I thought long and hard for a title for my blog
it was already taken.
So I settled
on something better. “Alphabet Story” whets my
appetite for words that I turn into a flavorful stew of tales.
Books have always been a big part of my life. The library
was my favorite place since there wasn’t much
money. My favorite books were the Nancy Drew Series.
I read them all
and wanted more. I shivered at the
darker tales of Edgar Allen Poe;
H.G. Wells was fascinating.
I turned to
beautiful heroines and then
became inspired reading “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
As a teacher, I pulled out all the old fables
and Newberry winners. My students cried along with me
as we enjoyed “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Velveteen Rabbit”.
Now that I’m retired, I enjoy the process of writing.
Choosing the right words
to turn into a meaningful story gives me joy. My plan is
to work my way through the alphabet one letter at a time.
I hope you enjoy a taste.
