July 2011 Speaker: Linda Kozar

Fifty Ways to Say Yellow
Writers tend to use the same old, same old words instead of finding more creative ways of describing worlds real or imagined. "Fifty Ways To Say Yellow" utilizes The Synonym Finder in a lesson and practical creative writing exercise designed to expand a writer's word universe.  Join Linda Kozar as she leads us through Fifty Ways to Say Yellow and much more on Saturday, July 9th at 11:00am.

Linda Kozar is the co-author of Babes With A Beatitude—Devotions For Smart, Savvy Women of Faith (Howard/Simon & Schuster) and author of Misfortune Cookies (2008), Just Desserts (2011) (Barbour Publishing). She received the ACFW Mentor of the Year Award in 2007, and four previous writing awards, is founder/president of Writers On The Storm, a local ACFW chapter. In 2003, she co-founded, co-directed and later served as Southwest Texas Director of Words For The Journey Christian Writers Guild. She and her husband Michael, married 22 years, have two lovely daughters, Katie and Lauren and a Rat Terrier princess named Patches.

DFW Ready Writers meets the second Saturday of every month.  Visitors welcome!  We are a local chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers. Visit ACFW's website to learn more at www.acfw.com.

I admire writers who are creative and imaginative. They have this way of creating stories, describing the real world and making the story such realistic that the readers loved to read.

Yellow is closely associated with the word "caution" isn't it? Can we use the word "caution/cautious" to describe someone who wears yellow or uses yellow for something? Also, I think the Italian word for yellow is "giallo" . Anyway that was just an input I wanted to say :P
