Nicole (standwhereistand) | 33 comments Mod
My name is Nicole and I am a writer. my day job is a videogame PR and Marketing professional, but my passion is writing fiction.

I've published 5 short stories, finished two novels and am as work on my third.

I live in the SF Bay Area with my husband and 3 dogs.


message 2: by Bryan (new)

Bryan (bryanthompson) | 9 comments I'm Bryan. I'm a motivational speaker and a freelance graphic designer. My first love, however, is writing. In a previous life, I was a PR director and media specialist for a nonprofit organization, where I wrote various articles for nonprofit magazines and newspapers.

I have recently completed my first novel, The Dreaming Highway, for which I am actively seeking an agent/publisher.

I live in Springfield, MO with my wife, our two daughters, and my dog.

Thanks for creating this group.


message 3: by Dan (new)

Dan (akagunslinger) I'm Dan. I'm a computer programmer and compulsive reader. I also have a degree in Art I rarely use outside of the odd graphic design project for friends. I've written a short humorous (I hope) fantasy novel I periodically dig out and work on.

The project I'm working on now is a throwback to 30's pulp magazines. A few of the regulars down at the used book store and I are writing pulp stories ala Howard and Lovecraft.

I live in the tiny town of Bloomsdale MO with my dog. Maybe we should change the name of the group to "Older Writers and their dogs."

message 5: by Charissa (last edited Apr 29, 2008 04:12PM) (new)

Charissa (dakinigrl) Hi, I'm Charissa. I spent the years between 1995 - 2000 writing seriously, during which time I was published in a few literary journals and local anthologies. My genre of choice at that time was prose-poetry. I self-published a collection of 69 prosepoems and did a small reading tour around Northern California. During that time I lived in Marin and studied with Tom Centolella, who had been a student of Denise Levertov.

Now I live in Petaluma and I am returning to serious writing after a long haitus, during which time I have been a visual artist. I work as a freelance graphic designer, artist, and crafts person. I am also a full time single mom with a teenage daughter.

Currently I am working on a series of creative non-fiction pieces based on my rather unusual and adventurous rags to riches life. I also write essays on contemporary culture, erotica, poetry and songs. My other big project is post apocalyptic literary fiction. I would love serious feedback on my work, especially anything new that I post.


message 6: by Caitlyn (new)

Caitlyn (caitlyn_hunter) | 2 comments Hi everyone. I write under the name Caitlyn Hunter. In real life, I'm a teacher, which is the main reason I publish my romance novels, which are often sensual, under a psuedonym. I write poetry and books for younger readers under my real name, though I've never gotten up the courage to submit any of those.

I have several more romance novels finished and I really need to quit procrastinating and submit them to...someone! My sister is an author too and we're working on a novel based on our great aunt's life.

My husband and I recently moved back to the southeast after living for 8 years in Maine. Yes, I'm one of those weirdos who love cold weather and snow. We now live in the mountains of western North Carolina. We're looking for a house and Judy, the first thing I'm going to do when we get out of this apartment is get a dog and probably a cat too!

Thanks, Nicole, for the invitation to join the group. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Caitlyn


message 7: by +Chaz (new)

+Chaz Thank you Nicole for inviting me to this site. First off I am not published. I do have a historical fiction I have been working on for four years (130,000 words so far and not done) I’m from the Seattle area, lived in California, Tennessee, Virginia, Japan, Egypt, and Southeast Asia and now Ohio,(military you know). I too look for feed back and honesty from those who read my writings. In talking to a lady in South Africa I learned I have made a number of mistakes that tells me that I must start from the beginning and rewrite the whole damn thing,(good thing I love this torture). I write short stories as well. I will look at all of the writings as I can. I am experimenting with a little Poetry and will foolishly put it on my site
Peace
Charles



message 8: by Kim (last edited May 05, 2008 10:02AM) (new)

Kim Cox (kimcox) | 5 comments Hi! I'm Kim Cox. I live in Asheville, North Carolina, and I've been published in articles (very few), short stories, one full length novel and novellas. My first novel is a romantic suspense titled SUSPICIOUS MINDS and I have two novellas, each published in separate anthologies, HAUNTED HEARTS is in the ENCHANTED HOLIDAYS anthology and GET OUT OR DIE! is in the ONE TOUCH BEYOND anthology. They're both paranormal mysteries with some romance. I have been published online and in paper in short stories - once in a Confessional magazines. I have an article at Yourinformationcenter.com - now free -- titled CREATE YOUR OWN PERSONAL WEB PAGE. You can also find a couple of free shorties and articles at my website. I prefer writing fiction. I have many works in process from full length novels to novellas to short stories, including the third novella based on the main character in the two anthologies listed above. I hope to make a full length book out of these novellas eventually. I'm actually trying to get out of writing romance and more into mystery, suspense and paranormal.

Besides writing, I'm an unemployed college student (ever since the textile plant I worked at as a Production Planning Assistant moved to Honduras). I'm enjoying college and look forward to graduating next year. I'm an honor student so far. I will be getting an AS degree in Office Systems Technology, a diploma in Medical Office Administration and a level 1 certificate in accounting. With the degree I hope to get a job at the VA Hospital near my house or at the college to which I now attend.

I've been married almost 23 years to Lee, who is a chainsaw artist (you can see his art at http://www.leeschainsawart.com). I have two grown sons and one grandson. We also have a cat and a dog.

Oh! I also design and maintain websites. I have about 7 now including mine and my husbands.

Hertzan Chimera (hertzanchimera) ...oh, older writers? I think I read the title of this group too fast and thought I'd signed up to Odder Writers.

Anyway, I'm here now, so let's see for how long. I'm what you call a 42 year old attention deficit hyperbolaemic bullshit merchant from across the pond in good old Blighty.

I've been writing psycho-erotica and other dark forms of grue' since about 1985 with my first prose pieces published in Dreams & Nightmares of New York. There's a more recent New York connection, too, as that's where the publisher of my forthcoming novels bukkakeworld and planet of the owls (July 2008, Silverthought Press) are based.

Those who care to can check out my details here on GoodReads. I'll post some sample links, too, as I see you have a sample links thread already on the go.

Cheerio

message 10: by Amy (new)

Amy Hi. I'm Amy and thank you for creating this group. I was shying away from the others I joined because of the swarming domination of 13 year olds....not that there is anything wrong with that.... =)

I am a very lazy writer because I don't actually write; I think about writing...A LOT.
I started a blog so I could get back in the swing of writing daily and I, of course, don't keep up.
What is it about writing that is so damn easy to procrastinate? Anyway, nice to meet you all.


message 11: by +Chaz (new)

+Chaz We work on our own and were crazy. Who else would lock themselves up away from the world and create a new one on paper with no guarantee of being published?

message 12: by Maya (new)

Maya Irena (mayairena) | 2 comments Hello, my name Maya. I'm 20, currently a second year student majoring in Arch..

I've never had anything published in my life (except several poems and short stories in my school magz, if that count)

I love to write, but mostly I keep them to myself, sometimes I show several of them to family and friends..

Lately I've been thinking to send several of them to some magazines, my friends and fam keep telling me that it worth a try :)

Currently I'm writing a young adult novel for a writing contest in my country, the winners will get their books published!!

I'm so glad that Nicole invited me to join this group, now I can learn a lot from you all!


message 13: by Lord' (new)

Lord' Williams (lordwilliams) | 3 comments Hello everyone, my name is Irving Lord'Williams, I was born and still live in Brooklyn, New York. I am a young 50 year old who loves people and love to write characters who breaths. They're like you and me, they live multi-dimensional lives. I've written a few novels and short stories, currently published one, 'Shadows of the Heart'

I'm down to earth, try to help if I can, and love meeting people.

God Bless

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Hi all!

Me in a nut shell: Constipated writer of fiction, not so constipated journaler & blogger, obsessed gardener, avid reader and Coastal NJean here! I'm an eclectic, creative & happily married woman who's been through much in her 30 something years! I'm a stay at home wife (since 2004) as a result of extensive physical health obstacles.

My being disabled w/out children isn't the equivalent of having the plague or mean I'm some kind of alien life form to which no one can relate to or vice versa! As the old saying goes, "Never judge a book by its' cover!"

Glad to be in the company of fellow 'Older' writers!


message 15: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary Hello, everyone. Nicole, thank you for starting this group for Older Writers--though you still qualify as a young writer (from my perspective). Since the days when my mother read me Golden Books, I dreamed of being a published writer. It took a long, long time for that dream to come true.

By day, I'm a coordinator at a community college. By night and during odd moments and stolen hours, I write novels and plays, usually with a Southern gothic flavor (making use of those years spent with difficult relatives).

Here's to good company!




message 16: by Kia (new)

Kia Groom (whodreamedit) | 2 comments Hello all! I found this group whilst browsing for writers' groups, and was attracted by the lack of 13 year old girls. Not that there is anything wrong with thirteen year old girls, but as I am not one, I felt it best to leave them to their thing.

I'm a 21 year old college student currently completing an arts degree (how completely useless, but also completely wonderful) at a University on the west coast of Australia. I'm majoring in Philosophy and Religion and minoring in Writing (although I may switch to a double major). Originally I'm from the UK but I moved to Australia when I was 10.

Currently I've not published anything as I am not convinced anything I've written is quite good enough, yet. I am starting to consider submitting to a few literary journals, though (I think I'd possibly drop dead if I ever managed to get published in McSweeney's - so there's a dream). I tend to write poetry, extremely short short stories and prose-poetry since I like messing about with form. I have a few older pieces up on goodreads, since I'm trying to avoid putting on-line the stuff that I am seriously thinking about submitting to journals.

I love horror, teen fiction and kooky, experimental books (I loved House of Leaves, though was unable to finish it because I couldn't read it unless someone else was in the house...and if someone else was in the house, they generally got annoyed if I started to read...). I'm a big Lovecraft fan nursing a childish soft spot for the work of J.K Rowling.

I really look forward to reading some of your work and having you guys take a look at some of mine! :)

Take care,

~Kia


message 17: by Nicolle (new)

Nicolle Atchison | 2 comments My name is Nicolle and I live in the Seattle, WA area. I am an Accountant by day and a writer at night. Well mostly a procrastinator and then sometimes a writer.

I have two VERY ROUGH drafts adult fiction novels (thanks to NaNoWriMo) sitting in my desk draw growing cobwebs and two children's stories that I randomly make attempts to publish.

My hobbies include collecting books on "how to write a book" and I also enjoy using my kids and spouse as a distraction from writing, which I am very successful at.

Hello all!




message 18: by Tim (new)

Tim (timcampbell) | 17 comments Hey Nicole,
Your story is so ... normal among writers. I too am a financial person, a CFO in the health care industry and a procrastinator and a NaNoWriMo veteran. And I'm too a bibliophile, though my collection is mostly signed first editions. Yet I've written two novels, one released in 2003 and the other in August of 2008. So, it does happen. And the family will turn on you and begin to expect to read what you write and it's hardest to tell them that you have nothing new done. That's how they eventually help. When you say adult fiction, what genre do you mean? Welcome to the group.
Tim


message 19: by Letitia (new)

Letitia | 2 comments Nicolle, I am also in Seattle, WA. Edmonds actually. I live here during the summer and NJ during the school year.

What genre are you books? I am in the process of launching my debut novel: historical fiction.


message 20: by Maureen (new)

Maureen Brunner (maureenbrunner) | 8 comments My name is Maureen Brunner. I am 35, a High School Librarian, a married mother or three, and compulsive reader. I have published two library research articles in professional journals, both of which were republished in "The Blue Book on Information Age Inquiry, Instruction and Literacy."

I am currently writing a YA fantasy novel, and just getting out of the planning and creating stage. I am a little nervous about taking the plunge to put it all together.

I practice by writing vignettes here and there,
and would love some feedback from time to time.


message 21: by Sean (new)

Sean Little (seanpatricklittle) | 5 comments Ah, geez...I hate writing these things. Which is strange considering everyone's favorite topic is themselves. (Don't try to deny it...you know I'm right.)

I am a struggling novelist. I put out my first novel in April '07, and I'm working on the end of my first draft for my second novel. I like sci-fi and fantasy and I wish I had better chops so I could do crime fiction. My first novel is fairly noir-esque. It's got elements of crime fiction, but it's very much a fantasy novel. Check my website (www.seanpatricklittle.com) for more details.

I enjoy writing. I enjoy the headaches and self-doubt that go with it. I love the feeling of a keyboard beneath my fingers.

I am currently unemployed, as I have just relocated to the Madison, WI. area with my wife and daughter and two useless cats. In what spare time I have when I'm not writing, I play guitar and bass, though I've never played in a band, and I do some freelance illustration and editing work. I am addicted to British TV comedies.

Any other details are irrelevant, and let's face it--if you REALLY want to know something, you can either check my website or just email me. Why bore everyone on here?


message 22: by V Crowley (new)

V Crowley | 2 comments I am a product from the incessant winds of the LLano Estacado, a granddaughter of cotton farmers, a dark comedy, a faint scent of laughter, a burnt orange sunset, and a full moon all wrapped up tight in a little shell of a human being. My life is comprised of five handfuls of travel, mixed with slinging hash at the nearest dive, and utilizing a political science degree by giving to the service of community. Anything else is unnecessary to know except I am not published and I hope to have nothing left behind when I exit this world.


message 23: by Tim (last edited Jul 16, 2008 11:26AM) (new)

Tim (timcampbell) | 17 comments V,
One must leave something behind if it's only footprints on a beach; you're fragrance, a sense of you absence, the echoing of your words. Besides, in all the public you've assisted with you PoliSci degree and every bowl with flowers you've served surely there will be memories, if only for seconds ... if only occassionally. And when you are published, and surely with you word skills, you will be, then like the rest of us, you'll leave behind books gathering dust in libraries around the world. Welcome.


message 24: by Tim (new)

Tim (timcampbell) | 17 comments Amy,
I have a friend who is an award winning poet. I've invited her to join GoodReads, but she hasn't accepted yet. But Google her and visit some of her sites. Linda Marie Van Tassell. She is listed by various incarnations of her name. And she will correspond with you if you drop her a line.

message 25: by H.J. (last edited Jul 22, 2008 07:20PM) (new)

H.J. Swinford (hayleejalyn) Hi everyone! My name is Haylee! I'm a 21 year-old college student at Texas Tech English/Creative Writing major and Philosophy minor.

I've been writing since I could hold a pencil and have recently finished the first novel of a series I've been working on for about ten years. I was Editor-in-Chief of my high school newspaper in Fort Worth, Texas. I've written many short stories, none of which I've had the courage to submit anywhere (yet), and a couple novellas. My favorite genres to work in are fantasy, young adult and historical fiction. I'm looking forward to a life of hard work and little pay. Yay for writing!

I'm excited to be a part of this group and look forward to everything I can learn here!

message 27: by Kevin (last edited Sep 18, 2008 08:17PM) (new)

Kevin | 14 comments Greetings everyone,

My name is Kevin and I live in Eastern Pennsylvania. Like all of you, I suspect, reading and writing are a big part of my existence. Until recently, I kept out of the social side of both.

So I've been looking for groups that generate some good discussions, but haven't grown too large and unwieldy. This seems like one of the best candidates I've seen yet.

If anyone wants to talk books or critique group members' writings, I'd be happy to participate.


message 28: by Leslie (new)

Leslie Hi!
My name is Leslie. I work as a medical coder, but my passion is books. Reading and writing. I've had several short pieces published, short stories, personal essays, non-fiction, how-to. I used to have a monthly column in a local newspaper.
Right now I am working on a memoir. I have about 50,000 words in the computer and at least that much written that I need to put in the computer. I'm writing in first person, present tense and the book starts when I'm four and I think it will end when I'm eighteen, so there are lots of challenges. I also write in my journal constantly and write poems when the muses arrive with their gifts. Can't take that approach with prose of course, or I would have very little written, but there doesn't seem to be any alternative when it comes to poetry, at least for me. I'm looking forward to being in this group.


message 29: by Haras (new)

Haras Hey, im Sarah Sky. I really liked that people posted the links to their writing, so i decided to join this group. i was also part of the reading as writers group that mysteriously disapeared one day, so here i am.

Presently i am a costumer for a community circus, a cello player and an aspiring tenor sax player. I like spectacle and gold. I used to publish a personal zine for 10 years that actually paid my rent at times, selling as far as malaysia. Now i am 25 years old and living in asheville nc, trying to recover from a prolonged writers block. Most of my writing lately deals with the intrinsic worth of writing and the value of ones voice in this world.

Not really looking to get published, but just kindle something in people that happen upon it.

Mark (marklaskowski) I'm Mark.


message 31: by Heather (new)

Heather | 2 comments Hello! I'm Heather, 25, and was previous a Writing Arts/English (sort of a hybrid) major in college.

So far, I have been published in numerous literary magazines and have put out two books, found here: http://wordsdance.com/nothingunrequit... and here http://anhingamagazine.blogspot.com/


In a couple weeks, I will be releasing my third chapbook (flash fiction and prose poetry) from Paper hero press, as well as releasing a full length book from them sometime in 2009. You can get a sneak peek of this book here: http://achilleschapbook.blogspot.com/...

The title is "FACTS OF COMBAT: if your head was blown off I would still know you from the birthmark in the shape of your own shadow, on your left hand"


I look forward to getting to know everyone here and their work!

-H.


message 32: by Neva (new)

Neva (pcalico) | 11 comments I've taken the group title seriously - I'm 50. Have just started fiction. Have written academic stuff forever.

The novel I'm working on is a combination of genres, and therefore might end up as literary fiction, or postmodern, or something similar.

I'm looking for other writers interested in complex commentary on literature and writing inside their novels. Anyone?


Novel overview: Literary Fiction: An Annotated Novel (very temporary title)

General idea: The novel is about 2 Authors, 2 Readers, and a Character in each of the Authors' novels. One Character is unhappy with the book she's in. She leaves that novel (#1) and enters Novel #2. This creates havoc for the Authors of the two novels, the readers of the two novels, and confusion among the characters.

Settings: Main novel: Boston, current time.
Novel #1 - London 1850s
Novel #2 - Boston 1850s

Novel includes annotations regarding the historical aspects of the work, the locations, and the characters who were based on historical figures.

I plan to index it as well - I've always wanted indexes in my literary fiction!

Naturally, there is much still to do - and it's fascinating to "live" in Boston in the mid-19th century.





message 33: by Leslie (new)

Leslie Wow--I've never heard of anything like that--very original!! And I love the idea of the index. I wish every book had one. This sounds like a really good book!!


message 34: by Paul (new)

Paul Hi all.

I'm Paul. Born in Wales in 1953, lived in quite a few places during my life, starting of as an Army brat and wandering around a lot in my youth, doing this and that.

I've been in Malvern, mid-sized town in central England for about 25 years now. I think that these days I only tend to roam in my imagination - it's much easier than doing it physically!

During my life I've ben a student, a botanist, a shopkeeper, a Civil Servant, a landsacape gardener, window cleaner, analyst programmer, network manager, web developer, IT contractor and consultant. Currently, and probably for the remaining years till retirement, I work for Worcester College of Technology, a Further education establishment. I run a study centre for them, which is a combination of IT support, librarian, shopkeeper, crowd control and teaching assistant. I'm also taking a Certificate of Education course which will qualify me to be a teacher of adult literacy (and anything else that I am able to teach by virtue of previous experience or other qualifications).

I wrote my first short story when I was 5 - it was called the Ravens of Beacon Hill, and involved the revenge of a noble bunch of ravens on the nasty starlings that kept stealing their food. I think in America you might call starlings grackles.

When I was 12 or 13, at my request, my folks bought me a Smith Corona portable typewriter. I happily churned out dreadful pastiches of Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane for a few years before turning to science fiction and horror.

In the late 70s and early 80s, besides getting married and fathering 2 children, I went the semi-traditional route, being a gardener, window cleaner and barman to pay the bills, and hammering out stuf on my typewriter for three hours a day. Anyone remember the joys of creating carbon copies?

I gave up (money needed) and took to writing fiction in various computer languages instead, and spent the next 25 years in IT. Recently (3 years ago) I formed Blind Samurai Films with another Goodreads member, Roger Cottrell. We produce generic film scripts - sci-fi, action thriller and horror, and also short stories and novels. I'm pleased to say that I am now back to writng happily. I've written three film scripts (one in each genre) and am curently working on one sci-fi novel and co-writing another. We also publish, via lulu.com, our own anthology of SF and horror called Dark Side of the Sun. As well as working for Worcester Tech for the rest of my working life, I expect to write for the rest of my life. I've always read, every day, no exceptions, ever, and I expect to carry on doing that as well until I shuffle off this mortal coil.

Karen L. Hi I'm Karen L. I'm 48, live in urban Pittsburgh, married with three teens whom I'm homeschooling. I've always loved writing and have been writing since I was 15. I write mostly poetry. Lately my poetry is like verbal snapshots of people and images. I am working on a series of very nostalgic poetry about childhood memories. Friends have been encouraging me to get my poetry published. Yet I almost don't know where to begin. I'm hoping to get to know other mature writers and get some good constructive criticism and guidance.

I'm Lacy. I'm 28 and a writer/editor in Denver. I'm working on a YA fantasy novel and also on getting my blogging off the ground.

I review YA novels and talk about my experiences with writing over at TheSpiralNotebook.com. Feel free to drop by and leave me a note!

message 40: by Renee (new)

Renee (rjmiller) Hey everyone. My name is Renee, and I am a mother, daycare provider, housekeeper, cook, dog trainer, booger picker, bum wiper, and oh ya, I write. I've been diagnosed-I mean described as crazy. But when I take my meds I'm really a likeable person.

I have written all of my life, well almost, I had to learn to hold the pencil first. I've written everything and anything. Only recently (march/08) did I decide I wanted to do this full time. It's not full time yet, but I'm trying. I have published two children's books and I also write horror fiction, which is what I love the most.

It's nice to have a group of mature people to converse with. Maybe I can learn how to be grown up too.

Mike: Very funny stuff. I think we'll get along just fine. Or we'll hate each other, either way it should be interesting.

Sounds like fun.

In case you've never read Jasper Fforde's 'Thursday Next' novels... I would highly recommend that you take a peek at 'The Well of Lost Plots.'

Dana Miranda (unmoored) hullo, my name is dana and i am eighteen, forgive me for not being technically that old however i find other writing groups not as serious or limited to teen writings which i detest at times. my writing consists of mostly philosophical ideas being brought together with the stream of consciousness. i am currently writing my first novel called Nostalgia.


message 45: by Tim (last edited Sep 09, 2009 07:28AM) (new)

Tim (timcampbell) | 17 comments Okay Dana, here you go. I've been collecting ideas for years in a file I call "I am therefore I think." I beleive Decartes will forgive the paraphrasing. In this file, I philosophyze on any topic that happens to jump into my head. Death penalty, same sex marriage, re-elect no one movements, religion. Pretty much anything is fair game. Try it, you'll like it. Oh, and the age thing, I've found that there are some really old spirits in relatively young bodies.


message 46: by Stacy (new)

Stacy Greetings all!

My name is Stacy. I currently work part time in customer service. I'm hoping to turn my passion for writing into a full time job. I started writing fiction a little over a year ago and am working on several short stories and novels, (listed at www.MyFictionalWorld.blogspot.com

I have epublished:

"Twitter Troubles" a short poem
"My Oldest Memory" a non-fiction short written in the child voice. Both are on Smashwords and Scribd.

Hoping to complete and release three short stories by the end of this year. Good to meet you all.


message 47: by Jaimey (new)

Jaimey (jaimeygrant) | 4 comments Hello, everyone!

I'm Laura; I write under the name Jaimey Grant. I write traditional Regency romance. I have four books out, all self-published. I just turned 30 in October, am a wife of 11 years, a stay-at-home mother of two and have decided to participate in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year, writing sci-fi/fantasy instead of romance. That's about it. Lovely to "meet" you. :o)
