Let's schedule a time to talk. I checked your website, and I must say it is a huge but rewarding undertaking. I wish you all the luck! If I can be of any help, please let me know. Also, you may want to check out The Story Plant. They are doing some good work. If you want, I can put you in touch with one of the co-founders -- just to compare notes, maybe?
I haven't been on SheWrites much lately. Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose. I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though. Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders. I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group. How about YOU?
Hello there! I hope my message finds you well. I reviewed your profile and wanted to thank you for your service to our country. Also, a very big congrats on establishing your publishing house! Impressive.
I was wondering if you or someone you knew might be interested in collaborating on a choreopoem as a playwright or choreographer. The premise focuses on the Black experience in America. As a heads-up, I am based out of Atlanta. Let me know… Take care.
I think that's true for me too. Sometimes I like to play the "What if" game with myself, "What if I hadn't moved in with that boyfriend when I was 18," "What if I had gone straight to college instead of going straight into the work world," "What if I hadn't gone to college," What if I had never had my kids," "Would life be much simpler?" "Would I still be the person I am today?"
I have made mistakes, like everyone else, I have regrets for those mistakes, but I wouldn't change a thing about how my life has transpired up until now. It's made me who I am today, and I like me. :o) I love my kids, I have a good job, good family and friends. I wouldn't change the good or the bad about my past because my life experiences have changed me in positive ways. I have a stronger faith, I am more compassionate, less judgmental, and wiser, and humble enough to say I'm still learning. Also, I discovered how much I love to write, and am more creative than ever. I feel my past has shaped that.
So I'm with you, I hope I'm never so 'well adjusted' that I can't look back. :o)
Thanks Regina. I'm a seriously green beginner here. Any tips, or links to guide for beginning writers are welcome. I must say, I'm not a beginner writer, but a beginner non-technical/non-audit related writer. :o)
Thanks Regina! And also for the comment. I'll post about the conference on the thread I started. I thought I did already, but I'm losing track of where I write what! Does that happen to you? I like your site by the way!
The New Renaissance Ink website looks great, Regina. Now that I feel days away (literally) from finishing my novel, I can take some time to breathe . . .and catch up. Best Wishes for a Fruitful New Year.
Hi Regina, Thanks for your reply to mine on the discussion board, I have to chuckle because I realise how much you are adding to your online contact by initiating the discussion, I don't think you needed convincing of its merit but there's nothing like the experience of asking a question in a discussion and connecting with everyone who responds to realise the value, that was my initiation into SheWrites, I asked people in the Wordpress group to share their blog and WOW, what an amazing journey that was/is. Good luck with your writing and keep connecting. Claire
"I'm working on a chapter book now, the second in a series called "Weirdville". It's all set in this small town named Weirdville where, like the name suggests, strange things happen. It's a series of stand-alone horror…"

A little vampire girl who's afraid of ghosts, and monsters, and the dark? Oh yeah."
