A New Project »

“Write a novel in 100 days?” Hum, I wonder if it can be done,  thought Anne?  Anne read the daily instructions written in the article she found on www.peacecorpswriters.org. She has had it on her computer for at least three years and now she was using it for a reference for her new book. When […]

Olympic Bid, Boo Hoo »

Anne gasped as she imagined every enthusiastic fan from Chicago did as the Olympic committee announced that Chicago was knocked out of the race for the Olympic bid of 2016 on the first round of voting.

Scattered, But Happy »

Anne closed the blinds in her living room for the night as she got a wonderful breath of cool evening air. Another summer month is ending, she thought. Where was time going? She had so much to do to get her new eBook ready to sell. She also knew she had two other books in […]

Creative Energy »

Anne sighed. She is writing a book on How to Write Memoirs. Along with her techniques, she has done research collecting information and tools to help with the writing process. She found herself inundated with references and must weed through files to choose her writings for the book. Sometimes it gets confusing. She wants to […]

Time Will Tell »

Sunday afternoon brings calm to everyone. Whether resting on a lounge chair reading a book or waiting for the coals to get ready to Bar B Q, it is a lazy sort of a day. Well, it was always meant to be a day of rest, thought Anne. This one is no different. She could […]
