Sharing My World

The last new place I visited was a place I dubbed Hemingway Island. It was more of a small cove somewhere in Ohio. I spent a weekend there, that started on Thursday. This was the view across the water. As a writer, I write to the tune of inspiration. Fiction, nonfiction, short and long stories. Essays, magazine articles. I love it all. With the love of writing, I have to say, sight is my favorite sense. So much of my inspiration stems from things I see. Right now, in a room of 100 people, not many would be more satisfied … Continue reading Sharing My World

I posted this picture, wrote the story behind it, attempted to preview it, and save it as a draft, when the preview didn’t work. What happened? My computer froze. Okay, it’s not the picture.

Writing With Pen and Paper: Daily Prompt

This is a given for me. Doing this, typing my words as I think them, this is hard. I am a hunt and peck person so typing takes time. If I tried to type a story, I’d lose the idea while typing the title. So pen and paper has always been my method. Besides, I love the feel of my words as they flow from my fingers. I have so much written in long hand and I never tire of writing that way. I will never tire of writing that way. Continue reading Writing With Pen and Paper: Daily Prompt
