What is your favorite writing saying?

No favorites, but lots of quotes that I refer to depending on my situation or need at the time. For instance: What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure." ~ Samuel Johnson ~

What is your favorite book on writing?

Again, no favorites. Writing the Natural Way by Gabriele Lusser Rico is good, if it's still in print.

What do you write?

Articles, columns, personal essays.

What do you read?

Mostly non-fiction, but The Kite Runner was magnificent.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

Published 100+ paid articles. (Will have the front-page story in the Philadelphia Inquirer Travel section this Sunday (March 2/08) on Botswana. Was Career Columnist for 3.5 years. Won some honorable mentions for a screenplay.


Freelance writer and actor, Philadelphia-based.

What Marianne is saying about this Meetup Group

Glad to have found a group that understands why writing is important, regardless of the writer's intentions of what to do with it. It's hard being a writer when the rest of the world is always asking "But what do you do for a REAL job?" or "Do you make a living at that?" Write on! Mariannne
