Necessity, the mother of invention.

The need for fulfillment drives us to keep changing and re inventing ourselves. One of the things I love about writing is that it allows me to change hats by providing a buffet of different opportunities.

A poem can turn into a short story just by thinking a little deeper. That short story can lead to a novel that eventually becomes a play.

I use my writing to express all of my dimensions without locking myself into a corner by defining who I am by any specific style of writing.

I am a blogger, a writer of short stories and a freelance writer of articles that find themselves on the pages of many different publications. My writing has taken me from hoovering over a keyboard to standing behind a podium speaking about my passions rather than writing about them

No sooner than I get settled into selling my articles I get an itch to write in a new way. Yes, your friend Debra is about to embark on a new adventure that will combine my writing, speaking, knowledge of farming with my passion for food and.........not so fast.

Remember the first lesson you learn in writing is to show don't tell.

While you are waiting for further hints of my transformation, I want you to tell me how has your writing led to other influences. Maybe friendships, love, travel, hope, courage, joy or adventures. C'mon lets hear it. Inquiring minds want to know. What new and different road has your writing led you to?


  1. Good luck to you on your new endeavor.

  2. It's nice to see you back! Can't wait to hear about your new project. Writing has definitely taken me new places. I never thought I'd be doing school visits, inspiring children to write!

  3. I feel like writers are the most blessed people on earth. Our enjoyment comes more from the process than the money. Albeit making a living from writing is good too!

  4. Oh, how exciting! Can't wait to discover what it is!

    My writing has opened many avenues for me the last few years. It's amazing, and I'm thankful for it.

  5. Writing on my blog is most fulfilling! Since beginning almost four years ago, my writing has improved. (I can tell by reading old posts. lol) I'm counting on further improvement.

    I've also met the best people! We share this love of the keyboard and monitor; what used to be pen and paper. :) We talk about topics that range from A to Z. We learn from each other.

    It's a road that I am glad to be on.

    Best wishes on your new adventure. I'll be back to see what it is. :)
