Tuesday Stuff

Chiseled in Rock

The post over at the Rock today is mostly for folks who'll be attending the Colorado Gold Writer's Conference this weekend. There are ways to follow the action on Twitter and Facebook, so I'm helping spread the word.


Five Smarter Habits of Great Writers

This post over at write to done: unmissable articles on writing is definitely worth your time.


Thursday's Guest

My guest blogger this week is mystery writer Denise M. Hartman, author of Killed in Kruger. I hope you'll join us to see what Denise says about travel as a means to perk up the imagination.


Tuesday's Question

Do you keep a journal? If yes, what is the journal's purpose?

Lynn Proctor said...

no i don't keep one, but i wish i had of done this--for one thing, daughter would have loved reading it later :)

Alex, you wouldn't have time to keep a journal even if you wanted one. :D

Lynn, I wish I had done so as well. There are many personal memories and historical events I don't recall with accuracy, so it would have been more for me than for my kids.

I kept one in my early teens, and burnt it as a grand gesture when I was about 16. Wish I hadn't! But my poetry is a kind of journal, and I wrote one on my return trip to the land of my birth - Australia.

Hi Lizy -- Poetry sounds like a great way to journal, especially about our travels. I did keep a notebook during my trip to Norway, but it's more like a stop-by-stop record without any thoughtful impressions.
