INFORMATION
Kelly Olsen has had a love of writing and the English language - as complicated as it is - from an early age. Kelly and her husband recently closed their funeral service business and a gift store, and she is currently concentrating full-time on her writing. Making her home in Springbrook, Alberta, Kelly's life is full of inspiration, thanks to the love of her life and her three great kids. 2014 was a year of travel, having made five trips to Florida and one trip to a sailboat show in Annapolis, MD. 2015 is going to be a year of serious work. With many writing projects started, Kelly is committed to getting her first book published this year. She appreciates the time and effort put into reading and making honest comments on her efforts.
FAVORITE QUOTE
Asking for a favorite quote is like asking me to choose my favorite child...I love any quote that evokes emotion and gets me thinking.

kellyolsen: So, I'm back with a vengeance. I've been reviewing non-stop, and writing now and then. I'm thoroughly enjoying my membership this time round. My husband isn't as appreciative...my housework is suddenly lacking, but I'm so glad to be back.

kellyolsen: Well, it finally feels like the fog that has been clouding my mind since my mother's death on Christmas Day is starting to lift. I just re-read my portfolio and the reviews, and it has motivated me to get back to writing again.

kellyolsen: For those who follow me, I'd just like to mention that I'm not forgetting about FanStory. My mother has been recently diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer and I've been spending as much time with her at the hospital. One day soon, unfortunately, I'll have all the time I need to get back to writing...until then, I'm helping my mother as she slowly (metaphorically) pens the final chapter of her life story.

kellyolsen: I'm starting to get to the point where I take my writing to the next level. I've spent months studying/researching the industry, genres, publishers, agents. I've licked the tip of my pen; time to get down and dirty.

    Jetco: Mrs Olsen.
    It is sad fact I do not know a past tense from a present tense from a future tense. My english teacher in high school will testify to that and that was 100 years ago. No amount of books or hypnotism will correct it.
    I probably will be dependent on editors for life.
    Regards,
    Jetco ( Jim )

    Jetco: my favorite quote is from Mark Twain ' choosing a good word that is adequate and a word that is just right is like the difference between a firefly and a lightening bolt.' a paraphrase since my memory of Twain's quotes are faulty.

    kellyolsen: That's all right, Jetco. As much of a stickler I am for spelling, punctuation and grammar, I still make mistakes (many); I love it when someone picks up something in my writing that I keep missing. Keep writing, Jim; like you said - that's what editors are for.
