There is something I read, a sentence by Emily Cline, that applies to many things: "There are so many opportunities, here on Earth, for embarrassment." I think it is a universal condition, one that sneaks up on all of us. It may occur (again!) to me, just writing this bio.
My nickname is LJ and I'm a retired writer, having been a journalist (staff reporter), and a published prose writer, trying my hand here at writing nonfiction and hopefully decent fiction.
There was also a play I wrote that was produced to good acclaim - out in Colorado.
And then there's the poetry. Sometimes things that seem too big to write about become poetry. I feel okay about a few of the poems I wrote, though still convinced my 'strong suit' is partially digested prose
Now I discovered the joys of taking photos with a cell phone camera! You're so supportive, I thank you all for the comments and faves. I am surprised, to be truthful. It's great!
I'm putting many things aside for the most part. To that end, I put over half of my work in Storage, including 14 of my DDs. The 15th is still in my gallery. 16 now.
But if you want to read something that isn't 'here' anymore, let me know and I'll retrieve it for you. There are 14 pages of work back there, and it's like panning for.... anything.
Thank you for the interest you show, the support I know is there, and for sharing your own work.
Yes, and you can put any you want on this page... she was wonderfully talented and amusing; her work needs to be shared; you're doing the right thing!
