【PR】システム構築、ソフトウェア開発はイーステムにお任せ下さい


The Writing LifeI'll like to address, first, the name. Like a lot of people here, I have a funky name with some extra letters. TBTEN is a combined acronym made from the first letters of two websites/ web personas. One is my teaching site, the other my personal Blogger blog (who is seen there in the picture showing off its rhododendron post). I didn't have Audio Reflections, an audiopoetry site, up yet when I joined Squidoo. If I did, I might have been KarenTBTAREN.Being online has meant a lot to me. Sometimes, on the Squidoo platform, I am engaged in pragmatic activity; sometimes I am just on my soapbox, and writing for "an audience of one". (I first heard that term in a C.S. Lewis book and have used it several times since.) I intend to be (mostly) pragmatic on the Wizzley site.

I was actually sent over to the platform by several of my Squidoo pages who wanted niche-mates. At the forefront was a page called "Shabby Chic Studio Apartment" who, after a successful first month, had begun writing business plans for herself and others. Armoires and upwards! she said. In the Beginning Were Words...I've been writing for hire for about a year now, so that started after Squidoo. (At the beginning stages, I used Squidoo pages as my portfolio.) I joke about it being a return to my roots. When my brother was seven or eight, he started a book company. I was two years younger, but the job pool was limited, so he hired me. I wrote for him part-time for probably a couple of years.

He told me what to write: "Write about a little boy who falls out of a tree and breaks his arm... Write about a little boy who loves trucks." I was good at following directions, as you can see from the scanned story below about a truck-loving boy.I did like truck drivers -- or one, at least. For a fair chunk of my childhood, I revolved, like a planet in orbit, around a fictitious chimpanzee-toting truck driver known as BJ McKay. I was not interested in trucks per se, though -- that was my brother's forte. The piece below, I feel pretty confident, was a commissioned one.
