TheWriterStuff is Writin' Stuff!

Man, I haven't been this busy writing in many moons. Between revising my middle grade story, writing and critquing for my children's writing workshop, not to mention all the writing I do at work, I'm one busy woman. I'm also perfecting a story that I intend to enter into the Writer's Digest short story contest as well as working on devotionals for the MCC Writers blog. Then there's the adult novel, but that's on the backburner for now.

In addition, I'll be doing a school visit soon and participating in a project to introduce more writing into Baltimore schools. I'm excited about both.

It's all good because this is what I was meant to do, one of the things anyway. (He isn't finished with me yet!)

Here's Comes the Sun...flowers that is


One of my passions, although I'm not good at it yet, is photography. I hope to combine my love of writing and taking pictures into a children's book some day. In the meantime, I work on improving my picture taking abilities.

A week ago I went to a meeting of the local chapter of the National League of American Pen Women, a group composed not only of writers but artists of all types. Right across from the library where the meeting was held sat a field of sunflowers. In fact, there were sunflowers all over the area. Everyone was taking pictures of them so I joined in. Here's my best shot. There may be hope for me as a photographer after all.
