The writer’s house sits at a crossroads. To her left is the sea of opportunity, new ideas and characters being channeled by her very own Long Island medium, her muse. To her right is the black pavement of ideas and characters stuck in concrete, latchkey kids left behind to swelter in the unbridled heat of stagnation. They melt into the dead-end road, like the Wicked Witch of the West. They have come undone like Wally Lamb’s Dolores Price.
My main character hovered over her lifeless body. She was a hollowed shell bereft of youthful ideas, more like the walking dead. Once full of life, she sat by my side and told me her story, taking me through the hushed silence of Mississippi trees and half-gallon Mason jars of sun tea to her…Continue
As I've said several times on this blog, the publishing business is a business. Being a published author isn't all writing, social media, cozy coffee shop book signings, and royalty checks, it is a business.
It's easy for authors to get bogged down inside their own heads and miss what is going on in areas that can directly affect them and their writing future.

I did not consider myself a writer until I started working for Hedgebrook.
I was an actor who wrote occasionally, a theatre major who had gravitated toward non-profit communications, but not a writer.

“What do you do?”
“I work for Hedgebrook.”
“Oh, great, you must be a writer then, right?”
I so wanted to reply with a resounding “Yes, I am,” but I felt somehow unqualified. I had deemed my poems and half-finished plays and essays unworthy. I was the harshest critic of my work and my own worst enemy.
Hedgebrook empowered me to name myself as a writer.
After carrying the dream of you inside of me for what feels like forever, we are a scant ten weeks shy of your official launch into the world. While I’m not quite ready to say goodbye, I am ready and eager to thank you, for no matter what happens after you leave the nest, you have already given me more than I can express.
Since I don’t want my gratitude to get lost in the frenzy of your upcoming birthday party, let me take this moment to appreciate all you have given me.
Because of you, as a first-time author, I have learned how to ask and receive help in ways I never thought possible. I have reached out for assistance from wonderful people who have helped us both grow. I have even contacted complete strangers—high-profile and highly accomplished people I wouldn’t have…Continue
