Three Cool Blogs for Monday



1.
Mystery Writing is Murder is a new blog I stumbled across this morning. I was so taken with the first post on how oral storytelling fits into her life as a writer and as a mom that I flipped back a couple of weeks and found out that she is writing her mystery novels near my own home town - Charlotte, NC. - and get this, she was born in Anderson, SC - home of Keaslers, Elrods, Howards and Moores. Can't resist such a serendipity. For writers her blog roll is a rich resource.


2.
This time every year I itch to buy notebooks, pens and folders for school.
Travelin Oma is offering everybody that chance with her 12 week writing seminar - which started today. I have been waiting anxiously for her to post the first "class notes". I knew it would be good - and it is.
Check it out. Join the fun - and start writing. The prompts and suggestions fit for storytellers as well. We all want to tell a story. Hope to see you sitting across from me.

First Day Assignment: Write the title of a memoir you might write.

"The Sink Drains Up".
Blinded by the title, I walked blithely into being president of a small art college having little idea of what lay ahead. I expected to meet some challenges... and I did. However the day I walked into the sculpture studio and discovered that the clogged sink drained UP I realized I had jumped into the deep-end - and remembered - I can't swim.

And don't miss the way Granny Sue turns a family story into a romantic legend and then tops it with a surprise twist - family reconnections across an ocean.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! It sounds like we have a lot in common. My family is still in Anderson, although I left there once I headed off to college. Great town!
