My Writing

As soon as I was old enough to put pen to paper, I dreamed of becoming a writer. Throughout my school years, I wrote countless stories, poems, essays and research papers. I crafted humorous story lines, outrageous plots, and draft after draft of half finished novels. Then one day everything changed.  I “forgot” that I was a writer. I don’t know when exactly, but somewhere in the midst of work, marriage and parenthood, I stopped writing.

Then, a few years ago, I read about NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month – and suddenly my creative fires were rekindled. I spent every day of that November writing the World’s Worst Romance Novel. With a plot full of holes and minimal character development, the manuscript was lacking in every respect. I didn’t care — I was writing again!

NaNoWriMo provided the spark, but I wanted motivation to keep the fire going.  That’s why I started this blog.

At first glance, Bright Tuesday might not seem to have a clear focus.  It is part journal, part essay writing; sometimes humorous, sometimes serious; at times thoughtful and other times light.  For me though, it’s simply an opportunity to share my writing, and by extension to share a part of myself.

Thank you for reading it.

  1. Maybe you could write a weekly column for your local paper. Phyllis Hollenbeck used to do that on travel for the Prescott Courier. Not much money but some experience….


  2. Your writing strikes a chord in my own life. I share the same struggles you have and am encouraged to see you move forward boldly with this blog. You are a good writer! I not only can relate to your words, but in them, I find inspiration for my own writing. Thank you!


    1. Thanks for your kind words. It’s always a treat to hear from a “kindred spirit.” I hope you will continue to find a reason to visit here! 🙂 I also hope I have the opportunity to read some of your work soon. — Kristine
