Summer Olympics for Writers

If you are like me and millions of other people, you have spent more time than usual watching TV, specifically the Olympics, this past week. 

Like most writers, I people watch and note accents, language, etc. The 2012 London Olympics offers a snapshot into the lives of super athletes. Check out the extreme effort and hopes that are either rewarded or dashed depending on an event's outcome. Some Olympians are at the pinnacle of their career and others may have to try another time. Their faces, expressions, and postures tell it all. All valuable info for a writer to stash away and use when describing winners and losers. Happy watching!


  1. I loved watching the Olympics, from a children author in Concord, Ca.

    1. Very inspiring. Are we connected on FB? I like to network with other children's writers there. My account is What genre of books to do write?
