Change makers ... or change fakers ? Time for some Reflection .

Sometimes, what we really need is a spark to light our hearts on fire and from then on, motivation is really unnecessary. But sometimes, teams need something more than just a spark, they need a common goal, a common vision and a common motive. …

First Post!

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…

Writing on Vacation

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…

My Trip - Sacramento

When my little brother, Mama and I went through Sacramento on the way to UC Davis for a Public Speaking Contest, we made a quick detour to see the State Capitol. The architecture was breathtaking. It reminded me of how great artists were once revered, encouraged and most importantly funded, to do what they did best: create.

In a time of cheap labor and fast deadlines, nothing great will ever be built again, unless someone begins to take an example from the Medici family and start funding… Continue

Unconvential Ways to Combat Writer's Block

So every now and then I get stuck.  There I am, pen and paper in hand or maybe I'm sitting before my laptop and the words just won't come. Ugh! If you're a writer or artist of any kind then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

There are lots of ways to overcome the creative block, but one of the most fun and unusual methods comes from the quirky duo… Continue

Creative Writing Assignment: Ennaxor

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…

Stalking the Dreaded Cutworm

On the way to pick up the children from school, they see the cowboy standing by the side of the road and realize it was indeed Memorial Day weekend. For the rest of the summer it will be open season for guests, both week-enders and those who drop in on their way back from Topanga Days.

But they have plans. Tonight, the avid gardeners and their friends will stalk the deadly cutworm.

As all…

Autumn Madness

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…

An Author Is Born

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…
