Hey, Writerly Women. It has been so gratifying to receive your emails and comments saying that you both understand the winding down of our blog AND that you are all about staying in touch, looking at past posts, et cetera. We HAVE become a community here, and there is no... Continue reading

Hey, again, Writerly Women. Our Andrea had a great suggestion. She asked if the blog could stay live so that she -- and all of you -- can have access to previous posts. That will absolutely happen! In fact, because I have a full year left with Typepad, I'll keep... Continue reading

Hello my fellow Writerly Women. Y'know, I've never liked the old adage, "All good things must come to an end," because I don't believe it's true. The really good things are everlasting -- like God and deep knowing and love itself. I'd much rather say, "Some good things can be... Continue reading

Hello, my insanely beautiful Writerly Women. I hope you haven't felt that I've completely abandoned you and our community. Without going into a lot of detail that nobody needs to hear (!), I WAS abandoning mySELF, and I needed to take some time to go into the deep and see... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. I so appreciate your patience with my absence these last two weeks. A family illness in California kept us away longer than we planned and has necessitated some rebalancing on our return. I'm so grateful for your comments and prayers, and I love being back with you.... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. This lovely lady is the newest addition to our community -- Amy Etrheim. Like all of you she is Insanely Interesting. She has spent significant time in South America, speaks fluent Spanish, has worked as a medical interpreter and is a marvelous dancer. That's just some of... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. I'm love, love, loving the questions you're asking in response to Monday's post. They're not only providing information I need to shape future posts and series -- they're allowing you to breathe a sigh of deep relief and say, "OH, my gosh, I'm not the only one... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women! This picture of me in my husband's brand new Mini-Cooper has nothing whatsoever to do with what I'm about to write about, but this little sucker does ZOOM, so maybe there's a connection. His name, by the way, is Max. Mad Max. Zooming IS the topic, and... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women! Will you join me in congratulating our own ANDREA CHATMAN? She has been offered a contract by Elk Lake Publishing for her novel Beneath the Deep. Elk Lake is a small but traditional royalty-paying house publishing books of a Christian nature. This is HUGE for Andrea, and... Continue reading

Hey, my Writerly Women. Can I just say what a great bunch of people you are? Two new members have joined us recently, and you have been all ABOUT welcoming them. If I weren't already a part of this group, I would want to be! We're all going to have... Continue reading

Colleen says she's "geeked out" about our upcoming Zoom session, and I have to say I feel the same. Thanks for speaking for us, fellow writerly woman. I've scheduled the Zoom for: Saturday, March 20, 2021 2:00 p.m. Central Time An email has been sent out to the 13 people... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women, Do you not LOVE this image by Jose Antonio Alba? I think this young woman is one of us, going out with lanterns in search of herself, just as Natasha and Laureen are hacking through the jungle with a machete trying to get to the unreachable castle... Continue reading

Good morning, Writerly Women. Recently I had to announce that the 2019 Young Women Writers Retreat at Glen Eyrie was the last one. I look at photos like this one and feel a bittersweetness in my soul. Such delicious times, so many splendid results. I know I've made the right... Continue reading

You have once again proven how insanely interesting you are, Writerly Women! In case any of you missed it, yesterday I shared a marvelous picture of our Gloria reading a book entitled, well, How To Read a Book with a look of what Lily described as "disbelief" on her face.... Continue reading

Hello, fellow Writerly Women. Today we're starting a new series here on the Doorways Blog, a number of linked posts inspired by two Insanely Interesting Women. Gloria. And Emily Dickinson. We're going to go about this a little differently than usual, because we are nothing here if not creative, am... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women, I love that Lily gave me permission to use this amazing photo! Doesn't she just say without words what we're all dealing with right now? Feel free to email me a photo of yourself expressing your own frustrations and funkiness and fun. Jpeg attached to an email... Continue reading

Hey, Insanely Interesting Writerly Women. Recent private interactions I've had with a few of you, as well as your novella-length comments (which I love!) have brought back a memory. In the fall of 2019, when we could still safely go out and do stuff, I was at a craft show... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women! As you can see from my responses to your comments, I am SO impressed with your thoughts about the new streets you want to live on this year. We have MARGIE moving from Fear Lane to Confident Street. CATHY refuses to hang out any longer on Troubled... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women, It's so easy to retreat into our caves in seasons like the one we're experiencing now, isn't it? While we probably need to do a little of that, just to stay sane, most of us don't write well in hidey-holes. Not enough air in there. Not enough... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women. I think I would be in false-perky, head-in-the-sand mode if I didn't refer to last week's disturbing events at the Capitol and their reverberations around the world. Not to worry. I'm not opening the door to a political discussion here. I actually only want to make one... Continue reading

Happy New Year, insanely interesting Writerly Women! The only thing I like better than starting a fresh season is starting it with all of you. I'm serious about that. Even just your comments to each other regarding the last post about "Borrowing Faith" proved that we ARE a community and... Continue reading

Hey, Writerly Women! I'm loving seeing the progress you're making in our Treatment Plans as evidenced by your comments. Colleen, Emii, Margie, Natasha, Pam and Skeli have all weighed in recently on seeing what it's like to do what you WANT instead of trying to WILL yourself to ________ (fill... Continue reading

Hey, insanely interesting Writerly Women. I try to limit my granddaughter stories to one per conversation. Otherwise I would be even more insufferable than I am now. But, I mean, seriously, it does not get cooler than this in my world. (Even with the kitchen reno still in progress around... Continue reading

,Hey, Writerly Women. If this looks like someone you'd find insanely interesting, you'd be right. Meet Joyce Hollyday, former editor of Sojourners, author of a number of powerful works of non-fiction, genuine activist in the most meaningful sense of the word and, most recently, the creator of a wonderful historical...

Happy Day After Thanksgiving weekend, insanely interesting Writerly Women. Do I even need to say that I am insanely grateful for you and this community? It is indeed one of the most valuable treasures I have discovered this year, and I hold you all close to me. I hope Thursday... Continue reading
