A Name A Day: Daniel

Feel free to participate in A Name A Day. Write a story, poem, or something about a real individual you know with the name of the day. If you have a name that you would like for the blog please send me a message. Please keep it all positive.  

This is part of my positivity plan. Allowing others to see their names in print and then stories or poems that are positive about them is reinforcing to adults and children. This is my first time hosting a “challenge” so if you have pointers or need to tell me how to do something differently, please do, I don’t take offense to creative feedback.  

Enjoy this! I will post a few random names until people choose to participate and give some names. I will continue as long as people would like to participate. I believe it will be nice for any blogger to share with a friend or family member poems “about them” from so many talented writers. Enjoy! 

Album Cover Design

I was so excited today when I got the final feedback on the final copy of an album cover I designed for a musician friend, and very old friend, of mine. When the album is officially on the market after its release I will probably post pictures of the design. I’d love to share it now but I have to wait.

I also finally found a program that I can use in conjunction with a few other websites to complete my picture book illustrations! Want to see the main character? I won’t tell her name or what the story is about but here is a sneak peak. I will be sending it out with queries after the new year. I am hoping this is my absolutely, real breakout book!

From my desk: November 30, 2019

Well, today is it, the last day of November, at least I think it is! Funny, but to this day I cannot remember which months have 30 days or 31. I know February!!! And I do know there are rhymes to remember, I have taught them multiple times to multiple grade levels over the course of my teaching career. But for the life of me, I cannot remember!

Yesterday was a busy day. David and I went to a movie. We saw Ford vs. Ferrari. Once I knew what was going on it was pretty good. We then went and got a drink and a bite to eat. I didn’t get a chance to write though.

Today was another busy day. It wouldn’t have been too bad but it was one of those “sleep until noon” kind of chilly days. We then went to dinner with friends and again, not much writing was done. I look and I see all the challenges I love and I am missing them! 😦 I am much too tired now to continue my night-time reading, the jolt of my relaxing muscles keep waking me up, reminding me I should go to bed.

Good night for tonight! Peace to you all. Sweet dreams sent your way.
