Like an Oreo by Steph Beth Nickel

When I was thinking about middles, the ever-popular Oreo cookie came to mind. (Advertising at its best since I don’t particularly care for them.) I wonder what would happen if we tried writing a scene or an entire chapter that would fall smack dab in the middle of our story.

10 Excuses I Hear Most Often

10 Excuses I Hear Most Often

Thanks to Brenda Wood for sharing Lucy V. Hay’s post. 1. “I wish . . .” Stop it. Just stop it. You want to write? Do it. You want to try your hand at another type of writing? Do it. You want to change genres? Do it. DO IT! You get the gist. Life is too short. You might die

Take Charge of Your Writing Life by Tracy Krauss

Take Charge of Your Writing Life by Tracy Krauss

For most of the writers I know, finding ideas to write about is not an issue. Finding the time to craft these ideas into something worthy of sharing is another thing altogether. It takes effort. It takes discipline. It takes a certain amount of dogged determination.

A Time and Place to Write by Jack Popjes

A Time and Place to Write by Jack Popjes

You’ll never find time to write, but you can make time. And when you make time, you need to make a place as well. Productive writers know that time and place tend to be connected. It has to do with what actors call body memory.

Ten Steps to Prepare for Your Writers’ Workshop by Pamela Mytroen

1. Create an appropriate title for your workshop. Your title is like a menu item. It must be short and concise but appealing and descriptive to writers as they peruse the list of workshops at a conference. “The Life of Pie for Writers” was one of my recent workshop titles. It worked well visually.

Seeing Our Mistakes from a New Perspective by Steph Beth Nickel

Seeing Our Mistakes from a New Perspective by Steph Beth Nickel

Like most people, if not everyone, I can think of a number of times I’ve wished I could press rewind and have a do-over, especially if my actions or words cost me something: money, reputation, peace of mind. But that’s not the way life works. That’s not the way God works.

The Power of the Spirit in Our Writing by Janice Dick

The Power of the Spirit in Our Writing by Janice Dick

Do you ever wonder if the hours, days, weeks, and years you spend at your computer arranging words is making any difference whatsoever in the grand scheme of life? I do. Since 1989, I’ve spent much of my time writing fiction. A lot of people don’t understand what I do, or why, but I keep writing because I think that’s

Who are You? by Brenda J. Wood

Who are You? by Brenda J. Wood

You are a writer. Just what does that look like? You introduce yourself through your books. You are not super organized unless it comes to plotting. You are a pantser and make up your story as you go. You thrive on deadlines. Deadlines are your enemy. Your favourite topic is your latest novel. You are anti-social and hide behind your
