I'm not new to talking, sharing ideas, or stating my opinion, especially stating my opinion! After all, I taught elementary school for 30 years! However, my audience has typically been smaller,just family, the classroom, or just talking to myself!

My blog has two goals: be an outlet for sharing thoughts on writing children's books and the path to publication (got my fingers crossed that I'll get there) and a place to chronicle my journey of losing my sight. Sometimes I imagine these two paths will overlap .

Write From The Soul

Okay, so I'm doing my typical, writerly thing, I'm blog reading. Have to keep up to speed with my blog-sisters and blog-brothers. Well, on of my favorite blogs to follow is Lisa and Laura Write-  2 real life sisters who write together. Now if you're a blog reader, you'll know that we are always trying to increase the number of followers we have (which basically means we want more people to read our blogs and we're willing to beg, pled, offer prizes, and a few more things to get readers to sign up as followers!) Lisa and Laura- known amongst bloggers as LiLa, have just hit 500 followers- a mega accomplishment in my book since I'm still trying to reach 50! In oder to celebrate, they are offering some wonderful prize packages, especially for people who enjoy reading YA books, love chocolate, and appreciate author swag!!! In order to be eligible for the prize drawing, you must:
  • be one of their followers
  • comment on their contest post
  • blog or Tweet or Facebook about the contest- and earn an extra entry

Sooooooooo, I am now officially eligible because I loyally follow them- they are hilarious, commented, and have now blogged.

Keep your fingers crossed for me. The winners will be announced next Wed, April 14th!

P.S.  Here's the link to their blog post:
