Prompt: Mirror, Mirror

“When I look in the mirror, I . . .” . . . can’t believe the woman I’ve become. Where have the years gone? When did those little crow’s feet form in the corners of my eyes? When did I become so shapeless? Who am I now? When […]

Writing Prompts #3

An opening line … 20 minutes … no self-editing … 3 … 2 … 1 … Write! They say Old Weezie’s been reading palms out of her run-down shack for a hundred years or more. Though she doesn’t look so old. I’ve been visiting her shack ever since […]

Writing Prompts #2

An opening line, 20 minutes, no self-editing … let’s do this! My husband disappeared on August 28, 1998. One minute he was there, beside me browsing the stalls in the busy Farmers’ Market, and the next he wasn’t. At first I thought he must have just popped into […]

I’ve been informally involved with the group off and on for over a decade, but now it’s official. So that’s pretty exciting! […]

On Being Brave

Well it’s all out there now! This week I have been blogging very publicly, not just on this site, but yesterday I also revealed a second site called Simply Fierce. The response has been positive so far. I’m getting lots of support from family, friends and other readers. […]

Why I Write

Sometimes when you’re in a creative rut it’s good to think about why you create in the first place and remind yourself why it means so much to you. The reality is that if you are a writer or an artist you probably aren’t driven to create because […]

Dawn Comes Early

I am literally up at the crack of dawn this morning, despite not getting to bed until nearly 1 am. I must truly be feeling better. This morning my mom and four of my aunts, her sisters, are heading west to visit my other aunt, their other sister, […]
