From time to time I'll be sharing various writing & contest opps I come across & I'll include the source and date I'm listing it. Please take the time to verify the submission requirements, this site is not responsible for any errors.
And by the way, everything in life is writable about
if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination
to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.

So much to say and so little room to write - Grew up in the Bronx, NYC and went to school at JHS80, HS of Art & Design, and Fordham U. Lincoln Ctr campus. I always had an overactive imagination and parents who encouraged creativity and individuality. I am married to a terrific guy and we raised two extraordinary kids. My sister and I are real close. And I volunteer with my local ambulance corps.
Oh, by the way, I like to write.
