There is no other place to be when away from my laptop, but with other writers. I look forward to sharing writing, critique, and being with others who understand the highs and lows.
I have had a few short pieces published in regional mags. Yes, my goal is to expand into other publications.
I accidentally took a journaling class three years ago and fell in love with writing. It is a wonderful challenge to improve my skills.
Primarily memoir, in short story form, or what I call life 'episodes.'
My real embarrassment is that I don't read. Writers cannot understand how I can write as well as I do without reading. Many say that they were motivated to write because of their love of books.
I moved to Orlando two short weeks ago. I was in Philly for a year and in Sarasota for seven. I was active in varied writing and critique groups. I write memoir, but when my brain is overworked, I turn to light poetry and silly non-fiction.
