Items mentioned in this episode:
- Chaplets audio project update - links as soon as they are available!
- My spring 2015 blog identity crisis, and happy resolution.
- My childhood love of writing, details in the video!
- First piece at CatholicMom.com will go live Monday July 13th, I will post a link!
- For all of the increased interaction in the comments on this blog, THANK YOU!!
- St. Francis de Sales - patron saint of writers.
Dear Tiffany, I love your writing about your everyday life, or "slice of life" as you called it. Your humor reminds me of a very beloved writer (and Catholic convert!) Erma Bombeck. Here are some quotes from her:ReplyDelete
"Insanity is hereditary. You can catch it from your kids."
"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first one being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."
"Seize the moment. Think of all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart."
"There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt."
Well thank you, Capt. Jeff! Honestly, that is my favorite type of writing to do, and it's the reason that I started this blog back in 2008. :) It's also my favorite style of writing to *read*. This may be the reason I can never finish any spiritual classics, which isn't necessarily a good thing, but just keepin' it real. ;-)ReplyDelete
As someone who is always short of time, I like to read about how people integrate their religious practice into their lives. I am particularly waiting for your chaplet recordings:) I also adore reading about your dance adventures.ReplyDelete
Amy, fascinating! Thank you so much. I too am very curious to see how these chaplet recordings will go :) and what other projects I can come up with that incorporates in the audio recorder. And I'm so glad to know that you like the dance posts! Shelia mentioned that earlier this year as well, that the dance posts were her favorite. I'm so glad to know that because I sometimes shy away from sharing dance stories since I didn't know who among my readers would also enjoy reading about that niche. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
