Update on the Writing Life

Hello! I have a fabulous update for you from my writing chair. My shiny Bachelor of Arts degree from Pacific Lutheran University came in the mail last week. I am so excited about that. I’ll be starting at Goddard College in July for my M. F. A. in Creative Writing.

I have updated my Resume, so please take a look.

I’m working hard on Divantinum: Shattered Dreams. This project began in NaNoWriMo 2009 as an idea and has blossomed into a trilogy that has consumed my life. I love the characters and the world, so that is wonderful!

If you haven’t already, check my Facebook page out. And connect with me on Goodreads - I love sharing good books and finding others!

Write on,

Darlene

Great News! June Update 2014

Hello from Washington state! I hope everyone is having a great spring and is gearing up for a wonderful summer. I have great news – in May, I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with my B. A. in Anthropology and minor’s in Creative Writing. I graduated Cum Laude.

Above is a picture of me and my mom, Ulli Wagner, at the commencement ceremony at the Tacoma Dome. (Did you know that the Tacoma Dome is one of the biggest wooden structures in North America? How cool is that?) 

I am also excited to announce that I’ll be attending Goddard College in Port Townsend for my M.F.A. in Creative Writing starting in July! 

This is a great transition for me and one of the steps I laid out in my writing plan in 2001. I’m happy to say that I’m progressing nicely with the game plan!

I’m working hard on my Science Fiction trilogy Divantinum, and will be taking it with me to Goddard as my MFA project.  

I also want all of my clients to know that Reilley Writes is back in action and open for projects! 

Thank you so much for all the support–your letters and kind words have meant the world to me. 

Write on!

Best,

Darlene

Update 2014

cropped-darwrites-logo.jpg

 

Hello!  I hope you all are having a fabulous start to the new year.  I am.  As many of you know, I’ve been steadily accumulating a massive pile of knowledge to apply to my writing.  I’m taking even more classes this Spring and should graduate with an B.A. in Anthropology with minor in Creative Writing this Summer.  I’ve also made the decision to go for my Ph.D. in Archaeology!

This is going to be amazing for my writing!  I’ll be focusing on non-fiction and fiction.  So…be prepared for a bit of change.  I love archaeology and writing.  And this way I’ll be able to marry the fields!

I’ll be writing while I’m gone for a field experience, but the internet connection is spotty.  I’ll post an update when I have details on the blog we will be doing from there–so keep an eye out! Also, stay tuned for more updates after I return from my field experience!

 

Write on,

Darlene
