Why do you want to join the group? Please tell us something about yourself

I recently realized that if I'm ever going to feel comfortable with the idea of retirement (within 10 years), I need to start building some structure now. I'd like to have some fun writing fiction and explore writing groups in Northern Virginia.

What writing experience have you had? (New writers are welcomed and encouraged to attend!)

I wrote features and news stories for local and trade newspapers for 25 years. Then I moved into the federal government sector, so now I'm editing policy and procedures manuscripts full time. All of my jobs have been very educational and interesting. I love words.

Are you currently working on any projects?

I'm not working on any projects now; I'm just using writing prompts to get some practice. I have been a voracious reader of fiction for 45 years.

Do you have skills that you would be willing to share with the group?

I have extensive news writing, interviewing, proofreading and editing skills that I can offer.


Hello, my name is Toni, and I'm taking baby steps down a new path toward fiction writing.
