Welcome subscribers! If you’ve made it to the page, I know you must be pretty serious about your writing since you’ve stuck with my newsletter all this time. :-) I hope it has and continues to be helpful to you in your writing journey.

Please post your six-word sentence OR a haiku on how you’ve changed as a writer over the past 18 months. Then bookmark this page and come back periodically to see what others have had to say.

Then we can do it again in another 18 months and compare our answers!

Here’s mine.

18 months ago (for me), it was April 2010. Here’s how things have changed, in haiku form.

 

Beginning writer.
