Welcome to the Writer’s Corner.

My blogger’s name is “Mochateaoh.” It’s an unusual name, but since I live in the coffee-addicted Greater Seattle Area, it seemed appropriate. Actually, it sounds similar to the name of my previous hometown, Mukilteo (Muk-il-teo). Ah, yes, now you see it, right? Mocha-tea-oh! Mukilteo is a small town near the shores of Puget Sound just north of Seattle, Washington. Now we live in Tukwila, but I think I’ll leave the name as it is.

I’m a writer/poet, and in addition to digital photography, writing is my favorite hobby. (Use the tab at the top of this page to view some of my digital collages.) I started blogging on another blog a few years ago, and I liked it so much I decided to start my own blog dedicated to writing. I’m planning to post short stories, articles and poems that I write. You may select articles from the various categories and postings displayed on the right-hand side of this page. I also invite you to visit “My Self-Published Books”. Use the tab at the top and follow the links to Amazon.com. Writing is my passion and I’m motivated by encouragement from friends and family as well as my self-imposed schedule of trying to post something new each week.

Please share your comments and feedback. The first time you make a comment, it will require your name and e-mail address. Subsequently, this information is used only as identification, and it’s not shared outside the blog. If you agree/disagree with what I write, that’s okay, but I’m hopeful that you’ll offer constructive critiques. Help me learn what works and doesn’t work. If you’d like to become a follower of my blog, open one of my articles, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Follow.” Fill in the required information, click on “Done,” and then check your emails for a greeting from WordPress to confirm your choice.

Typically, when I sit down to write, I have a cup of coffee close at hand. So, pour yourself a cup, select what you’d like to read, and spend some time with me in The Writer’s Corner.
