Authors’ Blog: 2013-2014

Author Magazine Banner 1.14

My blog appeared in Author Magazine (www.authormagazine.org), sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.

After publishing an article in Author magazine, in the spring of 2013 I was invited by the editor to contribute to a new feature, Authors’ Blog. In this feature, we discussed and reflected on our writing lives. For me,  the intertwined topics were writing, spirituality, and life balance.

The other four invited bloggers were all on the West Coast; I was the only East Coast interloper. My blog appeared on odd Wednesdays of each month (no reflection on the content).

Unfortunately, the Authors’ Blog is no longer accessible, but below you can read some of my blogs.

Your comments are welcome!

Twitter Comments on “The Writing Mentor I Never Met”:

  • A “thank you” to those who have encouraged us along the way is so uplifting!
  •  It’s just one of those posts that must be shared.
  • This was a wonderful piece. I savored every word. Thank you.
  • Author pens powerful tribute to the writing mentor she “never met.” Must read via @readlearnwritehttp://goo.gl/fb/fNwbu 

Just now finished the March/April issue [of Working Writer] and must tell you how impressed I am with the lead piece by Noelle Sterne [“Five Power Tools for Smashing Mini-Blocks”]. She has lots of good stuff to tell us and relates everything with skillful writing: strong verbs, specific nouns, and a minimum of adverbs and adjectives. She draws us in at the beginning and we never stop paying attention.

Hurry over [to Pen & Prosper] for some great advice for writers. Jennifer Brown Banks has a guest, Noelle Sterne, whose advice is spot on [“10 Ways to Reconnect With Your Writing Core”].

Not only is the topic timely and valuable [“Creativity Blocked? Here’s the Solution” in WritetoDone], your writing is lyrical, arresting and immediately absorbing.
