My first reader is a poet, playwright, fiction writer, editor, teacher, and friend. His latest collection of poems is called Seasons In Love.
We met online after he left a comment on a guest blog post of mine for Writer’s Digest.
I sent a note to thank him four years ago. We’ve been working together ever since.
He reads my early drafts, and I read his. We push and prod and nudge each other to write better sentences.
I no longer scribble or type a word without hearing his “voice in the swirling wind.”
