What Shoes Would Your Main Character Wear?


“What Shoes Would Your Main Character Wear?” by Joan Y. Edwards

Thank you, Jennifer Larson for your clever new picture book, “Lost Soles” in which Flip and Flop go on a trip to the beach to protect a little boy’s feet from the hot sand. On the way back to the car, Flip bounces out of the beach cart and is left behind. How sad! You’ll have to read it to find out if Flip and Flop get back together again.

Beware: Windows Scam


Beware: Windows Scam Copyright © 2014 Joan Y. Edwards

Beware: Windows Scam Copyright © 2014 Joan Y. Edwards

“Beware: Windows Scam” by Joan Y. Edwards

On November 5, 2014 a scammer posing as a person in customer service for windows computers called me. He said, “I am from Windows computers. Your computer has been sending error messages to windows. Your computer could be giving personal information to hackers.”

He called from a cell phone number. This was a clue that he wasn’t necessarily from a company. If a phone call is from a major company, its name would probably show up in my caller ID.

I asked him, “What is my name?”

He didn’t answer that. He only had the name our phone was listed, my husband’s. He said, “Is _____ your husband? Let me talk with him. When will he be home?”

I told him, “My husband doesn’t own the computer.”

I asked him, “What kind of computer do I have?”

The scammer answered, “All brands of Windows computers have this software on them that send Windows messages when it receives malicious software. You have gone to different websites and downloaded malicious items from them.”

I said, “I have software to keep malicious things off of my computer.”

Then I hung up.


If you have an answering machine and caller ID, it’s a good idea to let people from unknown numbers, leave a message.  Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t.  Scammers, I think, want to speak directly to a real person. They are not likely to leave a message, but they might.

If I had fallen for his scam, the man would have charged me a fee with my credit card to download software for him to take remote control of my computer. He would tell me, “I’m going to remove all the malicious software off of it.”

Probably, what the scamming man would really do is get all personal information from my computer…bank accounts, social security, passwords, etc.

Scammers may pretend to be from phone companies who handle the internet for customers, too. These companies do not have enough time to call all their customers about possible viruses or other malicious software on the customer’s computers. They have enough problems keeping the internet and phone service going.

Here are links that explain this scam more:

  1. If you’re not having any kind of problem with your computer, don’t let them invent one for you. I went to a You-Tube video and watched an actual recording of one of the Windows scammers. The language got rough at the end. So I’m not putting the link to it. However, in it, I learned that the scammers may direct you to look at an area of your computer where your computer log is kept and show you warning messages there. They will lead you to believe that these warnings are about a virus infecting your computer, but they probably aren’t.  It could be a warning about the clock being off. These warnings and errors are usually not the kind of thing to worry about according to Leo A. Notenboom. He explains further in an online article about the event viewer in a computer’s log: http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewer_and_should_i_care.html
    Leo says, “Go ahead and browse around in the Event Viewer. Don’t panic when you see lots of warnings or errors. As I said, even a functioning computer will have those. In fact, if you look while your system is functioning normally, you’ll get a sense of what “normal” looks like in your Event Log. Then, later when you see items that seem suspicious, out of place, or seem to be related to the problems you’re seeing, that’s information worth paying attention to.”
  2. Scammers use legitimate remote control software from AMMYY (Remote Control from Any Place) – This software is free however, scammers may try to charge you for it.  http://www.welivesecurity.com/2012/08/24/ammyy-warning-against-tech-support-scams/
  3. Microsoft’s Warning about these Scammers: http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx
  4. Spammers say they falsely tell you they know your computer ID. They take you to a part of your computer with the CLSID: 888DCA60. This is not the distinct ID unique number that is different on each computer. This ID is the class number signifying that it is a certain class of computers. This number is the same on almost all of the computers made during the last five years or so: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r28048626-Scam-Call-qYour-computer-is-infectedq-scam
  5. David Jacoby Walks You through Spammers Steps: http://securelist.com/blog/incidents/33734/trying-to-unmask-the-fake-microsoft-support-scammers-17/

Four Main Points to Remember about Scams such as this::

  1. Microsoft or other companies, telephone or computer companies do not call you. There is no company called Windows.  Microsoft, Windstream, or other companies will not call to tell you that a virus is infecting your computer.
  2. There is no software on every windows computer that sends messages back to Microsoft.
  3. If a company calls you and tells you that your computer is infected with a virus or malicious things, and you have not called this company, hang up.
  4. Note the number they called from, the name of the company they represent, and the person’s name who called you: and report it to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted?NextQID=216&Selected=t#crnt

Keep yourself and others safe. Spread the word so that others are informed. Knowledge is power.

 

Celebrate you.

Beware: Phone Scammers Impersonate IRS


Beware  Phone Scammers Impersonate IRS Copyright © 2014 Joan Y. Edwards

Beware Phone Scammers Impersonate IRS Copyright © 2014 Joan Y. Edwards

“Beware: Phone Scammers Impersonate IRS” by Joan Y. Edwards

A scammer called me this week, posing as an IRS representative. I didn’t fall for it. I checked the internet to find out more about it. Please be alert and aware that this is going on all over the USA and scammers could choose your phone number to call.  They may call in person or leave a recording. They tell you a badge number and may tell you to call a certain number before the IRS takes action against you.

I reported the scam reported the scam and the number they called me from that showed up in my caller ID: http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml

You can find out more information about the IRS scam at: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/IRS-Reiterates-Warning-of-Pervasive-Telephone-Scam

Here’s a portion of what that page tells you:

The IRS will notify you by snail mail if there is a problem with your return or taxes.

Here’s what I found out on the internet at

“Other characteristics of this scam include:

  • Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.
  • Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number.
  • Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling.
  • Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.
  • Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.
  • After threatening victims with jail time or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, here’s what you should do:

  • If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS employees at that line can help you with a payment issue, if there really is such an issue.
  • If you know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for example, you’ve never received a bill or the caller made some bogus threats as described above), then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1.800.366.4484 or report it at: http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml
  • You can file a complaint using the FTC Complaint Assistant; choose “Other” and then “Imposter Scams.” If the complaint involves someone impersonating the IRS, include the words “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.”

Please tell your family and friends so they can be aware, alert, and safe.

Celebrate you.

When You Reach One Dream, Set a New One!

I had a very exciting weekend at the SCWW Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. I reached a goal I set about 5 years ago to be asked to be a paid presenter at a writing conference! Linda Cookingham, conference chair for this year’s conference, invited me in March 2014 to be a paid presenter from Dr. Bob Rich’s recommendation. Thank you, Dr. Bob and Linda.

This past weekend, I achieved my dream. I gave three workshops during the SCWW conference:

  1. “Get Your Blog Going and Make It Stand Out.” Thank you to the 12-19 people who came.

Now that I achieved this dream, I am setting my sight on a new one:
My new dream is to be a paid keynote speaker for a conference to inspire and motivate people to believe in themselves and their dreams!

It’s important when you reach one dream to set a new one. It gives you a reason to live. Something to look forward to. Please share a dream you reached. Did you set another goal when you reached it? What is one of your present goals? I would love to hear all about it.

When you finish one project, set up a new one.
When you retire, set up a new goal to help others.
When you learn how to bat a ball, learn how to improve another skill in baseball.
When you learn how to create good characters, set a goal to improve a different writing skill.
Celebrate each step you take.
Celebrate each new thing you learn.
Celebrate when you have a plan to keep unpleasant things from happening again.
Celebrate when you have a plan that works to keep you rejuvenated and full of life.
Believe in You!

You’re Good. Laugh at Your Rejections. (Happy 5th Birthday Blog)


Laugh at Your Rejections

“You’re Good. Laugh at Your Rejections (Happy 5th Birthday Blog)” by Joan Y. Edwards  FREE GIVEAWAY Chance. (Details after blog post)

This is the #3 in Series – Famous Writers Recovered from Rejection, So Can You. The series tells you about authors who made it, even though publishers rejected them. You can make it, too.

Gotham Writers Workshop gives you three tips for coping with rejection:

  1. Laugh at your rejections.
  2. Learn from your rejections.
  3. Always have a new project underway, something that will give you hope no matter how many rejections come your way for the previous project.

You may take some consolation in knowing the rejection history of the following  writers and works:

Edgar Allen Poe According to One Hundred Rejections.com, Harpers rejected “Folio Club Tales with the following note: “Readers in this country have a decided and strong preference for works (especially fiction) in which a single and connected story occupies the whole volume, or a number of volumes, as the case may be.” Poe kept trying and the next year this same publisher accepted his book for publication.

E. E. Cummings (e.e. cummings, Edward Estlin Cummings) wrote The Enormous Room and was unable to find a publisher. Cummings self-published much of his work and struggled financially. In the 1940s and 1950s, his style of writing became popular and he gave live readings before full houses.

Emily Dickinson When she was living, Emily Dickinson had 12 poems published after her publishers changed her wording to match the “accepted rhyming patterns of the day.” All the rest were rejected. Sadly, no one recognized Emily Dickinson’s genius during her lifetime. After her death, her sister found her poems and her first collection was published in 1890.

Emily Giffin wrote bestselling novels Something Borrowed and Something Blue. She had what Emily called a mean agent who just wrote a one-line, they all rejected it. They referred to eight New York city Publishers to whom the agent submitted . Her books, Something Borrowed and Something Blue were made into movies. Interview on Today.com: http://www.today.com/video/today/37130156#37130156

Ernest Hemingway didn’t like his publisher, Boni & Liveright. He purposely wrote a script he knew they would reject called “The Torrents of Spring.” As Heminway planned, Horace Liveright turned him down which broke his contract. Liveright said, “It would be in rotten taste to publish “The Torrents of Spring.” Then, Ernest found Scribner, who published all of his books and every book became a bestseller. Here are three: The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and A Farewell to Arms.

Frank Herbert wrote the Science Fiction book, Dune, after spending time in Florence, Oregon in 1953 to do a magazine article about a United States Department of Agriculture project to stabilize the dunes by planting beach grass. It changed the ecology of the dune areas and was very controversial. This inspired the setting for what Herbert called his “messiah story.”

By 1963, his agent submitted Dune for publication.Two years and 22 rejections later, a publisher accepted it. In the next 21 years, he published six Dune books, over thirty fiction and non-fiction books, and many magazine articles.

F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby. He received one big rejection that stated, “You’d have a decent book if you’d get rid of that Gatsby character.”

Fitzgerald wrote a letter giving advice to a new writer. Every writer can learn from the wisdom of his words.

“You’ve got to sell your heart, your strongest reactions, not the little minor things that only touch you lightly, the little experiences that you might tell at dinner.”

George Orwell wrote Animal Farm After four rejections, Orwell’s novel was published in 1945. Five years later, a Russian émigré in West Germany, Vladimir Gorachek, published a small print in Russian to distribute free to readers behind the Iron Curtain. And in 1954, the CIA funded an animated adaptation of Animal Farm by John Halas and Joy Batchelor.

Gertrude Stein wrote poems for 22 years. Stein received a rejection letter from Arthur C.Fifeld, Publisher, London for her manuscript entitled, “Three Works.”

I think that Fifeld got carried away in his long rejection. I shortened it here: “I am only one, only one, only one. Only one being, one at the same time. Not two, not three, only one…Only one look, only one look is enough. Hardly one copy would sell here. Hardly one. Hardly one…returning the M.S. by registered post. Only one M.S. by one post.”

Her poetry was not well-read, but one line from it is well-remembered, “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose. Loveliness extreme.” Nigel Rees says that the phrase in Stein’s poem Sacred Emily describes the artwork of the artist, Sir Francis Cyril Rose. She thought he made nature come alive. Here’s a picture painted by Sir Francis Cyril Rose.

Stein’s only bestseller was the story of her life told through the character named Toklas in The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.

Harper Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird and it won the Pulitzer Prize. She never got her other novels published.

Thank you for reading my blog. Today, October 9, 2014 is the fifth birthday of my blog. Thank you to one of my readers, Widdershins, who coined the phrase “Blogaversary.” So you could call say, “Happy 5th Blogaversary.”

There are other sites that list authors with rejections who never gave up. There are biography sites that you can research your favorite authors to find out how they overcame rejection. This is the last blog post in this series. I hope that reading about famous authors who were rejected and never gave up, inspires you to keep on going towards success in the publication of all your manuscripts.

Thank you for reading my blog and making it grow. I appreciate all of you. It is wonderful that you share my posts with your friends in your online communities: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and emails, etc.  Thank you.
