Wow! It looks like I didn't write at all in 2011.

Of course, that is not true. I did write, but I was handicapped by a bunch of physical things. Bah! Bad Body, bad! I will attempt to do better in 2012. Occasionally I will have something from my daily writing, but there might be other material here as well.
For instance, I recommend this book Seize the Story by Victoria Hanley. It is a Handbook for Teens who like to Write. Her website is Victoria Hanley . I gave this book as a Christmas present to one of my young friends.
So, it looks like I will occasionally mention books I've read. You can go to my book list to see a number of books I have liked. I no longer put number ratings on the books. I know many of these authors and they are all five star people.
I love writer quotes:
"There is no way of writing well and also of writing easily."
Anthony Trollope (24 April 1815 – 6 December 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific, and respected English novelists of the Victorian era.
More info: A.T. Overview
Trollope treated literature as a trade and wrote by the clock. No author has been more methodical. He was prolific and astute in depicting those he rubbed elbows with. I confess I have never read a whole book by A.T., but I have seen the BBC works based on his writing.

Here's to a new year! I pray for productivity in 2012. Good health to you and wise decisions.


  1. I look forward to more posts from you, Mrs. Paul!
    Thank you so much for your writing tips - they pinpoint the little things that add up to make awkward compositions.

    May I ask if you will be writing more books set in Kale and Tippers' world? I'm quite sad that it is over for now... I've been following you for years!

    Also, thank you for being a Christian outreach in so many ways. I know you've made an impact! God bless!

  2. It is good to see you back at your blog. Sorry to hear the health issue were troubling you last year. What is the next writing project I can look for from you? Is Tipper and the dragons still galavanting around the country?

  3. I won't be writing about the world of Amara any time soon. I have several projects I'm working on. The latest book we have out is Taming the Wild Wind, an e-book telling the story of a missionary in the 1840s. No dragons. It is more of a prairie romance than a fantasy. Although, there are two "ghosts" and a "troll."

  4.
