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. Another thing that's easy for authors to do is jump on bandwagons and join lynch mobs, especially when it comes to one company we love--and love to hate.
I know it's hard to stay on top of industry news and trends. Many of us turn to trusted…Continue
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.
When I was introduced to new people, the conversation would often go something like this:
“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
When I was ten years old, distressed about my life circumstances, I wrote a little book about my crisis on a pocket-sized Hello Kitty notepad and hid it inside a rock wall, hoping some kindred spirit would find it and that we would be forever connected through that common understanding. I suppose you could say that was my first attempt at publishing.
As an adult, I spent eight years writing a memoir about my childhood, and then tucked it away into a drawer. I never wrote to be published, I just wrote because it was in me and had to come out. Eventually, with a bit of pressure from teachers, friends and family, I began to publish some of my writing, including excerpts from my first memoir. For too long I had buried the truth about who I was and where I came from. It was time to…Continue

New poem, a cento:

Gone are the days when teachers used huge boards to write what they are teaching and present practical lessons with diagrams. Invention of computer and internet has evolved and improved education and made it digital. Computer education was limited to learning about computer instead of using computer. Today, learners are provided with a great opportunity to study various subjects using computer and experience a better understanding. Learning includes social…
