Hello there and welcome to Breise Breise, which is Irish for Extra Extra. My name is Loretto, and I am originally from Portumna, County Galway in Ireland. I have lived in the US since April 4th 1993.
I am an ex-middle school language arts teacher, present day Pilates instructor, and a permanently frustrated writer who wants to be a famous author when she grows up. Hence this blog and the self-published books.
Writing is like playing the piano, isn’t it? You’ve got to practice everyday to improve the skill. Hemingway stood when he wrote, Colm Toibin writes in a uncomfortable chair, and I write in a comfortable, cushioned computer chair. Maybe I need to get out of my “comfort zone?” Would that help improve my writing skills?
Think of this blog as my effort to think out-loud and show evolution of thought whilst practicing my writing skills, from a very comfortable, cushioned computer chair, located in the kitchen that I never cook in. It’s true, just ask my husband. I like to write, so I have self published a few books, and I certainly love to be a bit twee and melancholy about Ireland. You’ll be able to navigate this blog using the search bar, (type in Lumgullion, and see what happens) or just scroll through the recent posts on the left of the Home Screen.
Hope you enjoy the blog and remember to leave a comment or follow if you feel so inclined! Thanks for visiting, and please visit often!
