I started this blog on September 21, 2009 to track how many days it would take to establish myself as a professional Writer in New York City while transitioning from seven years spent living in Australia. Two and a half years later, in September 2011, I re-located to midtown Manhattan. And in February 2012, I landed the full-time writing gig I set out to get.
My days now are spent immersed in technical writing while most of my evenings are focussed on one of many projects: poetry, screenplays, short-fiction, non-fiction or anything else I am obsessed with at a given moment. Such as harp music or breakdancers. I also like to run around New York City.
Since starting this blog, I’ve lived on two different continents and in eight different residences. I’ve had five jobs, lost six people I loved, divorced twice and had about six nervous breakdowns, give or take.
Since the FollowMeToNYC jump-off, I self-published three poetry volumes, scripted and shot one short-film and had the honor of being nominaed for a Pushcart Prize by Short, Fast and Deadly. My work has been featured in both digital and print publications, and I have had the amazing experience of connecting with other Artists all around the world.
Love to you, yours and ours.
