I started writing poetry at age 11. Journals from teens to present day. Then short fiction, an unfinished novel and a few completed short stories. Poetry ongoing throughout. Mother of three, actor and singer, would-be playwright and director.
Writing Interests, Goals & Published Works:
Goal is to finish original manuscript of aforementioned novel, but expand beyond its original aims. I've "attacked" the ms from a variety of different perspectives, producing three versions for workshop purposes. I've published poems in Cadenza, Mars Hill College's now-defunct lit journal, Wildacres Poetry and Poetry Motel. My interest is open; short stories and a play at the moment. I was a humor columnist for a local magazine for three years, published monthly. It's amazing how much a writer learns about editing/revision, composing 300-word articles. A useful exercise, especially to those whose tendency is to overwrite like I do. Is it just me, or is Chuck Berry's plain old USA missing from your list? I used to live on a peninsula and later, an island, but Georgia doesn't qualify in the above category for country.
