When working on a deadline, a writer cannot afford to even think of such a cliched stigma associated with writing. You sit in the seat and begin writing. At first, the writing may not be something you keep, but eventually, the flow begins and good and worthy writing arrives. (less)

I love choosing the perfect word, the perfect pairing of words, and seeing them pirouette like ballerinas into paragraphs to lure the reader to think, sigh, and want more. (less)

Love, Loss, and What I Wore--Sweet and Subtle Depth

Love, Loss, and What I Wore Love, Loss, and What I Wore by Ilene Beckerman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I met Ilene Beckerman at the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop at the University of Dayton. Ilene is a striking older woman in a sparkling headscarf that complements her "diamond" nose jewel. Her gypsy countenance is hard to miss. It was after we struck up a friendly banter that I discovered she is the author of the subtly moving "Love, Loss, and W... Read more of this blog post »

Loved the beginning of the book, but it could have been edited in the last quarter, as Rand tends to repeat her point many times over. I was inspired by the main character Dagny Taggart as a powerful railroad executive and her relationships with the ...more

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott
