Fuel to Stoke the Fire

Celebrating November as Life-Writing Month, and Story Circle Network … a place for women with stories to tell.

It ain’t easy being a writer. Name a stumbling block and every writer eventually encounters it. No matter how supportive our families, how great our friends, how detailed our long-range plan for success, some times we need to crawl out of our own lives and hear the music of the world turning.

Susan Wittig Albert recognized that in 1997, when she founded Story Circle Network. Yes, she’s the same S.W.A. who writes three wonderful mystery series—China Bayles, Robin Paige Victorian mysteries, and Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter. Story Circle Network is one of her many other hats.

SCN started small, with a story circle in Austin, Texas. A group of women got together to explore writing about their real lives. Pretty soon, even the state of Texas wasn’t big enough for them.

This weekend, rather than try to list how the Story Circle Network has grown in the past eleven years, we’re sending you into the Network itself. If you’re interested in writing about your own life, or you have a relative you want to encourage to write about her life, or you’d like to read about other women’s lives, or you’re looking for new books to read, or maybe for neat holiday gifts for writer friends, you’ll find it all at the SCN.

Interested in writing about your life? Want to read about other women’s lives? Want to learn more about writing from real life? How about a great gift for a writer? This address http://www.storycircle.org/index.html takes you to the index for the Story Circle Network site. Scroll down the menu bar at the left of the screen, or use the other addresses below to go to some of the more popular features that SCN offers.

Connect to a terrific blog about life writing. http://www.storycircle.typepad.com/





Find a treasure house of quotes by women, about women, life, and writing. http://www.storycircle.org/quotes/


Do you know a woman over 65, who has a life story to tell? Go to http://www.storycircle.org/owlcircle/ to find out how Story Circle can help her tell that story.

Looking for a good book? Try http://www.storycirclebookreviews.org/ Their book review section includes mysteries, and they are always looking for new reviewers for both fiction and non-fiction.

Celebrate our lives a women and as writers. Write, read, quote, give one another gifts.

Writing quote for the week:

You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.
~Sarah Ban Breathnach, author

Terrific post! I sent link to this to an older female relative of mine. I'm hoping she will take the inspiration to write her amazing life story...

Sharon Wildwind said...

Good going, Kathryn. If she's on your holiday gift list, you could give her a membership in SCN.

Nialdlye shook out her hand as though it would help the creeping sensation to fade. With one last pat on Erikins arm, she left them to climb the staircase alone. Why worry him? But she knew firsthand that knowing and seeing it happen were two very different things. Let it go for now, he soothed. When theyd arrived, the rock before her had been solid and smooth. Startled from her thoughts, she glanced up at him. He pulled her from Gala into his own embrace. Nialdlye wore a simple green shift that barely reached her thighs. One of Nialdlyes dark brows soared up. Her righteous rage dimmed, however, when she saw him flinch. They all remained shirtless but wore boots now, and Brevin and Lanthan were lightly armed. Shed never thought to see that again, not aimed at her. What shed done before had only amplified it. She screamed, unconsciously tearing at his hair. she asked, voice hoarse. Barefoot and topless, she felt more naked than she had in a long time. That, and you havent asked to talk to me alone before. I fell in love with you when I was only a shadow in the darkness. Ive an armful of the most precious woman in the world.

A strange hopelessness threatened underneath the pleasant thrum of release, but he fought it off. Savous crushed Hyles mouth with his, bearing the shorter man down to the ground. Why worry him? Her sinewy warrior had to pummel someone on a regular basis or he became antsy. His hands were comforting weights on her shoulders, helping her to ground.

2. Proper air ventilation speaking of fire in cooking, you must be particular about proper air ventilation in the area. Use exhaust fan or put windows in your kitchen so the air will properly circulate. You do not want to be all-sweaty when you are cooking so proper air ventilation will lessen the hot temperature caused by fire and other gadgets for cooking. Good air ventilation will also help you eliminate stinking odours from the food you are preparing. This way you will have cooler and smell-free kitchen which is pleasant to work in.
This was a major turning point in Gagas life. Boosted by the appreciation she received from Akon, Lady Gaga launched her own album the fame in august 2008. The album featured songs such as Just Dance and Poker Face that turned out to be smash hits across the English speaking world. The album went on to climb number one position in the UK, Canada, Germany and many other countries. In the United States the album reached number two on the Billboard 200 chart. The album won her six Grammy nominations.
