Work alone, but not really alone…

Because we write alone, learning to share one’s work is a big step. Taking the risk, has big payoffs.
This was last night’s Carbondale Writer’s Group. Each one of us has a totally different writing style. One never knows who will be there. I find the encouragement, support and energy of the Carbondale Writer’s Group to be a huge blessing.20170814_200314

My Christmas Gift to You…

From the 23rd – 25th of December Dream Glasses  is being offered as a Free Kindle Book. This is my gift to you, my friends and followers. Dream Glasses is a women’s lit or young adult readers novella about a woman who finds herself and her dream.

New to the publishing world, the best way to find my book is to go Amazon, and then search in the books area for DREAM GLASSES by Linda L Flynn. This book is part of the Rosethorn Series. Once you download the book, it’s yours. I hope you’ll enjoy it. After reading it, please take the time to leave a review on Amazon.

Merry Christmas to you all. …and happy reading.

How words land on a page…

Writing, writing, writing is what writers do. Or is it? Though that sounds natural to folks who don’t know writers, most writers know how many times it is just not that simple.

One of my pastimes for the days when words don’t flow is to review writing prompts. During a light-hearted don’t want to the world to take me too seriously mood I came across the following prompt:

One Day you come into work and find a cookie mysteriously placed on your desk. Grateful to whoever left this anonymous cookie, you eat it. The next morning you come in and find another cookie. This continues for months until one Day a different object is left—and this time there’s a note.

Something about this prompt spoke to me. Words sprang into my mind fast than my fingers could put them on the page. That day a story was born. Many changes and iterations later, the story is different.
