No Limits or Know Limits? by Tracy Krauss

No Limits or Know Limits? by Tracy Krauss

No Limits or Know Limits? We can’t all be good at everything – no matter how much we wish it were true.

Two All-Time Favourites for Back to Writers’ School by Tracy Krauss

Two All-Time Favourite for Back to Writers’ School I love learning. I’ve read tons of books on writing craft and marketing books, as well as taken several online courses.

The Power of Fiction by Tracy Krauss

The Power of Fiction by Tracy Krauss

  While nonfiction is probably the most direct way of addressing issues of importance, my personal preference, for both reading and writing, uses fiction as the vehicle. Recently I read a book called Then She Was Born, written by Cristiano Gentili and translated into English by Lori Hetherington. I am often asked to review books, (more…) →

In the Dark About Dark Times by Tracy Krauss

In the Dark About Dark Times by Tracy Krauss

This month’s prompt asked, “How do dark times enhance our writing?” I’m sure I blinked, not quite sure I understood the question. I felt stumped. I felt stymied. I felt ill equipped to write on this topic. (more…) →
