2013 is just around the corner...and I'm so excited to welcome the New Year in both worlds. 2011 was memorable, to say the least. First, thank you to all my friends for your amazing support. I appreciate all the encouragement and most of all, your friendship. Whether during poetry readings at Four Bridges, author series, microfiction and more, open mics, art festivals, gallery openings, live music concerts, the Seated Scribes, or drum circles, you made it more meaningful in countless ways. For that, I cherish every moment.
This past year, I started writing poetry again and even dabbled
in microfiction. I now have an ever evolving short story series called,
"The Adventures of Lola in 100 words or more." Each week, I share social
commentaries, hotel dramas, romance, life and death tidbits from Lola's
perspective. I never thought I would delve so deeply into a character,
let alone writing about an industry filled with mysteries and yet part
of a global experience.
If you couldn't tell based on the subject matter
of choice, I'm fascinating by hotels and what goes on when guests are
not paying attention. In every environment, what I've always been
curious about is the life stories of the individuals that walk through
the hotel lobbies as guests, staff and passerby. What can Lola teach
us from their slice of life? What change will Lola make in her life? So
many questions to answer. Well, to find out what Lola is up to, you
better keep reading the blog or you'll miss out on her next
If you love the Lola series, please share your opinion in the comment section. I would love to hear from you:)
Have a fabulous New Year!
