October 16 – Dictionary Day
In 1758, Noah Webster was born. Even though the Father of the American Dictionary took 27 years to finish writing the book, it is constantly changing as new words are developed and other words become extinct.

Hi, I’m Becky. (Ok, Rebecca, but I am rarely addressed that way.) I am a writer and a musician with a tendency to enjoy a variety of crafting opportunities. I retired from teaching in 2014 after spending most of my 34 year career teaching in the high school English department: various levels of English (mostly literature and writing), creative writing, public speaking, and theater (acting, directing, and technical theater). As a teacher, I held the philosophy that I wouldn’t give any writing assignment that I personally wouldn’t or couldn’t do. That philosophy strengthened and broadened my own writing.
