Z is for: Zowie!
Celebrating the final letter of the A to Z. Wasn't positive I'd reach the end but so happy I stuck it out. What the Challenge has done for me: I've returned to writing as a daily activity. I met some wonderful, inspiring writers. I've fallen back in love wi...

Y is for: Young at Heart
I suppose I often don't act my age. I choose to dress the way I feel comfortable, like what I like, and still value and enjoy a view of the world through childlike eyes. The body ages, eventually to cross life's finish line, but not the soul. I will continu...

X is for: Xrays and Pat-downs
Airports are exhilarating and intrusive at once. We know that 9-11 changed the way we all travel forever. While I`m glad to know that national security is more of a priority and that many of the right people are paying attention now, I still feel violated s...

V is for: Vulpine
Merriam-Webster defines VULPINE as: of, relating to, or resembling a fox. The Flip Dictionary says similar words for VULPINE: clever, crafty, cunning, foxy, ingenious, shrewdness, skillful, sly, tricky, wily. There. I just thought you should know.

U is for: Under Writer
Hi. My name is Maggie, and I`m an under writer. Not to say I work in insurance, but that I use my words too sparingly. When most writers get done with a draft, they need to cut much of their words to lower the count. I have to come up with chunks of content...

T is for: Thick skin, tender heart
Writers must realize that rejections galore from agents and editors are only business, not a personal kind of thing. We grow thick skin, impervious to the sting of the form rejection. Mighty, tough. Also, we write words sweet enough to bring a tear to Satan...

S is for: Sister Time
I'm very fortunate to have sisters that are also my friends. We're six different women, in a variety of sizes, shapes, and view points, aged 53 to 66. I don't get to see them all at once very often, but treasure my time with any of them. Here we are at my n...

R is for: Retirement
I retired from decades of nursing three years ago next month. No regrets, only an occasional twinge of missing my friends or a memory of babies in the NICU. I could live without the work dreams, though, often frantic and confusing, that make me glad to wake...

Q if for: Quandary
To go with independent publishing, pray tell, to release my precious words from their drawer prison and into the world lest they perish, unread, unloved? A quandary of biblical proportions, I say. Does my traditional-publication-only mindset put me in a con...
