Who is Sydney Hanson Mandt?

That’s the person I call me. I have been keeping journals full of thoughts, stories, poems and dreams since 1985, when I was 16 years old. My Father, Robert L. Hanson, instilled in me a love and respect for words – their power, their beauty, their reflection of truth. He enjoyed all kinds of word play, and encouraged that playfulness in me.

The Beginning. Again

Hello to all who visit here! Word Fertilizer is a place where I can share thoughts and creative writing. I have embarked on this particular web adventure a few times now, and then let my contributions slip due to life distractions.

So I start again. This time, with a writing studio to work in and with no full-time job to get in my way, I am ready to work more consistently on my writing skills and to learn new ways to share the products of my creativity. Shout out to my dear husband for his encouragement and support (financial, emotional, and technical).

I don’t know who is reading this. But I am glad you are here.
