Sappho Eurygyus

After being resurrected from the dead with a bit of the muse Sappho entering my body ay the age of 35 I switched from technical and proposal writing to fiction/non=fiction and creative writing. I am currently working on two novels that could not be more different - each with the inspiration of Sappho as my guide. One is fiction and one is inspired by a non-fictional account of a period in my life that is ripe for the picking. I had the idea to hone my writing skills by starting a blog a making myself write on at least a 4 day a week basis but I end up writing at least 5 or 6 days a week and sometimes every day. It is a great exercise in discipline but as a perfectionist, i have had to teach myself code and do everything myself, making the process of writing and posting much longer than just an hour or so, Once I get more into the groove of doing everything with ease, I will better manage m time to work on all projects I have going. I also write erotica short stories, heavy on the story, and am looking to compile them into a book for submission once I have enough put together. I share some of them with my blog audience every month or so as an added bonus to staying tuned to my rants and raves about this or that. I have done no publicity yet except through friends and have built a small following I am proud of. Check me out at www.sapphospeaks.com.

Sappho Speaks: Best New Blog - The Fix Is In!

What Would Sappho Say? Lectori Salutem! or L.S. (Greetings to the Reader!) First. let me just say up front I AM INDEED, a SORE LOSER when the odds don't seem to have been even going in at the Lezzy Awards over at The Lesbian Lifestyle from the get go. I had no huge expectation going in as the winner in the Best New Blog category since I launched at the end of November 2009 giving me hardly three months to collect a following. I have to say it was a shock that I made it into the final three. Once there, however, I came to believe my competition would be other singular blogs as the word in the award is BLOG and that some voters might actually review each if they were not familiar with them before making their pick....more

Sappho Speaks: Alice, You’ve Really Stepped In It Now!!!

What Would Sappho Say? Lectori Salutem! or L.S. (Greetings to the Reader!) With the Royal premiere of Alice in Wonderland this past week I thought I’d bring her into the mix for what I’m sure will bring some jeers from the peanut gallery. And as Alice blindly and without much forethought ran down the rabbit hole into Wonderland (or was it?) so do children born of their parents follow them into the family’s religious fold. It is a predestined plan, one the child has no control over and once indoctrinated will fight to the death for those beliefs as strongly as their parents before them. Religion is really a geography problem easily solved with money when you get right down to it....more

Sappho Speaks: Liberals, Labeling and How Much We Lose

What Would Sappho Say? Lectori Salutem! or L.S. (Greetings to the Reader!) I know we were all taught as children not to call each other names and we know how much racism hurts us as a culture (or at least I hope those reading this blog do) but there as so many more ways we use labels in our lives that shut us off from groups, from information, and from individuals and if you are anything like me, it takes someone pointing it out every now and then for a real wake up call to happen in your life so change can begin to rebuild your way of interacting in the world....more
