Calling All Women Writers!


2013 is a great time for women writers. It’s going to be a monumental year for us to step up, step out and shine our light for the world to wake up and take notice! What an intro:) Well, I’m just so excited to share this latest writing opportunity for women (sooo many avenues for creatives out there) The Mirror Monologues have a call out for women writers 16 and over to create Dramatic Monologues about the mirrors in their lives. Submit your story about what you really see when you look in the mirror. Sorry guys, this one’s for the ladies:)

These plays are the brainchild of four women Playwrights over 50 who met and began to brainstorm their playwright threatric abilities ( all have written & produced plays) and who have sent the call for women to take part in their latest Dramatic works. “man look at themselves in mirrors while women look ‘for’ themselves…feeling your creative juices yet?!

So, to participate in The Mirror Monologues, go to http://www.themirrormonologues.com/about-us/.. where you can also learn more about the women playwrights-the wheels are turning!

Well, I’m supposedly working on my book for 2013- not so much. I’ve been writing articles for magazines and other projects to sustain a retirement income. I know, excuses…but, someday, the work in progress will become reality for myself, my contributors and clara54’s wonderful readers. To stave off your disappoinment, I’m hoping you read my latest articles for Bronze Magazine and Women In Business 101 Magazine.



When you find yourself stuck in one area of your work, move on to the next thing. I promise you, you’ll continue to hone your talents and people will take notice…and that project will breathe a silent air of ‘thanks.’ “I’ll be waiting writer woman when the time is right.”

What about you guys, will 2013 be your time to shine?

Welcome To My World!

Hey all! I’m Clara and I’m a woman in transition. What you’re about to let yourself in for is going to become one heck of a ride, views from the perspective of one woman writer whose sole intent is to encourage, inspire and impassion women of a certain age to go for the gusto in this, the 2nd phase of life! I’m also going to digress a bit at times and speak on entertainment, politics and just everyday stuff from time to time, why? just because I can!

I’m a writer. A seasoned, professional nurse. A self-published poet. An online columnist. A divorced mother of two and grandmother of 5… I love men of substance, eloquence, wit, compassion and a strength clothed in spirituality. I decided several years ago after my divorce and a traumatic ending to love on the rebound, that it was time I found my ‘destiny’…Think, Forest Gump when he asks, “Mama, what’s my destiny?” She replies, ” Forest,Life is like a box of chocolates. You NEVER know what you gonna get.” I invite you along, as we discover what we’re gonna get!

Happy Sunday All! It’s also my 4th year  @ Clara54!!!!!!!!!!. This was where it all began:) Sending out heartfelt appreciations for all you’ve given via your comments, emails, twitter follows and just some darn good blogosphere community:) Sonya,  my Washington bud,you’ve been the best of the best!

Shine On!
