Hope you will like my garden.
Planting : words for bulbs and plants, Gods' love and kindness for sturdy stems, poetry for healthy leaves, short stories for plant shape, help from friends for pruning, patience and persistance for beautiful blooms.
I am hoping and planning to grow a full fledged author, from this ground.

Old Truck
“Look at that old truck, out here in the middle of nowhere.” John said. “I bet it has a story to tell. Why was it left out here. Who parked it? I think it must be from the nineteen fifties. My father had a truck that bluegreen color, without rust.”
Marion said, “Maybe moonshiners, hid it out. It could have just gotten old and got this spot to sit. Do you think the fence was put up later? Someone must know about it? Take a picture, we can ask if the newspaper will run it. I’m curious to find out.”

I love my new home. Get up early. Dress, put on my
light jacket. Fill a cup, take it to the deck. Sit on the
glider and watch the steam, smell the wonderful
aroma, enjoying the cups warmth in my hands. The
morning is crisp. The jacket isn't quite warm enough
to be cozy, it's invigorating. I made it just in time.
Pale color is breaking across the sky. I'm surprised
how quickly it changes, adding colors and depth. Now
it's illuminating those stark white tree limbs making
great contrast from the bluffs behind them. Starting
my day with joy.

50,000 WORDS IN 30 DAYS.
JANO 2012 I WON !

In October 2009, I heard about
NANOWRIMO. November each year
is National Novel Writers Month,
people from all over the world,
write 50,000 words in 30 days.
At the Sleuth's Ink meeting I asked
about it and several others were
going to do it. One of the members,
Beth Carter said, " A man had to pick
November. No woman has time to do
something that intense with all the
other things to do getting ready for
Thanksgiving and Christmas. How about
us having a write-in this January. We
can call it JANO." We voted to do it
and JANO 2010 was created. I did not
get the 50,000 words in NANOWRIMO 2009,
JANO 2010, NANOWRIMO 2010, JANO 2011,
NANOWRIMO 2011. I finally won JANO 2012,
I did it.I WON. I was asked, "what did
you win?" What was the prize for the win?"
It is self confidence. The knowledge
that I can write fifty thousand words in
thirty days. It is a personal achievement
for me. I like my story.
Now it needs to be edited and submitted.

About Me

My photo
My son,Ken,recently retired after 20 years service in the U.S. Navy. I am very proud of him. Good Friends are a Blessing. Red Hats for Jesus is a fun group, so glad to have this fellowship. The Wednesday Breakfast Club(JEWELS)brought me many wonderful friends. Each one is Special. The Weekly Writers Guild is a very important part of my life. I am the leader, since Nicholas, had to give it up to work more hours. Thanks for passing the torch to me. Emma, Elsie, Claudette, Judy, Betty Jo, I enjoy writing  with you. New interest for us has been gained from joining with other writers at their meetings. Hope to gain lots of new friends there.
