Jenna, I knnow how you are--you'll be hot photographer. You are very critical on self and this is what is most important to gain control over a camera. If I can do it, yo can do it better.

Jenna, can you help me a second? I've a script to read and write a synopsis in 24 hours. Can you recommend some freeware script-writing tool. I don't know the exact format but they sent me example. we seem to be exchanging places temporarily, but if someone offers me work to do this, I will do it.

Drat. Bringing my dear daughter to Disney for the first time, and the only thing she asked for was to be on the pirate crew... but they're booked both days we'll be there. Yep, other girls want to be Cinderella... she wants a scar and an eye patch.

Here's something I don't get. Writers often talk about their target word counts, which are usually about 1500-2000 words per day. Now, if people actually DID keep to those targets, we could all write an entire book in a month, two tops. So why don't we?

I think it's mostly because we are at the mercy of our "muse" - which in most cases can be extremely temperamental and somewhat psychotic! :)

Introduction
Jenna Glatzer is the author of 19 books (and counting).

Her main writing interests are biographies and memoirs, and she often writes about health, disabilities, and parenting. She also loves writing for children, as well as writing humor essays and personal essays.

She's written three books for writers: Outwitting Writer’s Block and Other Problems of the Pen (The Lyons Press), Make a Real Living as a Freelance Writer (Nomad Press), and The Street-Smart Writer (Nomad Press).

She's also worked on two books for people with anxiety disorders: Fear Is No Longer My Reality (McGraw-Hill) is a book she co-wrote with Jamie Blyth of The Bachelorette, telling his tale about overcoming panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. Conquering Panic and Anxiety Disorders (Hunter House) is an anthology of success stories from people who've overcome all sorts of anxiety disorders.

Her latest children's picture book is Hattie, Get a Haircut! (Moo Press), a whimsical rhyming story about a girl who refuses to get her hair cut.

She also worked with Celine Dion on the authorized biography Celine Dion: For Keeps (Andrews McMeel), which was one of Jenna's favorite life experiences.

She co-authored the books Fertility Foods (Simon & Schuster) with Jeremy Groll, M.D. and Lorie Groll, and Bullyproof Your Child's Life (Penguin) with Joel Haber, Ph.D. 

Unbroken (Thomas Nelson) is a Christian memoir about overcoming abuse and addiction, written with Tracy Elliott.

Then came The Marilyn Monroe Treasures (Barnes & Noble), in the same format as the Celine Dion book-- oversized hardcover filled with removable memorabilia. It's a strong seller at Barnes & Noble.

Then there's Unthinkable (Tyndale House), written with Scott Rigsby, the first double-amputee to finish the Hawaiian Ironman. Visit www.scottrigsby.com for details.
 
Most recently, there's the true crime memoir My Stolen Son with Susan Markowitz (Berkley/Penguin). Susan's son Nick Markowitz was murdered in 2000 at the orders of drug dealer Jesse James Hollywood. This story was the basis of the movie Alpha Dog. Visit www.nicholasmarkowitz.com for updates on that project.
 
She's currently working on five-- count 'em, five-- book projects. The next to be released will be The Pregnancy Test with Gaby Rodriguez, the teen who faked her own pregnancy as a senior project. Simon & Schuster will release it in early 2012 (projected for January).
 
Because Jenna is a ghostwriter, not all of her work carries her byline, and she can't always talk about what she's worked on. So if you read a book you really like, you can always pretend she wrote it. She'll like that. If it's a bad book, no way did she write it. Ptooey, and other disdainful noises.

Jenna was a contributing editor at Writer's Digest and has written hundreds of magazine articles. She has also written hundreds of greeting cards and copy for mugs, bumper stickers, doormats, aprons, t-shirts, buttons, magnets, and plaques for companies such as Gallant Greetings, Paradise Greetings, Ephemera, High Cotton, and Northern Cards.

An experienced speaker, Jenna is a frequent media guest. She was the honorary chairperson of the national I Love to Write Day and a writing workshop instructor for the Omega Institute. She also served as a judge of the Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards.

She is still mourning the loss of Angel, the brilliant Joss Whedon TV series that spun off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  She is convinced that when she gets rich enough, she's going to single-handedly resurrect the series, even if that doesn't happen until all of the principal actors are in their 80s.

Her home is in New York with her her fabulous little girl (Sarina), and her kitty (Kira).

My experience with them has been a nightmare start to finish. They sent an inexperienced new inspector, didn't catch major issues ranging from termites to plumbing and electrical problems, roof leaks, etc., then didn't live up to their warranty and totally blew me off. I've had more than $20k of unexpected expenses as a result of their faulty inspection, and I wish I could go back and hire someone else so I would have known... and not bought this house!

Juan came to my house to measure and check out my layout, and he made suggestions. I got three other estimates, but Creative Stone and Cabinets came in the lowest, plus I felt good about them and the cabinets I picked (Mid-Continent). It was a good choice. The cabinets are very nice, and the installers were fantastic. They spent two very full days getting everything right-- measuring and remeasuring, leveling, making sure everything looked right and felt solid. The single complaint I have is that we had a miscommunication regarding a couple of things that were supposed to be included. I don't think it was a matter of dishonesty, but either a language miscommunication or he just forgot something he had offered. Either way, they did live up to their promises in the end, but I should have insisted on getting everything in writing the first day I got the quote. A contractor who looked at the work said that the cabinets are good quality and the installers did a "top notch" job, going above and beyond what installers normally would.

Natasha is an amazing photographer and a caring person. She took my all-time-favorite photos of my daughter, which I'll always cherish. I love seeing the new sessions she posts!
