Morning Coffee . . . how we create – how we write – how we don’t self edit our work because that’s the death of it

We’re moving into more “themes” here instead of random chaos, but for me it’s always about chaos – haw haw!

 

Hope you’ll join in live on Tuesday mornings at 10 ET, but you can catch us on YouTube – muwah!

Today’s ‘show’ – creating from random words – how we create – how we write – how we don’t self edit our work because that’s the death of it – and Papito joins me in my closet.

 

Last Tuesday’s “show:” where I was completely low-key – I was! believe it or not – my insomnia gripping me harder that night and thus that morning the shadow of it was all over my personality – I was actually subdued! Dang! We chatted about writing/creating about Place – Home- Geography.

 

Y’all join in now, ya hear! :D

 

 

Our Rose & Thorn Journal: Saying Goodbye.

Join us on R&T's Facebook page!

Hello, gentle readers & contributors:

It is with great regret and sadness that we are “closing down” production of Rose & Thorn Journal after nearly 15 years.

This decision did not come easily, as it is always hard to let go of a long-held “labor of love.”

We truly appreciate our wonderful volunteer staff. (You made each issue shine!) Likewise, the talented contributors of art, prose, and poetry. Your works filled every R&T edition with offerings for readers to enjoy. Thanks also to our supporters, fans, and friends.

Our last issue will be the spring issue in May.
We would love it if you would drop by our R&T Facebook page and leave a note.

Thank you all.

Linky Love: Rose & Thorn Journal: we heart you!

Good Snowy Morning Y’all Wonderful People!

My linky loves will be focused on R&T this morning, because the Rose & Thorn staff, where Angie Ledbetter and I are Publishing Editors, are working hard to have our winter issue go live on January 15th, which is this Sunday.

We also have been working on the newsletter with our wonderful newsletter editor, and as well, along with our Managing Editor (who also works very hard to have the issue go live without a hitch – doing much of the website uploading and things Angi and I go ‘ungh’ about), we are making some much-needed and much-anticipated changes to our journal.

We hope you will stop by and peruse the fall issue before it goes bye-bye (although it will remain, along with the others, in our Archives/Past Issues page). And then, we hope you will stop back by this Sunday the 15th and peruse our winter issue, which you can enter by clicking on our Featured Artist’s art, which will change once our new issue goes live Sunday. You may also find the prose and poetry by clicking on the “buttons” – “journal” and then “current issue.”

The next issue after winter will be in May. This is part of the changes we are implementing. We will be uploading the newsletter contents onto our Rose & Thorn Blog, where we have our Back Story–the people behind our prose, poetry, and artists, so stop by and read up on the exiting changes to the journal, and peruse the other wonderful posts there! Or sign up for the newsletter and receive all the news in your inbox!

We Heart You all – our readers, poets, writers, artists. Please feel free – and we are most sincere – to contact us and let us know what you think. As well, many of our writers, poets, and artists love hearing from you and provide their emails and/or websites/blogs. Give them some Love!

That is my linky love for today. Next Friday, I will be back with my regularly schedule links. Now y’all have a wonderful weekend, and remember: Gratitude is a beautiful, Gratitude is the key. Practice it and soon, as you do any “habit,” you will feel it enter your marrow and give you the life-nutrients you require.
