I live in New Albany and have written primarily for my own enjoyment for many years. I may be ready to “come out of the closet” so to speak — to share my work and offer it for critiquing. When I recently saw Southern Indiana Writers mentioned in the Courier Journal I decided to work up my courage and apply for membership. I can send you samples of my work. I especially love writing about the spiritual insights I gain while riding my horse in the woods. I dream about writing a children’s series about true dog rescues I’ve been involved with that have happy endings. (I’m a retired teacher in love with the purity of children’s books — their message isn’t obscured by too many words and the words chosen are matched with lovely images.) I am very inspired by nature and occasionally write simple poetry.
I suppose I am also inspired to join because my aunt, Lorraine Cazin from Minnesota, the member of a writer’s group, recently died. I was touched by the number of writers who submitted tributses to http://www.legacy.com after her passing. Belonging to the group seemed such an important part of their lives and so bonding.
Thanks…looking forward to hearing from you soon.
