Poets, Authors, Contest, Children’s Magazines,
Newspaper, OWL:

I love the freedom to enjoy life where I explore
various creative topics. My mind is like a sticky,
tight spun spider web. I catch ideas out of the air,
causing some strain until I am able to release a
few to paper. I am constantly writing and rewrite
on paper or in my daily thoughts. Who knows,
I may have a big sale and it will be like winning
the lotto.

I write short pieces; I sell some and others
float free. In 2010, I am dedicating more time
to submitting larger pieces.

A photo and a small article was published in
The Mountaineer Echo newspaper, Thurs, Nov 26, it
was a shot of encouragement.

I am still trying to catch-up with photos
I took as my church's historian.
I think I take too many.

I am having problems creating CD’s
for the submarine veterans I did two.
I haven’t been able to do more. I have
several request for the 53 photos I took
during the Veterans Day event at Mountain
Home Military Memorial Plaza.

Baxter County Library: The Friends of the Library
had a successful booksale last weekend and an
enjoyable meeting Wednesday. They are a special group.
We hope to move into the new library July, 2010.

The Mountain Home, AR Chamber of Commerce’s
beautiful new brochure mentioned Twin Lakes Writers
under Community Cultures.

I continue to write poems on David L. Harrison’s blog.
It has been a learning experience. I have written several.
He features a monthly word and you have to write a
poem incorporating that word. The poems for November
are up where you can go and vote for your favorite at

Last Friday night at Boxcar Willie’s Motel
the Ozarks Writers League had a catered dinner
and open-mic. I read a poem.

I receive “The Writer” magazine newsletter.
It filled with helpful information and some free-lance
writing jobs are listed.

Thanks Kerri. I checked out the blog and I found it very interesting. One of the Springfield writers groups have challenged their members to write a novel in a month. Interesting!

Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell said...

Yes, I think that is the NANO challenge (I believe what it is called). It happens each November.

It is Jano sponsored by Sleuth's Ink 50,000-word novel in 31 days.
It starts I believe on January 1, 2010.
