One of my favorite storytellers is here today. Molly Greene is a woman with a load of chutzpah and the consistent ability to keep me amused and keep the Crayolas out of my ears. We often bounce ideas, vent, and discuss foibles and follies, and when you need a cheerleader, Molly is right there. Today she’s sharing about a simpler—albeit less comfortable—time in her life and the wisdom that came from it. Thanks to Molly for being my guest, and I hope you all enjoy! Don’t forget to check out her new book, Mark of the Loon, which was released this month.
I was a baby when I got married at 22 (and yes, if I had it to do over again, I would try to talk myself out of it). My husband was my best friend, and I assumed we would be a couple forever. Not so. But we had some outrageous adventures during the ten years we were together. We traveled, we (I) dreamed about our future, we bought and sold property. We had a few successes, and we definitely crashed and burned more than once. Continue reading
The international volunteer program on Israeli kibbutzim has pretty much gone away, but like Jerry Seinfeld and Sacha Baron Cohen, I was lucky enough to experience it in its heyday. I invite you to join me in a hop over to Molly Greene’s blog today to read how it turned out to be a life-changing experience. As one of 80+ volunteers on Givat Haim Ihud–some Jewish, most of us not–I was part of a crazy, eclectic mix (and a few lost souls), there to work, learn, travel, party and get up to a variety of shenanigans…sometimes frowned upon by the more serious Israelis…
A big thank you to Molly Greene for hosting me (again) on her most awesome blog. The countdown is on for the release of her new novel, Mark of the Loon, due out in mid-May.
This is what we did to English volunteers
This is what we did to South African volunteers
This week, I’m a guest on Molly Greene’s blog (a fabulous site for both practical information for writers and personal, heartwarming stories). Molly took me under her wing last fall when I was a new Twitter user, teaching me the ropes and answering lots of my questions. I was delighted when she asked me to create a post on my experience with some of the common Twitter management tools, and I think anyone who has been test-driving these tools and trying to optimize their Twitter time will find something useful in there. Here’s a direct link to the post on Molly’s blog.
Thanks, you guys, and I hope that you’ll post some comments over at Molly’s to share some of your favorite Twitter tricks and tools. And don’t forget to watch that space: Molly’s first novel, Mark of the Loon, will be released this year! xo
