Recently relocated to the Cleveland area after a long time away. I miss the community of other writers.
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.
To be totally honest? Time... and perhaps a bit of self-consciousness.
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 I've dabbled occasionally in unpublished poetry and short stories.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.
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).
