Handling Memories In Fictional Writing

Writing, Writing Tips December 1, 2016

I’ve been teaching a class for OIRW about deep point of view during November. We’re now nearing the end of the class and I’m going over excerpts from participants’ works in progress as part of the class. One of the things that has come up in going over the excerpts is how to best handle memories in fictional writing, so I thought I’d talk a little bit about that for this blog post.

A Quiet Day Of Gratitude

A Little Bit Spiritual, Gratitude November 25, 2016

We all experience and express gratitude in different ways. Some of us pray and thank God for our blessings. Some of us share what we’re thankful for with others. Some of us post a daily list of what we’re grateful for on Facebook. Some of us write in gratitude journals. I believe that all of these are wonderful ways to express gratitude…and I use many of them myself.

Bright Scrappy Stars Quilt And Black Scrappy Star Quilt Finished!

A Finish!, Crafting, Everything, Items For Pine Ridge, Quilting October 26, 2016

Something shifted a few weeks ago when I made my first pieced backing for the bright swirls quilt. Buying fabric for backings and making the backings suddenly became as much fun as making the tops…and since then I’ve been making fairly swift progress through the big bin in the storage room that holds all the projects that are waiting to be quilted. The bright scrappy stars quilt which I blogged about when I was piecing it and layering it several months ago has finally been completed!
