My (Un)Eventful Life

Sometimes I think I lead a rather boring life. While friends of mine travel to exotic locales to do research for their next book, I sit home in the midst of a forest of pines and oaks, dinking around on my computer and paying for home repairs.

Then I reflect, and find that my life isn't so boring after all. My forest is very lovely, and I am the envy of many people because I can live here the year around.

I've been to several writers' gatherings this year:

1. ANWA's Writers Conference in March
2. LDStorymakers' Writers Conference in March
3. Western Writers of America's Convention in June
4. ANWA's Arizona Retreat in July

I traveled to attend my grandson's baptism and a family party last month.

Sadly, I've traveled to several funerals this year.

I get to meet wonderful writers to interview on this blog.

I can write novels that touch readers' hearts.

I have friends in many places, including close to home and far away.

I have a family that loves me.

I get to give service to many of those friends and family members, and to several worthy organizations.

I have books to read, music to listen to, and movies to watch.

Okay, not a boring life after all.


  1. You are an amazing woman, Marsha! Thanks for the example of an attitude of gratitude. You do lead a very interesting life. are one of my heroes!

  2. Not boring at all and you are a fantastic blogger with such fun interviews!

  3. Your life sounds pretty fulfilling, Marsha, and definitely not boring or uneventful. Keep up the good work!

  4. Wow, Marsha! Your life is anything but boring. I'm sure I'd never be able to keep up with you. Write on!

  5. We briefly met at Storymaker's Conference in Sandy. Thanks for your words of inspiration and encouragement at the time. It was my very first conference. I have reflected since then how much courage it takes to self-publish. They spurred me onward and helped me attempt writing a short story in a western setting for Christmas last year. If you would like to read the first chapter, you are welcome to go to my blog: I look forward to more of your inspiration.


I welcome your comments.
