Burrow, Books and Balderdash

I am part of a wonderfully supportive group of writers known as The Burrow.  I never considered being writer.  Some negative and irrational beliefs hindered me for many years to come.

However, the Cafe Steinbeck nurtured what they deemed to be the beginnings of an author.  I am so grateful to Serafina Graham, Jason Drake and Rayna Iyer for believing in me.  I want to also thank Cruella Collett, Leanne Rabessa, Hart Johnson and last but not least Tara Smith.  You have all helped through the ups, the downs and the in-betweens.

Come check us out.  You won't be disappointed.

drabble- n. a story told in exactly 100 words.


  1. Chary, you were a writer before you even stepped into Cafe Steinbeck. That piece about the waterpipes on the streets of Bronx is one I will never forget.

    If we did anything at all, we helped you in not forgetting who you were meant to me.

  2. ok, a story in 100 words of less...hmmm. I too, am “new writer”. I enjoy it, but its hard for me to say I’m a writer just as it is hard for me to say I am a musician.
    I am going to become a follower just to see what is going on around here..

  3. Very nice drabble, Chary! I think I am going to take up drabbles on Sunday... it is nice discipline, even aside from our projects!

  4. Awww, Rayna, thanks so much. It's wonderful to know that I have friends to support me an d create such a nurturing place for my expressive creativity. I can truly be free with you ladies!

  5. Hi Beatnheart,

    Yes a drabble is told in exactly 100 words. I would be interested to see your writing. I had difficulty calling myself a writer since I am not really published. However, most of us are writers of one kind or another.

    Thanks for following.

  6. Hart, thank you. It is a nice discipline. I'm doing it to keep in the habit of writing. I found that I was really slacking and almost had to force myself to write some days. But now, it's so weird. The words are writing themselves (like two wonderfully talented women once told me).

    *winks at Natasha and Sera*
