Thank you for welcoming me to the Travel Writers group! I have traveled all my life and am now living in Portugal. My Ph.D. (Art History) uses travel literature (18th, 19th cent.) as a source. I write about living in foreign places and retuning to my place of origin in my blog http://clarapaulino.wordpress.com.
Great, and thanks for welcoming me to the Travel Writers group, Amy! Right now I am gathering adventurous souls to join me and my Writing from the Heart...in the Heart of France group for a wonderful six-day journey into the heart of Champagne, and into our own hearts...information is available here: http://essoyesschool.com and also on my blog, Writing from the Heart, Reading for the Road http://wingedword.wordpress.com
"I haven't done anything novel-like yet, but I really prefer as Anne Lamott calls it, to pen the "shitty first draft" and just get the words out, then I can go back and edit, tweak and revise it to death."
