I’ve subscribed to your ezine for several months now and I look forward to it every week.
Having failed at finding work [read: paid work] as a writer myself, and (at least temporarily) giving up on the idea in order to pay my mortgage, I have found new creative juices from finally following your advice to start my own blog. Joy to me! And hopefully to others as well.
I wanted to thank you for your inspiration, and if you or your followers like to read stories of a spiritual adventurer, come take a peek at: http://ramblingsofaseeker.blogspot.com/
Thank you, and keep up the great work!
~The Shy Writer~
Just read Hope’s article. I have some horror stories for you. When I first started writing, when I got in front of a crowd or even a part of a crowd, I would vomit. Sometimes, I’d breath slow, and then I would get dizzy and pass out. Tried breathing fast, still passed out. It took many years before I joined a writing group and it helped. Now, I do poetry readings, signings, and other public appearances with no problem.
I am currently reading The Shy Writer and am loving it. Hope did a wonderful job in writing it and your company did a good job at printing it. She’s a natural writer with a message for others.
