Writing Clips
Debbie Fox
"Cake Anyone?" was printed in Lipstik, a bimonthly women's
newspaper.  The humor piece was rejected by one women's
magazine because it made the editor squeamish.
"Those Annoying Driver-Walkers" was published in the Canadian
magazine,
The Fellowship Link, Summer 2004, as a short humor
piece.
Now What? reprinted "Surviving Mother's Day" in May 2006.  
Sasee, an entertaining women's lifestyle magazine in Myrtle
Beach, South Carolina, published the humor piece
"Blind, Deaf,
but Happily Married" in their October/November 2004 issue.  A
quote from Coleridge triggers a couple’s debate about the word
“nag” and the nagging behavior within their relationship.  
Making a Stand” describes a deer stand invention by a local man for
MVP Outdoors in 2008.
“A New Season” compares a disintegrating marriage to a
losing basketball team, published in
Sasee, January 2008.

Writing memoir, I tend to see the humor in life's challenges.  But reality is often
harsh, so the writing must reflect a more serious flavor.  Whatever your taste, I hope
you enjoy a sampling of my personal essays.
