Hi! My name is Donna - I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, co-worker, friend, cousin, cook, gardener, traveller, reader and storyteller...but the common thread running through all the hats I wear is that I am a WRITER. I just attended the Green Pen Writer's Conference (my first conference ever) and have a renewed sense of purpose where writing is concerned. One of the first orders of business is to find some like-minded colleagues to help me stay motivated and for whom I might offer some help, encouragement or motivation along the way.
I started journaling and writing poetry at a very young age. I am working on a series of short stories and have my sights set on a novel. I love to write and I find that when I write I am a happier person all the way around. I seem to have focus issues...I have too many ideas floating in my mind and can't seem to clear them out to focus on one project at a time...the other issue I run into is time itself. My plate is full and overflowing at times, but ultimately, I know that I have MAKE time for my writing.
Ultimately, in joining this group, I am setting aside the time to focus on my writing in one form or another. I am also putting myself in a better position to meet other people who have the same interest, some different perspectives and a love for the written word. I hope that I can find objective feedback and learn new skills to help keep my focused and excited about my writing.
I was looking on the internet for writing groups in the area. I started reading the bios of members and felt that I might fit with this group better than some others I ran across. I am extremely motivated and excited about moving forward with my writing projects and I look forward to meeting other ladies who are too.
My name is Donna Dotson Wicker, but I am writing as Donna J. Dotson
so much good energy from this group of talented and inspiring ladies!
