Stylish blogger Award given this blog

March 8, 2011

Jean Henry Mead presented this blog with the Stylish blogger Award. Thank you, Jean.

She says I'm to list seven (7) things about myself and pass the award on to someone else. I pass it to Aidana WillowRaven's new blog because it is stylish. WillowRaven Illustration & Design Plus

Now seven things about me, hmmm. I don't know if there are seven things to tell. I'm a rather simple, boring person who creates all the mystique for characters in my writing. Yes, I live vicariously through my characters. All right, here goes:

1. I feel I should be at least 40 years younger than I am. Hey, I need to live at least another 30 years to be able to write all the books running around in my head.

2. I have only had one man completely in my life romantically, and he's still here.

3. I have 9 other men of various ages whom I love, too: 2 sons, 5 grandsons, and 2 great-grandsons. Robert doesn't mind sharing me with them, though.

4. When I see or meet someone who makes a bad impression, that person does go into one of my stories as a bad person, maybe not the main antagonist, but still not a nice person.

5. When I hear snippets of dialog I like, I write them down to use in stories or novels.

6. I also put the good qualities I see and the actions of those people in my writing.

7. I hate doing taxes for the business and for myself. I need a bookkeeper.

Hope no one's bored too much.

Aidana, your turn.


Finally, success

Starting over

January 25, 2011
I decided to set up a different personal website. The other one was too complicated to update. Therefore, I began the long process of moving what I want to keep and adding new material.

Aidana designed the banner to go with the site. I like how she incorporated my motto into the heading and banner.

Stay tuned for what's going on with my writing and my books.

About Me

Vivian Zabel I'm the wife of one, since February 18, 1962. Robert may be gone from this life, but he awaits me on the other side. I've had four children, three lived. My children have given me ten grandchildren, five girls and five boys. My two oldest granddaughters provided five great-grandchildren. My family and my faith find their ways into my writing. I've had stories, articles, and poetry published over a period of more than fifty years. I began writing novels after I retired from teaching. Now I'm enjoying retirement. I need to return to teaching in order to rest.
