Pen in a Bottle

Writer Emerging


Welcome to my writers site "Cherenancy", Pen in a Bottle: Writer Emerging, a display for my new and old writings. Enjoy your visit and don't forget to leave a note (link in the side bar.)

What is "Pen in a bottle" all about???  Think about a bottle floating on the sea with a pen in it...

In 1985 I found my work to be childish.  Figuratively I bunged my pen into a corked bottle and threw it out onto the sea of life.  I stopped writing and turned to photography and other arts to explore my creativity intending to return to it by age 35, the age of philosophical maturity.

In 2003, when I turned 37, I found my pen beached on my desk, ready to use (actually, it had morphed into a computer keyboard by that time) and I rediscovered the joys of writing.  The author in me is emerging matured and ready to embrace you.  

Finally, I put together a book of my collected works (pictured above) which is ready for sale.  Please click on Book Shop on the side bar for ordering instructions.
