Moving on

After seventeen years as a Cape Cod Times columnist, I’ve decided to step away from the weekly routine of deadline writing.  It’s been a good run and I’ve enjoyed having the latitude to write on just about any topic of my choice. I’ve been lucky.  The only requirement given to me by the Times was to be concise and accurate.  Along the way, I’ve met and corresponded with a number of people–some who agreed with me and some that did not.  It’s all part of being someone who is willing to publicly take a position on an issue.  I never minded the criticism because it often made me take a closer look at where I stood.  I took it as a means of growth. As for the friends I’ve made among readers, I will miss them.  I’ve got some adventures in mind and a few dreams still unfulfilled.  Beginning tomorrow, the next phase will begin. I don’t plan to sit in a rocking chair and as I travel and move in new directions, I’ll use this blog to let you know what I’m doing.  Thanks for being out there!!Winter storm 2015 007

Children’s Writing Program

On Tuesday, February 16, 2016, Jim Coogan and Dean Coe will be offering a children’s writing workshop at the Sandwich Public Library from 10:00 a.m. to noon.  Young writers will explore weaving characters into plots and illustrating their stories.  A professional artist will assist the two authors in helping the children to write a short story with pictures.  The workshop is currently fully subscribed but there will be a second one on Tuesday, March 1st.  Contact the Sandwich Library to sign up.   Dean Coe is the author of the popular Chesterton the weasel series.  Jim Coogan is the author of Clarence the Cranberry who Couldn’t Bounce and Cecelia the Seal Gets a Meal.
