2009 Ice Storm Refugee

Posted 02-05-2009 at 11:17 PM by sigmagirl91
Last week saw my state wrestling with the ravaging effects of a severe ice storm. This ice storm robbed over a half-million people of power and forced them to seek shelter with relatives, friends, or local agencies so as to keep warm. I was one of those people. My power went out on last Wednesday and did not get restored until Sunday afternoon. In the meantime, I stayed with my brother for two days and my mother for two days. While I am thankful for the generosity of my family, I still feel...

Why can't we leave comments for any blogs other than our own? I tried to comment on another blogger's post, but it wouldn't let me. I know I have comments enabled. Could be an admin. thing.

The Writing Life

Posted 01-17-2008 at 01:47 PM by sigmagirl91
I went to my fiction writing class, not really knowing what to expect (sort of). I didn't know what sort of writers would be in this class with me, but for awhile, I was totally overawed to be in their presence. I, who began writing at age nine, was overawed, paralyzed by the talent that was in that room.

Among the eight of us, there are writers of every genre....historical fiction, historical romance, pulp fiction, contemporary fiction, memoir, and children's literature. The...

Something to Keep Me Busy

Posted 01-16-2008 at 06:22 PM by sigmagirl91
Aside from walking every day...which does a lot for my physical and emotional well-being, I will take a fiction writing course starting tonight until March 5 through a local writing center. Then...on February 23, I will sit in on a nonfiction course, which, according to the center's newsletter, promises to teach its participants how to "write compelling feature articles for newspapers and magazines."

I am excited about doing more writing because I haven't done much lately...aside...

Reader's Quote Part 13

Posted 01-16-2008 at 12:05 PM by sigmagirl91
From Sula by Toni Morrison:

pg. 92: I don't want to make somebody else. I want to raise myself."

Sula was a free spirit-that is, she came and went as she pleased. As a young, vibrant, educated twenty-something, Sula was more concerned about nurturing a career, making a name for herself than having a family.

Instead of doing the reader's quote daily, I will do it weekly....so that I have more time to come up with quotes to talk about.
