Okay so last week was one of those weeks in which I wish I had all of the answers to why things weren’t going the way as planned.  I blogged about my disdain for those who question the habits of what a “real writer” is, as if there were only one specific way to do so.  I also talked about challenging your own limitations and how rewarding it can be to step out of your own comfort zone.  And as much as I wished I had all the answers, I also blogged about the good that can come out of the broken pieces of one’s life and how rewarding it can be to sometimes have things break down so that you can see that it wasn’t working as well as you thought it was.  

 

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!

Hello everyone! My name is Krystol and I'm a newbie to She Writes. I'm trying to get a badge but it's not working for my wordpress. Any ideas?

Hi there,

I wanted to take a moment to say hello to everyone here. I just recently joined SheWrites after publishing my short story, "The Cemetery by the Lake" and am looking forward to releasing Book 1 in a gothic fiction/dark fantasy series in May.  I also am a musician with a couple releases out and work in independent film as well. Feel free to stop by my page and I look forward to meeting everyone. :)

Take a look at the list of finalists by Foreward's Books of the Year Contest.   She Writes Press showed up big time.  I didn't read the entire set of lists, but so far I have seen Nan Gefen's Clear Lake, Mary Hutchings Reed's Warming Up (general fiction), Linda Joy Meyer's Don't Call Me Mother (memoir), and my own Tasting Home (Women's Studies). There's another round of judging, but SWP should all take a bow before that.. https://botya.forewordreviews.com/finalists/2013/?utm_source=contac...

This past week I struggled a bit (and blogged about it of course) with the line between writing creatively and having to think of the business... (marketing myself).  I was just having one of those weeks where I felt like nothing that I was doing in order to move forward in my....  I also wrestled with my desire to read more and be more of that avid reader that I was when I was younger, that made me fall in love with writing and storytelling in the first place.  And in the end I came to terms that all of that was my fear talking and my inner (negative) voices trying to have me defeat myself with all of the glass half empty type of thinking and realized that I have to do things that I am afraid of in order to have experiences that I would’ve ordinarily never had before.  Sometimes Baby steps toward doing these things that we are fearful of or that we have convinced ourselves would go wrong is better than making no strides at all.  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!

So this past week I have been working a lot on putting together my marketing strategies, not just for my blog, and the Write 2 Be Magazine, but also the fan page and my upcoming ebook series (tentatively titled “For the Crazy Makers…), and just the Write 2 Be brand in general.  I really do want to share my journey with everyone here and invite you all to continue checking out my blog posts.  My latest blog posts touch on topics about not trying to fit in, directing my motivation, being mindful of the words that we say, leaving it all on the floor when it comes to your dreams, creating the life that you want to have, making the best out of bad situations, and remembering to promote myself (cause I could be better at it).  Please check out and support my Write 2 Be blog and also the latest issue of Write 2 Be Magazine.  Then go 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!
