Of Dogs and Writing - Listening to your body


Cassie takes a pill every morning to help keep these bumps she gets under control. Even so, sometimes they get out of control and we have up the medication and add a dose of steroids. Having her on the steroids changes things. She doesn't feel that great. She doesn't want to play or get excited when someone comes to the door. She basically just wants to sleep in her crate away from the rest of us.

I've got a cold that I am trying to kick before my trip. I'm not feeling great and I'm not very excited about much of anything. I just want to sleep.

So I'm going to take yet another lesson from Cassie and do just that.
There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

Go for it. I'm getting that cold, too! Yes, I've got the deadline, but I'm just working slowly toward it and allowing myself all the honey I need today!

Feel better. :)

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
