A. LaFaye A. LaFaye's blog:
They say every word in a poem should be essential and that's true. Part of having just the right word involves knowing knowing words by their meaning, their connotations, their sound, their stresses, and their syllables, but it's also about knowing how to weed your work.

Like pulling weeds in a g... Read more of this blog post »

Sharon Kay Penman Sharon Kay Penman's blog:
May 4, 1471 was a date of great significance for the House of York---the battle of Tewkesbury, which brought the Wars of the Roses to a bloody end. It was also one of my favorite battles—in the sense that it was exciting to write about. I would not have dared to invent the shocking events of that... Read more of this blog post »

I busted my ass this weekend refinishing our deck, scrubbing patio furniture, and planting flowers. Last night, a migraine came upon me, waking me from my sleeps–not pleasant. Got up with teens to take them to school, and have a meeting soon with show-runner that I’m working for–because actual WO... Read more of this blog post »

The name wasn't Longbottom; in truth I can't remember what it was but I was sufficiently intrigued to pursue the question. Who was Edie?

Did you do that as a child? Did your parents sometimes talk about people they clearly knew well but people you had never heard about? People who, as soon as your... Read more of this blog post »

Clarissa Simmens Clarissa Simmens's blog:
Yin and Yang of May
Maypole dancing then mourning
Long ago Kent State
Seems like only yesterday
Shocked by innocents’ murders

May flowers will grow
We will laugh and sing again
But what comes this month?
This month of beauty and love
No holiday for violence…

Well, it wasn't boring.


First the Lions traded the No.23 pick for a guy they once cut. NFL teams rarely trade to get players back, but when they do, it's usually because they hated letting them go.


Manny Ramirez wasn't that guy.

His Father’s Eyes – Snippet 01


His Father’s Eyes


By David B. Coe


Chapter 1


It burns and burns and burns, a pain he can’t salve, a fire he can’t extinguish. White, yellow, red, orange. Shades of pale blue sometimes, but then white again. Always white. White hot. Pure white. White for wedding gowns...

Has a culture of convenience and consumerism changed the way we preach the Gospel?

What if I told you that Jesus didn’t want us to win converts? What if I said that in all of Scripture we are never told to convert anyone? What if I proposed that people accepting...

I've had a writer revelation recently, and I need to voice it because it wasn't something I was prepared for. It's sort of like a tire in the mud, spinning and spinning, digging a rut. And instead of killing the engine, sometimes we just keep spinning and don't realize there's another way out.
