RLS has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl holding my first of his books, a Little Golden Book my Mom got for me. She and I quoted those sweet verses all the time. He is how I discovered poetry at the age of 3 and why I love it . . . and why I have been a writer and poet since I could hold a pencil. He said:
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. – Robert Louis Stevenson -

Ready, Set, Done! That is the Daily Post Challenge and I am ready to roll! So many people ask me about writing. They want to know so many things, such as:
- Where do you get your ideas?
- What do you do for real work?
- How did you get to be a writer?
- How did you get started?
Ideas are everywhere around all of us! Writing is real work and a real blessing! If you are not blessed by your work, look further! A writer is SOMEONE WHO WRITES! To get started, I simply put words on a blank page! Try it! Just start! You do not have to share it, spell it right, put commas in properly . . . just stop right now and consider things meaningful in your life . . . take the first one that came to mind and go! You are now a writer!

I didn’t like the music
Until I began to dance
And that made all the difference.
