This is a new year – 2017 – so I thought I would go with a new look. First… ta-da … my new haircut. I am standing in front of a painting at the Winnsboro Center For the Arts that was done by the talented Brenda Roberts. The photo was taken by Jim Willis, the Bowery Stage Manager at the art center.
Winnsboro is a small community with a family feel, and I love that we all support each other in our creative endeavors.
If you would like to contact me for a review or editing, or just to say “hello” you can do so at: firstname.lastname@example.org I do like to chat with readers.
When I found this picture, I thought it was an appropriate illustration since I did start writing with a pen and paper those many moons ago before computers.
While I now write by typing on a keyboard, I still love the look and feel of a fine fountain pen.
Most days I can be found in my office, typing away on said keyboard, but sometimes other commitments take me away from that daily routine, and I have been known to snarl just a bit when that happens. We writers tend to be a bit obsessed about the need to be working, but it is true that if we are removed from the creative process for long periods of time, we become stale.
We never want to do that.
Stale is bad for brownies and bread and stories.
I love this graphic that was designed by the nice folks at The Romance Studio, where very fine romance novels are featured. Here is a link to my blog piece there The Story Behind the Story
Calling all writers!
Even after all these years of writing, I learned something new from previewing a couple of the webinars!
I will be doing a webinar on editing in June, and you can find a full list of the workshop topics and presenters at www.sandhbooks.com/online-writer-workshops/
