I am a writer. Published more than once in various venues it's a good mental exercise. I enjoy listening to other writers read the projections of their soul they have dared to place on paper or in an electronic file. It reminds me that there is true sincerity in the world and it's right at our fingertips. You have only to look over your shoulder to find it.........
I am a nurse. I have been in 'trauma' for the past 35 years. All the while writing, researching, healing, creating, educating... it's part of what we do. Nursing is more than a job, it's a lifestyle and I've learned many, many life lessons there.
I am a artist also. I have illustrated my own children's book, "Sebastian Has Turtle Trouble". I also own my own Publishing Company; SlugHugs Publishing. It publishes all of Sebastian's works! I enjoy helping others realize their potential as a writer or illustrator. It just isn't that difficult to get it done. A little faith, a little persistence... you can make it happen. I'd be happy to mentor anyone who would like to do the same.
Hello my name is Joni. I have belonged to Writer's Groups in the past but this one will be different. I have organized this MeetUp but that doesn't mean the group is 'mine'. It will belong to all who join and are active in the group.
Inspiration, creative energy abound... it's simply the best Writer's Club around! Come, share your writing... we will listen, offer constructive comments, encouragement to take it one step further and suggestions for the next months Meet-Up. Watching your project develop... unfold, is exciting, fulfilling for both you and the members that share the evening with you. Come, share your writing with us! Joni (organizer)
