A soon-to-be “Happy New Year!” to my Right-Side-Up Stories Friends!Thank you for your support during 2013. It was a different year and I have learned a great deal from being back in the classroom teaching High School Theater Arts!

A burst of writing efforts have seeded in me with my teaching. I have been drawn to the Christmas story during this last year which resulted in a new story—“A Christmas Inconvenience”—which was shared several times during Christmas. The season of Christmas is such a powerful time to tell and hear a story. Over the years, I have made a concerted effort to write a yearly Christmas story. There are seven stories and a play in my treasure trove of efforts.

The play was “The Green Velvet Christmas Dress”, and I have been challenged by a dear friend and fellow actor to write the story of the play. My dream is to make another hand-made, numbered and signed book. I have begun the book and have five chapters!

Perhaps, the spilling out of my story here is for the encouragement of another writer. In this new fresh year, I encourage you to dream about your creativity coming forth or being renewed, once again.

Here’s something I am very excited to share in 2014!

I haven’t done a workshop is a while, so this will be such great fun me and for you! I have decided to allow teens, 16 years and older to join the workshop. I know they will add a great deal to theconversation and community. If you have been to one of my Storyday workshops you know how you’ve came away refreshed, supplied and ready to begin or continue on with greater joy as a storyteller.

I can’t wait for January 24th! If you’d like to speak with me personally concerning the workshop, leave a

message on my Right-Side-Up Stories line. 800-369-9230 or local 626-836-3532

Happy New Year!
