8:50 a.m. — San Antonio
listening to Streets of Laredo sung by Marty Robbins
Hello, all. Here we go with Thursday back in play.
1] One of my favourite sites is Grammarly. Not only do they understand the Oxford comma, but they have many well-written articles on a variety of topics. The one I am linking to is: 10 Ways Keeping a Journal Will Genuinely Improve Your Life. I don’t keep one, never have, except for one three month period of a particularly exciting vacation, when I was twelve. However, I know many of you do, or might be considering it. The article is brief and to the point, easily consumed.
2] This next item came to my attention through Barbara Crary. I find it fascinating, but am not surprised, when I consider poetry’s power. You will need five minute to watch the video, Poetry as Therapy for Alzheimer ‘s Patients.
3] The final item is a call for submissions from women over fifty, by Two Sylvias Press. Kelli Russell Agodon and Annette Spaulding-Convy have announced the 2015 Two Sylvias Press Wilder Series Book Prize: A Poetry Contest for Women Over Age 50. Check it out.
Short and sweet. There’s this room I’ve been ignoring. As it’s where my regular computer will be, I need to clear it. I will see you Tuesday for one of my prompts and Thursday for more serendipity. I haven’t given up on Fridays, but will wait until my PC is up and running.
Happy writing, everyone.
