Writing is the act of putting your soul on paper.
I wish I could remember the name of it...a book written by a young author whose friend died before she could get published....it was about the real work we need to put into this 'art' to get something done.
I am a former journalist and writing teacher who would kill for a column (I had one once in a local paper and LOVED it)...but currently have children's, tweens and adult works in progress. I don't have ADD, but my writing does, lol.
whatever engages me...if they get me on the first few pages, they have me! Mostly fiction, I'm not too high-brow about it. Currently reading "The O'Briens," b/c I couldn't resist!
MUST GET MANUSCRIPTS OUT OF MY HOUSE AND TO AN AGENT/PUBLISHER. easier said than done.
I'm a blogger: A BROAD ABROAD (pattiobrien.wordpress.com); an Editor (www.editingiseverything.com--special discounts for group members!) a teacher and a MOM. Oh, and a writer who needs to WRITE more--
