I was telling the ladies in my writers group that I had a blog,
So I thought I better write something in hopes they will look for it.
.My friend, Leah Solo Taylor, what a cool name, right? She wanted to start a High Desert Writers Group .
I'm wondering if you have ever experienced enthusiasm and inspiration for a project that never really got off the ground, ?? Hmm, Is it just me or can you relate?
Good News is... THE HIGH DESERT WRITERS GROUP is off the ground and flying!
There are amazing women in our group. I have learned so much each time we gather. There is always ample refreshments. Love that! and a real authenticity that I am enjoying very much.
I am writing and being critiqued .. and rewriting.. and loving it.
One of our members, Elayne is writing a screen play from an actual dream she had. I can't wait to see how this unfolds. Amazing writing Elayne. I am looking forward to learning every thing I can from you.
Shari is our Comedy Girl, she is currently working on a project that is Hilarious and So Funny.
This is going to be a big hit.
Our Host, Miss Leah has read us portions of her many stories. They are eccentric and very well written. It always leaves me wanting more! Good lesson..
Melinda is working on her life stories as am I. This is where I think most people can start.
Everyone has a story.
Keeping a journal over the years has helped me keep track of the crazy events in my life.
I had NO idea how to write a cohesive story before I joined the Writers Group.
If you want more information about our Writers Group.. Please contact me

from Mary Oliver
"Tell me what you will do with your precious life"
I shall live each moment as if it were my last...
Thrive in the present, Never in the past.
This precious life I will not waste, although trials will come.. Life I will taste
Taste of the joys and the sweetness of the air
Every chance I get I will tarry there
This is my hope...This is my dream...
But Life , you see ...it's not what it seems..
There will be troubles and disappointment galore
But It's really How YOU LOOK at it and nothing more
This life of mine, I will daily confess
That I will tackle IT
From the place of Yes!!!
