How long have you called yourself a writer?

Forever - I probably signed my own birth certificate because the doctor's hand-writing was illegible.

What changes would you like to see in your writing craft/talent with this group?

I want to learn how to craft a story well, so I'm more than just a story-teller. I want to learn about sub-text and symbolism to deepen my writing as well as making it impossible to put down.

What writing rituals/habits do you have, if any?

Since retiring, I write every day for at least a couple of hours, plus I read a lot about writing.

What are your goals as a writer, if any?

I want my writing to relate to peoples' real lives and their problems, depicting both as honestly as my skill permits.


Hi, I'm Judy, author of the novel "Shelter Me - when friendship is all that remains," (available online) and six short stories published in various anthologies. I'm excited about learning new writing tips & making new friends at the LVWG. Thanks.

What Judy Shine L. is saying about this Meetup Group

A great place to learn, laugh and mix with other writers! This is definitely true and I will be back! I'll just be more careful leaving the building.
