This is a site dedicated to the fine art of good-enough writing. It’s a tribute to The Would-Be Writers Guild, an actual group of people who gather monthly to write in spiral notebooks and eat a lot of good food. I hosted a group from June 2002 until June 2008 in Utah, I now host a new group on the east coast, and I also host this blog.
I write (almost) every weekday, using a method found in this amazing book I first read as a freshman in college, and rediscovered several years later. The method? I write fast. I don’t edit myself. I don’t think. I ignore the rules and go for it. Afterward, I go back and try to fix my grammar and spelling, then I post it for you to read. Then I ask my husband if he thinks I’m funny.
If you spend any amount of time on this site, you will learn more about me, my husband and two kids, our dog, my friends, my pet peeves, my observations, and my pesky toenail fungus than you will probably ever care to know.
In August 2008 my family relocated from Utah to the east coast for my husband’s new job as a professor at a lovely red brick university. Neither my husband nor I had lived outside of Utah. These last two sentences alone should make for lots and lots of entertaining reading.
I love comments (please make them). I love e-mails (please send them). I love shopping and eating out. I love summer. I love road trips and music that I can sing along with. I’m afraid of semi-colons.
This site began when I was writing as a hobby, and today I write for a living as a freelancer. Among other small jobs, I write the gift catalog for a famous cookie company. You can order your own catalog to read cover to cover here.
I hope you enjoy my humble website, and even moreso, I hope it inspires the would-be writer in you.
