“I’ve always felt that my ‘style’—the careful projection onto paper of who I think I am—was my only marketable asset, the only possession that might set me apart from other writers.” ---William Zinsser

So, You Want to Be a Writer?

Lots of people want to be writers. Where to begin? With reading, paying attention to the world, making connections, then putting words on paper. On Saturday, February 23, I began a workshop with the Cuyahoga County Library System by asking that question. And then we all started thinking like writers. If you write, you're already a writer, but you can hone your craft and get inspired at a Word Lovers retreat. This year's event  takes place the weekend after Memorial Day, in Lakeside. Reserve your space today!

A Winding Road - Writing

My photo
My book, "Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries," an Arcadia production, explores the history of island and lakeshore wineries from the mid-1800s through today. I write travel, memoir, profiles, book reviews, local interest articles, and fiction. My writing is always of discovery--whether it's journaling, book reviewing, letter writing, or sharing an experience of life. I have written two novels and am working on a third novel and a memoir. I am passionate about sharing what life has to offer with others. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron woke me up to a sense of possibility--life is too short not be enjoyed by living deeply and well. I created Igniting Possibilities, a conduit for creativity workshops and events, in the hope of guiding others to realize their full potential. The Word Lover's Retreats at Lakeside, Ohio's Chautauqua community, help writers find their voice and direction.
