I think we should have a standing thread for writing accomplishments (so they aren't buried in other posts, though please add them there too!).

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a real illness caused by many different traumatic situations and can happen to anyone!  Visit "Has PTSD Touched You?" plus an excerpt from Chapter 26 of my memoir on My Journey into Publishing My 1st Book.

Here's some encouraging news!  To all fellow passion project entrants... I just launched my memoir project on kickstarter!

What a fun way to get some funding for editing AND - get some momentum going!  CHECK IT OUT!  ... I will keep you posted on how this approach work out.  It has been fun and uplifting getting this project on kickstarter.

Hang in there Brooke, don't get discouraged. This is the most challenging part of the process. Keep on keeping on..."WriteOn"

Unfortunately the agent decided to turn the project down, though she was very very nice about it.  I am a bit frustrated because I am getting form rejections with very little interest from the query and yet this agent was very interested based on the query, so I don't know if it's a problem there or not.  I also am getting conflicting opinions on the structure, so I'm back to the drawing board I guess.

Congratulations, Brooke. Every time someone gets the call, it's encouraging.

Congrats, Brooke. That is great news for an author to hear. Good luck!

Just got a request for my proposal from an agent.  I've spent the fall working really hard on this, so I am encouraged.  Anyone else have updates?

The SheWrites team is inspired by this festive season! Through Dec. 24th, will focus on The Gift of Inspiration in every aspect of what we do as writers.


So let's stir up a snow-flurry of community inspiration!


Check out our daily writing prompts from 10 inspiring writers and post something short and sweet in response, like a one-word answer, a photo, or video. [Today's post is: What inspires you to…keep writing when the writing gets tough? #swi...]



Know the perfectly-inspired book to give that certain someone? Recommend it through the She Writes Recomm-engine!

Know a writer who's looking for resources and the best writing community out there? Invite them to join She Writes!

Ok, let's get out there and spread the inspiration!  I can't wait to hear from you.
