I'd like to share a piece I wrote for the Yeah Write Review last summer, which also appeared on my blog.

Anybody looking to become a better self-editor?

Those of you in the midst of the arduous process of editing your most recent project and feeling a little overwhelmed or lost should check out this Self-Editing course I am teaching through WOW! Women on Writing.

It begins February 24, and spots are still available!

Hello all.

HELP. I am looking for input and advice from you all regarding my newest blog.

It is not my intent to deflect or reject viewers or supporters, but rather to draw attention and bring awareness to this issue.  

My Problem is that it is an ugly, disgusting issue, one which no-one wants to see or to hear about even though it is very real.  Unfortunately  it is not difficult  to come up with subjects or subject matter.  

It is however, a very tough subject emotionally for me, so therefore, I find it hard to write with any flare or objectiveness that might draw in followers, spark change and maybe even save just one life.

I have tried to present just the facts, cases, statistics, ect.  Now it needs some love and some life.

Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

I have a new piece up on Write It Sideways about writing retreats, featuring a great interview with Amy Wheeler of Hedgebrook in WA and a first-hand account of a resident's experience at Ragdale in IL.
