Around the Web

Call me giddy with excitement, but I just found a terrific new website for research. It's called The Homefront: World War II-Era Beauty and Fashion. This gal has scanned in tons of advertisements for soap, shoes, make-up, etc., and has also scanned in period magazine articles on women at war, beauty, fashion, and other great topics.

The site is a labor of love, and it shows. I know I can spend many happy hours rummaging through it - and it will remain at the top of my research links!

Another great site I've found that has really got me thinking about my writing and creativity is Jurgen Wolff's site, Time to Write. He has some offbeat tips for getting your creativity into full swing, and he's also just come out with a book called Your Writing Coach that may just be what you need to get your novel done.

I'm also very interested in Jurgen's new website, The Power of Targeted Thinking. I know I sure could use some focus in my life on a lot of things - weight loss, diet, exercise, parenting, marriage, and of course, writing.


  1. Hi, Melissa,
    thanks for the plug for the site and the book, I hope you find it useful.

    best wishes from London,


  2. But please don't forget what the Internet is truly for....googling pictures of Daniel Craig.

  3. Isn't it great to find something SO useful out on the net??? Glad you tracked down a site of so much use to you :)


I love to hear from you!
