Hi, friends. I’m Veronica, a writer from northern California. Grant proposals, reports, blogs, social media posts, profiles, pamphlets, brochures, homeschool curriculum, non-fiction books – whatever it takes. Those are all for other people. I’m currently working on a novel and a collection of poems. Those are for me. I used to tell people I wasn’t a poet until I realized how silly that is. To love
words is to be a poet.
Why did I decide to join the Poetry Marathon? I saw the post for it on Facebook and thought, “Why not? What better way to shake loose the creative cobwebs?” I also did it because I’m not a joiner, but I need to connect with others. This seemed like a good way.
I’m a wife, a mom, a writer, a San Francisco Giants fan, a dog lover, a woman of faith, a friend, an orphan, a sister, and a devotee of the Oxford comma. And that’s just a start.
I don’t plan to do anything special to prepare for the marathon. I’m not a stranger to all night writing sessions, so bring it on!
