I have been writing most of my life and work at a newspaper, so I guess you could say I write for a living, although newspaper reporting is not the kind of writing I prefer! I mostly write poetry and short stories, and would like to one day COMPLETE a novel. I also read a lot - both popular literature and the classics. I live in the southern United States, which places me in the Bible belt community. It's lonely here. Enough said. I am hoping to network with other writers and discuss interesting issues. I will post on my blog as often as I can.
