For Writers

What career could be more exhausting, exhilarating, challenging, demeaning, stimulating, dull, or demanding? Choose any of those or all of them. Somedays there’s nothing we’d rather do than sit and write. Other days we can’t bear to stare at that screen.

This web-page is especially for those who share with me the highs and lows of the writing life.

Here are some downloads to help you on your writing journey.


Feeling in the dumps? I hoard quotes like some hoard gold. These Inspirations for Discouraging Days might help.

The first writing conference I attended had me shaking and nervous the whole time. I was so shy and intimidated, during breaks I buried my head in a book. If you are about to go to your first conference, perhaps this will help.

Needing help with your writing? Start a critique group. Here are some hints on how to go about it. 


Wanting more? I send out a monthly newsletter about writing.

I sometimes offer seminars in my home and also webinars on line. Notification of time and place will be in my newsletter. An eight session webinar I did for Society of Visual Storytellers titled WRITING PICTURE BOOKS was recorded and can be purchased here.
