Will Travel For Words: Falling into Doing Nothing by Karen A. Chase

Karen A. Chase This month at the James River Writers Conference in Richmond, I’m moderating a panel on making time to write. With four panelists, we’ll review all the ways in which writers find excuses to avoid writing and how to overcome them. The topic is very applicable to me. In addition to prepping for that conference, I’m working on three paid copywriting jobs, setting up writing shows for 2015, in a book club and editing/rewriting a manuscript (which is supposed to be my main job right now).

Online Gaming by Margo Kelly


The inspiration for my debut novel, Who R U Really?, came when my daughter was nearly abducted by an online predator, but the underlying circumstances began earlier than that.

As a mom of three children, I can easily recall the days when I sat my toddlers in front of a 30 minute television show on PBS so I could steal a quick nap on the couch. Being a parent is exhausting. The kids have grown over the years, and the entertainment options have changed—not just for our family but also for our society.
