“I’ve always felt that my ‘style’—the careful projection onto paper of who I think I am—was my only marketable asset, the only possession that might set me apart from other writers.” ---William Zinsser

Join Skyline Writers in the Cuyahoga Valley - August 22, 2009



Join Claudia Taller and other writers for a retreat from the world in the Cuyahoga Valley. Skyline Writer's annual conference takes place on Saturday, August 22, 2009, at Hines Hill Conference Center, our home away from home, just north of Peninsula. Details are forthcoming. You owe it to yourself to spend time with your writing and enjoy the peace of the flowing river and the protective canopy of trees. A day in the Valley is sure to inspire you to go further with your projects and ignite possibilities within. The brochure for the event can be found at http://www.skylinewriters.com/ after June 1.

Dear Claudia,

If I had a dime for every time I have said in my life that I was born a writer and I was born in a library, I'd be a millionaire right now and not still earning my living as a legal secretary. I know "I was born a writer" too, but I have yet to take the leap of faith that you must have taken--to write as a livelihood and to fulfill your soul. Having once known you in your "logical" life, I am awed by your courage.

For the past five years or so, I've experienced more frequent thoughts of pursuing the writing life. How fortuitious that I have come across this blog, "ingniting possibilities"! Oh how beautiful when the mysterious orchestral stirring of subtle organizing energy fields arise in the soul!

Unfortunately I only became aware of this event at this moment and I will not be able to attend tomorrow. However, I am sure this is a wonderful sign and I'll look forward to becoming reacquainted with you in your new spiritual consciousness. Until then, I'll peacefully look forward to meeting and sharing with you and other writer souls in Northeast Ohio.

Best regards, p roberta!

A Winding Road - Writing

My Photo
My book, "Ohio's Lake Erie Wineries," an Arcadia production, explores the history of island and lakeshore wineries from the mid-1800s through today. I write travel, memoir, profiles, book reviews, local interest articles, and fiction. My writing is always of discovery--whether it's journaling, book reviewing, letter writing, or sharing an experience of life. I have written two novels and am working on a third novel and a memoir. I am passionate about sharing what life has to offer with others. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron woke me up to a sense of possibility--life is too short not be enjoyed by living deeply and well. I created Igniting Possibilities, a conduit for creativity workshops and events, in the hope of guiding others to realize their full potential. The Word Lover's Retreats at Lakeside, Ohio's Chautauqua community, help writers find their voice and direction.
