Beyond entrepreneur…

She’s mom of four successful adults, and grandma to seven beautiful grandbabies. On coffee chats, don’t be surprised to hear a grandbaby in the background – she adores them, and often works with them playing nearby.

If you ask what her hobbies are, she’s likely to tell you “writing” or “work.” Because she loves what she does. But she likes to travel too. Her favorite jaunts often include rainy afternoons, driving through the mountains, looking through the trees at the rivers, streams, or other mountain features. Have you ever driving through the pines so thick if you listen it sounds like rushing water, and there isn’t a stream anywhere close enough to hear? That’s her favorite moment.

Her favorite song: Whispering Pines.

Words. Although some may believe they are a necessary evil, are Jan’s friend. Jan adores the sounds, the way they roll off the fingers onto the page, and the element of surprise when they come together with new and valuable meaning. She espouses the contentious belief that words have meanings, and attempts to portend those meanings to the world.

“Have you ever picked up a book and immediately felt like you were part of the story? I read a lot, and if I’m not into the story within the first two or three pages, I won’t read that book.” Jan reveals in an audience of writers.

There’s a clear line of connection between active voice and passive writing. Those who push their reader away by injecting space between the words and the reader, can’t bring the reader back. Functional writing is active. When Jan shares writing concepts, rather than tell them, she shows the reader.

A Fortuitous Moment

Clouds drift across a clear blue sky. The sun hides. Thunder rolls. Rain drops splash across the earth, drenching my world. In some minds, this brings sadness. In mine, the rain brings a fortuitous moment of relief. I crave the rain, I live in the clouds. I experience the power of fragmented energy.
