throwing 5cents in here LOL
just joined this blog thru Donnie's welcoming hand....(huge smiles)... I used to write freestyle poemy verses in my 20's...in school I wrote essays & studied American Lit, Creative Writing, Mythology & such. I even studied some Etymology & Linguistics on my own back then....then 84-86, I took a 2yr correspondence course thru the Institute for Childrens Literature, up in Redding Ridge CT, got my diploma blah blah but I never sent 7-8 short stories out into the world, being as I felt my work was not good enough compared to published authors-- tho my instructor Bryna Fireside (YES her real name LOL) insisted all along I WAS a true writer (snickers)...I've done freelance proofreading & editing for client-friends college papers back in the day, and I also used to work 4.5 yrs in the Classifieds Dept for the 7 military newspapers in MD-DC-VA (Comprint Inc) til 93.
..My Dad used to work for McGrawHill Pub Co in NYC for 27yrs, so I guess ink is in my blood LOL You can easily tell cause I can write 1000-1500 words in a heartbeat LOL.
I love most all genres, love to read AND sing--who needs sleep? LOL...I read articles online voraciously daily..more input!!!... Ok too much coffee-rambling going on, but ya all know me now (snickers)....Someone has inspired me to kick in the writing juices again, so stay posted...now back to our regulary scheduled Tuesday..... =)
