Top 10: On Hiatus
Time for that cookbook
By  Char Milbrett

nkwell Newswatch is going to restructure and come out with its fists up and ready for a fight. The challenge is on! Bring it!

IN has been a trim, lean, fighting machine, ready to take on any writing topic, offering help to aspiring writers in every location, and giving hope and encouragement to all that seek inspiration. IN has opened its arms to the aspiring writer, inspired and encouraged all writers to achieve higher goals, and has provided the means for that to happen. The new direction will be all of this and more. As great as it can be!

Inkwell Newswatch, I salute you! I will definitely be in the stands cheering you on!  I値l be the noisy one with the four-fingered whistle that you hear over the roar of the crowd! Count on it! When you come back, at the end of your restructuring, I will be ready to help you out with more columns. In fact, I知 looking forward to it! How exciting!

I have enjoyed my first few years with Inkwell Newswatch. I have had an opportunity to write about things that have meaning in my life, and other things that just happen. I have truly enjoyed every minute. I find myself writing emails to myself with things that happen, and these emails are used for creating my columns later. I truly appreciate having had this experience.

During this year, while I wait for the signal to start sending more columns for 2009, I will be enrolled in a course for writers. I took an aptitude test offered by the Institute of Children痴 Literature, and passed with flying colors, so am going to spend some time, completing their curriculum. Who knows, maybe I値l have a children痴 book published by next year. Time will tell for sure. But, even at that, I値l still write for IN. I promise.

Another project that I値l be working on is a published cookbook. The cookbook will be a collection of all my personal recipes that have been perfected or at least the ones that didn't make anyone sick over the past 20 years. I have talked about this cookbook for a few years, and now, this hiatus will give me an opportunity to buckle down and get it accomplished. When I have it somewhat ready, I will offer the opportunity for all my international associates to include their own recipes in my book too.

Onward 2008!

Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer痴 Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we致e known;
Each writer痴 block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It痴 how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don稚 plant your poem on the page
As though you池e hanging drapes;
It痴 shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their 鍍hemes.

Double Vision
A writer痴 life is paradox,
It痴 more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you値l never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem痴 through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
