Ever wondered about the faces behind your favorite blogs? Who are they, really?
To My Irish Readers
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY
May you always have,
A sunbeam to warm you
Good Luck to charm you,
And a sheltering angel
So, nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you,
Faithful friends near you
And, whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.
What an interesting word. It’s a word we’ve heard a lot of lately and refers to a number of different things- a list of accomplishments, an account of specific occurrences, sports, safety, dental, medical, court, or criminal records.
However, when I saw this word, I thought of only one thing – a record. That thin, black, plastic disc which carried within its fine lines, the songs of my youth.
I can still remember going to the five and dime store, buying the latest hit single, racing home, and nearly wearing the thing out on mom’s prized stereo.
We were all in love with Elvis! CD‘s are convenient and more durable. But, there’s nothing like slipping a brand new vinyl record from its paper cover, placing it on the turntable, and dancing the afternoon with my sisters. Fond memories of a simpler time.
What about you? Remember vinyl records? Who was your favorite singer?

Someone told me once I began writing, I’d never be able to sit through a movie or television drama without dissecting the plot. They were right.
For those Nashville fans who haven’t watched it yet and are reading this – heads-up – spoilers ahead.
This episode was the most seamless example of good script writing, I’ve seen in a while. I could easily pick out, the goal, conflicts, raising tensions, foreshadowing events, and subplots. My own anxiety increased as the scenes unfolded and the subtle bits of foreshadowing lead me slowly toward the inevitable and unexpected ending (diaster).
The episode was one of the most believable and emotional scenes I’ve ever watched on a screen. It was heartbreaking and powerful.
What Can Nashville Teach Us?
To write scenes that pull our audience (readers) in through genuine emotions, realistic problems (conflicts), seamless subplots, and disasters/dilemmas that leave them breathless from chapter to chapter.
