How long have you been writing, or thinking about writing?

My first experience with writing was applying to a correspondence school, which started well, but unable to finish. Over the course of forty years, I tried different things to jump start this interest. I had written various pieces, some complete, others never finished. But I never took them to a level of success. Thinking about writing was always on my mind. I am hoping by joining a critique class it will give me the support I need to bring my writing to fruition.

What genre do you like to write?

I like fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

Have you been published? If so, where and in what type of publication (books, magazine, online, blog, etc)

Readers Digest. Life in these United States.

Have you ever attended a writers' conference?


In 3 years, what would you like to look back, and see from your writing efforts?

Still writing, making good progress, new friends, and having some works published.


I retired from the construction field in 2009. I am married with two children, and one grandchild. My education consists of a B.R.E with two years of pastoral experience. We have lived in the Cedar Springs area since 1979.
