IN A WORD. . . .

True story.

I was trying to help a friend who was writing her first novel, a Western. I looked over what she had written and it was excruciatingly boring. I said, “Westerns have some of the most colorful language of all the genres. Why aren't you using more interesting words in your writing?”

Her reply stunned me: “I don't know that many words.”

Why in the world does this person want to be a writer? Writers work with nothing but words! It's our medium, our clay, our…

County Fair Memories

I actually have been working on a book now and then. It seems there are so many things that got in the way of writing in the last few weeks. We live on an acreage that keeps us working with a garden, chickens and livestock. We're in the middle of a terrible drought now so we spend a lot of time watering the garden, trees and flowers. I actually had enough cucumbers to make 15 quarts of dill pickles, a few jars at a time.

Though I have the fifth Amish book in my Nurse Hal Among The…

Do You Have A Habit That Irritates A Loved One? Donald Edward Peters Does!

I have a habit that irritates my wife.

 (Author’s Wife’s Note: It’s not the only one.)

It happens whenever we’re watching TV and one of those Criminal Minds/Law and Order/CSI comes on.  Within the first five minutes, I tell her who the bad guy is.  I’m right about 90 percent of the time.

“How do you know?” she asked me one…
