In my earlier writing career most of my work was done at night, either longhand or on an IBM typewriter. Finally I was convinced that the new technology would not take anything away from my writing but allow me to write faster, edit more easily and produce essays, stories and poetry in a more efficient manner. Thoughts came quickly then, as they do now, so typing 100 words a minute is definitely an advantage.
Family life changed my habits. The corporate world forced a hiatus in my writing while I raised children and kept house. Those days are gone. With the children grown and gone, I left my cubicle in the marketing department and came back to writing, as I always knew I would. Admittedly, it interferes with my housekeeping. Dinner isn't always on the table at 6 o'clock. Ah, these are the trade-offs but they seem minor.
Being a professional contributing writer to Orlando Home & Leisure (http://www.ohlmag.com/) and GRAND Magazine (http://www.grandmagazine.com/) I am able to make enough money to support my habit. Many of my articles are written around celebrity interviews that I've done.
In the present and immediate future, I am concentrating on my upcoming book, a memoir of a famous person who did not receive the recognition he deserved. This blog will document my work on the book.
