World of Writing.
Writing gave me an avenue to express my emotions.
When people look back on their lives, some remember dialogues best; others vividly recall faces and images; yet others remember scents, sounds, or tastes.
I recollect important moments through emotions - with a startling, poignant clarity above everything else. I see the world through a palette of feelings, and it blends its way into everything I experience.
The thesaurus was my first love. Poetry was my second. Both taught me how to capture the inner world I hid from everyone else in words like strokes of color in a painting.
Gradually, writing crept its way into short stories, essays, creative nonfiction, my high school and college papers, and finally into the novel I am writing.
For years, I have served as a successful resource for those who seek inspiration and those who need support in elevating their language and writing skills or finding their own voice.
It all started in third grade, when I first fell in love with the thesaurus...
