Live and write from your sweet spot: the place where your core values intersect with your core talents + life experiences. Experience greater fulfillment by discovering your writing purpose. By that I mean what you want to share with others. Books like Chicken Soup For The Soul and magazines like Reader’s Digest and Guideposts are […]

Joy Of Writing

There is a joy in writing about things that are going on in your life or in the lives of others.  It is all about the sharing.  Think of the feeling you get when you get a card, a letter, an email or hand written note shared across coffee, lunch, dinner or even across time. […]

Using Events To Kick Start Your Writing

March is Women’s History Month in the Unites States.  It is a time for celebrating women’s heritage and inspiring stories.  Women have always had a role in keeping the history of their families and communities alive through storytelling, handing down recipes and keeping family treasures safe. Using that as your theme,  even you men, can […]

Most everyone has special memories that they reflect back on in times of plenty or in times of difficulty.  Athletes train for hours, months, years–all in search of the “zone”.  Philosophers ponder for years to come up with life’s […]
