Best Storytellas in Town, Contest Starts Today!

In appreciation of Black Music Month, celebrated the month of June, OSAAT Entertainment & Concord Music Group present the Best Storytellas in Town Contest!
Stories will be Judged on…

Premise. Your story must involve music. How does music inspire you? Do you sing? Play an instrument? Have a memorable experience about attending a live concert? Do you enjoy telling stories… is there music in your message?
Creativity. Just because I've never seen a black hawk play a percussion doesn't mean you haven't.
Original. Do you have a written work stored in a file that's never been published or shared before because you didn't quite know what to do with it?
Length. Entries should be at least 5000 words; but not exceed 10,000 words.
Storytelling. Think 'dominos cascading.' Make that lead paragraph sing, but don't forget the background vocalists.

A small piece of wisdom; try to have a little fun with the piece remembering often the best things in life happen when we throw a little something together and be done with it.

Contest is open to U.S. residents in the 50 U.S. States and Puerto Rico. If you are under 18 years of age, please have your parent or legal guardian fill out and sign the consent section on the entry form.

Winners will be notified July 20, 2013 by email, and announced on OSAAT Entertainment's website and social media channels, including but not limited to: OEBooks Blog, Facebook and Twitter.

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
