It's tough enough to get started.
Everyone says how easy it should be to write about your life. You can keep a journal and tell a good story at the dinner table, right? So it should be no problem to whip out a 60,000 word book.
If you've been believing that, then no wonder if you get stuck.
I'm here to tell you that it's brutally difficult to keep writing and let's just say it openly here--most of us…Continue

Like so many others, I've always written; Julia Cameron says its the most natural and instinctive thing for human beings to do, (though I think singing comes first - even babies do it when they're only days old.) I wrote poetry and hid it when my marriage and my life were falling…Continue

Have you ever found yourself struggling to make an important decision that could be a potential game changer, but money is the one thing getting in your way?
When I started writing my memoir, I struggled believing I could write the damn thing. Every day, voices of self-doubt crept in but at the same time, telling my story motivated me to the finish line. Now, that the book is on the track to be published, I freak out every time I have to…Continue
Two years ago I decided to attend a Screenwriters Conference in Hollywood and, despite my reluctance to embarrass myself in public, signed up to present my screenplay at the conference “Pitch Fest.” The pitch fest was to consist of sixty to eighty tables staffed with representatives from film agencies…Continue

Do you prefer to write what you don't know or what you know?
For me ideally I would at least attempt to do both...
Personally I found that trying to write what I know is more challenging because I experienced it myself.
Not that writing what you don't know would be any better. They are both challenging and restricting. If you try to write an authobiography, biography or memoir you have to really stick to what's true, while you may be allowed…Continue

I like the idea of this blog-thing. I don't know if anybody reads it, so I use it as a place for thinking out loud about anything at all. I can't make it a how-to blog because I'm too new; I don't know how-to yet. I am an emerging artist. (Yeah, I claim that.)
I’m still thinking about Mary Karr and her memoir The Liar’s Club. Yes, I know the book is not new, but I am. Can’t help comparing my book (in progress) to hers, just can’t help it, because…Continue

I gave myself the gift of this book, The Liar's Club by Mary Karr. I first saw her at an event in Berkeley in October. The interviewer was Brooke Warner, and that's where I heard about The Magic of Memoir, which opened the door to SheWrites. I was so impressed with both of them, and I had never heard of either before this Fall. That’s how new I am to serious writing as a career.
It took 3 weeks to get the book because I refused to buy it from…Continue
