Thought I'd reach out to other RVers who are actively writing and publishing (or have plans to publish). Anybody out there?

I've been writing forever and publishing nearly as long, but find more and more RVing writers as we travel. We've been full-timers since 2009 and I'd love to hear about what other writers have been working on. Hope you'll share your writing endeavors here!

I used to write and edit articles for a now-defunct magazine called Toyhauler Magazine. That was fun and lucrative while it lasted.

Now I mostly write Amazon reviews for the items we use on the road.

I was a journalist for years, wildlife protection and sports mostly, and photos. After a few years, decided to write only fiction. Have lots of non-fiction, and four novels, one SS collection. I still write, and have always been freelance.

I once wrote a complete novel, at night, sitting by campfires, Florida >> Georgia >> Blue Ridge >> PA >> NY >> MA >> finished draft in Vermont. Took seven months [emoticon] was quite a trip!!!

I would if I knew how... Where's this setting? Or maybe I was offline?

Sorry... I went in a matter of seconds from feeling fairly web-savvy to web-idiot [emoticon]

It's great to see there are so many fellow writers here!

Found it! I feel so much better now [emoticon] Open to PM.... Sorry for the learning curve. (And to think I once wrote a novel where hacking was a key element in it!)

I went thru a phase and had a couple of articles in outdoor type magazines back when people still read that way. Semi-technical kind of stuff.

I take my laptop when camping and write novels. I find the process so much more entertaining, fulfilling and engrossing than reading. I self publish for Kindle on Amazon which is a really easy process even though no one buys the books. My plans are to write two books this winter.
