Blog on!

November was a tremendous learning experience for me. I was able to complete both National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), and when it was done, I still felt the urge to sit at the keyboard and peck away (unlike past years, when I felt creatively burnt out well into the...

Inspired words

In 2009, one of the multi-talented members of our writing group organized a program called, “Inspired Words.” The idea was to use a piece of art in a local museum as the inspiration for our monthly writing prompt.
