Back to the keyboard…
Now that my children’s book, LIAM LABRADOODLE LEARNS WHOLE BODY LISTENING has launched along with my website, wholebodylistening.org, I want to thank all my readers for your encouragement, comments, and support. If you are a teacher, parent, grandparent or caregiver of young children, I invite you to stop by the website and find good listening fun and resources to share.
I’m happy to report some great news, especially for Peggy Morehouse Strack fans. Peggy will be returning to The Writers’ Loop from time to time as a contributor. She has plans lined up to attend author readings and will write reports for us. Peggy is scheduled to hear Debbie Macomber read from her latest novel, A GIRL’S GUIDE TO MOVING ON. I won’t let the proverbial cat of out the bag by revealing the other authors on Peggy’s calendar, but hint-hint, you might find an idea on the EVENTS page.
In March, I’ll be thrilled to post my interview with author Stephanie Evanovich. Her latest novel, THE TOTAL PACKAGE, will be released in mid-March. I attended Stephanie’s keynote address at the Unicorn Writers Conference last summer, and became acquainted with her sparkling sense of humor. She’s a hoot. If you enjoy laughing and steamy you-know-what, you can start now by reading her previous novels, THE SWEET SPOT and BIG GIRL PANTIES.
Plans are also underway for a continuing series of Q & A with aspiring authors. This is intended to share ideas and spread encouragement among the writing community. The hope is to stimulate discussion through questions and comments by writers and followers of the blog. All are welcome to participate as soon as we are up and running. Please leave a comment and let me know if you’re interested.
Here in the Great Northeast, our temperatures have dropped, snow has fallen, the winds are whipping up, and it’s a lovely time to curl up with a good read, or…with a journal and pen. Whether you’re looking around and seeing nothing but snow, or if you’re in a warm climate surrounded by flowers or watching graceful waves washing across a sandy beach — instead of simply snapping a photo, why not describe it in writing and express how it makes you feel? Do it for yourself. It’s very therapeutic and great for your brain.
