I’m No Shakespeare

 

I’m not being falsely modest. But I’m not a writer like Shakespeare, never expect to be, never want to be. The reason: I can only be who I am.

For a long time, I refused to call myself a writer. I wrote well as a student. As an independent consultant, I wrote articles for professional publications and used them as marketing pieces for my business. I even wrote a book. But I never felt comfortable calling myself a writer, never mind an “author.”

Group Writing: The Wisdom of Authors

 

It finally happened to me last week. There was a spectacular wreck in my neighborhood two doors down from my house – the type that gets everyone outside to watch. (They are truly rare on my street, which is a half-mile long dead end, and this happened in the middle. How the driver got up to the required speed in an eighth of a mile is something everyone still wonders.)

You know some people in your neighborhood, and you do not know others. Introductions were being made among those who did not know each other. One guy who lived across the street and four doors down moved in about three months ago. We shook hands and exchanged names.

A couple of years ago my wife self-published a book. It did well enough that we decided to pay to have it professionally published in a second, expanded edition. We’re gearing up for a re-launch and before I start dropping $5000 checks for media-packages and publicists I was wondering if you could help a guy […]

  I woke up this morning to hear of the death of Pat Conroy. In my opinion he was not only one of the best writers about the South, the low country of South Carolina in particular, he was one of THE great American authors and story tellers. His well known books include The Prince of Tides, […]

Going on a decade ago, I noticed a new book prominently displayed in Costco. It was called The English Rose.  I examined the attractive cover–and immediately turned away, because the author was Madonna. The Madonna of “Like a Virgin” notoriety had penned a book for preteen girls. I didn’t need to look any further, and I […]
