For myself, if I didn’t write fiction, I wouldn’t be able to breathe. Well, yes, that’s an exaggeration, but writing is a daily function for me and has been for a long time. If I’m not working on a novel, then I’m writing short stories, or exploring new characters that come whispering into my head. I write novels and short stories of the supernatural, ghost stories especially.
In nonfiction writing, I have received some fine rewards. I wrote feature stories for various newspapers in New York and Connecticut for about five years. Interviewing and writing about local professionals, artists, speakers, and business owners gave me a rich foundation.
I work as a freelance copy editor as my day job. I have several years editing health, business communications, magazine and news articles, newsletters, and advertising materials. In medical/pharmaceutical copy, I have over fifteen years of experience. See my editing website: http://paulacappaedits.weebly.com/ . I also am editing fiction: short stories and novels.

I am a member of Goodreads and moderately active on Twitter and Facebook.
Here’s a thought about writing that stays with me. From Willa Cather …
“Every fine story must leave in the mind of the sensitive reader an intangible residuum of pleasure, a cadence, a quality of voice that is exclusively the writer’s own, individual, unique.”
