Day 3 ~ Writing Prompt ~ “Music”

If you’re participating in NaBloPoMo in November 2011

Thursday, November 3, 2011
Can you listen to music and write?  I am one person who can multi-task and listening to music is the most relaxing thing to do while I am writing.

What song did you hear today? The songs I play while I am on my computer while writing can be much of a mix but Yanni and Enya seem to be my favorite to play as I write.

Here are lyrics I love:

Day 4: Beautiful in my Eyes by Joshua Kadison


You’re my peace of mind in this crazy world.
You’re everything I’ve tried to find, your love is a pearl.
You’re my Mona Lisa, you’re my rainbow skies,
and my only prayer is that you realize
you’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

The world will turn and the seasons will change,
and all the lessons we will learn will be beautiful and strange.
We’ll have our fill of tears, our share of sighs.
And my only prayer is that you realize
you’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.

When there are lines upon my face from a lifetime of smiles,
and when the time comes to embrace for one long last while,
we can laugh about how time really flies.
We won’t say goodbye ’cause true love never dies.
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
that you will always grow ever more beautiful in my eyes.
The passing years will show that you will always grow
ever more beautiful in my eyes.

What about You?



Day 1: Writing Prompt-What is my favorite part about writing?

What is my favorite part about writing? I love that I have to freedom to write what I want.  I can choose topics of any one that I love.  Since joining this challenge I am going to try to challenge myself more than normal, even as I am getting ready to move for the 3rd time in one year to my final house destination (I hope).

That is the writing prompt for the first day of National Blog Posting Month: NaBloPoMo, as it is affectionately called.

The task is to publish a post every day of the month. This is one of my writing goals for this month.

I have been featured as a book reviewer here:

Yes You Can by Jackie Paulson

How to find your blogging Niche?

How to find your blogging Niche?

Create four Notebook pages and fill it out with the following questions:  In an attempt to narrow down my own, I have filled out the questions to share with each of you.


  • Things you’re crazy, insanely and utterly mad about – What makes me mad is people who are treated unequally.  I also hate injustices in any form.  For example, I have been divorced for 15 years and still fight for the rights for my daughter concerning child support from my ex husband.
  • Things you’re interested in learning about – I want to learn so many different things.  I am always on the net seeking new things to learn about.
  • Things you’re good at – I am good at reading, writing, research and law.  I am also good at organizing anything and cleaning anything.  I have another blog that talks about books and book reviews as this is one passion I have had since I was younger and now decided to blog about it.
  • Things you know a lot about – I know a lot about the cosmetology field.  I know a lot about the Security Filed and Paralegal as these are the fields of study that I have education and experience in.
