks again for any info you can provide. Just trying to get a feel for what I'm getting myself into. ; )

Candy.
I read your comments about making skeletons dancing - it's so-o-o true. I agree, 100%. I wonder who said it? We all have problems and tragedies in our lives, some more than others. We like to lose ourselves in fictional mishaps because they take the edge off the real life anguish, allow us a moment of forgetfulness. If a writer manages to morph her pain into entertainment for others, she is great. Otherwise, it's just senseless moping.
Olga.

Candy:

Thanks for responding. I too have just signed up for She Writes. I have been writing off an on since my teens, but became serious after taking a couple of creative writing classes while working on my Associate of Arts degree several years back. I have a couple of things on the burner, one being a writing about experiencing an eating disorder in my 40's due to a divorce; the other my memoir. Some things are quite painful while others are just down right embarassing so it has been a difficult process to open myself up to actually put it down on paper, with the nagging thought if these things would hurt or embarass my family. Still, I have this deep desire to "get it all out" on paper, possibly a way to heal?

Anyway, glad you responded and I look forward to corresponding with you.

Thanks,
Denise

The Sweetness.... the girl on the cover

 So,” some may ask, “is that you on the book cover?” I shake my head…no. There’s no need to explain that the child adorning the cover of my novel, The Sweetness, was born years before me; and no need to say “but, we are related,” and certainly no…See More
