Trifecta Meet and Greet

I am writing answers to these questions posed by Trifecta as part of the Meet and Greet page.

  1. What is your name (real or otherwise)? Joanne Edith Roth (nee Marucci)
  2. Describe your writing style in three words. Finding it’s voice
  3. How long have you been writing online? 4 months
  4. Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in? None, yet.
  5. Describe one way in which you could improve your writing. I could improve my writing by reading the entries of my fellow Trifectans.  they are amazing and I’m humbled actually receive commentary from so many.
  6. What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given? Beautiful writing can and should be concise. 
  7. Who is your favorite author? John LeCarre 
  8. How do you make time to write?  I make it part of my daily routine, though often I shift things around to ensure uninterrupted alone time.
  9. Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. Remember–it must have a third definition.  
    1: inspiring awe
    2: filled with awe: as
    a obsolete : afraidterrified
     b : deeply respectful or reverential
    3: extremely disagreeable or objectionable <awful food>”
  10. Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading.

  1. I’m just returning from a bit of a trifecta hiatus, and decided yours was the profile for me this week. Having also read your “about” page I can say, holy cow, you are quite accomplished.

    I am in the thick of my family days — I have two homeschooling girls and a little man who opted for public kindergarten — so I’m quite jealous that you can actually carve out space to write uninterrupted.

    And now I am going to wander on over and check out the blog post above.

    ps. as one of four girls, I think it is pretty funny that you had 5 of one sex while your sibling had 5 of the other. As an auntie of many before I finally had my own, I can say that nieces and nephews, while different from our own children, most definitely allow us to scratch the itches to which we might otherwise not have access. I have a feeling you would agree …


    • Yes I agree, Karen, and thanks for choosing me this week! I won’t say that my writing time is uninterrupted but I appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with my guilty pleasures: music, writing, knitting, playing, walking the dog, cooking and thinking. Joanne
