No answer yet

What genres do you like? Who are your favorite writers?

I like the classics and short stories. My favorite writers are Dickens, Hardy and Poe. More contemporary favorites are Faulkner, Hemingway, DeLillo, Steinbeck and Sinclair Lewis. Of course the list goes on and on.i

Have you chosen a particular format? Novel, Short story, poetry, etc. Please elaborate.

My main interest is writing short stories but I usually end up writing poetry because it's much easier. I have,secretly, written since I was 15 but unfortunately destroyed most of my work because I didn't feel it measured up. I was always afraid I had the passion but not the gift (Salieri in Amadeus). But now I don't care anymore. I love to write and am still trying to harness the beast.

If you could write your short bio on a book jacket , what would it say?

He's a middle aged (old but not too old) man who was born to write but didn't do so until late in life. He hopes the wait was worth it.

We ask that you read and acknowledge that you understand RULES OF THE ROAD (Posted under 'pages'). Also, for writing tips, tools,and upcoming webinar news, join penpaperwrite at this link. http://penpaperwrite.com/writers/

Yes I do understand and agree.

Introduction

Hello, my name is George R.. I live in Marietta GA and I am a widower who is rather abashed in having waited so long to write regularly.

What George R. is saying about this Meetup Group

The ambience at these meetings is almost perfect for learning the writing craft. That is what is most important for me.
