"Hello. This week I am dedicating my blog to C.S. Lewis in honor of the 50-year anniversary of his death on November 22, 1963 - the same day as JFK died. So I'm a tad late. But in late November I was madly typing on my NaNoWriMo novel (yes…"
"Talk about a Jenny-come-lately. I started yesterday - that's right - November 16th - posting words for my novel on the National Novel Writing Month website. I was going to sit this one out but realized I have something already written in one of…"
"Hello Lynn. I tried several times to post a comment on your blog but kept getting "this comment cannot be posted." Not sure why but I'll put my comment here:
Hello. This is my first visit to your blog and I love it! I wish I had seen…"
"Blogged about my ongoing experience reading The Trial by Franz Kafka. An interesting example of how books transcend time and affect the way you see the world and its current events.
Thoughts on reading The Trail by Franz Kafka"
"What's a busy writer to do when besides having full-time day job she also homeschools her son for his final year of high school? She blogs about it.
Back to school and no papers to sign! Homeschooling for senior year"
"It is already Day 6 of my 7-Day drive-by writing self challenge. The time has flown by and the words have been written. Committing to a goal seems to generate writing magic. Today I wrote about getting ready to home school my son one last time…"
"This week I have set myself a mini-challenge that I call "Drive by writing." For seven consecutive days I will post 500 blog-worthy words on my site Carols's Notes. Lately I have been having some writing time management issues and am…"
"Thanks for the encouragement Julie. I am all over the place with my writing, trying to find my focus, feeling scattered, getting discouraged. Great advice about writing 1000 words every day not matter what. That advice and and words of encouragement…"
"Do you find inspiration in art museums?
I wrote about a recent day trip to an art museum and out of many sparkling treasures, the few things I chose to take away with me in the form of photographs and specific impressions.
My trip to the Virginia…"
"I wrote about preparing to home school my son for his final year of high school. What do I need to make sure he knows and most importantly, what does he need to read before he leaves home? And I begin to look ahead to hopes and dreams for the…"
"I agree with the others who name Dickens as the master of fictional names and, being a big fan of Mr. Dickens, I have to share a just few of my favorites: Samuel Pickwick, Noddy Boffin, Joe Gargery, Clara Peggotty, and Wackford Squeers. But…"
"I rarely write about "politics", usually preferring to stick to book discussions and philosophy essays. But there is one issue often in the news that disturbs me peace of mind so deeply that it almost makes me want to turn activist. In…"
"Why write about a book like The Pickwick Papers, published 176 years ago? I guess because it's still hilarious and well worth reading and therefore still worth writing about. Plus I can add it my growing collection of Charles Dickens…"
I have been a professional technical writer and editor in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia for about 20 years. In the past six months I have begun writing web content for various websites such as Suite 101 and HubPages. I am working toward transitioning to a freelance writing and editing career. I enjoy writing about philosophy, books, and fitness and exploring creative non-fiction. I also write for my own blog.
Belated thanks, Carol, for your comment and your interest in Gertrude Stein and WW2, which also fascinates me. The radical differences between Germany and France concerning the survival of Jewish people: In France, three quarters of Jews survived, most of them like Gertrude and Alice, in the country, helped by friends and neighbors and French officials who quietly ignored the German edits... Some of this is found in the excellent study by Charles Glass, Americans in Paris: Life and Death under the Nazi Occupation.
Hi, Carol. I transferred by husband's pet store blog from blogger to WP. If you want to see how the transfer went, I post both links below. Compare by date to see how it looks. I had a few formatting issues and a few photos that weren't pulled in, but it really wasn't bad, and very simple to do.

Hello Carol, Thank you for taking the time to read my blog on my website about my mother who is living with dementia. I worked with Hospice as a counselor and social worker for seven years, and worked with many volunteers. As mentioned, I agree that it is a profound way to give back, to help people transition to another life. Looking foward to checking out your blogs/articles as well. Take care!
"Thank you for the friendship, I enjoyed reading your post and especially just after reading The Hidden Lamp and finding such a source of wisdom in there, the Joko Beck quote on my blog home page would go very well with the thoughts you shared as…"
