Friday Fragments/The weekend version…

Friday Fragments… Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, and other small gems (hint: a notebook is helpful) and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Leave me a link so I can read your fragments!

We are having the best February weather here in Philadelphia. Last Sunday we took a ride down the shore with 3 of our grandkids. It was 70 degrees! A lot of people had the same idea, the beach and the boardwalk were both SO crowded. Our favorite pizza place on the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk is Manco & Manco’s at 9th Street. That location is moving into a larger space onto the corner of 9th and the boardwalk. The old location was closed. Their other location had a line 2-hours- long, IN FEBRUARY!

 

I can’t shake the feeling that there is a blizzard in our future. March blizzards do happen here, that old ‘in like a lion thing’…

Writing Wednesday The Proposal

Proposal Writing

I was always more a sit down and write kind of writer until I started writing books and taking on freelance work. I found myself procrastinating and easily distracted by new and shinier things that came across my laptop screen.

If I wanted to do this book writing thing full time I needed to get organized and get writing.

I now start with an outline for whatever I may be writing. A blog post, article, a book or a ghostwriting project all start with an outline.

Imagine That…#MondayMotivation

Imagine That…

Imagine that we American women united so no person or organization could control us by dividing us. Imagine that we actually did something other than persist. Imagine us coming together to solve problems. Imagine we built a bridge on what we have in common and our differences washed away under that bridge. Imagine that…

Imagine that on the topic of:

Schools- We agree we want the very best educational system for our children. We agree that every child has the right to an education regardless of race, religion, sex or disabilities. Imagine that we got together in our small towns and our cities and created a plan, we could make our school boards, administrators and educators accountable for every cent

Friday Fragments and the Funniest Thing…

FRIDAY FRAGMENTS

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

~~~

We haven’t had a good binge watch in awhile so last Sunday we started The Americans. We finished watching season 1 on Sunday and season 2 on Monday. John and I are enjoying the 80’s cars, clothes and music. I go back and forth between wanting to scrutinize my neighbors more and completely ignoring them. I am grateful I am not an FBI or a CIA agent and especially grateful I’m not a spy. Too much stress! There are 4 seasons available now and season 5 starts in March. It’s a good series and if you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend it.

My new Facebook business page resulted in some new clients. I would love it if you could give the page a look, a like and maybe a share.

Music Monday Meet Erin McAndrew/Skeleton of Life

MUSIC MONDAY

So many of the happiest memories I have are filled with music. It’s like the sound is woven through them, holding them together. Most of my saddest memories have music attached too. I married a DJ so he has a story for every song he hears too!

Because music is so important to me, such a part of my life I’ve wanted to join in on Music Monday posts for the longest time.

My Music Monday posts will include interviews and music from new and veteran artists from all genres of music as well as the music that has meant the most to me throughout my life.

This week I want to introduce you to another newcomer, Erin McAndrew. She has a beautiful voice, grew up a few towns over and with her college band she played CBGB’s, a place that held special memories of my brother for me. I was sad to see it go. David and his Plug Ugly band- mates played there shortly before he was murdered.

What is a writing coach and do you need one?

A writing coach is a professional writer that you hire to guide you through either the writing, publishing or marketing of a book or to guide you through the entire project. A writing coach can also assist with blogging, essay writing, speech writing and content writing.
