Characters write back

In response to yesterday's letters to characters they, in return, have written back.

Dear Author,
There's that saying about hiding in plain sight and how it makes it harder for people to find you. Do you think that's true?

Letting people know what I am really feeling gives them power. Giving away your power is never a good thing. Trust me on that.



Dear Author,
I'm a woman in a man's world, of course I'm tough. But I'm a mom too. Don't forget about that.


Dear Author,
Have you ever done something and wished you could undo it? Have you ever had to wake up every single day of your life and sit across the breakfast table from someone who reminds you, just by his appearance about how much you screwed up?

Any guts I had rotted out years ago. You know that. I know I was an idiot many times over. I know he is going to find out the truth. And I know that everything is going to hit the proverbial fan when he does.

Flyboy's dad

Dear Author,
If you would give me a name I might tell you where I am. Until then you're out of luck.


There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

I've been getting a lot of e-mails from my characters lately.

Dear Author:

What's up with you making my life a living hell?

No love,

Yeah. Mostly like that one.

I had someone tell me that my MC is too depressing and needs some happy pills.

I'm really liking the dad right now.

Thanks. I just have to be careful that he doesn't overpower the MC.

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
