Run, don’t walk, to listen to Inside Creative Writing

Very interesting blog post. I started listening to the podcast mentioned here and was immediately hooked. Had to share this on my blog.

Live to Write - Write to Live


If you’d like, you can listen to this post.

I am a writer, but I am not yet the writer I want to be.

I have had very little in the way of formal training. I do not have a college degree or an MFA. I have taken a few, scattered writing courses (most recently a class on writing fantasy at the wonderful Grub Street in Boston), but mostly I’ve cobbled together random bits and pieces – like a magpie collecting shiny things to adorn its nest.

Though my journey has followed a somewhat circuitous path, I believe that I have made progress.

Now it is my turn to create some of my own. I live in sunny southern California with my beautiful wife and two perfect children (I may be biased). I write like I read, constantly. I studied anthropology at UCSB and medicine at SUNY Buffallo.

    I really enjoyed that podcast. Every writer is different. You do what you have to do (and what you have time to do) in order to improve.

    Congratulations on getting your book (s) published. I know it is quite an accomplishment. I have tried to write several books. None published, but the experience of writing was invigorating. I still want to accomplish that eventually. Nothing is coming right now, and I am loving blogging, AND writing Reviews! So I’ll enjoy reading yours if it’s an ebook. My shelves are full, and ebooks are so easy to cart around. oh yes — thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂 Marsha 🙂
