I started writing Bookbeat about two years ago. I originally planned to keep the focus on books. But ideas came along and I found myself blogging about many different aspects of writing.
I also founded a site Creative Writer US as a resource for aspiring and veteran writers. And because a lot of ideas came from people I met close to home, I began my Covering Florida blog.
I did these things while freelancing for nine different editors and a few nonprofit sites. And I kept up my commitments for workshops and presentations.
Meanwhile, my books came out and my publisher expected me to hit the road.
In an effort to save time and to permit a broader field for subject matter, I decided to combine the sites related to writing into the blog, Creative Writer US.
If a topic relates to words or communications, we'll cover it there.
All material published at the original CWUS site will still be available, as will articles and musings previously published here at Bookbeat. As of February 1, 2007, the new Creative Writer US blog is the official home for both those sites.
Covering Florida will continue as is.
I hope you keep coming to see me, and I hope you’ll let me know your thoughts.
