Chris, the story reading ape has been kind enough to allow me to introduce myself to an unsuspecting world of readers.
Thank you, Chris.
Hello Chris and readers of the TSRA blog.
I thought it might be a good time to introduce myself. I’m a writer who has been doing a long (40 years) apprenticeship in the craft and art of being a poet and storyteller.
I write in a relatively unpunctuated free-verse style, and focus on the capture and close examination of thoughts passing by and of imagery that suggests itself in the natural world around me.
Recently I attended a writing retreat away up North in the Queensland Rain Forest and came away having concluded a few things:
- My apprenticeship is done. I consider myself a journeyman, now.
- I am now officially in a state and stage of transition. From Psychiatric Nurse to Writer. From Writer to Author.
- Not forgetting – Publisher.
In short, I committed to career transition in the lead up to an official retirement from my profession.
