My Love of Synonyms

I love synonyms!  Give me a common word and I want to find every way there is to say it.  This is a fun way to be creative and write poetry too! For example, in the poem below I used the word “average” and found every word I could to mean close to the same… Continue reading My Love of Synonyms

My five cents worth on getting ahead on Twitter

Wow! Great advice! Thanks!

writerchristophfischer

Now to be honest, I have a recipe… Continue reading Healthy Autumn Banana Bread

My ecstasy is surely filled with pure delight. Spending time with my family – husband, kids, grand-kids, and… Continue reading Sheer Bliss
