My love of writing has a direct correlation to acute pain of rejection, the cycle of grief and the cathartic properties that journal writing has to offer anyone who likes to write. Basically, I wrote about how much of a turd my first husband was.
Currently, I am very much in love, married to the man that is truly the ying to my yang. And that other guy, well, he’s divorced again and very much alone. The whole torrid story can be found at wooldrdgirl.wordpress.com.
I started taking courses at SNHU in September 2013 as a Business major with an emphasis on Small business. I attended the courses as required and found I really enjoyed the english classes, much more than the math classes. Two of my instructors commented on my writing ability and suggested I speak to my counselor about changing my course of study to a writing major. So, like I was saying, I am a Creative Writing Major with an emphasis on Fiction at SNHU and will complete this course of study in September 2017.
When the writing bug hits me, I must write or I suffer sleeplessness and bizarre dreams. Actually, Giana Moon came to me in a dream, and I could not sleep until I started putting it on paper. It was an exciting and effortless process, letting the original idea for “Giana Moon” to pour out of me. A short except of the novel is also available on wooldrdgirl.wordpress.com.
Now I’m learning the real work involved in being a good writer. What I’ve discovered is that words are meaningless if they are not authentic. So as my story evolves, as the characters become more real, the need to research becomes almost more important than the writing itself.
