So, you may have noticed that I took the highlights section down. I did this because I was getting repetitious in my postings. In my biography section, there are links to various places I've been published, feel free to click on them. There are also links to my work on Yahoo! Voices (formerly Associated Content) and Bubblews, who I still occasionally write for.
The Highlights section is now a Poetry section. On occasion, I will post poems that I've written or that have inspired me in some way shape or form from poets of the past.
What have I been working on? I lost my notes for a story I was working on. I am sure I will find them at some point. I know they are in the house somewhere. This was my great mystery story set at the onset of World War II. Other than that, I've been writing poetry, working on a humor article, and writing short stories (one is a fantasy/sci-fi sort of story). Is this blog considered work? :P *smiles*
One last thing, in regard to writing and writers, if you are a writer and would like to be featured on my other writers page, please send me a link to your website via the questions and comments page. In the subject line write The Lady Writes. With that said, I reserve the right to not put a link up in my Other Writers section for any reason.
In closing, I would like to mention the passing of Lucy Bear. She was a 3-year-old grizzly who lived at the Montana Grizzly Encounter in Bozeman, Montana. I consider the bears there my brothers and sisters (I am serious. They all embody characteristics I enjoy and love and wish more people had. I consider all other bears my cousins and my fellow bearheads know this. Yes, I love bears and have an extended bear family). Anyway, Lucy was beginning to get really sick at the beginning of January and having really bad seizures. There was a fundraiser to raise money for Lucy's medical care and in under 24 hours, all of us were able to raise the funds and then-some. Lucy had multiple brain lesions and possibly water on her brain, though the exact cause of her death is not known because they were still waiting for some test results. She was put on alot of meds and for awhile we thought she was going to make it.
When I heard she had passed, it was 3 in the morning. I woke my mother up and began to bawl. I was able to watch Lucy on her den cam and then outside with Brutus. I learned so much! Really folks--bears are not all that different than people. We have to start learning that bears really do not want to harm people. It is people who do the harming. Anyway, Brutus is very sad, as are his mom and dad and all the people who knew Lucy Bear. She will forever be in my heart!
