More must-read posts


Carrie’s memories of summers visiting her uncle are beautifully written.

Graham’s ode to John Lennon, written on Lennon’s birthday is a great read.

I only wish I lived next to churches that made signs like the one in this post.  My God, what great material!  I have to admit, I don’t read the signs posted on churches around here – maybe I’ll start now…

Don’t read this if you are easily offended, but if you like a good expletive-laced rant, go for it.  You’ll be glad you did.

Paying it forward, or should I say, receiving forward pay?

Claire Hennessey, of Crazy California Claire, named me as one of her three ‘Pay it Forward’ blogs the other day, and I’m grateful for the mention.  Claire and I connected through the Rach Writes Platform Building Campaign, and our connection has been the highlight of the entire campaign experience for me.  We have become critique partners, and I absolutely love reading and commenting on the memoir she has in progress.  It’s a very charming story and I’m excited to see where she takes it.  She’s also provided me some excellent feedback on a short memoir piece I’ve been working on for the past couple of months.  Thanks, Claire!  It’s great to have your support!  I’ll post my own version of Pay it Forward shortly, with my regular links to some great posts I’ve read in the past couple weeks.
