Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankfor for Jon Bard of Children's Book Insider who chose my weekly Tuesday Memory Challenge for entry in Best Children's Lit Blog Posts of the Day! Woohoo! Thank you Jon and Laura.

If you haven't seen this new feature of Children's Book Insider, what they are doing is picking blog posts that they find the most interesting, informative and helpful to those writing for children. Jon does a YouTube video promo of the blog highlighting why he thought it was a top post of the day.

 You can check out the current top posts of the day at any time on their blog.

That's very cool, Susan. I like your memory challenges (even if I don't comment). You help get the rusty wheels turning.

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
