Blog and video blog – art finds a way.

In both her works of memoir and fiction, Betsy Graziani Fasbinder explores the unending complications of people living, working, and loving one another.

She has been awarded the Floyd Salas Award, a Jack London award and two East of Eden awards for both fiction and memoir pieces.  Four of her pieces have been produced as Readers’ Theater works in the historic Nevada Theater in Nevada City, California.  She is the also co-producer of The Women’s Writing Salon in Nevada County.

Betsy lives in the soft hills of Marin County with her husband, one son on the launch pad, and one out on his own in a neighboring town.  Nestled there among friends in the Bay Area and in the Sierras, she is so busy counting friend and family blessings that it’s hard to find time to write.


What would you write if you were going to write for a solid month? What appeals to you? Even if you don’t want to participate in NaNo, think about something you love, a subject you’re passionate about – write for a few minutes about that.

Damien has a word of the week for Catharine to look up on Google. You’ll have to listen to find out.

Word of The Week:


with Anu Garg





noun: A taking or receiving of rent, profit, etc.


From Anglo-French pernance, by switching of sounds of prenance (taking), from prendre, from Latin prehendere (to seize). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ghend-/ghed- (to seize or to take), which is also the source of pry, prey, spree, reprise, surprise, osprey, prison, reprehend, impregnable, impresa, and prise. Earliest documented use: 1626.


“For he was not to pass away the pernancy of the profits.”
NG Jones; Uses and “Automatic” Resulting Trusts of Freehold;
 The Cambridge Law Journal (UK); Mar 2013.

Tortured Sentences:

Then for some reason the Indians started leaving, what caused this decided to leave this place of paradise. The country has changed so much with the population, the government.
