More Folks To Follow

Like you don’t already have more cool blogs to look at than you have time for, right? Well, here are some more. You’ll thank me later.

The multi-talented Dani Greer has a blog I didn’t know about called News From Nowhere: Views on Writing, Crafting, Gardening, Living, Loving. She’s participating in the A-to-Z Blog Challenge, so you get a new nugget of goodness every day this month!

Another participant is author/artist Mary Montague Sikes on her Notes Along the Way. She’s DOING A PAINTING EVERY DAY!

Author Christopher Kokoski is not taking part in the challenge, but his posts are always interesting, for readers as well as for writers.

A wonderful young friend of mine, Eleanor Scott, writes a column for Metropulse about life as she sees it. It’s great stuff. Here’s one called The Weeds of Civilization about daffodils. And here’s an even better one called Shooting the Moon about good neighbors in a “bad” neighborhood. That, my friends, is writing.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: What is life like in your neighborhood? In the one where you grew up? How about your characters’ neighborhoods?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Boy! could I go on about BAD neighbors!
    That rental property next door was a nightmare. An ever-changing one, by the way, since the families rarely stayed beyond their year-to-year leases.
    (This is related to the “Being accused of being a witch” era. It focuses your mind wonderfully to be accused of that. Although, I DID have a really huge black cat…))

      LOL! People never seem to get it: If I were a witch, there would be a damn sight more toads in the world.
