Thanks for joining! What brings you to our group?

Recently relocated to the Cleveland area after a long time away. I miss the community of other writers.

What would you like to accomplish in your writing each month?

Just to keep doing it. Also to explore new ways to publish it (e.g. online applications like blogging, Storify, Twitter, etc.) and where possible, profit from it. And to get closer to my goal of publishing a nonfiction book.

What is, or are the things that hold you back from your writing goals? Would consider taking courses to improve your writing skills, or increase your chances of being published?

To be totally honest? Time... and perhaps a bit of self-consciousness.

What do you write, when you write? Fiction, non-fiction? Genre? Where in a book store would you books land?

I've been a journalist my entire adult life, working mostly in print and online. I've dabbled occasionally in unpublished poetry and short stories. I have an idea for a nonfiction book that I'd like to develop.

Are you published? Have you published? Do you want to publish? Have you considered Self-Publishing?

My news articles are widely published by the outlets for which I was employed. But other than that - not yet!


I'm a lifelong writer, recently back in Cleveland after about 10 years away. Always love meeting up with other scribes and hoping to advance some ideas for a nonfiction book, and have some discussions on making money as a writer (in broadest sense).
