Welcome – Blog #1

JoAnne PIc1 web

WELCOME to my blog, everyone!

I’ve taken the dive into the world of blogging and the water’s fine. The first step is always the hardest, and I’m glad I  jumped in. Ya just gotta jump!

Let’s hang out together and make this a happy, comfy habit.

I’m a writer and a singer, and an actress. But I will be focusing on writing and singing in this blog, two creative expressions that I just can’t get enough of after doing it for forty years.

I want to share with you my thoughts, stories, ideas, experiences, resources and people and things that inspire me and that you will hopefully find inspiring, will feed your soul, stimulate some new thoughts, energize your dreams or bring forward those dreams simmering on back burners.

I want you to enjoy. To have fun. I know I will.

I’ll be blogging about once a week or so. Let me know “it’s okay to email me your blog posts, Jo Anne”, by clicking on the Contact menu button above and leave your message. Thanks!

A little writing background:

I self-published my first book DREAMS FOR SALE: Poems and Lyrics in 2009 and recently finished my second book, a memoir titled HOMETOWN BEAUTY QUEEN. I was the hometown beauty queen for Inglewood, California in 1968, the year the world was turning on it’s ear. When I realized how much this experience shaped my life, I decided to write about it to help me try and make sense of it all. My goal is to get HBQ traditionally published.

Stay tuned. Much more coming about writing, singing as the world turns and fun stuff yet to be revealed. I will do my best to make it worth your while.

Until we meet again, be good to yourselves and remember, hug a llama. They need love, too. Oh, Jo Anne.
