Writing the Story of Your Life

by Ruth O’Neil “I want to write my life story, but I don’t know where to start.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this statement. Many people have a story to tell. It doesn’t matter that that story will never be on the New York Times best seller list. Maybe […]

The Art of Reading to Improve Your Writing

by Precarious Yates We can read tons of writing books explaining craft to us, but the single best way to improve our writing skills is by reading stories. Whether these stories are nonfiction or wild fantasy, reading them does something to help writers that few other practices will do. When we read, our […]

Write, They Said

by Suzanne D. Williams Write, they said. Write your first draft, just jot down the words and don’t look back. Right words. Wrong words. Bad phrases. Poor grammar. Telling, instead of showing.

Things I’ve Learned Writing by Suzanne D. Williams

Think by Ada Brownell

Writing occurs first in the mind. Authors think. You can think anywhere. I used to take notes beside the sink as I washed dishes and cooked. I often keep an idea pad in my lap when we’re traveling. Pen and paper are in my nightstand. Every great book or article begins in the […]
