A Name A Day: Lynn

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.  

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!

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.

What is this? A normal blog post? Boring!

Hahaha, just kidding. I have been doing as many of the writing challenges as I can find so my blogfeed is inundated with poems and pictures, hashtags and other notes.

I was going through wordpress today and I saw a photograph that just moved me. It was taken in the woods, of a sort of stonewall fallen over. It was on a blog, by a blogger calling her blog “oneletterup”, and it was in response to a photo challenge. I had responded that I love thinking about finding hidden places, sort of like something you would find wandering through the woods, maybe an abandoned fireplace from a long-ago burnt down house. Anyhow, it moved me to take Brody (my dog) out for a walk in the woods. I thought it would be the perfect time to look for interesting things to photograph, mushrooms, weird plants, etc. The walk was nice. We were out in the woods behind our house so we weren’t far but it was still far enough that you had to really look to see the house. So, why am I going on about a silly walk in the woods? Because Brody came back covered in ticks! I am not kidding. I checked him in the driveway and pulled off about four. Then on the deck, three more. I decided I should brush him before letting him in the house and I found about three more! Then, I did another check with my hands and yet one more. How many is that? Ten? Eleven? I was super disappointed because I was thinking it would be nice to do this on the sunny, warm days before winter comes. Not happening until the weather gets so cold they hibernate or die or whatever a tick does in the winter!

On another note, I had a phone conversation with author/literary-agent/author-coach, Mark Malatesta. It was part of one of his preliminary coaching sessions, the first of many I would love to take part in! He went over many of my books that I have written and the query letter I would like to send out to find a literary agent. He was so nice and super helpful and now, besides having tons of homework, I am so motivated to get my works published with a big publisher. I don’t know how many people who blog on here have work published, it doesn’t really matter, except that if anyone is into writing childrens’ picture books I would love to collaborate with other writers. I guess it doesn’t have to be just writers of childrens books, it just makes it more relatable. Long story short, if I get an agent and get a book deal I am working with Mark Malatesta again!

Peace to you! Have a pleasant, restful night!
