1. People to visit my blog and engage in conversations. www.literaryexpression.blogspot.com

2. Unique postcards or letters from people around the world. I hope this will give some creative inspiration to continue on my journey of creative writing eventually leading to a published novel.

3. Adivce or information on becoming a writer.

4. A JOB..... been without one for 2 YEARS! Went back to college to get my BA in English Literature with Technical and Creative Writing Emphasis. I was in construction adminsitration and purchasing but now I think I would like to get involved in the literary world if possible.

One of the only good things from being unemployed is going back for my education.


Thanks for reading. Have  a great day!

I shall give you the same advice I was given a number of years ago when I first started writing.  Carry a notebook with you (size doesn't matter) everywhere you go (don't forget a pen) and write whenever the whim hits you.  This is especially ideal when you are at the doctor's, you've been at a dead stop in traffic for ten minutes, or at the bar (write about the stumbling drunks).  I also suggest browsing some groups on line that host prompts in case you need a jump start.
