The Time Will Pass Anyway

As we all go through our lives, whether you're a writer like me, or a musician, or an accountant, or a high school principal, or a customer service rep, or whatever, we all seem to be oblivious to the way that time keeps on ticking away. So what does that mean to us all? In the end, it means that we all only get so much and time is an unforgiving resource in our lives. It cannot.not be saved. There is only so much for everyone.

What's in a Name? A guest post by Julie Frayn

Thanks to my friend, J. Scott Sharp for inviting me to guest post. I  couldn't be more pleased that my words are appearing on his blog.  But it is my first time guest-blogging so please, be gentle.

Sometimes a story is ignited by inspiration found in the perfect name.  One of my shorts is titled The Sun is Setting on Geneva Early.  No need to correct my grammar, it isn’t about an evening in Switzerland.  Geneva Early is a character’s name.  A dying old lady in the final stages of Alzheimer’s.  The entire story flowed from that name, from that title.
