For Writers in Making a Difference
Inside every writer is a story that must be told; lessons learned that must be shared; and encouragement that must be given. If that story isn’t told, then something is missing in our world.
Attending writers conferences is the best way to not only learn the craft and business of writing, but to make connections. Friendships are formed, and there is nothing like writing buddies to keep you encouraged to go the distance and finish those projects.
Join a writers group. I have found not only a critique group, but life long friendships. My writers group, called The Scribettes, started as a journaling group. We attended conferences together. We shared information. We critiqued each other’s work. We have shared each other’s lives and prayed together. We now have several published authors, in several venues including blogs, articles, books and more. Check this out: we started a blog together in October 2015 called “The Scribette Snippets” at http://scribettesnippets.com/
DO look for a writers group to join. It will make a difference in your writing life!
Need help in managing a website?
Gretchen Louise teaches writers about media, creates and manages websites and more.
When my website had to be moved to a different host, upgraded and maintained in ways that I could not do, I called Gretchen and she was gracious to work with me in my situation. I may be able to change content, but I am not techno savvy enough to keep up the ‘back end’ of the pages and I depend on Gretchen to keep my site running smoothly. She does a fabulous job. She responds quickly and my website is always working well.
Gretchen has also taught me and guided me through using social media, learning how to put newsletters together and send them as well as sprucing up my blog so it looks good. I’m grateful for all the tools she has given to me so that I may go further in using my writing gifts. I recommend Gretchen to anyone who wants to learn social media and needs an online presence to promote what they are doing with class.
