Valentine's Day

(I know this is a bit long for a blog post, but if you are married, or have been,  you just might enjoy the ride :) )Valentine’s DayI placed a hesitant hand on the smooth metal door handle of the Hallmark store and pulled it open to the sound of tinkling bells. Ruby hearts hanging from the door jamb brushed the top of my head as I stepped inside and headed for the Valentine section, an explosion of pinks and reds. …See More

The Call to Creativity: The Dragonflies

I just returned from four glorious days nestled deep in the evergreen woodlands of Northern Arizona.  Rim country they called it, referring to the Mogollon Rim. Two hundred miles of dramatic rock formations, deep canyons and more sky than you have ever seen at one time.  Three of my treasured writing pals and I gathered at a mountain cabin in Christopher Creek. Call it retreating, recharging, the rebirth…See More

More Moments in MontclairMore Moments in MontclairMy older brother, Todd, wrote a book one year and gave it to the family for Christmas.  It is a treasure.  A small, unassuming book titled Moments in Montclair, it lists various memories of our childhood in random order. I can’t read it without laughing myself to tears or crying myself into a fit of giggles.I don’t assume that our childhood was any better or more…See More

A Mother's Silhouette

To all of our mothers.  Thank you for your love~A Mother's SilhouetteI awoke for a moment in late afternoon, the hospital room spare and efficient.   I looked over and saw my mother sitting with a rosary in her hand, a cool dark silhouette before a window fiercely illuminated by the hot desert sun.“You don’t have to talk,” she said noticing I was stirring. “I’m just going to sit here.”Thank you.  It’s exactly what I needed.  An immense, familiar peace filled me, her profile eliciting early…See More

hey Susan, thats cool, we have a few of us Arizonans around. A lady last week just joined from SanTan Valley(which was a part of Queencreek).I am afraid I dont like being one though, its just too hot for me! This summer was a killer over there huh? I went to school at Mesa Community College and lived in Phoenix another time and we still have to go to Goodyear for my husbands chemo treatments every 3 wks now but at least we didnt have to go all summer! We are at the base of the Catalina mountains outside Tuscon and are a good 20 degrees sometimes more off of Pho. I think I am spoiled now! lol Ill be looking forward to seeing you around the group. Thanks!

Hello Susan!

Thank you for joining my group Blooming late!

I saw your blog and site on your profile, Your site is very nice and well done and congrats on the book! Your blog is extremelly well done and I founf your post personal and revealing. AS I hate everything about Arizona I immediatley thought that was proabably the only mistake you made rather than spending too much. Are you still in Az? Im by Tucson.

Please take some time to introduce yourself to the group in our To Kick It Off discussion as well as make sure to list your wonderful book and blog in the pages section to the left of the main group page so everyone can find and see them!

We have a bunch of wonderful ladies like you, who are also a great source of support, encouragement and inspiration for writers.

Take a look around and look through our many discussions as well as feel free to participate in them, I look forward to seeing you around the group!

I am glad you are here and WELCOME to the group!

Second your thought on SW platform, opportunities to connect are great!
Have been arts writer for newspaper and some mags while writing what I thought was a memoir. Have discovered the material I can't know about is suitable for fictional account. Notion is liberating. May still present memoir as such, but right now am working on novel. So exciting!
Have you started on something new and is it another memoir?
At 3:35pm on October 15, 2010, Judith van Praag said…
Thanks for the explanation Susan. Hardcover out last year, paperback now, eh? Comes to show I'm totally behind the times ;-) If there's one thing I don't like about everything being accessible thanks to the Internet, it's that there is so very much to explore. SW is a good example of what happens when you want to stay abreast of what's going on, you don't have any time left to write. Can't have that, can we? So I'm double pleased to happen upon your adventures!

Just landed on your profile page here, via your blog post about renting your furnished apartment. What a surprise to see the promishing cover of your book. That's funny. Didn't realize your memoir was published already. I'm curious what's behind the door, but also wonder whether the material you're posting on this blog is straight from the book, or not.

>I just spent time on your blog and LOVED the piece on Julia Glass

Thanks, Susan. I think that piece is amazing - so inspiring! And Julie is just a lovely person. I've just started her new book - really good!
