I had an unusual experience this week. I am going to buy a new laptop because my laptop is very old. I was pricing them and I asked the clerk questions about the model’s capacity for documents. He asked me why and I explained that I was a writer. Suddenly he was asking me questions about writing. I have never had that happen like that before, not just out for the day shopping. It was really interesting and different. Of course I helped him as much as I could. He asked how to get started as a writer, how to get the ideas out. My answer, “Write, just write.” I did go into more details but I think the most important thing for any writer is to start. The hardest thing is to just sit down in front of a blank pieces of paper. Until my Dad passed away I had never had writers block. I had a huge boulder sized block after he passed way. The way I got through it was to write something, in my case poetry and writing how I felt in my diary. It was a discipline. Now I am writing on all burners. Of course it did help to have my brother and Mom say that Dad would really be upset if he knew that I had stopped writing. That truly spurred me on. So again if you want to write and don’t know where to start. Write poetry, keep a journal. Just get the words out somehow.

It is not a surprise to anyone who knows me that I am a classic movie fan. I am always happy to talk about old movies with any fellow fans of classic film. It always makes me very happy to meet a young person who loves classic films and stars. But when I meet a person who only knows half the story there is something inside me that just compels me to let them know; There is more to an Icon (like Audrey Hepburn) then their look! http://wp.me/p2MXCg-3j via
