Jane, how much time do you spend on writing and how much do you spend on promoting?

Noooo, JJ, we believe everything you say.

Of course I have a Bertha in me. I wish she'd show up more when pictures are taken...there's always that "older" lady in the way, hogging the camera.

Hannelore, you couldn't look any younger. I love your blonde hair, big eyes, and wide smile. You look great.

Jane, did you write as a kid? If so, what did you write?

I recall my friend and I writing plays. Then we'd get my sisters to act them out. Funny thing. About 5 years ago, I was cleaning out the attic (well not cleaning...just going through things)and I came across a casette tape of one of the plays. What a hoot. There was more giggling than anything else.

Dotsie, you're so sweet. But I got to tell you, that picture was taken about 5 years ago. Its amazing what transformations take place in just 5 years! Instead of updating I prefer to regress...like JJ. Maybe I'll exchange my photograph to one from my childhood...heh heh, then the baby years...and then to a 'thought'.

Hey, I miss your picture! I bet I'm speaking for everyone here. You sure don't need to be at the 'thought' stage Dotsie.

Hello again from Georgia...a pit stop on my way to Orlando...

Vicki,

I write pretty much every day but it seems to be more about promoting and marketing than doing the edits on my next book. Allison hit that on the head when she said that we take our times with the first one and then it's a mad dash to write after that.

I did get a guided journal completed and it's at the printer's as I type. It has 10 Bertha stories and exercises for journaling to increase joy...Where the Joys Are: Bertha's Guided Journal.

Seems like I'm always in front of my computer doing something, even if it's spider solitaire!

I loved to write around starting around 7th grade. I wrote sappy and sometimes gory poems...too much Edgar Allen Poe at the time...and a few short stories of the same teenage drama queen genre. I remember a few of them but don't actually have copies of them. Wish I did.

I loved writing and all of literature in high school. Mother says I wanted to take journalism in college but she encouraged (she was paying) me to go with my original choice of nursing.

As a young married mother I didn't write much, just read a lot...you know the Maribell Morgan stuff of the 80's. But I always had the desire to write for me and to encourage others.

Hannelore, I agree you are beautiful and JJ those highlights in your hair sure got you looking younger!

Oh, I'll try to check back in this afternoon and again in the morning. JJ's right, I do have a new laptop but my friends don't have internet at home...just at their cafe...I'm being forced to eat as I type...bacon, egg and cheese biscuit!

Here I am! I had to eat. Lordy I love those Cedarlane frozen dinners! Wuhooo....

Now, I have two questions.

1) How did you get into speaking and teaching classes?

2) Do you have the "next" book already started? If so, will it be along the same lines? And I'm not talking about the journal.

Waving hand!! Hello Miss Author of the Month!
Do you have a set writing schedule like Allison? I think I'd try to write in the morning. I find there is a big difference in my concentration level between morning and night...and I need all those little concentration cells to be creative.
Could you tell us if any author has influenced you, and in which way?
Thank you.
