Seasons Come Seasons Go

Fall enters as a breeze chills the air,
Bright colored leaves give trees a glorious flair!
Mums in shades of yellow and red,
Birds in flocks flying overhead.
Caramel apples such a delicious treat!
Enjoying the breeze from my porch seat.
Bright orange pumpkins being sold at stores,
To be bought, carved, and placed beside doors.
Apples growing on trees, used in pies,
The return of fall is a feast for the eyes!

The Final Penstroke: Favorite Fall Things!

The Final Penstroke: Favorite Fall Things!

Favorite Fall Things!

Fall is my favorite season without a doubt!  The leaves on the trees turn various shades of yellow, red, and orange.  The bright yellow school buses can be seen (and heard) throughout the neighborhood as children head back for another year of school.  Finally one of my favorite fall things? Gooey caramel apples covered with peanuts! There are many wonderful things to celebrate about fall.  What is your favorite thing about fall?

Writers Unite!

How many established or budding writers are out there on a daily basis trying to be noticed by potential clients?  This summer I packed up my teaching supplies after many years in the educational system in order to create my own writing company, thus following my lifelong passion. But the process behind creating a company was a lot more than I imagined!  Obtaining EIN numbers, business bank accounts, business PayPal accounts, I wondered when I could actually start writing! Finally, when I could start to create, I found myself having to prove myself through writing proposals and taking tests for websites.  I just want to write! I started this company to share my talent with the world, but I have a hard time wading through the initial steps required to start the writing company in order to write.  Then there were employers who looked at your writing, praised it, then were never heard from again! This was disheartening.  How do writers gain needed exposure when they can barely get a foot in the door?  How do you, fellow writers, deal with the issues of employers not getting back, or losing an assignment to one rated lower than you?  I am very happy to be free from the daily grind, and I feel much more positive now especially when I write about a topic that excites me! But I would love to know how fellow writers/bloggers deal with starting out in the world of writing!

Doing Things My Way!

As a new school year begins, I find myself having all the typical beginning of  the year dreams every teacher has each year. Do I have my supplies? What will this year's crop of students be like? And so on.  But wait this year is different!  I'm not going back to teaching!  I am following my dream of becoming a writer! So why the constant dreams? Perhaps my mind has been preprogrammed all this years to these same concerns.  But no more! I've thrown caution to the wind and listened to my heart. For once, I'm doing things my way and not looking back!  I am the master of my domain, I'm the boss of me! Am I sad to leave all those years of teaching behind? Certainly! But I am excited about my prospects for the future as well.  After a summer of grief and pain, I needed to do this for me to find happiness in the world once more!  It is a scary place starting from square one again, but I longed to do something for me. Something that would make me want to get up in the morning, that would cause me to feel alive! Has anyone ever felt the need to reinvent their lives like this? For me this is a type of metamorphosis.  A was the lowly caterpillar yearning to get its wings and become a beautiful butterfly!  Now I have found my wings, and completed my transformation!  The world is waiting!  How have you turned into a butterfly of transformation by doing things your way?
