Make it your party!

or JOIN my party! Write a poem with fifteen beats. That's my party!

course, Susan, I would require NOTHING if you just attended an actual "party" somewhere here between Massachusetts and California....

I think my head is spinning. :-) (did you bonk me with your canoe paddle?) LOL

Educate me, please. Can 15 words have more or less than 15 beats?

I would LOVE to go to an actual party somewhere between Massachusetts and California....I'm just waiting for an invitation. ;-)

Say where. Say when. Let's do a LJ meetup in the middle.

Too many questions...

BUT...

15 beats is actually a syllable count. So, yes it could be less than 15 words but maybe not...

and YES! my good LJ-friend, who I only met once: jenlibrarian has often suggest an LJ summit...somehwere between the US coasts where we ALL could meet!

NOW wouldn't THAT be cool?

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
