Happy New Year! Happy New Blog!

4 Jan

Happy New Year!  Καλή χρονιά!  I suppose it’s rather cliche to start a blog in the new year, but I’ve been talking about doing this for a while and a new year seems to have given me the impetus I needed.  Let me tell you a little about why I’m blogging and what you’ll find here.

I’m looking forward to sharing my journey as a writer and editor with you.  I’m currently working on a few different projects.  One of the ones I’m most excited about sharing with you is my memoir about growing up Greek-American.  Whether you’re Greek, Greek-American, a hellenophile, or interested in cross-cultural exchange of any sort, you’ll hopefully find my upcoming project interesting and informative.  As this blog gets underway, I’ll collect inspiring quotes by Greek writers and philosophers, let you know about upcoming Greek events and news, and share some memories with you that might just fall under the category of embarrassing.

Having worked as a professional writer and editor for over ten years now, I also have a multitude of other interesting projects I’m involved with.  Feel free to check out the clips section to sample previous articles on such obsessions as the Beat Generation, The Hold Steady, traveling, and visual arts.  Whenever I publish something new, I’ll be sure to share the news with you in the blog.

I also hope this blog will be encouraging and useful for fellow writers and those interested in the writing process.  You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what I’m thinking about as I write.  Some of the entries will deal with the practical issues of style and substance and other entries will mean to inspire, support, and create a community of writers and readers.

Please feel free to leave your thoughts and questions for me, about what I’m writing, and about the writing life in the comments section.  I’d love to hear what you’re writing and reading too!

Looking forward experiencing 2011 with you!

Luv ya heaps,
