My name is Yordie Sands. I’ve written several blogs of my own and written for several other blogs. I’ve done different types of writing over the years from non-fiction to fiction and been published in both print and online magazines.
I’m also a photographer and like to think of myself as a pure photographer. My photos have been published in several print and online magazines, and I’ve been paid for a few of my published works.
I have some education in writing and literature, enough to make me increasingly aware of how much I don’t know about the craft of writing. I was educated in classical American punctuation, but prefer logical punctuation.
I’m also dyslexic and this seems to make me a slow reader. I struggle to read aloud, even my own writings, and I find it helpful to read paragraphs backwards before reading them from the beginning. OTOH, I find it easy to write; words flow out of me easily but I have to force them in, one word at a time. Go figure.
I launched this blog to document the process of discovery as I write my first novel.
