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

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

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

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

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

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.
