A Note from Hope:
I’ve worked within a slice of the publishing industry for over a dozen years now. This insider’s view can be an advantage and other times it is purely an obstacle between me and the desire to create and publish. Scratch that…the desire to create remains, but the passion to publish wanes and wells. For now, however, the desire remains and the ideas keep coming.
I’ve published fiction and non-fiction and feel connected to both categories. I tend to read more non-fiction and my years of journaling certainly direct my first thoughts toward real time writing. But I love the freedom of creating characters and setting them up for situations that either I’ve been through or ones that I just flat out want to see unfold in the strange and unpredicatable way fiction moments do as they are being written. I find the process mystical and frustrating and fulfilling.
