I love fast cars and fast motorcycles. My husband recently returned from CA and brought back pictures of the cars used in the movie for Too Fast Too Furious. Not only are those some sweet looking cars, but that is also one of my favorite movies.
I hope everyone has a Happy Easter and a nice relaxing day. Hopefully warmer weather is around the corner.
I was talking to a friend recently who is a fellow writer. It was interesting to see how in line our thought process and writing strategies are. I was trying to explain why I hand write everything and then type it. My friend immediately understood my reasoning and then explained his reasoning for the same process. It was a nice realization that I am not the only person in the world that still prefers pen and paper over a tablet or laptop. I have talked to several writers in the last six months and most of us outline to a degree, some of us use an outline from beginning to end where others used the technique when they were struggling with a scene or a chapter. We are unique individuals and our writing has it's own voice, so whatever works for you regardless if it is pen and paper or the latest tablets...write on and write proudly.
I have been a writer since I could hold a pencil, even though the words or scribbles made no sense to anyone except me. I read an article recently titled "When Can You Call Yourself a Writer." I thought about that article and realized that it is not how many books you publish, articles that you write, or poems that you create that make you a writer. Being a writer is part of you. You write because you are not complete if you do not write regardless if it is for five minutes or five hours. That is true for me. Writing is an absolute must for me, it is like the air that I breathe and the coffee that I drink, it is an absolute must. I can honestly say that I am a writer and so very proud of it.
Yesterday I learned that one or more of my poems will be published. I will not know the exact number of poems that are published until the reception for all of the contributing authors. I am so excited by this news. I have been writing more cultural poems so it is an honor that they are being recognized.
Today is the Irish celebration in Erin. It looks like it is going to be a sunny beautiful day. Yeah!
In Tennessee weather is so unpredictable. One day it is 60 and the next day it is snowing. I am so ready for warm weather and to be rid of sickness.
I was reading an article in a writer's magazine and an agent was talking about this amazing pitch by an author, Gennifer Albin. She is the author of Crewel. Of course, I immediately Googled this author and went to her website. Wow! The agent was correct her pitch was amazing. I have Crewel now on my wishlist. I will be buying it very soon. I am always looking for an amazing read and I think I have found it.
Sharon loves to read mysteries, science fiction, and fantasy. She loves the fact that a book can take you anywhere if you let it.
