Profile Information

Who I am:
I have been a professional technical writer, editor, and illustrator in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia for about 20 years. I have tried to focus on either writing or art, trying to give up one for a while and then the other, but find I cannot give up either. So I am working toward transitioning eventually to a freelance career that includes both. I enjoy writing about philosophy, books, how faith works with real life and exploring all aspects creative non-fiction. I enjoy writing for my blogs and am preparing some pieces for some contests. I also participated in National Novel Writing Month this past November (2013)and completed a first draft of my first novel.

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Carol!

Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!

I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers!

Hi, Carol:

    Good for you for taking up the blogging challenge!

Belated thanks, Carol, for your comment and your interest in Gertrude Stein and WW2, which also fascinates me. The radical differences between Germany and France concerning the survival of Jewish people: In France, three quarters of Jews survived, most of them like Gertrude and Alice, in the country, helped by friends and neighbors and French officials who quietly ignored the German edits... Some of this is found in the excellent study by Charles Glass, Americans in Paris: Life and Death under the Nazi Occupation.

Glad to be friends on She Writes!

Hi, Carol. I transferred by husband's pet store blog from blogger to WP. If you want to see how the transfer went, I post both links below. Compare by date to see how it looks. I had a few formatting issues and a few photos that weren't pulled in, but it really wasn't bad, and very simple to do.

Hello Carol,
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog on my website about my mother who is living with dementia. I worked with Hospice as a counselor and social worker for seven years, and worked with many volunteers. As mentioned, I agree that it is a profound  way to give back, to help people transition to another life. Looking foward to checking out your blogs/articles as well. Take care!
