A Writer’s Fear

by Lynn H Blackburn @LynnHBlackburn   A few years ago, I watched a live Adele concert. The lucky people who filled the venue were an enthusiastic audience. There were cheers, applause, and the occasional sing-a-long when she sang a favorite. I’m a fan so I enjoyed it immensely, but I couldn’t help but be struck by […]

How to Rekindle Passion for Your Writing

By DiAnn Mills, @DiAnnMills   Writers must have passion for their writing projects or no one else will. No getting around it.

Password: Truth

By Rhonda Rhea, @RhondaRhea   Password anxiety. I’m pretty sure that’s a thing. You’re compelled to choose seven characters, un-guessable, throw in some capital letters, add the name of a dead pet, sprinkle in a few lower-case letters, include some numeric representation, and, on the whole, the password should eventually grow and evolve into an […]

As Writers We’re also Ambassadors

Two-Pronged Attack for Crushing Your Goals

A new […]

The Serious Writer’s Year-End Assessment

By D.L. Koontz, @DLKoontz   As writers, we enjoy being our own bosses. If you could separate You-the-Writer from You-the-Boss in order to conduct a Year-End Review of your 2017 performance, how well would you do? Did you arrive in your office (kitchen table, attic nook) on time? Did you immediately start work or did Facebook […]

Pondering with a Pen

By Lucinda Secrest McDowell, @LucindaSMcDowel   As Christmas unfolds, perhaps it’s time for some pondering. You know, like Mary did after Jesus had been born and visited.
