The Stories I Tell ~ from The Word Cellar

Stories. Anecdotes. A free round of words for everyone!

I love stories. I'm the one at social functions with a dozen new anecdotes. But I worry about hogging the conversation. Sometimes I tell myself that I'll be quiet and let others do the talking. But no matter how hard I try, my stories insist on bursting out! Here I can let my stories (the classics that I tell again and again, as well as new ones that unfold along the way) run free. I'm a professional writer and editor, and sole proprietor of The Word Cellar. I write for a variety of publications and clients on everything from green buildings and nuclear reactors to entrepreneurship and the arts. If you need words written, edited, or enlivened, I can help. Contact me.

The Cost of War


Today on my front doorstep...

Kids: Trick or Treat!

Me: Happy Halloween! Okay, let's see... are you Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz? And you're death, or the grim reaper. And what about you? Tell me who you are.

Girl in an interesting mélange of camouflage and glitter: I'm an Army Diva!

Me: Wow. You're the first Army Diva I've seen.

Army Diva: There's another one, too.

Dropped in via the Randomizer, and I've just got to say that I really cannot imagine an Army Diva...
