Dear Sisters of the Quill,

Having always been a big fan of writing with pen and paper, I’ve had to work hard to evolve with technology: conquering cut and paste back when Word Star made it infinitely more cumbersome, track changes (which this editor now appreciates as much as the invention of the printing press), the social realm of Face Book and LinkedIn (still amazed my son wanted to friend me!). And - soon to come - zipping and unzipping files (which sounds a bit intimate to me).

May mastering these technological means by which to share our worlds through our words ward off brain rot.

I’m up for the new adventure of blogging because of you: the sisters I never had growing up, friends that will never be surpassed in generosity, and my most precious co-conspirators in literary crime. You understand and share my obsession with pulling the sunshine and dregs from the ether to slap down on paper. I admire you, Janet, Julie, and Shannon. I am grateful for the opportunity to take this journey with you. Love and Hugs from the Inkpot.


  1. Yea, Karen! You are blogging and not doing a bad job of it. If I remember correctly, though, aren't you the first of us to have a website? You aren't as techno-challenged as you would have us believe.

    So all forward to embark on this new endeavor. Sisters rock.

  2. Shannon, I must give credit where it is due. Christian Lyons was responsible for setting up my web site initially and convincing me I should. And yes, Sisters rock! Inkpot
