The Write Stuff is proud to be a media sponsor of the Bay Area Family Literacy Day taking place on November 1st. Family literacy is a critical component to getting your children to read & enjoy reading. Further, your children will discover the vastness of their creativity. Imagine one day you're at home when a large, terrifying tornado comes out of nowhere, whips up your house and your dog, and lands you in a world full of yellow brick roads, munchkins, a cowardly lion, and a tin man without a heart.
What if you found a golden ring with power that could turn you into a dark lord or queen? It mesmerized you, called to you, and haunted you until it consumed your mind. You'd fight hobbits, and creatures of both dark and light, travel mountains, and align yourself with wizards of extraordinary power.
You may recognize the two worlds mentioned but what they have in common is that these tales take us to realms far away from what we know. We are immersed into lands of magic, and mystery. In fact, one of the best things about being a writer is that you can create the world you want. Is it filled with dragons and sorcerers? Do dogs rule the Kingdom? Do the fish and crabs dance under the sea while they save a mermaid from an evil witch with the body of an octopus? Are you the chosen one, given the ability to change the course of two worlds? Can you command a ship with a crew as you head into the unexplored regions of space? Will you step through a gate that takes you to another world as easily as going from one room to the next?
Are you are Realm Explorer?
Join me as we talk with author and teacher Annie Lima Douglass as she takes into the imaginations of authors and the realms they create to fill us with wonder. You can join in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Any way you can, join us.
People are drawn to Alexis from the moment they see her on stage. She draws you in with her uniquely haunting voice and long mermaid’s tresses, then holds you mesmerized with the wit and power of her words. You find yourself singing along, even if you are hearing her for the very first time.
In June 2011, Alexis opened for Nashville singer-songwriter, Rick Ferrell at Shawnee State University. Ferrell, who has written hit songs for Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Martina McBride, has been enormously complimentary of this young woman’s talent and potential.
She has been interviewed twice for Marshall University’s “Up Late Show,” as well as “Up Close and Acoustic” with Charlie Silvestri on Pottstown, PA radio. She played the Huntington Music Festival in August 2011, and made her radio debut in 2010 on Huntington Radio 106.3, to the delight of her growing fan-base, and continues to be one of their frequently played artists.
It the beginning of the Iraq War, I sat mesmerized in front of my television as I watched the bombs blowing up over the city of Baghdad. It was like a television series, and I could only imagine the lost lives in the random explosions. The Bush Administration alled it Shock and Awe, but the U.S. has never implemented such devastation for no reason at all before that. Now as we are being thretened and challenged by ISIS, we are finding that the Pro-Syrian fighters we are planning to train are being swept up and aligned with ISIS. The Congress is still twiddling their thumbs in order to watch as Obama fails.
Stuff Tina Turner, Rage Against The Machine, and Alanis Morrisette into an industrial-grade mixer and crank the sumbitch up to 12. Add a fifth of Hennessey, light up a Newport and watch the roof explode.
Unmeasurable energy. Enormous passion and power. A phenomenal set of pipes. These are the qualities that have attracted collaborators like Big Proof of D12 (who gave Steffanie her nickname Steff Chris), and producer Emanuel (Eman) Kiriakou. They are on display when she opens for artists like Taproot and Thousand Foot Krutch, Erykah Badu, and Talib Kweli. They are the reason shes the secret weapon of jessica Care moores Black Women Rock revues, where she routinely holds her own on stage with rock goddesses like Tamar Kali, Res, Joi, and Dionne Farris.
I can sing anything, but I make rock and roll music, Steffanie says. I already know I don't fit into your mold. I am not here to fit into it. I was born and raised to break it!
On her debut album, Way Too Much, Steffanie Christian gives you more in-your-face, Detroit rock and roll than you can handle. Shell leave you spent, exhausted, and mesmerized, motionless on the floor, begging for one more hit.

About Alison: “I am addicted to crafts, and I always have been says Alison Lee. When I was 3 there was a television show called ‘Fun at One”. I remember the first thing I watched was how to make modeling soap from Ivory Snow Flakes, and water. The host demonstrated how to beat them together with a manual eggbeater and create a modeling clay/soap. You could even add drops of food coloring to the mix for more fun.
Shortly after that my grandmother who emigrated here from Ireland taught me to knit. She sat me down with a ‘proper cup of tea’ at the kitchen table and wound the yarn around here fingers, showing me exactly where the yarn should fall and then let the needles fly. I was mesmerized and to this day am grateful for her passing on to me the love of the craft."? - Thank you, Nannie.

Russia makes a move into Ukraine...
The Islamic State continues its mass killings in the Middle East...
And the Obama administration can't seem to figure out what's going on or what do do about it.
But the administration does seem ready and willing to grant amnesty at home to up to five million illegal aliens.
Ferguson, Missouri is already fading from memory. For now, anyway.
Meanwhile, Americans are both mesmerized and increasingly apprehensive as the domestic stock markets grow ever higher.
We'll hit on these topics, and attempt to connect some dots, Friday at 1:00 o'clock Eastern.
It'll be our last webcast for a while, Don and Doug will be taking off the first couple of Fridays in September.

Greg is also ambitious, and in 2004 decided he would dedicate his life to helping as many people as he could.Bothered by people doing endless situps, time-wasting stretches and other unproductive--and mind-numbing--exercises; motivated by people who discipline themselves to exercise, but are miserable; puzzled by individuals who don't exercise, but want the benefits; mesmerized by those who unexpectedly came to enjoy exercise...his first task would be to help people hate exercise less.
