Frankie K. Foster
May I have a drum roll please? The January/February comment contest winner is Frankie K. Foster! Congratulations, Frankie! Frankie gets a free one day class at Writing Pad.
We asked Frankie a couple of questions about her writing process:
Where is your favorite place to write?
My favorite place to write is in the local library. It keeps me away from family obligations and distractions to focus. I love the peace and quiet I find in the library. I also journal everyday.
What inspires you to write? 
80’s music mostly. My memoir takes place during the 80’s, so I’m using my favorite songs to evoke my past feelings and experiences in order to write.
And here’s a little about Frankie: Frankie retired from IBM/New York Wall Street before she was 30 and ended up traveling cross country to Los Angeles to pursue her dream job in animation. She helped launch an animation website (AWN.com) and was a journalist and marketing director for Animation Magazine. She is currently researching and writing a memoir.
You can read Frankie’s wonderful piece about her favorite winter activity here.

We hope to see your stories in the comment section of this blog soon.
