Rose & Thorn, Joy, I was in my own Way

Hi Yawwwwl. The spring issue of Rose & Thorn Journal is now live! Take a break from your tax woes and angsts to waller in some great poetry, prose, art. Let the writers/poets/artist know what you think - let US know what you think.

While there, if you haven't signed up for the newsletter, which goes out quarterly the day we go live, please think about doing so.

Without our readers' support, we are nothing. We need you. We want you. We love you. We adore you.

Now, back to my VK III manuscript - I had a breaththrough (oh, look what I wrote on accident! breath-through instead of break-through!) and now the words and scenes and images are coming faster and faster and faster. This is the cool stage. This is what I've been waiting for. This is wonderful and exciting and how it always usually is - whatever had been stopping me from this stage has flown away--I WAS STOPPING ME FROM THIS STAGE! huhn.

my fave photo of me at conference :-D

Alaine captured Joy
Have a great weekend. I'll be back to my mountain cove at Killian Knob on Sunday Evening. If you see my BoopMobile on the road, give me a honk and wave. By Monday, I should be back to my regular schedule of MWF posting and when I can, Sunday Blogwalking visiting. But, with VK III coming so fast and furious now, I need to put most all my attention on that. *MUWAH*

PS - will post this link Monday - but Angie Ledbetter, I, and two staff members went to the conference, as you may have seen me blog about below, and Darrelyn Saloom wrote up a little bit about us, including our Rose & Thorn Journal - since Angie and I were on a panel for R&T, etc. It's a nice article on the writing life. The post is on Jane Friedman's "There are no Rules" blog for Writer's Digest Magazine (this is online).

Well, at least two of those photos are gorgeous! Hawwwwwww!

Wish all our bloggy friends could get a day or two of this scenery, breezes and serenity, don't you? Love our spring issue of R&T too.

Life is swell! xxo

Thank you for the link. I enjoyed the poem "The Fairy Tale is Over." I am reading "What We See" and noticed that my fave candy, Xanax, is spelled wrong. Hate when that happens.~ Anna

Looking forward to the new issue. Good luck with VKIII-- sounds like the launch of a new high speed racer.
