Over 30 years ago, I wrote as a hobby on and off. I became more consistent with writing as a hobby in 2005 when I started my blog and have continued to write posts. Although I do not write everyday, I have increased my volume of writing and write several times a week.
In 1989, I was a reporter for a student newspaper, The Racquet. I gave political analysis as well as writing a headline article about Wisconsin possibly passing a minimum wage in the spring of 1989. In the last decade, I also wrote for Law Blog Writers, LLC. I have tutored and helped high school and college students improve their writing for various assignments and projects.
I wrote two fictional stories. One of those stories is 14,600 words in length; the other fictional story written is 5,600 words. I continue to blog and am writing another fictional story.
I joined Poets & Writers to improve my writing first and foremost. I want to be able to publish and earn some money (doesn't be a lot) through writing. I understand from briefly viewing entries to hire writers that I need to write a longer story than I have ever written before.
