A writer’s life is a sedentary version of a “free solo.” And if that sounds strange, then I’m guessing you aren’t spending your days in the pursuit of the often illusive writing success. A publication, any publication, is the lifeblood of a writer. And sometimes we have to wait a long time.
My essay Peaks and Valleys recaps my struggle to find my writing voice with the invaluable help of the Community of Writers in the California Sierra Nevada. I’m honored to be among this great group of writers in Omnium Gatherum Quarterly.
