The Sunday Spotlight on Two Drops of Ink

Sunday Spotlight: Gene McCormick

Editor’s Note: 

Here we are again, it’s Sunday and time for Sunday Spotlight. Each Sunday we will spotlight a published contributor from our list. The idea is to reintroduce these wonderful and talented writers/authors to our audience, especially new followers that may not have noticed their writings here on the site, and to give them a boost in exposure. 

Gene is a unique writer in that he’s very humble about his work. He’s one of the most prolific writers on our list of contributors. As editor, I always research writers when they submit to us; I do it for a variety of reasons, but in some cases, I’m quite shocked about the body of work some of our contributing writers have out there. Gene is one of those writers. Even if you Google his name, you still have to dig a bit to find the totality of his body of work. So, this week I give you Gene, and I hope you’ll check out his links, his sites, and follow his work. He is a very talented writer.

At Two Drops of Ink, we proudly collaborate with other writers. Most bloggers work hard to brand themselves and push their own sites, and that’s fine; however, here at Two Drops of Ink, we have created a unique and powerful epicenter for collaborative writing. Along with our writing team and the blogs we post, we accept submissions of all genres (see our submissions guidelines). This is a huge win-win for our literary blog and for writers that are either well established and are looking to expand their audience, or relatively new writers looking for exposure. We dedicate this page to those writers, and their works, that were good enough to publish on our blog. Congrats to them. Please take a moment to scroll down through the list and enjoy and share their writing.

  1. Gene, you are indeed prolific and talented! (Sometimes the two don’t co-exist with each other 🙂 ). As I read your poetry, I felt much like I have felt many times, especially as a restaurant patron in the Big Easy. You poetry transported me back to not only the sights, sounds and smells which in and of themselves intrigued me, but to the people whom I always enjoyed watching and eavesdropping on (Shhh!! Don’t tell anyone) as I invented lives for them that sometimes may have been more interesting than their real ones, and sometimes not! Anyway, your poetry whisked me away to a lovely afternoon 🙂 Thank you!
