Who knew life at sixty could be so great? I am a Life Coach, writer, educator, columnist, non-fiction writer, and soon-to-be published novelist.(My M.A.in Counseling Psychology has been the foundation for a rich and satisfying career.) On the home front? I met my husband in 1975. Fast forward 37 years - three kids, four cats, one pony, three dogs, and a guinea pig with a skin condition - and we are now empty nesters.I continue to explore, expand, learn, and laugh at this fascinating business of life in the second half!

"Pitching" to agents at writer's conferences is a critically important piece of a writer's life. It can also make your palms sweat and your head ache! Based on my training as a Life Coach, and my experience as an author who has has successfully pitched to agents, I teach writers practical tools that make this process a much easier experience!

Your graciousness, generosity and kind-heartedness during our "adventure" (ahem :)) stay with me. Thank you for being you and all the gifts you bring to the world. I look forward to connecting with you on twitter and beyond ...
Wonderful congratulations again on your beautiful book!
Hi Tracey, thanks for friending, where I am? (that's a good one) I am a newbie to fiction, having only written nonfiction, grad school stuff, but that's why I'm here. I decided to quit my doc program in education and write about my work in a more creative way
- after reading some quantum physics I had an epiphany about how innate intelligence, what we know when we're born, is described the same way as the foundation of the disciplines,math, science, etc., for ex., the laws of physics, laws of the universe - all these are based on the concept of symmetry, which is defined with terms like equality, unity and beauty ! It demands that I write about it with these terms in mind, so I've got a daunting task set out for myself but I am here enjoying the generosity of all the caring ladies here that I can learn from.
Oh, and I am also 60, and never knew it could be OK!
Thanks for the friend request, Tracey. I'm glad to connect with you. I'm a short story writer who's currently trying to make the leap into novel writing. My short stories have been published in commercial and literary magazines, but the novel is still a work in progress. It's an upmarket commercial novel that I hope will be popular with book clubs.
Hi Tracey, so nice to connect with you! I write suspense thrillers, paranormal romance and some paranormal fantasy. I recently joined a writers critiques group in my town and submitted a short story to a magazine. I also received my first rejection letter today. Haha...it's okay, this means I'm now officially an author. I'm not in the least discouraged by it, but encouraged to write more and sharpen my skills.
Hi Tracey, thanks for connecting. I have a completed manuscript, The Sheep Walker, and am 2/3 through the draft of the sequel. I'm also writing short stories and just placed one in Foliate Oak Literary Magazine. (All this info is on my website sydneyavey.com) You mentioned SFWC...I went to UC Berkeley, and this summer I'm traveling to the mecca of WCs, the Iowa Summer Writing Festival, but for some reason I've felt intimated by SFWC...and I know nothing about it! Go figure. I've been to Write on the Sound in Edmonds, WA and loved it.
Hi Tracey- I feel the exact same way-- where would we writers -- the world -- be without yoga! I am facilitating a Writing & Yoga Workshop on the Oregon Coast (in Astoria) the same weekend as the PNWA Conference so, unfortunately I won't be there. I will be posting soon on SheWrites about this 2013 summer Writing & Yoga Workshops in the PNW if you are interested please visit: http://www.stephaniereneedossantos.com/yoga-writing-workshop/ . I would love to meet up with you at some point. Where do you practice yoga? What styles? Congrats on your upcoming book too! Let us be in touch.
Working on my memoir, I've turned to many, many (many many, too many) books with tips on how to get started, organized, and inspired. I also read a lot of what other authors say about the process and will share quotes here, as well. I'll begin…See More
