Northeast Elementary
Lisa Rawlings Class
    In the mid-seventies, I joined an amazing group of musicians and friends and we formed
    a band called The Magnatones. With the awesome talent of Joey Ethridge, Philip Whaley,
    Leon Williams, and Lamar McKenzie, and with Terry Rush in the studio, mixing and
    recording, The Magnatones couldn't miss.  Ah, youth. Ain't it grand? But with children,
    PTA meetings, homeroom parties, cub scouts, and brownies, and, well, need I say
    more? Life veered onto another course.

    I became a single parent with three children and the day-to-day routines of work,
    school, home, and the joys and hardships that accompany them.  I met my wonderful
    husband, Tim, and with him I gained a beautiful daughter, making my life filled with four
    awesome children. It was my husband's encouragement that prodded me to return the
    desires of my past.

    In 1999, I started a serious journey as a writer, taking workshops from the University of
    Mississippi (Ole Miss), including the Yoknapatawpha Writers’ Workshop, Southern
    Breeze (SCBWI) Writing and Illustrating for Kids Conference, and more.  I received my
    Diploma in Creative Writing from England's Open College for the Arts, as well as three
    diplomas on children's literature from the Institute of Children's Literature. I've
    completed accredited writing courses in playwriting, poetry, and fiction from Writers
    Digest and Gotham Writers, earning Gotham Writers Fiction Writing Certificate.  After
    writing sunup to sundown, the crushing blow of each rejection didn't serve to
    discourage, but to encourage me toward polished writing with well-developed plots
    and three-dimensional characters.  Therefore, I started stories, poetry, and songs
    over...and over...and over...and over again.

    But isn't life like that anyway, starting over...and over....and over again?  Going back to
    the starting line to run the race again and again isn't a sign of failure.  Walking away
    from the race is.
