It's IWSG Wednesday, our friend Alex Cavanaugh's brainchild wherein writers help other writers. It's an amazing group, and if you want to read more participants, click here. The ninja captain requested we include our bios this month, along with our IWSG posts. Here's mine:
I'm pretty sure I write from my bones. Now a freelance writer, blogger and developing fiction writer, I spent a lifetime in the corporate world before a job elimination forced a long awaited change in priorities. The next morning, words broke out and I've never looked back. My freelance articles and essays have appeared in Boston Globe Magazine, South Shore Living, Adoptive Families Magazine and Writersdigest.com and I'm currently querying a novel.
I’m not a resolution girl. I don’t make them, not out loud anyway. I prefer private goals, being superstitious enough to think if people hear (or read) me say something, I’ll fail. Which leads me to formulate rather ordinary words for my first IWSG post of 2015. Things like, keep plugging. Get up every day and plan to write and stick to the plan.
Admittedly, it's not much. But if you are looking for more, Writer's Digest posted fifty essays that might offer assistance, and perhaps, inspiration. I will say this out loud and in print. I'm planning on reading them all.
Happy New Year. Shall we make it a good one?
