The Tuesday Experiment by Janice L. Dick

The Tuesday Experiment by Janice L. Dick

  I love a fresh start. It’s an opportunity to improve, to avoid pitfalls from the past, to review and make new plans. This past year I’ve poured a lot of my time and energy into writing weekly blogs on my website in an attempt to connect and gradually grow a following. Writing blogs was never something I thought I’d

The Memoir of Autobiography by Brenda J. Wood

The Memoir of Autobiography by Brenda J. Wood

December 10 is the deadline for this page, the same day my son was born so many years ago. He came a bit earlier than expected, as I remember it. His version of the story is quite different. Pretty much every memoir we write is like that. You, the author, see it and write it from your perspective. Our participants,

Looking Back to Look Forward by Tracy Krauss

Looking Back to Look Forward by Tracy Krauss

As 2015 comes to an end, it is natural to reflect on the year that has gone past. I’m one of those people who likes to set goals. I like making lists and checking things off as I accomplish them. This year was no different. Word count, publishing goals, marketing strategies, professional development … all of these categories made it

Writing When Life Gets Crazy by Jack Popjes

Writing When Life Gets Crazy by Jack Popjes

Shortly after I agreed to write this blog post on the topic “Writing When Life Gets Crazy,” it did. The saying “It never rains but it pours” is apt for my life right now. I received invitations to speak at 7 events taking place within 18 days. Our chronically ill youngest daughter took a turn for the worse and needed

Writing When Life Gets Crazy by Pamela Mytroen

When isn’t life crazy? Job, family responsibilities, and news events crash against us like the wind batting and shaking our homes. If that’s not enough, then the media whispers ceaselessly around the cracks of our windows, letting us know that we are not beautiful, wealthy, or powerful enough. And yet we must take time to write through these storms. How?

Nothing is Wasted by Violet Nesdoly

Nothing is Wasted by Violet Nesdoly

For most of us writers, working demands a certain amount of predictability and solitude. But life doesn’t always deliver that. Sometimes it gets crazy. Then the question becomes this: Do we continue to write or do we drop the pen and surrender to circumstances? To begin to answer these questions, let’s look at some of the things that might hinder

12 Ways to Carve Out Writing Time by Steph Beth Nickel

12 Ways to Carve Out Writing Time by Steph Beth Nickel

Sometimes life gets crazy busy. I know. I know. That’s an understatement. However . . . If we’re going to actually write (and not just dream about “someday”), we have to carve out some time. Here are a dozen suggestions on how to do so:

Add Colour to Your Writing by Janice L. Dick

Add Colour to Your Writing by Janice L. Dick

When my son arrived in Lima, Peru, while on a mission trip some years ago, he was struck by the riot of colour in the city. His email said, “It looked like a kid had gone crazy with a box of crayons.” Without naming any colours, he had created a picture of the scene I will never forget. How can

Colour Me Gracious by Brenda J. Wood

Colour Me Gracious by Brenda J. Wood

Writers’ groups and their goals are as varied as the words on a page. They range from the tender and all-forgiving to the meanest criticism in the world. I’ve been a member of both types of groups and I definitely prefer the kinder kind. Unfortunately, some people thrive on shredding your work to pieces because “their type of writing is

Adding Colour—Literally by Tracy Krauss

Adding Colour—Literally by Tracy Krauss

As an artist as well as a writer, I know the importance of colour. Yet I’ve read a few manuscripts with a distinct lack of it. Rather than “fifty shades of gray,” perhaps we should be looking for fifty words to express exactly what we envision.
