I have published my share of poetry and prose and I have won contests. I also have published two collections of poetry and a chapbook. I am working on three novels. Itís taken me years to get it right after that initial inspiration. I still hope I can get them to the state where they will draw the attention of a publisher. And in an effort to make it so I enroll in workshops and go to conferences and now I am also working toward a creative writing certificate at the university. First time back in years and I am learning a lot.
In closing I can say with certainty that I am a student of fiction writing and poetry. Learning how to do it right has been an overwhelming constant in my writing career. I wouldnít have it any other way because writing and reading are my life and with just the right amount of travelling thrown in to keep the creative juices flowing.
