Summer Salad

by Tamara Passey

Not a recipe. Just a title for a post with a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

First, this:
Today is launch day for Possession by Elana Johnson, who if I haven't told you already, is one of the coolest people on the planet! If you want to get to know her better, visit her blog at the link below. She's just plain cool! I've read chapters 1 and 2 of the book and I'm hooked. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy and finish it! I'd love to know who else is reading it this summer.

Now a little of that:
Meaning that poetry challenge I took part in over at Karen's blog.
Long story short - I didn't think I'd have time to try it. Hopped over to her blog to check it out anyway, probably because poetry is my first love and I can't resist a good challenge. Next thing I know that Celtic Butterfly was inspiring all kinds ideas. And there I was, writing a new poem. My heart-felt thanks to Karen for the challenge and giving me a reason to break out of my writing rut and exercise my poetry writing muscles. Which brings me to a point I know I've learned before but apparently need to learn again:

Writing begets writing. It can be poetry, blogs, books, essays, emails, morning pages, the list goes on. The way to keep our writing fresh and flowing, is to, well . . . keep writing. 

There's my summer salad. Have a great writing day!


  1. That is a nice Summer Salad! Even though I wouldn't mind getting a new Summer Salad recipe!! ;) I also can't wait to read Possession!!

  2. I know, what was I thinking! Now I'll need to go hunt a good recipe. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. WRITING CONTEST....My blog Amish Stories is having its first ever contest this week. The First prize winner will win 2 tickets to tour the farm where the 1985 move "Witness" staring Harrison Ford and Kelly Mcgillis was made in Strasburg,Pa . This farm is now Amish owned, and the family has given permission for folks to tour their farm. This may be the last time anyone will be able to walk and see the same things that Harrison Ford and the other actors saw during the making of "Witness". The Witness tour should last about 2.5 hours. In addition to the Witness farm tour tickets, 1st prize winner will also receive 2 tickets for Jacobs choice. There will also be a 2nd place prize, which will be 2 tickets for the Amish Homestead. Please go to My blog www.AmishStorys.com for contest details, and more information on the prizes. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.
