Most often the published writers are simply those writers who refused to quit. I can help you persevere until you publish.
Rx for Writers
On this blog, you won’t actually find bandages or medicine. But you will find my cures for dealing with disappointment and jealousy, writing despite physical and emotional pain, banishing procrastination, balancing writing and a day job, and combining writing with parenting (from infancy to adulthood.)
In my experience, with writing friends and hundreds of students, these are the issues that make writers throw up their hands and quit. But you don’t need to. We’re all in this together. If we pool our resources and share what’s worked for us, we’re all better off.
I’ve pooled some of those resources and put them in a free e-book called “Rx for Writers: Managing Your Writing Space and Your Writing Time.” [Get this free e-book at the top right of this page.]
Realizing a Dream
After college and marriage, I was at home with my three children (soon to become four). I had chronic migraine headaches and a host of neurological face and neck problems, with severe pain. It was then that my childhood dream became a reality. Writing. It was the most effective and reliable medicine I could find.
Since those days, I’ve had 42 books published, by both Christian and general interest publishers. (Most are middle grade. Two are for writers.) Each new one is a thrill!
I can’t imagine a life without writing now, but it hasn’t been easy. I know it isn’t easy for you either. I hope by visiting my blog you’ll find the encouragement you need to keep going–and ultimately share your own stories through the written word.
