A native Californian, Jackie Ullerich was born in Los Angeles, grew up in San Diego and attended UCLA, where she graduated with honors, earning a secondary teaching credential in theater arts and English. She also attained Master Teacher status, which qualified her to train and supervise student teachers at the high school level.

In a major change of venue, Jackie left the classroom for the world stage to travel and live in a variety of places, both in the U.S. and overseas, with her Air Force husband.

Her years of living in Turkey and Greece coincided with changes in government, including tanks in the streets. But hostile environments were offset by exploration of ancient cultures and the colorful tapestries of contemporary life.

The most important thing is to come back and attack it. DON'T GIVE UP! Work through it.

This also may be helpful: Change the setting. Look at it from a different character's point of view.

Good luck!

We’re all familiar with this scenario:


 


Driving home like we’re on autopilot. Red light. Stop. The grocery store, gas station, McDonald’s, dry cleaners we always pass, barely notice it. Turn onto our streets, pass the neighbors, drive into our driveways, park, get out, go inside.


 


What did we see? How much did we observe? What was missed? Most likely, a lot!
