My Journey with The SOP and Working with Judyth Piazza

My Journey with The SOP and Working with Judyth Piazza

By Vincent Gonzalez

Since the beginning, my experience with Judyth Piazza and The SOP News Network has been rewarding. I enjoy working with people who show commitment in everything they do, making me feel less of a contributor but instead a valued family member.

Judyth Piazza has been a fabulous mentor, the wisdom and knowledge she has shared with me has been useful in so many ways. Being a relatively young writer, Judyth has provided me with a plethora of knowledge and resources for the benefit of my writing projects. Her recommendations and insights have further enabled me to improve my craft. With her support, not only have I enhanced my writing capabilities, but gained a better appreciation for the overall craft.

Being a college student, (especially under the current world climate we find ourselves in) I find myself at odds with the functions of the world surrounding me. Not so much for the natural world but for how our society functions in general. As a wildlife major, my appreciation for wildlife and nature is beyond words. I yearn for a world at peace with nature and people. Anybody who reads my writings know that nature has a huge influence over my work, I like to think of nature as a character rather than just a setting.

A huge portion of writing happens for the most part by surprise, which is what I enjoy about the whole writing process. In my opinion, surprise is everything. The joy of writing by impulse is the spontaneity of it all, the surprise that just so happens to come with it is the result of you finally opening your heart to the possibilities out there, allowing me to further enjoy the process of writing. In the end, it enables me to attempt to begin to understand the power that words actually wield.

While working with TheSOP.org and Judyth I feel that I`ve been provided with an outlet to further express my opinions and ideas. With their support, I`ve been able to write articles on a variety of topics; additionally helping me by allowing me to express my view on a number of different issues. I stand today; having a combination of perseverance, patience, and integrity gained by what life I`ve lived so far. My hope is that my writing reflects that, as I attempt to reflect these values in everything I do.
