An Index to the First LitChatte Blogs Ever, Written January 19 through February 28, 2016

I introduced the Blog less than weeks ago and have posted stories and essays on poetry, my poetry workshop at the Lifelong Learning Institute, music (Tony Bennett), Emily Dickinson, Drones, Edgar Allan Poe, French classes, My Blog as an Organic, Free-Range Entity, and my personal reflections. If You have any ideas about future blogs that I should write about, or would like me to consider including a Poem or piece of Flash Fiction that you wrote (or you like) in my LitChatte. Com Blog, please send them to me at in a Copy-Ready M.S. Word Document. I am so appreciative of the new supporters of my Blog,  Especially to KristenWrites @KristenTowe on Twitter.
