I am writing answers to these questions posed by Trifecta as part of the Meet and Greet page.
- What is your name (real or otherwise)? Joanne Edith Roth (nee Marucci)
- Describe your writing style in three words. Finding it’s voice
- How long have you been writing online? 4 months
- Which, if any, other writing challenges do you participate in? None, yet.
- 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.
- What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given? Beautiful writing can and should be concise.
- Who is your favorite author? John LeCarre
- 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.
- Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt. Remember–it must have a third definition.
2: filled with awe: as
b : deeply respectful or reverential
3: extremely disagreeable or objectionable <awful food>”
- Direct us to one blog post of yours that we shouldn’t miss reading.
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
