Hello Writers Rising!
Allow me to introduce myself to the group and tell you a little about myself. Katherine signed me up today as a contributor, and requested my first post be a little about who I am.
I started my own Blog (http://currentripple.blogspot.com/) earlier this year as a way of achieving 2 things. One, to add some structure to my love of writing, and two, to combine that love with my passion for photography.
I have loved to sit and write since my high school days, where regular English class assignments allowed me the opportunity to breath life onto a page. Where others dreaded the essays, I welcomed them with eager anticipation. Coupling my writing with photography has had me make the leap to digital format, broadening my boundaries of creativity.
I write from the heart, with the bulk of my work as non-fiction, usually when the words urge me to put fingertips to keys and let them flow onto the screen. Like many of you I am sure, this urgent need to write almost overtakes me and I have to stop whatever I am doing at that moment, and let the words come. I never force the issue, if I don't feel connected, I don't write.
I try to keep everything on a positive plane, with heartfelt, deep soulful feeling.
I work in the publishing industry for a family owned chain of Community Newspapers, though in our IT department working with, and training our office personnel.
I look forward to this journey with all of you.
