Writing in the Modern Age 2019 Year in Review:
Big Reflections – Past and Present
Hi, everyone! A year I imagined would crawl right by, in fact, did
not. Instead it flew so fast, I suffered vertigo several times. 😉
Tomorrow we’ll adjust our calendars to reflect that life has
changed in a blink, welcoming 2020. For this year’s annual review
post, I’d like to commemorate the evolution of Writing in the
Modern Age. Six years ago, I opened the blog to guest authors and
it’s been a wild ride ever since. WritModAge grew from the initial
seed of a place to help other writers at any stage of their careers, all
the way to not just that, but also a site where readers can
comfortably discover their new, favorite authors! Through author and
character interviews, book and writing service interviews, guest
articles, book spotlights and mega giveaways, it has become a unique
resource for writers and readers alike.
So…give a warm round of applause to all 350 content writers and
authors who visited us via various events from 2013 to 2019.
However, there were 104 guest writers this year alone. That’s

How Shopping Correlates with Dating and Relationships: a romance blogger post by multi-genre author Marie Lavender
Not about books, but you can see how I funnel romance into my writing…
How Shopping Correlates with Dating and Relationships
I love, love, love shopping…well, for almost anything! I can never be trusted with a credit card. 😉 Most of the time I resist temptation, but now and then, especially if I have some extra money on my hands, I indulge in one of my hobbies – shopping for clothes, or even books.

But whether you’re browsing online or in the store, shopping for clothing items is a whole other animal. At least with a book, you can be sure you will usually end up a satisfied reader. The only issue, for me at least, might be a bunch of glaring grammatical errors, or so much head-hopping that I get fictional whiplash.

Shopping for clothes, however, is a different story.

Book Lovers Tag
I talk about my reading preferences on the I Love Romance Blog…
Here’s a fun post for all. This is a Book Lovers Tag challenge. I came across this great tag over at D.G. Kaye Writer’s blog, where she invited anyone to join in. I thought it would be exciting to jump into the challenge, as besides being an author, I love reading romance novels (hence the blog’s namesake)! So, why not?
Do you have a specific place for reading?
Mostly, I read in bed, but now and then I cart one of my books to the living room or dining room and set up shop. And if I’m feeling really adventurous (this helps if we have pleasant weather, which is never a guarantee in Indiana), then I’ll sit outside on the patio and read to my heart’s content. 😉 Now and then, I actually read on the Kindle app on my tablet, but I’m more of a paperback/hardback kind of girl. The…

Benefits of Being a Bibliophile
To my fellow book lovers…
There are many benefits to being a book lover. Maybe we have an unhealthy compulsion to buy books. Maybe we have no surface space not claimed by random literary treasures. We may regularly suffer from book hangovers, but by gollie we:
Prefer simple pleasures Never go to bed lonely
Get excited easily Have better vocabulary 😉
Never get bored Travel to distant lands
Never stop learning Have less stress
Improve memory …

“The Cat Came Back”
I had to share this incredibly inspiring story! And I love kitties so…
Greetings and meows, dear peeps and pets!
Maisie here, guest hosting on Jennifer’s blog today.
I thought it was high time I shared a little “cat tale” with you from five years back.
It was the Fall of 2010 and my sister Vivian and I, both three years old, had recently moved around the bay to Newtown with Jennifer and Paul. Up until then, we’d been raised as indoor city cats who rarely went outside unless it was in the backyard under vigilant watch by our owners.
While our soon-to-be permanent home on Perry’s Point was undergoing restoration and renovations, our little family had to bide our time in Mike Perry’s summer-house over near Barbour Tickle. As the weeks passed and our owners grew eager and impatient to move to the Point, they told us that once we got there, we would have the freedom to…

“Blessed” – a poem
A new love poem!
It’s beyond words what I feel for you,
but I always try to capture it.
I can only say I feel…
The way you draw me close,
holding me tight,
I’ve never felt so safe with anyone else.
I can only feel…
The way you speak those words,
professing your love,
saying you’ll always take care of me,
I can only feel…
blessed to have you.
Looking into your eyes,
a fascinating mix of brown and green,
the way you kiss me and my eyes drift closed,
I can only feel…
When you smile at me or give me that gaze full of affection,
the way we work so well together,
even when we link hands and they fit so perfectly,
I can only feel…
blessed beyond measure.
our souls connect,
our bodies were made for each other.
I can only feel…
