All Because of a Story by Pamela Mytroen

What is your favourite Christmas tradition? Decorating the tree, exchanging cards, or even the simple greeting of “Merry Christmas”? Did you ever stop to think how these ideas took hold and came to be so cherished? Storytellers have had much influence in not only restoring long lost Christmas traditions but also in totally re-inventing them. Following are two examples of authors

Remember with an Elegy by Violet Nesdoly

Remember with an Elegy by Violet Nesdoly

A wonderful way to remember someone after they have died is to write a poem about them. Such a poem of remembrance is called an elegy. The Poetry Dictionary defines elegy: “A poem for someone who has died; also called a lament and threnody. Elegies are love poems for the dead, tributes and offerings to loss” – John Drury, The

Remembering Those Gone Before by Janice L Dick

Having been raised in a Mennonite home with pacifistic traditions, I’ve had a difficult time coming to terms with Remembrance Day and all it stands for. I am more thankful than I can say for those who risked or gave their lives so I can live in peace. I can recite “In Flanders Fields,” and it fills me with emotions.

It’s Just Fearing Talking by Tracy Krauss

It’s Just Fearing Talking by Tracy Krauss

My colleagues have posted some excellent articles this month dealing with common ‘writerly’ fears and how to overcome them. Nothing worth doing comes easily or so it seems.

Worth the Risk by Pamela Mytroen

Do you ever worry that after you have invested days, weeks, and months researching and writing a manuscript that it will not be publishable and that you will have wasted your time? That is my biggest fear about writing. Time. It is so valuable and there are no guarantees that you will see a return for the sweat, sacrifice, and soul

Free to Write Fearless by Violet Nesdoly

Free to Write Fearless by Violet Nesdoly

Chances are good if you are a writer or have ever considered writing as a career or avocation, you’ve had some of the following fears: People will see what a bad speller I am, and terrible at grammar to boot. What I write will show me up as simple, unsophisticated, boring, etc. I’ll work long hours on a story or

6 Unconventional Writing Tips by Steph Beth Nickel

6 Unconventional Writing Tips by Steph Beth Nickel

GET SOME SLEEP This is a case of do what I say, not what I do. (I’m writing this post at 11:36 PM the day it’s supposed to go live.) Most of us think more clearly and are far more productive if we’ve had adequate sleep. For some, that means getting eight hours every night. For others, six or seven

Writing Schedules

Writing Schedules

“How do you get it all done? How do you work on multiple writing projects at once?” The question came from an acquaintance I had met several times at a nearby writing conference. She apparently thought I had it all together as a disciplined writer.

Cool or Crisp by Brenda J Wood

Cool or Crisp by Brenda J Wood

Right now, it’s cool to have a platform, but has your writing taken second place? Is it no longer sharp and crisp? I ask this question. “Do you really trust God with your writing career?” You answer. “Of course I trust God.” I ask. “Then why do you spend hours every day jumping on the latest platform bandwagon?” You answer.
