Writer-Cat Friend Saves Life Not Unlike Woman's Best Lady

Posted on December 13, 2012 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Let me get personal here? Have you hugged your husband-man, wife-woman, partner, parent, child, or pet today?

I'm loving my cat J.J. more than ever today and for more than his sitting beside me when I'm at the computer checking e-mail, reading or writing in Facebook, Twitter, Storylane, or blogging. No matter what function, he's a comfort and an inspiration. Maybe he just loves the sound of clicking…


Politics and Writers

Posted on September 23, 2012 at 5:50pm 0 Comments

As many people feel frustrated and confused about politics, writers are too, especially during national elections when all the back and forth create a mental scaffold. Who's right? Who'll work for me? Who'll work for the whole country?

Women have forged ahead with an incredible number of accomplishments past and present. For the first time women anchor two of the three national news networks: CBS and ABC, and women lead universities, business and industry, and own businesses. Women writers' ranks continue to rise, bringing women issues, stories that matter to them and affect them, as well as for their interest and entertainment. Women walked through fire and rain in the groundwork struggle, women have succeeded…


The Writing Struggle Goes On Unless... #7 SWINSPIRES

Posted on February 20, 2011 at 11:00pm 5 Comments

Greetings She Writers,


While reading Deborah Siegal's post, I thought long and hard about the awful times I've had with this thing called writing. There were days when I simply could not write -- depression and mania days -- and others when I was too stressed or too wrapped up in family crises, young daughter's illnesses, husband's near death, family members murdered, fatal accidents, relatives wrongly accused and sent to prison. The list goes on and on. I come to creative…

King Day a Golden Prompt for Writers

Posted on January 17, 2011 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

            Martin Luther King Jr. Day and his legacy are a writer’s dream because of the controversy, the spiritual quests, the meaning or myths, and the wide spread accomplishments for all people. We quote his powerful quotes that fulfill our spirit, and we relish the magnificent triumphs, and we’re proud of his leadership. For every King Day, we’ve celebrated with the King family, with citizens around the country, and with memories of his poignant messages. We replay historical movies…

Hello Joyce

So nice to hear from you! It's been a while! Thank you for being in  touch by reading my poems. I am glad you like them. How are you doing and what have you up to? Let's be in touch.

If I have helped you in some small way Joyce I am overjoyed! Great to hear from you...

Joyce, I apologize. I somehow never saw that you sent me a note of congratulations on Neruda's Memoirs: Poems. The book is available on Amazon, B&N, and  through Ingram. I have an author page on FB that I'd be pleased to have you see, as it also lists reviews for the book. A new one just posted today. I've been delighted with readers' comments.


I hope you are well. Since the last poetry group I was in here was disassembled, I'm mostly just in and out.


Again, many thanks for your kind words. Maureen

Hi Joyce,

It was very nice feeling to receive your friendship proposal. I am happy and to have you as my friend. I understand that you are a poet and so must be an emotional person. I look forward for the long life of our newly born friendship. Bye.. and take care....

Hi Joyce, sorry to take so long getting back to you! How do I find the time, or how do I write so much was the question I think. WELL, first of all I could never write so much if I was working full time, it's only since I've been home that I can write at this pace. Secondly, I find that other's would be more than happy to fill all my time for me, and so I have to say: "No" sometimes. This is very difficult for me, but I'm getting better. This month I took my calendar and wrote down everything I wanted to do, so Mondays is Monday Madness, Wednesdays is One Stop Poetry, and Friday I post something else on my blog. I havn't as yet been able to sneak in time for competitions which is something I want to do as well as continue my novel, which I've done a great deal of research for. Another thing I do is keep my phone off the hook. If it's important people will leave a message or if it's one of my grown children I can always pick it up. This avoids endless conversations that are nice but quite honestly can waste a lot of time. I've cut down on other activities also. Having fostered and developed my children's talent for countless years I think it's time to develop my own and don't feel selfish about this as I have felt blessed in my efforts and in many ways I can still advocate for others in this way. Hope this helps, if not, write back and ask some more questions, and hopefully I'll respond a little quicker! Best wishes and much love, Elizabeth.
