About Me

Welcome from Marion Spicher

Grandmother, mother, wife and friend.

Life in the Pacific Northwest acreage is surrounded by results of my husband’s love of landscaping.  A visit to our decks, either front of back,  magnifies the quiet and enfolds us in nature’s beauty.

Writing is one of my passions. During the pursuit of a writing career, I’ve learned talent alone doesn’t hold a reader’s attention. The words are honed by knowledge, application of the craft elements of writing, and practice, practice, practice.  And the work needs the qualified critical eyes of other writers, readers, agents, and editors.

So aside from writing and enjoying family and friends, I read. And keep my brain nimble using computer/cell phone games & sudoku.

I love comments, and conversations, so please share yours with me.

      I’ll be knee deep in a writer’s conference on April 28 through May 1 in Bellingham. But I would love to see you! Please email me at mspicher@hotmail.com and I will follow up … after a very busy time until Mid May! As you can see, I have not been diligent with my blog. Hope all is well in your world. Love you!

      Your comment about my blog is appreciated. I really must get back there and post something! I don’t like to post just for the sake of posting, but to share something other writers would find interesting or instructive.

      Let me re-iterate that your tax presentation was very helpful. Hope you found something else to enjoy in our damp Pacific Northwest!

    Earline, how lovely to have you stop by again. I recognized the fox logo and went back to check all my comments, and there you were! I’m heading back there to reply now. And I will shortly visit your blog.

    If you wish to have an email blurb letting you know I’ve posted, click on the email subscription at the top right of this blog. Easy to delete if the post doesn’t interest you. Saves you from checking when there is nothing new. Post every Mon, Wed, Fri, but will miss Fri and Mon next while at the SIWC conference.

    My goal is to post links of interest to writers. Please let me know what you are writing, and the writer’s organizations that you belong to, if any. I would love to know more about you. And I hope for both of us, it’s true that the new 80’s are like the 60’s used to be. I’ll be checking your blog, and if you live within an hour’s drive or so, perhaps we could put our heads together a time or two.

    Marion, been reading and enjoying your Blogs…have one, but it remains disjointed 🙂 Several attempts at novels but nothing completed as yet and I need to as I’m one year from my 80s even though I’ve been in an “attempt mode” since my teens. Enjoy the Conference, not attending this year.
