Topic Solstice Story Competition

"I'm looking forward to entering the contest. I really want to know what I'll write for it. Unfortunately, I've not come up with the perfect theme or story line. But it'll come. Thanks all admins and mods for giving us a chance to strut our stuff."

Love this comment. There are many different writers in the world, and their actions and reactions to story prompts vary as much. I enjoyed the honesty here. This writer will wait for that magic moment, when they feel that their Muse has joined them. I think it is important too, to wait until inspiration joins me before I begin to add my two cents worth of a story. Cheers!

Topic My Daughter and I (Her mostly)
Posted 15 Jul 2012 21:14

Well, where to begin! Lot's happening. My book, "Death & Taxes" is out on Amazon and now Amazon Europe.computer Two nights ago I sent a friend a poem since I was very moved by the death of her son and the strange circumstances surrounding his murder in New York City. She was visibly moved by my writing, and decided to share it with a good friend of hers last night, Diane Sawyer. Yes, THE Diane Sawyer! It was passed around the newsroom and others were moved by it too. Diane called it raw and clean poetry and suggested strongly that she should put my poem on the back of her book. I was thrilled of course.

The other news at the same time was my daughter's recital was placed on Youtube. Now you can view it too - right here, and I'd be so happy if you would leave comments on both songs - your call. Cheers, Don (Proud Dad)
I thought you might like to hear my daughter at her first Recital. Please comment if you would like to. Note she has no microphone. Cheers and Blessings Don (Proud Dad)hello1 hello1 hello1 hello1 hello1
