Writers just want to have fun


“But why would you want to help someone do
something that puts them into competition with you?”
I was recently asked that question after a stranger overheard my enthusiasm about teaching an upcoming writing workshop… but you see I don’t see how helping other aspiring writers enjoy their craft is competition. I see it as helping to create a word of communication.
If you have a Kindle then you can subscribe to my weekly writing workshop,
Living, Breathing, Writing from Amazon blogs ~ there is a new lesson every Friday
Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you don’t have to miss out. You can download

Living Breathing, Writing: A Lesson a Day

for a full month of lessons, exercises and prompts
By the way, that writing workshop I was speaking so enthusiastically about is happening on September 21, 7pm, at the Suffern Free Library

  1. When you three bring this show on the road, make sure to come to Georgia.Malcolm

  2. If we go on the road, we'll be sure to put Georgia on the list of destinations (with a guest speaker of course!)

  3. I second what Malcolm says, only for Texas! That's an interesting question posed about being in competition with other writers and I agree with you – it's far from competition. All of us have been helped by others. πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Karen,It;s so true, the writing community is one of the most helpful groups I know of.~Chelle
