The agony of a writer

An artist and a writer will concur....what they do for a living can be either a blessing or a curse. We who must create, whether using words or paint or clay know that we do not choose our vocation...but that it is a calling, a quest...a need to do so. Often times our efforts are overlooked or unappreciated, but yet we surge forward in our desire to create with the hopes that our efforts will be embraced.

Fellow authors...how long do you generally wait to follow up with an editor-in-chief after you send a query letter out? Do you feel that the age of journalism (specifically freelance) is coming to an end?

To date, I have been shopping around an article on the ancho chili pepper as well as a children's story about a princess and her talking cat. If you have any questions or would like to inquire on these projects...please feel free to contact me. I'd be more than happy to discuss them.

Just who is Rose Lucivero?

     Hello, and welcome to the official blog for journalist and author Rose Lucivero. I'd like to thank you for your interest and stopping by. I have always been a fan of the written word, from a very young age. In fact when I had attended elementary school my teacher asked my mother to deter me from reading because my nose was always in a book. Needless to say, my mother did not adhere to that request, and today I am often found with a book in my hand or writing something from my own creation.
     I have been published in News Day's newspaper section 'Kids Day' where a recipe of mine had been featured back in the mid 1980's. From there I had several poems published in the Sachem School District journal in 1993 and 1994. With the advancement of technology and the Internet boom I've  had over 20 articles which focus on the paranormal and paranormal investigating published on the web sites of several paranormal groups. In 2011 I've been given the opportunity to host blog tours on my personal blog for fellow author's Jessica Chambers and Cassandra O'Sullivan Sachar.
     I have now ventured in to the world of writing freelance as well as collaborating on a cookbook with my mother. My favorite project to date is the on-going children's story about Princess Rosie Sunshine and her cat.
     If you are interested in following my personal blog where I jabber on and on about anything and everything, please feel free to do so. I'd love to hear from you there as well.
