Very different from common assumption!

@nytimes It turns out that at heart we are all Pollyannas http://nyti.ms/1Dkvow5
An algorithm used to analyze millions of articles and books, and billions of tweets, determined that we are naturally upbeat, at least in how we express ourselves.

what do you learn from your suffering?
 
John Keats died of tuberculosis on this day in 1821. Read this piece from our archive on how the poet coped with fever.
That dragon was a cruel critic who had mocked Keats's literary ambitions—John Gibson Lockhart, who, writing under the pseudonym Z, had scolded Keats as if he were a child, insisting in a review of Endymion that “it is a better and a wiser thing to be a starved apothecary than a starved poet; ...

Strong Verbs
As I slowly edit my latest manuscript, I find that I'm in the habit of utilizing adverbs and weak verbs...a lot. While I believe adverbs have their place in writing, I have to remind myself that I should search for strong verbs as a replacement....

Work
Occupation
Kathy Bryson knew she wanted to be a writer when she finished reading through her school and local children's libraries. She spent 20 years honing her writing skills on marketing brochures, websites, and several unfinished manuscripts before going into teaching and finishing a book with all the stuff she enjoys most - from coffee to love to Shakespeare! Kathy lives in Florida where she caters to the whims of two spoiled cats and wonders what possessed her to put in 75 feet of flower beds.
Story
Tagline
Award-winning writer of romantic fantasy with a satiric twist! Also writing instructor, student newspaper adviser, and general feline factotum.
Introduction
Shakespeare may have brought a long-standing feud to light in 1590-something with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but it’s heating up in the modern-day Midwest!

In Feeling Lucky, Megan O’Malley pinches a cute guy's bum and catches a leprechaun. Turns out they're not that short though they are bad about sharing. Still Megan needs that money - no matter how tricky or cute the man!

In Restless Spirits, Marilee Harper agrees to renovate a B&B breakfast where fixtures turn themselves off and on, and old baseballs fly without help. But these aren’t the worst of her worries. She’s also falling hard for her boss who’s then kidnapped by fairies!
