About Writers In the Storm. Wonderful blog about writing & writers. Any writer faces the storm within & without. Please visit them & enjoy.
“We chose Writers in the Storm as the name of this blog because every writer must weather the storm within: self doubt, rejection, deadlines, and balancing our writing passion with everyday life. Not to mention the storm raging outside – the paradigm shift in the publishing industry.
Subjects will range from our writing processes and critique techniques to fun things we do to relax – like knitting, doll collecting, motorcycling, crafting handmade cards, surviving motherhood, healthy living tips, our trips and travels. We’ll also be dishing in This Week at Critique Group.”
I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine!
I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends.
I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice
I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun
I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
