How Dark Times Enhance My Writing by Janice L Dick

How Dark Times Enhance My Writing by Janice L Dick

It was the fall of 1994. My father had just been diagnosed with cancer. Apparently the disease had been at work for a long time. At Thanksgiving, we travelled to my parents’ home in Alberta for a bittersweet weekend. Meanwhile, my mother-in-law, who had been feeling poorly for years, was told she had a brain (more…) →

Spring Ahead: Take Your Writing to the Next Level by Janice L Dick

Spring Ahead: Take Your Writing to the Next Level by Janice L Dick

This time of year, when the days lengthen, the weather warms, and the birds sing with more joy, is a great time to blow out the cobwebs on our writing. Sometimes we get bogged down; at least I do. We struggle on, doing our best to do our best. Spring has a special way of (more…) →

Cultivating a Love of Writing by Tracy Krauss

Cultivating a Love of Writing by Tracy Krauss

Consider the Future I grew up in small town Saskatchewan, surrounded by a sea of grain fields and nurtured by an agricultural mindset. To make a living as a farmer, one has to have tenacity in the face of uncontrollable obstacles. Grain prices fluctuate, markets can collapse, and nobody but Jesus can control the weather! (more…) →

Word of the Year by Brenda J Wood

Word of the Year by Brenda J Wood

The latest fad is to choose a word to define your coming year. While you can decide on one all by yourself, the internet will give you a million ways to pick one. Why you can even pay for the privilege. Many of the sites I checked out suggest you choose your word based on (more…) →

Start the Year with One Word by Violet Nesdoly

Start the Year with One Word by Violet Nesdoly

Happy New Year! By now you’ve probably switched calendars, thought about—maybe even listed—a few resolutions and goals for the year, and caught yourself writing 2016 instead of 2017 a time or two. Plus, you may have chosen your one word for 2017. (more…) →

The Good Old Days – Not! by Brenda J. Wood

The Good Old Days – Not! by Brenda J. Wood

Ah yes! We like to talk about the good old days when life was tougher than Mom’s free-range chicken. We embellish our stories: like that commercial that boasts of walking nine miles to school, uphill both ways, through a blizzard, wearing nothing but your dad’s cast-off pajamas! Life without electricity, neighbours, and indoor facilities sounds (more…) →

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 (more…) →

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 (more…) →

A Celebration Story by Violet Nesdoly

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 (more…) →

Celebrating Family by Janice L Dick

Celebrating Family by Janice L Dick

I first saw this picture on a card I received years ago from someone with a sense of humour that matches mine. I displayed it in my house recently when my extended family came for a reunion. About a year ago, my husband and I offered to host a reunion for my family. It was (more…) →
