New Web Site

Since I changed my internet service provider (upgraded to fast, cable-based internet instead of dial-up!), I had to move my Web site. I've often wondered why I have a Web site in the first place. I'm not a published author as far as novel-length fiction goes, but I do want to establish a presence with my nonfiction history articles, so decided to go ahead and keep it. With this new "upgrade", I figured I'd simplify things. The result is here: Official Web Site of Melissa A. Marsh.

Nothing fancy, and it was all done using Earthlink's free software, etc. But I hope to add a few features in the future, specifically focusing on World War II. And I'd also like to have a series of articles that go deeper into the writing craft.

One particular feature that I wasn't really planning on (but had the inspiration for last night) is my Writing Challenge. I found some great copyright-free photos from the online FDR library and wanted to post them, but I felt I needed something a little more. So, if you're ever in the mood to write a story set in World War II, take a look at the pictures and see if they spark your muse. I'm willing to post the stories on my Web site or blog (but I reserve the right not to post them if they're inflammatory, etc., etc., etc.).

While working out last night, I had a brilliant idea for a particular snag in my novel and couldn't wait to go home nad work on it. Unfortunately, this also made me work out a bit harder than normal and I came home sore. Ah well. The things we sacrifice for our art. ;-)


  1. Melissa, beautiful new web site! I really enjoyed it, especially the WWII pics. You rock!
