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!

Writing Nestuary: Owning One's Rhythms and Forms at Mother Writer Mentor-- a beautiful look at the manic rush of writing Nestuary (a book that is a hybrid essay) by Molly Sutton Kiefer. I adore the title...you can tell this book was written by a poet, right?! about premature birth and more.

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!

Holographic Haiku and Genetic Futures: Poet Alexandria Peary on Fer... at The Fertile Source today; another clever poet mother, Alexandria's interview is a great read. She's written us some great blogposts at MWM too, links included in interview above.  We are just now editing a print anthology of our past interviews paired with poems to be released in the fall...very excited about it. Alex will be featured there too.

Now that I am almost finished (but not quite) with the first ebook in my ebook series for writers (more to come on that soon), I have to start thinking even more vigorously about the best ways to market my ebook.  I want some traditional ways of marketing it but I also want to market it in ways that haven’t been done before (or at least that I haven’t ever done before).  If any of you have any marketing suggestions (inside or outside of the box) please feel free to share them with me because I’ll admit that I am not very good at marketing myself.  Of course in the midst of working on this I have not been neglecting my blog duties or putting together the latest issue of my Magazine in which I took a hiatus from in the middle of last year.  Please go check out my latest blog posts on expecting to get what I know I deserve, not being a yes person just to keep the peace, on part of my journey on my current ebook project, my first poem that I’ve written in years, and on my daily struggle with the career path of being a writer.  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!
