MY WRITING LIFE
I've been invited to contribute to the Village Writing School newsletter each month. My column is called The Whole Writer. In it, I’ll be chatting about ways to keep motivated, energized, organized, healthy, and happy. I’ll write around the edges of writing. About making it easier to live a balanced life. I use my motto Survive Smartly, Age Intelligently as a guide to ideas for the column. You can read the first column by clicking here.

BOOK UPDATE: My memoir is revised and ready for the next step: seeing if I can get it published. This book is a tale of how I achieved my dreams while fighting my limitations as a polio survivor.
I drew from the wealth of information in my daily diaries from 1950 to the present that document what it was like to live with a chronic illness and still get out in the world and do something worthwhile.
If I can help any one of the millions of people who struggle with a chronic illness, then the angst of re-living my life in a memoir will have been worth it.
We are a unique tribe who want to be understood and appreciated.
We do that for each other.
