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 Fear Talking by Tracy Krauss

It’s Just Fear 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. So it makes sense that this also applies to the writing life. To quote writer Jeff Goins, “Do it afraid.” Good advice. Some of the best learning comes outside our comfort zones.

5 Fears that Immobilize Writers by Steph Beth Nickel

It takes courage to parachute out of a plane, to ski down a mountain—and to write. “Why?” you ask. Writers must overcome the following fears—and so many more: Does the world really need one more book, blog post or article? No matter how many times we’ve asked and answered this question, there are quiet moments when many of us revisit

Worth the Risk by Pamela Mytroen

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

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.

Online Inspiration by Steph Beth Nickel

Online Inspiration by Steph Beth Nickel

Shh, I have a secret to tell you. Wait for it. I am an extrovert. I know. I know. You’re shocked. Despite the fact that this is apparent to anyone who has known me for, say, five minutes or so, I have only recently realized that I enjoy listening to a series of podcasts with the same host because I feel

The Long and Short of It by Pamela Mytroen

The Long and Short of It by Pamela Mytroen

Here are four mistakes to avoid in journalism and human interest: I. TOO LONG – the Interview. The editor of The Times sent me off on my very first article. With high heels clicking and briefcase swinging, I knocked on the door of a soon-to-be-100-year-old. I settled myself in her antique rocker and began firing questions. After I’d filled two
