Welcome to the Land of 10,000 Words


StacyMonsonThanks for stopping by the Land of 10,000 Words! Here in Minnesota we have thousands of lakes, millions of people, and four seasons to inspire and entertain. Minnesota is home to the country’s largest State Fair (well, second only to Texas but since everything is big in Texas, I’m not sure that counts!), an arts and entertainment scene that rivals Chicago and New York, (Prince lived here his whole life) and Spam. Yup, the birthplace of Spam.

I’m proud to be a Minnesotan. We elect the strangest politicians, we choose to go outside when it’s below zero, and we’re recognized as one of the best places to live (and many times as THE best). Swing by and visit some day. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Winter has arrived here in Minnesota – bare branches reaching to a winter blue sky, an abrupt drop of temps, flurries spiraling down.


What’s better than being cozy under a blanket, a fire crackling in the fireplace, a mug of hot cocoa topped with the lightest whipped cream, and a good book? LOTS of good books! Since I’m a full-blooded Minnesotan (or is that cold-blooded??), here are some good reads from amazing Minnesota authors to keep you busy reading through long winter nights:

Brenda Anderson

Joseph Courtemanche

Julie Klassen

Joy DeKok

Connie Lounsbury

Gabrielle Meyer

Julie Saffrin

Kari Trumbo

Erica Vetsch

Susan May Warren

No one can go back and make a brand new start, but anyone can start from here and make a brand new end.    (Carl Bard)

    You’ve had a wonderful idea to promote other writers in this space! What a blessing to them, and to us as we learn about them!

    What a great idea for your blog, especially to those living in Minnesota who would like to know about the local writers and find out more about their home state. I like the name you chose for your blog too!


  3. Great stories/interviews on MN writers. Nice job Stacy!


  4. This is such a great way to help people connect to local writers. I wanted to introduce myself last night at the MN NICE meeting but didn’t find a time to do it (you helped me find an open spot to sit when I came in late). I look forward to reading your blog and maybe I’ll see you in the future.

    Have a great day!

    It was a wild meeting last night, that’s for sure! I’m glad you connected with Rachel at your corner of the table. I’d love to chat more so drop me a note soon. Oh, and I loved your blog this morning about talking too much. Great points!
