JANUARY 2015

WELCOME TO 2015 JANUARY CELEBRATIONS!

 

Welcome to 2015! It has been quite some time since we at Casa Zia Productions have written our monthly announcement. We have been very busy pursuing new goals in academia and performance but are delighted to be able to embrace this year with exciting and new beginnings.

This month we take delight in celebrating two wonderful events in writing and publishing: January 18th, “Thesaurus Day”, and January 23rd, “National Handwriting Day”. As writers it can be very difficult to avoid redundancy when composing thoughts and ideas. Thank goodness for Peter Roget! He is the founder of our “Right~Hand Man”, the thesaurus. With this handy tool we are able to find synonyms and antonyms to improve the quality of our literary works. Even the most novice of writers can create engaging stories with just a simple tweak of a word. Don’t forget to add this to your desk list!

 And let’s not forget the by~gone days of handwritten communication. Remember how nice it was to receive a real live paper~to~pen letter from that dear old aunt, or that long lost friend? How about the scented musings of a lover’s thoughts romantically written just for you? Well, let’s not let this sentimental gesture die by the wayside! Why not purchase a beautifully crafted pen or calligraphy quill and decorative notepad, sit down with your favorite cup of tea {it IS January!}, get cozy and draft a handwritten letter of your own to someone special? Imagine the recipient’s joy of receiving this in the age of texting and social media! Great way to jumpstart relationships to a whole new level this year!
