A Writer's Life . . .

Staying Evergreen

Hey, you! So glad that you stopped by . . .

Welcome to my blog!

 

Here you will find a place for comfort (food for thought) and inspiration (you got this), or to learn about plain 'ole me. I mean, hey, it's real, and it's life.

You will find my blog to be separated into three categories: Write on; Muse on (thoughts of inspiration), So, that's my life? (my life as a writer, a mother, a wife, and a teacher), and It Takes Two (the creation and evolution of "The Will of Time").

 

So, welcome aboard. I'm glad you could make it. Check back daily for updates and new stories or inspirations. 

 

 

 

 

The Craft of Writing . . .

Updated: Jul 26, 2018


"Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words." - Mark Twain.


Though I never met the guy, I must say Mr. Twain was 'spot-on' about this craft called writing. I mean anyone can write; my two kids write for goodness sake. (exhibit A)

Okay, maybe not the best example, but truly we all write (e-mails, text messages, Facebook, etc.) We all can fluff a sentence with adjectives of purple ponies and adverbs of Olympians running quickly. However, it is the individual will-power and mental strength of a writer - one who takes the craft seriously - to take something so relevant, so fundamental as a 'word' and choose the right one.
