Writer/editor for hire

“Writing is like prostitution. First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.” — Moliere, French playwright

I spend much of each day at the computer writing, as this July 2007 photo indicates.

I shoot people and I shoot places. This is Kylemore Abbey in Ireland. Taken June 2007.

I have done freelance writing for many national magazines, a local magazine and some newspapers over the past quarter century. I wrote and submitted some of the articles on speculation. Others were assigned. I wrote a business profile book on contract and have edited other folks’ books but I am pretty much retired.

    …I feel called to write..and have a ball and chain (fear/anxiety) around my leg holding me back. A friend recently got 13 of her stories published, and when I asked for guidance she said that “As a mother of 9, I don’t have the time.” She guided me to the AWAI site and I explored it. I have so much to say but don’t know how to begin.
    My fascination with words, spelling and a compulsion to say “just what I mean” I feel gives me a jump start. Without education in journalism, nor any passion to read all that much, except Christian content, all I have to qualify me is an opinion. Do you have any suggestions on how to begin? I will value all nuggets of wisdom.

    I enjoyed your site. You are having a rich life. Go for it!
