Meet Sherrey

Sherrey3_WPI’m Sherrey Meyer,  and I am a writer. I haven’t always been a writer, but managed at all times to pursue my love of words through reading and writing. Sometimes I get so carried away with my love of words I also proofread and beta read for other writers.

I grew up the middle child but it doesn’t seem to have caused any difficulty in carrying out my roles as a wife, mother, grandma and great-grandma. When opportunity provides, you’ll find me writing or reading. I love words!

My current work-in-progress is a memoir, the story of a Southern matriarch and how she ruled the roost with not so pleasant methods. On occasion, I have been lucky and written essays that actually were accepted for publication in anthologies.

My writing and proofreading experience reaches back to near age 12 when my publisher and printer father decided he needed some part-time help on several large government projects.  He trained me to proofread and edit, and on weekends and school holidays I had my own mini-office in my bedroom dedicated to my efforts.

Daddy was the source of my love of words.  Words have always fascinated me, but life has inserted itself along the way.  Now a retired legal secretary, where I used these skills, I now enjoy the time to focus on my passion for writing.

For samples of my writing, see the tabs labelled Published Works and Guest Posts under Writing Memoir.

  • Sherrey, I have enjoyed reading about you so far and I’m sure I will enjoy your future posts.
    I too had a troubled and complicated relationship with my mother [now deceased]. Keeping a daily, private diary has helped me to exorcise those demons and move forward.
    I hope that you’re also moving on. We shouldn’t be prisoners of the past.
    I will be a regular visitor to your brilliant blog.

  • Sherrey, thank you for visiting my blog and for the follow there and on Twitter.

    Both the name of your blog and your blog’s photo of a farm house in the country are appealing. They are so inviting and I look forward to strolling through your posts and getting to know you.

    Blessings~

    • Thanks for your comments on my blog. I too look forward to your visits here in the future and getting to know you. Happy strolling!

  • Gwen Bristol

    Sherrey, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your blog and your comments. You always lift me up.

    • Gwen, thanks so much! And I appreciate your blog and writing. Always a good tip to share or something inspirational. And I need both!

  • Sherrey, nice to get to know you. What are you working on now?

    • Hi Holly! Thanks for stopping by. Currently, I’m still drafting a memoir, hoping to finish the first draft before the end of 2013. This may require backing away from blogging and social media for awhile but I’ve recently had an epiphany that has taken my format in a new direction. I’m anxious to see it finished now — it feels right. What about you? Are you writing anything at the present?

  • Sherrey, congratulations on winning the “Written Acts of Kindness” Award via Kathy Pooler. It is lovely to see it go to a fellow memoir writer. I hope it brings you joy.

    • Cate, thank you for visiting here and leaving your note. I am so pleased that Kathy chose me to pass along the “Written Acts of Kindess” Award to, and it has already brought me great joy. I look forward to passing along that joy to someone very special when it comes to “Written Acts of Kindness.”
