I love this, Beth. This comes right when I'm back to being frustrated with my writing.I have one manuscript in being edited and should be starting a followup manuscript and here I can't even think of decent blog articles.

Words always seem to flow from you with such elegance. My writing feels more like dragging feet through thick mud. I plod toward an endpoint, stopping often to wonder if it is worth the effort. ords

Advice like this, from you and from other authors, put things back in perspective. Writing is definitively something that improves with time and experience, even for those of us not naturally gifted.

Oh, good -- off to read both!

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
