Here is what you might have missed around She Writes this past week.

My first week of life in New York commenced today with a formal introduction to SheWrites, as I am an intern for this summer. It's very strange, because in many ways I feel that I've been here for far longer. These last 7 days in Williamsburg feel comparable to the final 5 weeks of my last semester at school, where I was scrambling with final papers and grappling with the idea that everything I was doing was penultimate. Second-to-last this, second-to-last that. The terrifying realization…Continue

Summer Vacation Season is Here!
I always intend to write while I travel. It's not easy to fit writing time into the over-scheduled itineraries I can't seem to stop planning. Still, sometimes I manage to stick to a writing schedule. When I do, here's what works for me:
1. I keep my tools simple and light.
I carry a notebook and pen. (Maybe I’m paranoid, but I make sure to buy pens that won’t leak or explode in flight .) If you love gadgets, try writing on…

I know, I know. This is the assignment for last Wednesday's creative writing class. But I'm finally getting around to posting it here, for your amusement. At least I assume you'll be amused. Yuliya kept laughing as I read it aloud. Feel free to let me know what you think.
The assignment was to create a character from your name spelled backwards (Roxanne = Ennaxor) and then the class came up with where the character was from (ethnicity & time period). The class told…Continue

It was an autumn of the ridiculous. You know the kind in which nothing appears as it should be, except that which is tragic or no longer desired. Even nature had forgotten itself that autumn; and the leaves of the poplar trees festered into deep shades of mottled green, instead of lacing the ground with their familiar golden brown hues. On the ponds and parks grew a moldy parasitic mildew, blackened and unnatural. The stillness that followed crept in at such a slow rate that it was…Continue

This week I’d like to introduce you to an aspiring new author. Her name is Emma Brooke Jolly and she just so happens to be my granddaughter. Last Thursday was her last day as a first grader. She brought home piles of work she’d done throughout the year. One folder contained stories and poems she had written. I couldn’t wait to feast my eyes on her words.
I took the hand written pages out to my rocking chair on the carport and started reading while Emma played with her five…Continue
