“Artists are people who are not at all interested in the facts—only in the truth. You get the facts from outside. The truth you get from inside.” --Ursula K. LeGuin

Tell Me Your Story

Quotes from people smarter than me.

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant."--Robert Louis Stevenson

"Write while the heat is on. the writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses and iron which has cooled to inflame the minds of his audience."--Henry David Thoreau

And here from Isaac Asimov, "If a doctor told me I had only six-minutes to live, I wouldn't brood, I'd type faster."

You are probably here because you're a writer or blogger, or at least want to know about such things. 

Me too.

I'm not a big whoopie do blogger, darn, but I'm trying. 

I was limping along on my WordPress site https://travelswith jo.com when I decided to write a post on Vision Training and suddenly I got over 800 positive comments.  It's strange how it works, sometimes you know know what will strike a reader's fancy.

As a blogger, you hear that you should use story, and it ought to be the readers story--except you don't know what that is, so you write from your own experience, and sometimes it clicks. I suppose by that you learn the reader's story.

I have, after many years of trying, gotten a book published by Regal Publishing House.Yea! I love that publisher/editor. And happy that she took a chance on me. 

The book is on B & N and Amazon.com. I have a site https://thefrogssong.com, but I am verboten to sell books unless I am physically present, so no pushing to buy there, but some additional stories about life on the Island. Guess I ought to call it The Rest of The Story.

I would be happy if you would give https://thefrogssong.com a look-see, maybe you'll decide that you just MUST HAVE the boo, the Frog's Song. 

Love you guys,
Be brave, be strong and keep writing.
