How to Write

An excellent essay on art and craft of words ...

Rule No. 11: There are no rules. If everyone jumped off a bridge, would you do it, too? No. There are no rules except the ones you learned during your Show and Tell days. Have fun. If they donít want to be friends with you, theyíre not worth being friends with. Most of all, just be yourself.

Scorched Earth in the Midwest

Pretty much what it's like up here in Central Indiana, too.

It's July and the temperatures throughout southern Indiana and northern Kentucky are an inferno, in some cases scorching to over 100 degrees, and we know itís not even August yet; itís only going to get hotter. Several days in a row I get a mind-splitter headache; itís so bad, it hurts to blink.
