Karen Wiesner’s Karen’s Quill Newsletter

On the Alien Romance’s Blog, I’m doing a new, 5-part article called “Reflections of Life”. In looking back over the course of my life as an author who's looking forward to becoming an artist in retirement, I've learned to slow down and reflect on the past, savor the present, and look forward to the future. Interspersed through these ruminations each Friday, I'll include some of my own most apropos sketches. I encourage everyone, not just those interested in writing (or aliens!), to read this.

In "Details of Life", I discuss changing your perspective from the negative to the positive when writing an obituary for yourself or for a loved one who's still alive on the Alien Romances Blog:
In case you missed the previous two-part article, "Taking the Bucket Out of the Bucket List", where I discuss the wisdom and benefits of, and strategies for, drawing up a personal bucket list as early as possible--long before the curtain of a life is drawn, you can find it here:
