Contribute to MANA's Blog Continuous Short Story And Help The Alzheimer's Foundation of America

MANA has a new Continuous Short Story on its blog for 2015 that's ready for you to add your comments. 

Our 2014 short story project met with success, with over 900 views and over 200 comments. A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who participated. As a result,  MANA donated funds  to its charity of 2014: The Women Veterans Project sponsored by Swords to Plowshares, a community-based, not-for profit veteran service organization. 

This year, we asked you to choose MANA's charity of the year, and we are pleased that the 
Alzheimer's Foundation of America was submitted and selected. The Alzheimer's Foundation of America provides care and services to individuals confronting dementia and to their caregivers and families. 

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America consists of more than 1,900 member organizations that meet the educational, social, emotional and practical needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, their caregivers and families. To find out more about the organization, click HERE

This is how the Continuous Short Story on our blog works: 

1. The first person to post should use the photo in this blog post as a prompt. You can write five sentences or more. 

2. The next writer should add to the story of the first post. After that, every writer should add to the story of the previous writer.

3. For every 20 posts of five sentences or more, MANA will donate $10 to The Alzheimer's Foundation of America.

The Glen: A Love Story by Marie Coté Sherhart
If you're in the mood for mystery, myth and romance, then you'll want to read The Glen, A Love Story. The main character, Devon Fournier, is a successful fiction writer who lives in the woods in the Adirondacks with her pets. Devon is forced to face her past as she recovers from the death of her lover, Ron. Devon, however,  is being stalked by Maria Winter, a member of the Tribal Council. But why? While Maria's stalking Devon, the wealthy Richard Diamond walks into Maria's life. Does this mean the beginning of a new relationship for Maria? or is something else about to happen? The intrigue builds as more characters are introduced and become intertwined in each other's lives. According to the author, all the characters involved weave the web of intrigue, drifting in and out of each other's lives, like a deadly arachnid, spewing its venom and leaving in its wake-shattered hearts and lives.

April in Oslo by John Slade
Set in Norway, this love story follows eight musicians from early morning on the first Saturday in April to the symphony concert which they perform that evening n the Oslo Concert House. They live very different lives, and confront a range of challenges through the day, but each musician is directed toward that special moment in the evening when, together, they will enter the musical world which they deeply love.

This is the most extensive books for cooks and for those who say they don't' cook but secretly wish they knew how to do so. This "mother of all cook books" gives information to make sure every cook can live to appreciate and enjoy every meal and, most importunely, experience the joy of life!
