Blogging from A to Z April Challenge- Letter L

WELCOME, EVERYONE:

 to my second year in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

Since I plan to retire shortly, I thought an alphabetical look back at my paying library career and a look ahead to my crafting and writing career would be a good use of my 26 days in this challenge, 26 wonderful words for retiring me. Hope you enjoy. I am looking forward to reading whatever you share this month on your blogs, too.

LOOKING BACK: 
Lame Duck- (someone who's employment is limited and chooses not to get involved in office politics. [My own definition.]) 
Enough said.

Looking ahead: 
Learning- (the act or process of acquiring knowledge or skill.)
Gail Carson Levine is the author of  Ella Enchanted, a Newbery Honor Winner and many other late childhood/early young adult books. She has written an excellent book entitled Writing Magic, Creating Stories That Fly, where she shares her secrets of great writing. She mentions that she will be "learning to write until she dies."
I like her writing style and will be using her tips as I rumble along with my poems and stories. If I never get anything published, I enjoy the writing process so much that that is reward in itself.
