My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it. LikeLike Reply No idea, sorry. I have not put up my books, those I hope to sell one day. If someone makes money from what I put up under my copyright, then I guess I would have to sue. That would be distressing. LikeLike Reply First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks! LikeLike Reply Hi Antonio, I often start with a photo, and think about what it makes me feel. What’s special about it, if anything. Then I try to imagine myself in the picture, and usually that takes me down a path toward a poem. For stories, I outline my ideas, imagine the characters, imagine them in an exciting moment and thing about what they want, and then I write a rough draft living their exciting moment and helping them get what they want. I always know it’s a rough draft, and I try not to be too critical as I go. Then I go back over all the words, and think about whether or not they really convey what I’m trying to say, whether I used the best words. Those first 15 minutes of yours are probably essential time for you to organize your thoughts. I wouldn’t consider them lost, so much as time invested in a journey toward writing. I hope that answers your question. For some reason, your question was put in spam. I’m sorry it took awhile for me to find it. Happy Holidays!! Brenda LikeLike Reply This is so beautiful!

LikeLike Reply Hey Brenda, I’ve had several emails disappear into the ether lately (I’m blaming Mercury retrograde!), so I want to check and see if you got the email with the pic and short bio and book description. Also, I need your mailing address to send you your copy of Toymakers. Thanks! LikeLike Reply Um, I think so. It’s on my to do list to pull this together. I will try to get to this soon! I need to get through teaching my class tomorrow and Halloween. Woo-hoo! Brenda LikeLike Reply Ok, thanks! Just wanted to check. No rush. Happy Halloween!

My iphone takes remarkable pictures, all things considered. Thanks for visiting and commenting, I appreciate it. 🙂 Brenda LikeLike Reply You’re welcome 🙂 that is a damn good shot for a phone camera, maybe I should invest in an iphone! x LikeLike Reply It really does well if you have a steady hand and are patient and let it focus. No zoom, though, that is worth anything. I have a bad back, though, and I can’t carry a lot of weight around. So it works well for me. LikeLike Reply It sounds very handy, will be looking into it further 😀 x LikeLike Reply Liked this, and great pic to go along with it. LikeLike Reply Thanks!
