I like this, Katie. The writing is getting better all the time.

I like your description of summer, time, AND wisdom. And you're right we need to LIVE during our time.

writing again. This is one of your best. -gene.
Proud Mary (Short Story) - 11/5/2009 2:33:10 PM
I really like Mary's spunk. She has a nice name too.
The Letter (Short Story) - 11/5/2009 11:38:28 AM
Well I think it definately has potential. At one time this theme was used a lot in writing but I haven't seen it in a while so would be a welcome renewal and with the added twist of the secret sister...could be a real winner.
The Letter (Short Story) - 11/5/2009 11:36:36 AM
This was excellent! Taking a writing class myself, I'm trying to absorb all the knowledge I can through other peoples work. You had me in the story from the beginning to the end. Best of luck to you in your class. I hope I can get through mine! Just a bit more difficult than I imagined.
Proud Mary (Short Story) - 8/8/2009 9:24:23 AM
Mary, Mary, quite contrary! Katie, every neighborhood
needs a knuckles-cracking Mary. -gene.
Proud Mary (Short Story) - 8/6/2009 5:03:53 AM
We had a few tough cookies like that in our neighborhood as well. And my siblings and I were usually on the recieving end of the knuckle-cracking "toughie".
Victoria Winters Part 2 (Short Story) - 6/16/2009 11:18:18 AM
I like the way you're developing your story, Katie.
I'm anticipating a lot of suspense in the chapters to come.
At some point, you will have to do a bit of editing, but
in the meantime, on with the story. David obviously needs
a firm hand. -gene.
Victoria Winters (Short Story) - 6/13/2009 9:36:30 PM
Katie, it appears that Victoria is off on quite a journey
to find herself. I look forward to the next installment.
Sammy the Flying Squirrel (Short Story) - 6/4/2009 12:52:47 PM
Katie, I guess there's a moral here. As I was reading, it
occurred to me that perhaps Sammy should reach for the stars
which shine like Tiffany diamonds. If he could grab one of
those sparkling stars--now that would be worthy of a story in
the New York Times. -gene.

do more of this kind of writing. -gene.

Living Your Life On Purpose (Article) - 1/19/2009 4:20:18 PM
I love your thoughts and outlook on life. I hear you whisper and ask kindly with good points to make. Yes, accepting yourself and being proud of the little things about yourself is the first step at someone accepting you. I learned this the hard way. Now, with peace of mind about who I am, what I'm about, I can share it with others and they find me to be awesome. How cool is that to know? Confidence is the key.
What's Really Real (Article) - 12/29/2008 3:00:20 PM
A very postive write and no truer words can be spoken either. It is good. Finally got around to reading it like I promised. You can be positive girl and are going to make it in this life. Good write, encourage to all. Love, lois your great friend always.
What's Really Real (Article) - 12/28/2008 7:29:53 PM
Absolutely wonderful, no matter how hard it is or how many times I have to get up, wounded pride is only a sin. My new found Self Esteem teeters at times, but I know who I am, beautiful from the inside out. Thank you for writing, Katie. Warmth and Love to you.

I think you made all great points to a happy and well intentioned Holiday Season, as Santa at the mall I see so much both good and bad but if people would just take the time to be nice...what a difference it would make.
I Can! (Article) - 11/14/2008 7:47:18 PM
I love this attitude and the way you think/write. Warmth to you.
I Can! (Article) - 11/9/2008 8:24:10 PM
Sweet Katie! YES WE CAN is the right attitude to hold on to for dear life. The whole point is in never giving up on what matters most to you. This is the Katie I have come to admire, now keep smiling no matter how many times you fall. Just get back up and TRY again. What a fantastic, uplifting piece this is....
Be always safe,

Right on, Katie - "each day is something to cherish and enjoy" - and we make it so. The alternative is not worth living.
The Watch (Article) - 6/6/2008 5:46:41 PM
Remembering my Mother sitting on the back porch steps in her blue housedress saying it was too hot a day to move. She always made the best fried chicken, breaded it with pancake batter before frying for picnics and always greeted people at her home with homemade pies, and food. Made the best bologna spread for sandwiches. Oh, she came many a time to my house and cooked holiday dinners. She ended up in a church nursing home, due to her own making, and died there. You have made the Watch a fine tribute to your mother too, but our lifestyles were so different. Each of us has our own made memories of Mom though. Thanks for sharing yours with me. Lois C.

The Intergallactic School For Secretaries of Superior Intelligence and Wit (Article) - 6/6/2008 5:35:34 PM
Sounds so amazing how you can put the words like this and come out smelling like roses. It is a good write and very interesting, very very interesting, the future could really be like this. Dark, no water, space ships and all you put it in realistic words more than I can. Good doings here.
sunshine (Article) - 5/11/2008 8:22:56 AM
Yes, sunshine is nice in our life but we can make our own sunshine too on dreary days. Just be nice to people and do what you want to do. Everyone at church today was saying not looking forward to rain that is coming tomorrow. Weater is cooler than usual here in PA too. Oh well, take what weather comes, can't change it. Sunny days are ahead soon.

The Intergallactic School For Secretaries of Superior Intelligence and Wit (Article) - 9/18/2007 2:30:46 PM
This is wonderful. I am surprised that you do not have any comments ahead of mine. You must have just put it here. Hang this up on a bulletin board at some business school. You need to pass this around where there are people working in offices. It is that good.

The best gift (Poetry) - 4/15/2009 2:50:03 PM
One never knows where true friendship comes from and it is always a blessing to have taken steps along life with a friend throughout that long journey. The evidence of self esteem abounds in this and other of your writes and brings a warm smile in memories of those good moments. Write well and prosper through that same warmth. Not all is ever wasted for we learn from each and every smile upon that path.

I had to go and take a walk in the stillness of new fallen snow last night... Looking at the sky, I asked my husband if it was possible to count all of the shades of blue there... The hush, the joy, the optimism, the beauty... nothing is quite the same when you hear the whisper of Christmas...

Katie, in very simple words, you have recounted for us items of great personal value, items that we all should strive to live up to, especially with our life partners.
Gratitude (Poetry) - 11/10/2008 10:26:17 AM
I have gratitude in my heart for you for being my friend, so for being the beloved person you are. God is love and you are loved to by many and it counts to have the love of your friends and to keep the friendships going strong. You can tell the true friends and the false ones. Many are apt to try to destroy your love but they cannot because God won't let them, you are loved and always will be. Stay strong and never give up your dreams, they will come true, just give them time. I have some dreams I am not giving up on too and I know they will come true with time.

I like the fact that you stated in this poem a friend takes you as you are.

Sorry If I haven't read yours lately, but I know yours are great and thank you for leading me to htis one. I choose by title sometimes and have to many to read I don't get to my closest friends.

Good one, Katie. I can almost identify with this old cowboy,
standing on the sideline trying to relive the glory days.
Just kidding. There ain't no glory days, pardner.

The Circus of Three Rings (Poetry) - 7/16/2008 7:09:32 PM
So exciting a story, that poor old cowboy has retired I suppose but keeps going to see the circus of three rings. How do you think up such things, I know you have been writing since 8 yrs old and you are quite adept at it.
Priceless (Poetry) - 7/14/2008 5:29:48 PM
Katie, yes, we should live our lives to the fullest and expect "no" tomorrows. A nice write.

You are so correct in this light hearted write that looks around and smiles at all the things we are so blessed with. I recently had a sister in law go blind and I thought to myself how tragic to never again be able to see the things of beauty we all too often take for granted. Well done Katie.

So true and there are so few real friends in our lifetimes that we can truly think about this way but the ones that are...are worth their weight in gold...and love.
friends (Poetry) - 7/12/2008 11:57:51 AM
This is full of truth. To have a real friend is one of the greatest gift on earth. I've got several that I know I could call on any time day or night and they would be here for me. A friend, is like family, the smiles are a ray of light and their hearts as pure as gold. A nice write.

aurora borealis (Poetry) - 6/24/2008 7:00:34 PM
Never was able to see the aurora borealis, but read about them in many of the novels I have read in the past. Beautiful lights they say they are, nothing like seen before. Someday I might be able to see them, I can hope anyway.

Being You Is Good Enough (Poetry) - 6/7/2008 11:16:21 AM
This is an inspirational poem.To quote the US Army commerical "Be All That You Can Be".This is what makes this world a very special place to live.Everybody is different and they should feel proud of who they are no matter what color,race,gender,shape,size,etc.All of us make mistakes and flaws every once in a while.Everybody tries so hard to be like Superman where in reality each and every one of us has a kryptonite.Just keep on smiling and know in your heart that you are good enough and that each day,you are improving your ways.There is always people who are trying to put other people down.That happen to me a lot in my life,but I know better then to let their words stop me from being who I am.Everybody goes through that.I absolutely love your poem and people should use your poem as a way to live their lives and become better and more spiritual human beings.Thank you for sharing your poem

I was not too thanksful for today. Upon awakening this morning and realizing I was alive was not a fun thing for me. But I guess I do have lots to be thankful for. As you write so naturally about things, I pine over them and take them too much to hear. Better days are ahead for me, I just feel it. Just not appreciating what I do have now at this day and moment.
