Like everything in today’s society, medicine is evolving. The number of medications available to us either via prescription or over the counter is increasing however, these are commonly found in a tablet form. There are however, many people within the U.K knowingly or unknowingly suffering from a condition called ‘dysphagia’ meaning that they can’t swallow tablets.
Not being able to swallow tablets is not only a struggle for children and the elderly but it can affect a number…Continue

Last week, my audio essay, "Sanctuary" was published at "The Drum: A Literary Magazine for Your Ears." As fond and proud as I am of this particular essay and this online literary magazine, having this piece of writing go public gave me the jitters.
"Sanctuary" is about the 2005 death of my mother. In eight years, this is my first time…Continue
Today is my pub day, and to celebrate my publisher Gallery/ Simon & Schuster is giving away two copies of The Lake House, to She Writes members. Just leave a comment to win.
The moment I've dreamt about is here. Ever since I was a little girl, sitting in the library tucked between the shelves with my nose in a book, I've imagined what it would be like to have my book published.
In the last few months, there's been so much anticipation, hard work, things I…Continue

You don’t just show up on race day and run a full marathon without training. You’re not likely to be able to finish, and it would be both painful and unhealthy.
Rather than reaping the health benefits of regular running, you end up sore muscles, blisters, and maybe even stress fractures. We all know how it’s done: When preparing for a marathon, you start small and train over time, building to where you can take on hose 26.1 miles.
Likewise, it’s not healthy to go on large…Continue

Book Reviewed by Mary Wallace
Going to Solace by Amanda McTigue
This novel is an amazing piece of grace, dipping into the ordinary lives of people with extraordinary insight into the uncomfortable space between their dreams and the reality of how their lives have unfolded.
The characters in this book are so utterly true to their geography and the time period, Appalachia in the late 1980s, that I was absolutely in the fictive dream, in…Continue

Thank you, She Writes, for giving me this opportunity to share my experience as a debut novelist nearing her publication date. I’m hoping by sharing my story, my weaknesses and strengths, that I can help other authors in the same situation. Writing can be lonely. Coming to publication, even though I have a…Continue
Bonjour, Writers of SheWrites,
I am new here so I am very excited about connecting and getting to know what you all are working on. Well, many of you! What makes you keep working? What is your passion? The story? The message? The thrill of the keys clicking and clacking?
My current NIP is basically a lit fic about a food stylist searching for her son, and this takes her on a journey through her past.
How nice it would be to simplify…Continue

So, I've been on Shewrites for a while now, and I never know what to write or blog about. I run two other blogs and was also asked to help keep up the blog at Hydra Publications. So you can imagine just how busy I've been. On top of that, I have not one, but FIVE titles coming out this year from Hydra Publications so I've been busy editing.
I am always up to making new contacts and meeting new people. I'll start to comment on people's posts more often if you guys will…Continue

That's rich like a good coffee, sumptuous chocolate or the deepest red of a velvety rose, not rich as in financially overflowing (although that one would be good too). How do you achieve and maintain the quality within your writing?Continue

You've finally found a reading "pal," a person you trust who answers all the burning questions you have about your manuscript, a person who has also published a little or a lot, who takes the kind of consideration with your manuscript that it needs to be "polished." You've given her your…Continue

I spend significant portions of my day stressing--unproductive stressing over things I cannot address at that particular moment.
For example, I’ve wanted to update this blog’s email subscription to a new format for months. MONTHS.
But there’s always a million other things to do, too, and that project is a time-consuming one. So it sits. And every day that I don’t get it done, I end up stewing and stressing over it: When will I get this done? How will I get this done? Will I…Continue

This is a blog from my website I thought I'd share with the SheWrites community:
In the 5-Step system I formulated for Writing in the Zone, I suggest you end your writing time with giving thanks and feeling grateful for your writing session—the inspiration, the flow, the pages you wrote–whether you wrote 2 pages or 20–and even if you spent the time ruminating without…Continue
