Description
I have been writing since I first put pencil to that widely lined paper they give you in kindergarten. Iíve worked with writers for 20 years as an editor, desktop publisher, and instructor, and Iíve taught all kinds of writing, including academic and technical. I specialized in writerís block and writing apprehension for my Masterís, and my Doctorate is in Rhetoric and Composition. Through a rather long process of understanding what I have been trying to accomplish with and for writers, I am developing a business as a creativity consultant for writers, which will be located at collaborative-writer.com.

I love Ancient Greek history, and always have. In fact, my first two goldfish were named Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, and they got along about as well as their historical forbears. Iím writing a murder mystery set in Ancient Athens because my second love is a good murder mystery.

It does seem for many people that the day just comes, a line is crossed, some straw somewhere breaks some camel's back, and there you are: you must finally do it, you must finally say that which has been building inside you this whole time. It's also not that uncommon to come to the writing fairly 'late' in life. There are very clear reasons for this; for one thing, writing is the one thing that requires a fair amount of maturity to do 'well,' if at all, largely because it requires so much self-...

I am reading The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition, and will be blogging about it at some point. It is has been enormously helpful so far, because I have been massively stuck in one place on my ancient Athenian murder mystery, and this book is helping me see that I never really understood my plot, but is also helping me see how I might be able to get past where I was forced to leave off by virtue of never having understood my plot. http://www.amazon.com/The-Writers-Journ...
