I love writing. Doing so is an amazing form of expression. But writing nonfiction is only part of what I want to be doing. Fiction is another important form of expression for me.


Issue #22: Starting Anew

With 2015 coming to a close, many projects have been completed. Freelancers are now looking to 2016 as a fresh start, maybe even a new beginning. I know I am. I love to start things fresh.

Issue #2: Inspire Me

What, or whom, inspires you? I have many people and things that inspire me: My family, my friends, my cats. My home and the world around me. I find it inspiring to walk along a river bank.

Books and movies always inspire new ideas. While reading or watching, … Continue reading Issue #2: Inspire Me
