Yes, thank you Lou, this is what I do in the Scrapbook collections I create,

I use Family, Friend, Landscape art & pictures along with the story to create my pages...

I created my Family History Album and gave my 2 Adult Children an album of their Family history one year for Christmas.

I love Genealogy and have Researched my family roots back to the 1500's...This Family Line is an ongoing project....

A writer writes.

Perhaps begin by writing a collection of stories of what you remember of your childhood, family trips, dinner times together, school, relatives, etc., maybe adding pictures you have.

Not really. I would love to learn more about it. I love doing blogs. My grandmother was a poet.

Lifestyle would be good for a Sparkpeople member. I, however, would never be able to write a book.

I will keep in mind the short story contests.

Thank you IUHRYTR.

Thank you for all the powerful information you provided here! Currently I'm a divinity student and love writing on theological topics! My writing has improved through the years especially upon completion of my degree in "Biblical Studies; however I'm always looking for ways to improve. I've learned the way we write normally gives us signs on how a person speaks and for myself this was challenging; however I have greatly improved in this area and I'm indeed very proud of myself. emoticon emoticon

If we call ourselves writers, then we write, when we can, for however long we can, where we can, on any topic we can.

We think about the writing process, we talk about writing and the business of writing, we seek those of like minds and we gather to share ideas, to inspire, to encourage, to motivate each other.

We make NO EXCUSES!

In my opinion,

May I get a emoticon ?

In the Orlando Sentinel newspaper an article on diabetes had this sentence about a man with the disease:

"Ensign, of St. Joseph, Mo., began by educating himself about diabetes, which makes him two to four times more likely to develop heart disease."

Sounds to me that his odds of having heart problems would be less if he hadn't educated himself about diabetes. emoticon

More proofreading humor:

In "Moving Target" by J.A. Jance, a patient's mother, named Phyllis, is introduced to a man who holds a ball cap in one hand "while offering Ali the other one." Huh?

In the same book, regarding a house fire, she writes, "The fire trucks were putting out hot spots..." Maybe the firefighters were but I'm sure the trucks weren't.
*******
In "The Dead Will Tell" by Linda Castillo, three friends meet in a restaurant where one, Snipe, orders whiskey to drink. She writes, " Snipe reached for his (drink, whiskey) and downed it in two gulps. Three pages later, without getting refills, "... Snipe finished his whiskey..." Huh again.

Later, the main character places an ankle monitor on a prisoner and it is written "I roll down the pants leg" (that she had rolled up to place the monitor). A few paragraphs later, about the prisoner she writes, "... he bends down to roll down his pants..." Hmm, so who rolled them back up in the meantime?

*******
It continues to amaze me that their editorial teams get such high praise yet allow mistakes such as these to pass by them.

“Writing is a discipline. You have to commit to it daily. It’s like exercise,
there are some days you don’t want to do it, and then other
days you are excited about it -- but if you will write a page per day
you will complete a pretty nice size book in less than a year.”

Someone was careless:

In "Deserves to Die" by Lisa Jackson, page 147, a character thinks to herself that she is a "damn good corporate attorney" but on page 201 a detective describes her as "...a consultant. An engineer. Worked with road crews."

So, was she an attorney or an engineer? Guess we'll never know.

"Under the weather" is to be unwell. In the old days, when a sailor was unwell, he was sent down below to help his recovery, under the deck, and away from the weather.

More proofreading humor. It continues to frustrate me that so many errors are made in so many books today, and the authors praise their editors. Here are more examples:

One latest read was "The Bone Seeker" by M.J. McGrath.

* ...and rested her hand on her hips. (So, one hand rests on both hips?)

* ...sat by himself on an old La-Z-Boy staring at an NFL game between the Maple Leafs and the Jets.

(NFL = National Football League. The Toronto Maple Leafs are a hockey team in the NHL = National Hockey League. The NY Jets are a football team.)

* She sat on the floor and bedded in. (Say what? What does that mean?)

* The questions she wanted answering were... (Instead of answered.)

* ...sparked up the engine.
* ...keyed the engine.
* ...keyed on the engine

(Instead of being cute so often with the engine terms -- about a dozen of these) it would have been much less distracting if she cut these out and didn't feel a need to explain everytime an engine was started.)

* Pulled a face

(Huh? A common usage among popular mystery writers today instead of made a face or grimaced or had a look of doubt, etc., on someone's face but what does it mean to 'pull' a face?)

Q: Where do we get the phrase, "Look before you leap?"

A: This phrase alludes to Aesop's fable about the fox who is unable to climb out of a well. He convinces a goat to jump in, climbs on the goat's horns to get out, while the goat remains trapped. Today it means "Think before you act."

Q: Where does the phrase: "Everything but the kitchen sink" come from?

A: From 1944 WWII in armed forces slang, referenced intense bombardment. Out for blood, our Navy threw everything but the kitchen sink at Japanese vessels, warships and transports alike.

Writers check what they write for spelling, punctuation, and proper grammar. Do this every time you post here, on Facebook, or elsewhere.

ALWAYS have a knowledgable person read your manuscript BEFORE sending it to an editor to check for proper punctuation, spelling, etc. Doing so will allow the editor to focus on the bigger picture -- consistency, character believability, plot, etc. -- Lou

Thanks for the info. I used to do a lot of writing, but I don't any more and don't know if I will start again.
