Blog Favorites

  This week while I decide which direction to go in next, (thinking travel notes based on three years in Italy), I decided to just read everyone else’s blog in blogs I follow and list my weekly favorites to share with all you. For incredible, ongoing inspiration, I like… Bucket List Publications: http://lesleycarter.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/life-is-an-adventure-surf-lessons-in-fiji/ For just plainContinue reading “Blog Favorites”

Break’s Over; Let’s Get Back To Work, America!

Can good old-fashioned hard work, adapting to the changing marketplace and holding Government accountable for how they spend our taxes, save America? Is anyone buying the Government is going to create jobs story, waiting around for that to happen?  Because here is some home truth about semantics:  the Government does not create jobs. The USContinue reading “Break’s Over; Let’s Get Back To Work, America!”

Physicists, Psychics and the Sixth Sensibility

Ahhh, Halloween, the time of year, when paranormal becomes just plain normal for a spell.  Therefore, I’m dedicating this special Halloween edition of my blog to the sixth sense. No, not the film, but that mysterious sense we all have, but just ignore. Why do I say this?  I’ve always had keen interest in the paranormal.Continue reading “Physicists, Psychics and the Sixth Sensibility”

Can Republicans and Democrats be friends?

I was talking to one of my very best friends today, KC, whom I have known all of my life, who knows me better than my relatives do.  Sisters by choice, we can talk about anything, even politics and she suggested I write about this:  can Republicans and Democrats be friends? I would say aContinue reading “Can Republicans and Democrats be friends?”

Voting Rights

Distracted by the coverage of the upcoming Presidential election, I cannot write about anything else.  It is unfathomable to me that there are people who are either apathetic or uninformed when it comes to politics. Maybe my fixation is a result of living in close proximity to where all the action happens, near our NationsContinue reading “Voting Rights”

Boost your writing enthusiasm; attend a Writers Conference.

Who should attend? Because I thought I needed a finished novel to attend a writer’s conference, I waited until I had what I thought was a complete manuscript before attending one.  In actuality, that may have been a mistake.  The knowledge I gained from attending the conference helped me to redirect my writing efforts, toContinue reading “Boost your writing enthusiasm; attend a Writers Conference.”

Query Letters: Quantity or Quality?

I met a writer at a conference who said he sent 300 query letters before self-publishing.  I read some of his work, he is a good writer; but is writing 300 query letters a good strategy?  Based on my research over the past several years, I would say that quality is always better than quantity.Continue reading “Query Letters: Quantity or Quality?”

Why Black and White Films Trump Reality TV

So I’m flipping through the three hundred or so channels on my new overpriced and overrated ‘bundle’ and finding absolutely NOTHING that holds my attention.  After a hosing by the last ‘bundle’ company, you would think I would have learned my lesson. In truth, I could pull the plug, plop the TV on the curbsideContinue reading “Why Black and White Films Trump Reality TV”

Sharing the Gift of Literature

“We read to know we are not alone.” – C.S. Lewis After completing the seven book series “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis, my ten-year-old son, asked: “Do you ever get that sad feeling when you’ve finished a good series and you can’t continue (to read) because there are no more books?” My heartContinue reading “Sharing the Gift of Literature”

#Putting Some Win in Your Sales

Question for the week:  Can you sell your words without selling your soul? If you directly show the desire to sell something or worse, call yourself a Salesperson, can you escape negative connotations?  The word Salesman calls to mind images of polyester leisure suits, used cars and telemarketers hawking something you don’t want, refusing to take no for anContinue reading “#Putting Some Win in Your Sales”
