After a long writing hiatus, which included 15 years composing jewelry, I’m back to writing. I created a little newspaper in second grade that won me a Kennedy half dollar. I wrote poetry and music in my teens. As a young adult I wrote some short stories, one that placed 33rd in a Writer’s Digest contest and one that won a Midwestern writer’s contest — go figure, I’m a New Englander living in California. I made inroads on several novels that never came to fruition. Then I took a jewelry class and went down that rabbit hole of adornment and art fairs. I used my writing for my limited marketing and I even edited the newsletter of the bead society I joined. Writing always lingered. Then I lost my basic creativity and didn’t do anything for a while. Sometimes in life, you stop and ask yourself what you loved and misplaced. My Muse, Lucy, tapped me on the shoulder and cleared her throat.
