Thanks for the great reviews!

I have received some great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and I am appreciative of the people who took the time and energy to record them. Sometimes I read a great book and don’t take the time post a review.  Writing has made me much more aware of how beneficial a good review is to an author and I promise to do better in the future.

I am preparing to spend eighteen months in Atlanta, Georgia and trying to pare down what I need to take for my writing. What did writers do before laptops? They certainly have made life easier–okay and harder too when things don’t work. 🙂

Although I’ve raised 10+ children, I really learned patience from technology. I’ll admit sometimes I yelled at my kids, but I could always explain, apologize and negotiate with them. I can’t do any of those things with my computer. All my explanations count for nothing. Either I do it right or I don’t. It’s as easy (or as hard) as that. More than once I have decided to stop in the middle of an application or cancel something I am working on and then had to calm myself down as I realized that it would not be to my advantage to throw everything away. I had to take a deep breath and punch yet another key. 🙂 Still, technology has made writing a lot easier and I appreciate that.

The poem I am adding today (in Published Poetry) was published in 2014 after it won an honorable mention in a contest sponsored by The Poetry Society of Tennessee.
