Hello, blog readers. My name is Susan Korich. Yes, I am number four of the Paddle Creek Writers My beginnings were humble, my middle was humble and I am working on making my endings outrageous. I haven’t yet figured out how I am going to do that.
I like putting words together and painting pictures with them. Writing, for me is a solitary endeavor best performed with coffee and chocolate. I do not take writing for granted. I also do not take writing seriously. There is trouble afoot when I get serious about something. Most would probably liken it to obsession. It takes an inordinate amount of brain power to be obsessed and frankly, I don’t think I have that much to spare any more.
Of course, like my fellow Paddle Creek Writers, I found an outlet for writing when I was young. I also found an outlet in reading, drawing, painting, sewing, cooking and watching movies. I picked up a few more outlets over the years and can add quilting, cross stitch, beading, upholstery, piano, gardening and cat keeping to the list. You might consider me like a midcentury house. If I had more outlets I would probably blow a fuse. Come to think of it, I am more like a midcentury house in other ways too. The structure could use some underpinning, the insulation is subpar, there are more creaks and groans than there used to be and let’s face it, the old house is in need of a facelift.
What more can I say that wouldn’t bore us both to tears. If you want to know more about me and the quirky way I write, come back to this blog, add a few pithy yet complimentary comments and you will have a friend for life. If not, it won’t bother me since I didn’t know you were here to begin with.
