Although poetry is one of her greatest passions and has been the mainstay of Linda's writing for many years... screenplays, novels, short stories, blogs, and non-fiction articles... have filtered in, as well. To Linda, dedication to the craft means there is a constant learning, sharing, and creating cycle that threads through her writing life: always learn new things to improve your skill and boost your creativity; share time and expertise with others to promote an exchange for new ideas and mutual achievement; continue to practice your creativity to foster your own style and create your own unique voice.
As a writer, we all know the trials and tribulations of life give substance to the work we produce – but it also stands in the way of how much work we produce... at times.
IF we give into life’s demands and table our work, shelve our passion, put on hold our writing desires – we will eventually come back to it at some point along our journey.
As writers, we write because we have to.
