    Laura, your tags touch my heart and I just know your themes touch many many hearts. Also I know that you are an award-winning playwright. Did you know that Fringe of Marin Festival accepts new submissions every year? 15-minute plays. Contact Annette Lust, Creative Director, through and ask her what their submission guidelines are this year. I look forward to seeing you soon. Will you be at April 15 meeting ?
    Wishing you joy and light!

    Dear author Susan Zuzu Keller,

    More and more fans will find you through the compelling “tags” in your medical memoir, THE PROSE AND CONS OF CANCER.
    I suggest adding “true grit” as a tag and I applaud your courage and advocacy.

  • Joy Hemp says:

    Here are my tags.
    inspirational. uplifting, affirmations, positive thought, self help

  • Hi Coach Teresa, I didn’t know the tag words had to actually be in the blog!
    I will have to work them in, or else delete them as tags, and find others. For example, I have (tag) The Berkeley Girl, but not Berkeley and Girl, separately. And I have 1968, but “60s” is what I use most often. Big revelation!

    My current tags: 1968, Paris, London, activism, feminism (feminist is there!), historical fiction, literature, The Berkeley Girl, writing process.

    I’m done for today! Elise Frances Miller
