I love this quote posted today by +Jon Winokur.

The purpose of writing is to make your mother and father drop dead with shame.

I always look forward to reading +Paula Krapf's tweets. Today she sent this one out about epic first sentences in novels. What a great post for writers!

#authors   #writers   #amwriting   #novels   #fiction  
Some books take their time to grab a hold of your attention, their plot and characters slowly developing into something interesting and beautiful. But other books catch your eye the second you skim their first sentences, and suddenly there’s no turning back. Who can forget some of the great first

I've been going to Dolce Vita and seeing Kimberly for just over a year. She is the best hairstylist I've ever had. She understands color and knows how best to match hair color with a person's complexion and style. Kimberly is also a master at cutting and styling and initially spent quite a bit of time with me helping me to learn how to get the "salon look" when I'm at home. This is a full-service salon, a really nice feature. The aesthetician there is masterful at waxing eyebrows, which I've only been doing for a year. I really like being able to make one appointment for all my beauty-related needs. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable so even if you don't see Kimberly, you'll still have a great experience.
