Do You Believe In Inspiration?

  I'm not done writing.  Frankly, I hope I'm never done with it.  Over the last few years, I've been thinking about writing, thinking about where to write, what to write about, how to turn this into more of a hobby...maybe.  I guess I've been looking for inspiration. When I started this blog in 2013 it … Continue reading Do You Believe In Inspiration?

So Far, So Good

In response to The Daily Post's writing prompt: "State of Your Year." I must admit that, thankfully, there have been no tremendous upheavals or catastrophic events in my world.  I may be tempting fate, but, at this moment I'm willing to throw caution to the wind. I've not been writing nearly as much as I used to … Continue reading So Far, So Good

Post from Day Six: AmeriCorps

This was my post from day 6 when I started this project.  I heard from so many of the AmeriCorps members appearing in the picture at the bottom of the post.  They have all gone on to be successful teachers, social workers, business professionals, managers, parents.  They also continue to provide leadership in their respective … Continue reading Post from Day Six: AmeriCorps

Wordle of the Day, What It Says About My Blog

I thought it might be fun, as I close in on the last couple of weeks of my year of daily thank-you's, to use the Wordle site to create a picture of what I've blogged about over the last year.  I was pleasantly surprised to find this after I put my site's address into the … Continue reading Wordle of the Day, What It Says About My Blog

20 Days and Counting

It's been a great way to mark time; to blog every day for a year.  I have 20 days to go before the year is up.  As I get ready for the next phase I was reading about the Blogging University's "Writing 201 Finding Your Story."  I'm on the fence about signing up for it, … Continue reading 20 Days and Counting

Punctuation, Perfectly Positioned, Promotes Productive Prose

We all have strange relationships with punctuation — do you overuse exclamation marks? Do you avoid semicolons like the plague? What type of punctuation could you never live without? Tell us all about your punctuation quirks! I am semi-colon happy; I admit it, freely.  I used to be comma happy but I learned my lesson.  … Continue reading Punctuation, Perfectly Positioned, Promotes Productive Prose

Who do we thank for TGIF?

So, it's Friday and I find myself again at the end of a busy week not sure where to start writing.  I'm not one of those writers/bloggers who does much about outlining thoughts for the week or planning ahead.  In fact, I have less than 50 days left of my 365-day journey that is this … Continue reading Who do we thank for TGIF?

The Butterfly Light Award

How cool is this; an award for something I enjoy doing every day--what could be better?  This morning when I opened up in connection to Word Press, I found a message from Charlene.  She'd nominated me for a Butterfly Light Award.  I read on to find out that recognizes those bloggers who spread a little … Continue reading The Butterfly Light Award

My Award Acceptance Speech

In your imaginary award acceptance speech (yes, we know you have one), who’s the very last — and most important — person you thank? "...And finally, the most important thank you goes out to my family...all of them:  parents, brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews nieces, cousins, aunts, uncles.  I've been blessed to have all of … Continue reading My Award Acceptance Speech

Thankfully, I Do Not Rule the World

You’ve been given the superpower to change one law of nature. How do you use it? Thankfully, I'm not in charge of the world!  I'll leave that to the good Lord above to keep an eye things.  I also am not sure I can name more than one or two of the laws of nature, … Continue reading Thankfully, I Do Not Rule the World
