-Carolyn Howard-Johnson

Latest Challenge Details:

1. Write or choose one or however many fiction pieces

2. Talk about it on a video using an outline based on the Question/Answer session on the video. I loved her “quick        tips”! She’s really good! Watch her in the Video Below or on her website here

♥ Carolyn’s Quick tips: “1) learn all you can  2) speak or teach to develop your speaking skills”

3. Practice using Youtube, Instagram, or Vine, and I could opt to share those on this post, so bookmark and                    follow along here if you would like to also post practices here or offer feedback

4. Post the final video on this post on August 25, 2013 during Interact with Me

Note: Pressed this article on Rejection from Rachel Stanford’s neat blog that I found today 8/17/13 might be nice to revisit later
