Poems on Scraps of Paper

Wrote a poem, lost the scrap of paper I wrote it on. Recalled the beginning, wrote more, it’s better.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

  1. Yes!! I’ve just spent an hour looking for where I wrote a meeting date and time in August on a scrap. Those scraps just don’t hang around. I’ve moved to recording everything in a spiral notebook but didn’t have it with me when I scheduled the appointment. I resist putting info on my cell phone but maybe that would solve the errant pens and tablets.

    Looking for your next installment on Monti.
