Hey, Writerly Women. your response to GLORIA'S piece was exactly the kind of feedback that makes a writer -- hopefully Gloria! -- want to get right back to the computer keyboard with fingers blazing. Your questions were insightful and thoughtful, and all were framed in positive "What I loved about... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. Your response to the idea of putting excerpts of your work here on the blog and asking for help was awesome. "I'd love to do this!" "Such a good idea." "I'm up for it." "When does this start?" How about right now? GLORIA sent me a snippet,... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. Every now and then here on the blog, we'll offer an opportunity for you to put your work in progress out there and get input from the group -- or just take a step in overcoming that fear of letting anybody see what you're doing, whether you... Continue reading

Hey Writerly Women. Monday we talked about those writing doors that are slamming in our faces, making us feel like, "Seriously, what is the point?" I asked you to comment, and I was expecting things like: * I've gotten five rejections from agents and I'm ready to give up. *... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. When I stood at the end of this walkway in St. Thomas, it looked as if the hall of closed doorways was never-ending. And then of course -- because my mind is a crazy town of similes and metaphors -- it also occurred to me that getting... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. One in your midst -- MEDOMFO -- reported a writing success this week: I'm getting a poem published in a charity book that some young writers from The Rebelution's writing group The Young Writer are organising, and God willing, I may even get a short story and...

Hey, Writerly Women! Mondays are showcase days when we spotlight writers from among us. Today I bring you LESLIE FARTHING, who is working on a novel I consider to be chick lit with a deeper meaning. The book is only in its first draft, and it's already both touching and... Continue reading

Good morning, Writerly Women. The marvelous braided young woman you see with the contagious grin -- that's GLORIA, budding author and friend of the blog, (as well as maker of hats for the homeless.) Gloria's description of her writing process is that it's like the potato masher which gets caught... Continue reading

I'm loving the idea of taking some Mondays to spotlight what you're doing, because here's the deal: If you write, you are a writer. If you haven't published, what do you call what you do? As I mentioned last time in a quote from GLORIA, you're not just typing. Really.... Continue reading

Hey, fellow Writerly Women. Thanks so much for your participation in our look at Where Awesome Authors create. (Sounds like a great premise for a magazine but something close has already been done, dang it. ) As LESLIE said in her comment, she's learning to be a writer wherever she... Continue reading

"A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Virginia Woolf Hey, fellow writerly women. I don't recommend taking life lessons from Virginia Woolf (the poor thing drowned herself after a life fraught with bipolar disorder, which was untreatable at the time),... Continue reading

Twenty aspiring authors between the ages of 18 and 40 gathered for a weekend of writing, learning, crafting, laughing, crying, and sharing with vulnerability. While all the gals you see here went home with the... Continue reading

Good morning, my writerly women. Mary Christine Weber, graduate of the From Shadow to Shelf Program and now a successful published author, is a pro in all things social media. I, on the other hand, am not. But I think I may finally have a solution to the issues so... Continue reading
