A Celebration Story by Violet Nesdoly

A Celebration Story by Violet Nesdoly

It’s gone missing! It was 12:25 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16, when we left the rest stop on Highway 97 to continue traveling south toward Prince George. We were on our way home from Dawson Creek, B.C. after spending three weeks with our daughter’s family. The picnic table we’d found, hidden from the road by trees and within sight of […]

Celebrating Technology by Steph Beth Nickel

Celebrating Technology by Steph Beth Nickel

Connect to the Internet and you’re bombarded with devastating world news, political issues that polarize and inflame, unbelievable local scenarios. I stopped watching the TV news and reading the newspaper many years ago. I found it just too overwhelming. And while all these things are true, I believe that we, as writers and as Christians, live in exciting times. Just […]

Celebrating Family by Janice L Dick

Celebrating Family by Janice L Dick

I first saw this picture on a card I received years ago from someone with a sense of humour that matches mine. I displayed it in my house recently when my extended family came for a reunion. About a year ago, my husband and I offered to host a reunion for my family. It was to be a time of […]

Celebration by Brenda J Wood

Celebration by Brenda J Wood

Ah yes, celebrations. Don’t we love them? Confetti, balloons, music and dancing, eating and drinking, all because we met a deadline or finished a manuscript. Maybe we even got the final edit over with and the actual book is delivered to our front door. Ah, yes; celebration indeed. Hold your horses.

Summer Productivity All Year Long by Tracy Krauss

Summer Productivity All Year Long by Tracy Krauss

For many writers I know, summer is a time for slowing down, relaxing their schedules, or even taking a writing hiatus altogether. Not so for me. As a public school teacher, summer vacation is my time to ramp things up. Inevitably, I set pretty lofty goals for myself. While I don’t always meet every objective, I usually do get a […]

That is the question. This month we’ve been discussing writing while on vacation. Do you take a break or use the slower pace to do some writing without day-to-day distractions?

Writing While on Vacation by Pamela Mytroen

Writing While on Vacation by Pamela Mytroen

I have noticed that I do more creative writing in the summer than at any other time of the year. By looking at the reasons, maybe I can learn from my motivations and apply them to the winter months to increase my writing.

Give Your Writing a Vacation by Violet Nesdoly

Give Your Writing a Vacation by Violet Nesdoly

Are you going on vacation this summer? Are you taking your writing with you? Even asking such a question says something about the vocation, or avocation, that we love. For what nurse, accountant, librarian, or barista takes work with them on vacation? Yet as writers we do this all the time—or feel guilty if we don’t. Why do we do […]

12 Reasons to Attend a Writers’ Conference by Steph Beth Nickel

12 Reasons to Attend a Writers’ Conference by Steph Beth Nickel

Although I was only able to attend the Saturday sessions of Write Canada this year, as always, I was abundantly blessed. Here are a dozen benefits of attending a conference or even a one-day workshop: Focus exclusively on writing and related topics.

“Summertime, and the living is easy …” by Janice L. Dick

Ha! Obviously, George Gershwin had a different perspective of summer than I do. Summertime living is busy and enjoyable, but not necessarily easy. There is yard work to do, added to the usual routine. When the living is busy, our writing can sometimes reach an impasse. Not that we’re blocked by lack of ideas.
