Writers Travel 2,200 Miles to Find One Another, Partner on Project
Sunday, May 04, 2008  3:03:00 PM

by Carolyn HowardJohnson



Arts/Entertainment
Sharing with Writers,a newsletter-aid for writers, now has a humor columnist, thanks to serendipity.


Award-winning author and authors' advocate Carolyn Howard-Johnson and former Glendale News-Press columnist  Anne Louise Reinhard live just 10 minutes from each other here in in the great Los Angeles area, but didn't meet until they each traveled 2,200 miles to Dayton University's Erma Bombeck Writing Conference in Dayton, Ohio.  To further the coincidence, Howard-Johnson is a sporadic movie reviewer for the News-Press.

Anne Louise attended an editing workshop conducted by Howard-Johnson, author of The Frugal Editor, and as she listened to the author's references to her hometown, realized that Howard-Johnson was talking about their hometown.  So after the session, Anne Louise introduced herself, and handed the author her card. Good thing she did, because it turns out that Howard-Johnson forgot to collect her newsletter sign-up sheet from the session, and would have been unable to contact the attendees if it weren't for the business cards she had collected.  So she sent an-e-mail to everyone whose card she had, offering the newsletter to them.

 The response was huge, and Anne Louise was among those who asked for an e-handout. Howard-Johnson says, "I'm a great recycler. Think of the paper we saved!" .  The two writers started e-mailing, and now Howard-Johnson's "Sharing with Writers" newsletter has a creative new columnist, one Anne Louise Reinhard,  to fill a previously empty niche -- humor writing. Howard-Johnson says, "Even my subscribers who aren't humorists can learn something from Anne Louise's 'Humor Hints.' Even a serious book proposal can benefit from a touch of humor."

Howard-Johnson is the founder of Authors' Coalition ( www.authorscoalitionandredenginepress.com ). Writers interested in her "Sharing with Writers" newsletter filled with tips on craft, promotion and tech may send an e-mail with "Subscribe" in the subject line to HoJoNews.aol.com. Learn more about her at www.howtodoitfrugally.com .

Anne Louise can be read, and reached, at http://annelouise.net
