Good ideas.

Most of the stuff written about writing is pretty useless (another ten rules on writing by so and so, anyone?) trudging out the same trite copy (like rule number ten, forget about the rules) and blah, blah, blah. I also have mixed views on WritersDigest.com; they seem to bombard me with once-in-a-lifetime marketing opportunities every twenty seconds but once in a while some of their output is really good. Take this column. It offers more than 60 examples of successful query letters and a response from the agents about why the letters were so good. You can’t ask for more useful than that.

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.
