Who Owns Our Stories? Politically Correct vs. Empathy vs. ? (Part 1)

I recently had a lovely chat with a smart, savvy, kind, independent publisher, who had a concern about my novel, "The One And Holy Skillet." He worried that I, a white, Jewish Midwesterner, clinging to the Middle Class by very short fingernails, had written a novel that contained Southern caricatures, as well as a Jewish northerner providing insight to an Appalachian Christian. (Though he agreed that the  Appalachian Christian also provides insight to the…

Best 2014 Writing Tips from Author Interviews

One of the things I deeply enjoy about my blog,'The Practice of Creativity' is my commitment to author interviews. My blog allows me to reach out to new and established writers, after I hear them give a reading or learn about them online, and ask for an interview.

Merry Christmas!

I would like to take the time to Share the Gift of Christmas with you. This is a season of love and kindness, a time to show others that we care about them more than they realize. Why do we want to do better at Christmas time? I believe it stems from the Birth of the Savior. "He is the Gift" given to us from a loving Heavenly Father.

Russell M. Nelson said, "Christmas is a time of reflection on what we can become because of God’s sacred gift. As we discover the gift, we learn of the…

A Grateful Writing Life

I am waiting. It’s a common activity for writers. You work on a piece of writing. You finish it. You send it somewhere. You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait. Ideally you work on more writing while you wait.…

But I felt like I didn’t know how to steady myself in the real world after being in my previous novel’s world…
