Hi Stephanie Lennox, Do you have a plan for blogging and travel together? If you or any of the bloggers find interest in South East Asia, we can work together. Cheers, Jahir

I wasn’t very productive at all last week and this week, while I have gotten some things accomplished on my to-do list, I still did not get as much achieved as I would have liked to.  I do have updated posts on my blog that I would love for you to check out.  I shared my thoughts on writing outside the box that some try to place you in as a writer.  I wrote about my habits (good and bad) as a writer and how they either help me or hinder me in my journey.  I took time to promote some things within the Write 2 Be Media company and even to promote a couple of other up and coming businesses that I think are very worthy of being looked at. 

Despite last week being a non-productive week for me I wrote about the need to still show up and move forward in your goals rather than standing still.  Some personal issues had me thinking about how I prefer to make my own route and march to my own beat but of course that does mean that you sometimes have to accept that everything is not going to come easy and you will not always be in constant movement and learn to not beat yourself up over it. 

I also came to two important realizations recently and that is that even when you are in route to becoming a leader, you must first learn how to follow someone else’s lead and that if you are truly going to get where you are going you have to stop putting limits on what you can achieve.  We all have our own goals and dreams to attain but we essentially all want the same thing; to be great in what we love to do. 

I hope you will check out my latest blog posts on my Write 2 Be blog and journey with me trying to make sense of this whole writing world and show your support.  Also please go and check out the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine and like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page for updates on what’s coming soon for the Magazine and how you can become a part of the magazine!

Hi fellow bloggers!

I am a journalist in my professional career. However, I started a blog in December as a way to cope with my divorce. And then it turned into a blog for healing by documenting my New Year's resolutions through 2014. The intent behind the resolutions being to help me heal from the divorce and start a new life that makes me happy. Ultimately, I hope to turn the blog into a memoir. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hi!

My name is Bug, I come from the world of fanfiction and I previously wrote a few pieces for Persephone Magazine. I have a blog, Ladybug Ink which is a work in progress. I'm happy to be a part of She Writes and hope to connect with as many writers as possible as I grow as a writer myself.

Dear All, Please share with NorCal friends:

Award winning authors Judith Newton, Tasting Home, and Rebecca Coffey, Nietzsche’s Angel Food Cake, explore intersections of the literary and the gastronomical.

*Thursday, April 3, 7:30.At Books Inc., 2275 Market St., San Francisco*

In TASTING HOME, Judith Newton combines recipes with personal vignettes. Writing in the classic form of food memoirs by writers such as M.F.K. Fisher and Ruth Reichl, she takes us on a remarkable journey through the cuisines, cultural spirit, and politics of the 1940s til now. If Julia Child had cooked Italian for a gay husband, used sugar to sweeten a sour childhood, and hosted buffets for a better world, she could have written TASTING HOME.

•“Engaging,”“delightful and resonant,” /Publisher’s Weekly/ Starred Review.

In NIETZSCHE’s ANGEL FOOD CAKE Coffey allows 22 cultural monoliths to share “their” succulent recipes, thereby providing answers to such pressing questions as: When Friedrich Nietzsche made angel food cake, did the angel survive the encounter? When Sigmund Freud handled raw fish, where did his thoughts take him? Exactly what did Dorothy Parker mean by the term “Parker House Rolls?” And how did Ernest Hemingway handle his favorite bullfight souvenirs? Warning. Eat the resulting food at your own peril.


• “Like good sausage, or a breakfast I once had in Manilla, Rebecca Coffey’s new book is filled with things I can’t describe and maybe don’t want to know about. I only know it’s wonderful.”—Jon Potter, /The Brattleboro Reformer./

Hello Ladies. Anyone here have a moment (or a few, actually) to spare? I am looking some feedback on the 10th chapter of my YA Silent Voices. It is written from a omniscient third-person narrative, focusing on one or two of the for MCs feelings (or silenced voices) in each chapter.

Silent Voices: Flowers and Flirts

I have taken forever to actually get down to writing this chapter (January blues turning to March blues!)

It would be very kind of you to give me any positive, negative or constructive feedback you may be willing to share. Thank you very much in advance! :)

Comment by Courtney Birst on March 28, 2014 at 3:49am

Hello! My name is Courtney Birst and my blog is Word Perv. I write about everything: my life, running, writing, poetry, food, drinking, my dog, travel, and pretty much everything in between. I published my first book of poetry, Words Meant to be Spoken, in fall 2012 and am working on book #2.  Happy to be a part of She Writes!
