  1. I am enjoying your musings”very much Gwynn! I am so impressed at your writing and rich life. You believe in yourself. Yes! You are perfect person to find mentors for young people. High quality guidance and encouragement can make or break a child IMHO. what a worthy pursuit. Now. Where oh where is that sophomore social studies paper on the decline of America!! What a treasure it must be. Was that Mr. Stannard? Were you In Honors English, and did you know Shelley Bigelow?

    GREAT idea to post your blog link on Facebook for those of us who need all the help we can get

      Somehow your reply snuck in on my blog and it didn’t tell me. Sorry for the late response. As for finding mentors, because of the economy most of the mentoring programs have gone POOF… sadly. So I’m struggling to find some new mischief to get into! As to that sophomore social studies paper, I had good old Mr. Douthwright! Remember him? Now, I nearly fell over laughing… ME in Honors English????? NOOOOOOO, I don’t think so!! I’m a slow bloomer!!! 😉

      Thank you for your kind comments about my writing. It helps being invisible. Plus, I’m in a couple of writing groups and I learn from others.

    What a great post! I am glad that the tree did not cause any major problems and led to a good friendship. There is something good in everything!

      Hi Solveig, It is lovely to see you here. That tree was scary and I’m so glad no one was hurt. It is strange introducing one’s self to your neighbors and asking to remove your tree from their roof. The best part is that due to the structural damage taking place in their roof, before the tree hit, the insurance company got to pay for it. I have been friends with them for about 38 years now.

    Excellent essay, Gwynn! I can say from personal experience: you are a natural caregiver. One of the best! You took me right in and what DIDN’T you do to help me out? You were my foster mom. I think you do that with everyone! And you NEVER ask for anything in return, except that people do well.

    You are one of the strongest, most compassionate, empathetic, nurturing people I’ve EVER known! It’s not in your blood: it IS your blood! I’m really surprised you weren’t a doctor or nurse or someone who ran/runs a shelter for abused or wayward people and-or animals. Sometimes such a life has its little rewards. Here I am 22 years later singing your praises to the heavens and thanking you for all you did for me from the bottom of my heart! Hell, I’m upset I can’t get up there to help you move!!

    You’re doing great, Gwynn! No one cares more or better than you! Please keep blazing that ever-growing trail of aided, helped, saved, and eternally grateful people!

      Nathan, you are such a wonderful young man. I enjoyed having you around the house. I think you helped us all at the same time. The funny part is that my Numerology all dictates that I AM a caregiver. I guess I was born that way. I LOVE helping people who I care about… you were fun to have around. I truly missed you when you signed up for the Air Force.

      Now you are grown and a caregiver for your father. You and I know how hard this job is and I take my hat off to you. You are doing a ‘stand-up’ job of keeping your father well. Remember to take care of yourself too, as you have one HECK of a job to handle. I’m sending you HUGS!

    During my childhood it was so delighted that my mom was nursing me as a to lead a good human being. She always thought a lesson that to be a honest and thought a lesson that never attempt to such a things that occur bad things.

RECOMMENDATIONS  – GWYNN ROGERS, Proofreader/Editor

  • Donna Lee Anderson , Author, Teacher, Columnist

If you want to shine when you submit your manuscript (either to a contest or an agent or publisher), then a professional editor/proof reader is your first stop before you send it off.

Gwynn Rogers not only looks at punctuation but at story line, punctuation, and she will help with formatting: Is this piece in the requested font and line spacing and type size?

Her prices are reasonable, she is timely when getting back to the author, and she will work with any author that needs help understanding the publishing procedure. She has done work for me and is now my editor/proof reader of choice.

  • Raleigh Minard, Author

I have utilized Gwynn in my novel, “Paladin the Modern Knight.” Gwynn was very timely in editing my book, and she taught me a lot about writing. When I get ready, I will utilize her talents again.  

  • James Lloyd Dunn….A Tree by the River.   

I thoroughly appreciated your editing and input regarding my novel, “A Tree by the River.” It helped it to become the successful novel that it is. Thanks again for your help.

As writer of Short Stories, Movies, or a One-Man Stage Play, I have called on Gwynn’s creative skills, many times, for the past two years. Whether it’s as a Proof Reader, Editor, a Creative Consultant; she is the best for any task that I need from her.  My writing subjects may be Science Fiction, Short Stories, Biographies, or a Novel. To date she has been eager for any conceptual assignment I have requested from her!

    Immensely grateful for your insight and support—you are an enormous impetus to me–encouragement to face my limitations, real or imagined.

    After hitting and missing you on FB, I finally decided to Follow your blog, Gwynn. Thanks for having me here. I hope your husband is on the other side of his health challenge and look forward to reading your blogs!

      Hi Mary Jo, I have been without a computer for over a week. Plus, as you may have noticed I have been remiss in posting as I have a great deal on my plate at the moment. I will attempt to keep up with the 2016 A to Z Blogger’s Challenge. My theme will be caregiving. However, we may be moving in April too so heaven’s knows whether I will finish the Challenge this year. I do have my fingers crossed.

      I DO enjoy reading your notes, but I haven’t seen too many lately. Thanks for connecting with me! I look forward to further chats with you.

    Okay, kiddo—I don’t know how to reach you any other way, so I’m leaving a message here: I prayed for you the day of your surgery and have held you in my prayers since. Let me know how you’re doing, okay? You have my email address in your form.

    • Avatar Gwynn Rogers says:

      Oh Hi Linda! Sorry for taking so long to check my blog. I am surprised that you don’t have my email on your blog. I’ll see if I can respond to you via email. Thanks for your prayers… I’m doing SUPER!!

    • Avatar Gwynn Rogers says:

      Oh goodness, Linda, Thank You for your prayers. I am doing amazingly well! Sorry that I didn’t respond sooner. I’ll email you. Gwynn
