Finished Novel

Book Cover

I finished my novel today and I'm feeling excited, proud, sad and appreciative.  This novel is based on four diaries I was given by my mother-in-law.  They were her cousin's who lived in Washington, D.C. from 1942 to 1945.  I created the cover art and I want to self publish in order to get it out…

Back to Work

It feels so good to be sitting here in front of my computer this morning. For the past four months I’ve been playing grandma to my granddaughter and travel companion to my hubby. What an awesome, busy, whirlwind of a life I’ve experienced these past few months. Starting the summer off in late May my nephew, Luke marries his high school sweetheart, and another nephew, Wesley announces he and his lovely wife are going to be proud new parents in late October. Not to mention my niece, Andi tells…

Finding a right criminal defense attorney New York leaves us in cold feet. However, it is not as hard as we think. The New York criminal justice system is complex and complicated, which allows a wrongdoer to take an opportunity to serve the society, if he or she can show an improvement in his morality.  …

"A Memoir is Not a Status Update" - New Yorker article by Dani Shapiro

I was blown away by Dani Shapiro's exquisite article on memoir writing in this week's New Yorker.  She writes of the Facebook era, where so much is shared online - and makes the point that: "In order to write a memoir, I've sat still inside the swirling vortex of my own complicated history like a piece of old driftwood, battered by the sea." No instant gratification swirls over us writers as we create our stories; instead we "turn out small, personal sorrows and individual tragedies…

6 Tips To Get the Best From Your Writers Retreat

I'm on deadline for part of a book and a brand new essay and oh, yes, I need to catch up on some emails. So I did what always works: I packed up my notebooks, laptop, books, pens and sweat pants and booked myself a room at my favorite …

O is for Ottawa Ontario

 This will be the biggest stretch I’ve made, sorry.  Would you believe there is only one country that begins with the letter “O?” Can you guess it? I’ll give you a second…. Oman. I knew this because several of my awesome students are from there. I did not, however, know it was the only one. So I shall write to you about Canada, specifically, kind of, Ottawa Ontario, for which I feel I should receive bonus…

How I Learned to Type

 

 

In high school, I earned an A in Mr. Finn’s typing despite the fact that at the end of the year I was still using the hunt and peck method. My mother, who had worked as a secretary until my younger sister’s birth, typed all my papers starting in fourth grade through high school. When I…

The Dilemma of the Middle-Aged Woman Who Writes

Do you like to read and write about characters who resemble you now or look more like the person you were 20 years ago? 

This question is prompted by the following from a January NYT column by Fay Weldon. In it, she says:



“Yet older women make up the bulk of the fiction market,” my [middle-aged female] student will protest. “How odd that they don’t want to read about themselves!”



“They do,” I…

[Making the Leap] Fear Not!

I have had great fun this week reading multiple blog posts about making resolutions, avoiding resolutions, or setting themes for the coming year. I've also read a lot of articles about the benefits or harm of setting goals-- how they can lead the way, provide inspiration or, alternately, become a painful source of…

[DIARY OF A MEMOIRIST] On Not Making Certain New Year’s Resolutions

I thought I would enjoy my break from blogging more than I have. It turns out that I like the discipline of focusing once a week, the way I used to like thinking about what I would narrate for a friend with whom I had dinner once a week, wanting to entertain her with the soap opera of my life. There’s something infinitely more satisfying about the weekly rhythm―storing things up…

Another Year Under The Belt (Literally)

Well, another year has come and gone. What will 2014 deliver? Continued good health or will sickness come knocking at my door, or the door of a loved one? Will the world’s economy continue to escalate into more debt? Might this be the year that Jesus calls His children home?

 

I always feel a bit strange at this time of year, hopeful of things to come, but weary of things yet to do. I know that I need to get into a regular exercise program. Not just my casual stroll around the…
