MySpace New Year's Blog

So here is the blog I posted on MySpace late last night. I'm reposting here, as I did with the Christmas blog, to share the kind of communication I do with my readers there. It's hugely important to stay connected with readers, and this is one way I do that.


So, like . . . holy crap! Another year dissolves into the ether, and what an amazing year, on so many levels. There's all the awful stuff.... mostly driven by an economy, manipulated in all the… Continue

Holiday Blessings

Wow. Another year dissolves as we happily anticipate the upcoming week. I'd like to say here how much I value each of you. Your friendship. Your communion. Your talent. Your drive to realize your dreams. We share an important goal. Touching the lives of children and teens through our words. How important that is, and how important the need for people who strive to do that, through tough economic times and at a time when some opine that books will become obsolete.

To that, I give a… Continue

My MySpace Thanksgiving blog

Thought you might be interested in the kind of blogs I do on MySpace for special days like Thanksgiving. Posted at 7 a.m. Thanksgiving day, before I baked a single pie!

Giving thanks for YOU!

Another Thanksgiving! It's early here, just past 6 a.m. and the house sleeps soundly. I'm up, thinking about all I have to do in preparation. We have family up from Los Angeles, and dinner will be around three. The gathering was supposed to be larger, but things happen, as you know.… Continue

Critique groups yesterday and today

I had the pleasure of sharing a critique table with two fairly new groups.... one yesterday in Carson and another this afternoon in Reno. What wonderful writers and discussion! I hope both groups remain viable and enthusiastic. Monica and Julie, please go ahead and add your groups here. And for those interested in a group near home, please check these out.

Oh, and several people came down from Truckee to Reno this afternoon. As winter rears its chilly head, you may very well choose… Continue

Please enjoy this new feature of SCBWI Nevada

Hello everyone! Suzy and I hope you will take advantage of our new social networking page. This is a great way to get to know each other, organize critique groups or online critiques, learn more about events, and even talk about what's bugging you. Just please stay respectful! You may say anything you like. However, if someone chooses to be hurtful, he or she will be asked to tone it down or stop posting. Blog comments, etc. can be moderated, but we would prefer to work on the honor system.… Continue

No, thank you very much! :-) I'm excited to hopefully attend a meeting soon! I haven't been able to due to all of my traveling. ;-). I look forward to meeting you and to learn what this group is all about. Yay! :-).

Hi Ellen. I look forward to networking! I sent you an email but it came back as an unlisted email address. Could you possibly send me your email address again? Thank you.

Hi Ellen! This is such a great way to have better visibility of the SCBWI community in northern Nevada! Great idea. Kudos to you and Suzi!

Thanks. I work on weekends, however, and I'm afraid I will miss many meetings and critiques.

WoooHeee! I'm here, treading water with absolutely no clue as to what I'm doing. Pics to follow, the cosmos willing . . . New hard drive, new os, new apps, new backup = no Asilomar, boo hoo.
