Thinking about writing again










As promised what I will be giving away as part of the One World One Heart. I thought I would do something different. I am giving away five pairs of earrings that I made. I think I will add something else to this; but for now I wanted to have something to show you. To win these, just leave a comment and let me know that you want to enter. I'll choose a winner on March 21st. Check out Lisa's blog for other participants in this great giveaway.


I have been thinking I want to get back to writing again. I was perusing the net the other day and got into some writing blogs and found Pen on fire This is Barbara DemMarco-Barrett's blog; she wrote the book of the same name, I have talked about it before. This was the second blog that I had seen reference to this book by Carolyn See.












The information on revision was recommended. I found the book at our local Barnes and Noble. I love the way this woman writes. The book is great. It is really for those of us either stalled or dreaming of that book they are going to write. I highly recommend it.

This morning I listened to a telecast with Jennifer Louden and Suzanne Falter-Barnes . They hold a writers spa every year for a week in Taos and did this free telecast to give you a taste of their procedures. It was an awesome hour. Two very dynamic ladies really passionate about writing. I think they may post the interview eventually, if that happens I'll include the link here. Meanwhile you can check out their websites.

Quote of the Day: Now,is the operative word. Everything you've put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. - Barbara Sher
