A Writer’s Guide… to being a Reporter

Welcome to the new series!  This is the Writer’s Guide series which will be published every Sunday.  These articles are resource posts from other writers who share their knowledge and experience at different occupations or skills.

The idea behind this is to create a resource library of information that other writers may find useful when creating characters with these skills/occupations.

Tell me about yourself

you

I have been fortunate that so many lovely people have followed my blog, liked the articles and left comments.  Since I started writing this blog you may have come to know a little more about me.

So this week, I thought we’d do something a little different.  I would love to learn more about you.  Where you are from, why you love to write, what you hope for 2018….

Share something in the comments or if you are shy, you can always use the Contact Form to reach out.  You don’t need to have a wordpress account to leave comments, though please note all comments are moderated.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Let’s connect!

To get the ball rolling, my answer would be scorpion tail.  Useful for people who sit in front of you at the movies and talk.  JAB!

Like any art or endeavor, one can’t just perch down at your desk and inform your brain, “Okay, brain tell me a story!”

1 – Have you always wanted to be a writer?

I feel kind of strange saying this, but no. Writing has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I wrote some short stories and poetry as a kid, but most of my writing took the form of daily diaries and journals.

I still have a box full of them! Once digital journals became a thing (anyone remember LiveJournal?), I kept one all through high school and college. Writing has always played a key role in helping me process the world and my feelings about it.
