“It is the allure of an ordinary life that captures attention.”

 Goal– to write fiction, moments and memories from life that may inspire and shape the stories  

Challenge– to write well, to tell a story ~  to uphold a high standard of “truth” and beauty, balancing the writings with grace and compassion for the characters and the events

– to master the art of the short story, to capture the “moments” of truth.

In Progress~  taken writing course/s @ university 2012/13 – attending sponsored workshops, Writer’s Events – member of two writer’s circles for education, mentoring support and critique review – published a short story~ “The Lady’s Coat“- writersite.org

      As an aspiring writer, it works like this, a story seed will pop into my head compelling me to write.  Putting the “pen to paper,” in my case, “the fingers to the keyboard,” allows me to share these stories with you, the reader. Most of the stories on the blog are little works in progress~ drafts, story seeds; the names and settings changed, fictionalized stories from life.

      I started blogging to practice writing.  Along the way, I connected with others, talented writers, thinkers, friends and artists.  I admire your work and talents and hold myself to a high standard of excellence.

     Through study, reflection, and the writing process, I come to understand or appreciate the meaning behind the event or the “truth” to share. I write from life, however, I hope that the stories extend beyond myself, are entertaining, enlightening, leaving the reader to find their own truth.

     Why read my stories? It is the allure of an ordinary life that captures attention. We are more alike than different and a compassionate story can do more good than harm.

     This is what I know. I am grateful for my life experiences; they have made me who I am. The joy and the scratches, dents, and bruises to the  heart have added layers of compassion and awareness, leaving a quiet, calm strength, and a braver voice.

     These stories are the gifts that the universe handed me.  Unwrap them and smile.

  1. Here’s a quote for your site, “It is the allure of an ordinary life that captures attention.”
    You are a writer I love to read. How is memoir going?
    I suppose I will find out as I hop around your pink world:>)
    (My new great niece is Lily Grace…Grace has always been a fave name…trying to dig up a story I wrote years ago about an old woman, Grace, remembering her experiences with Fairies and other wondrous friends.)
    I do go on, don’t I?
    Patti

    • Grace and fairies? I would love to read that story! This “Grace” used to spend so many hours building houses, furniture, and traps to catch them in! LOL! Lily Grace could be a character in your story (that you must find). Thanks for the comment, Patt!
      PS~ I enjoy reading your blog as well!
      Best,
      Lynne/Grace

      • Silly, it is yours!!!!!! from your about me page, I believe.
        So what name do I call you?
        Patti

  2. I’ve only just read this moments AFTER my response to your “Tea with Alice” blog post. You are definitely onto a universal and compelling theme. Best of luck, Alice S.

    • Thank you for the comment. Your site is truly lovely and it fondly evokes beautiful memories.
