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

Since I mentioned that my sales seem related to my Twitter activity, I’ve been asked several times to write about my experience with Twitter, so here goes. I cannot claim to have studied Twitter and admittedly my Twitter knowledge can still be hit and miss, but these are my anecdotal views.

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

Persimmons taste like a cross between a banana … Continue reading Persimmon–An Asian Fruit
