You CAN Write a Book!
If I can, you can.
Thanks for being here! I’m so glad we found each other!
So WHO am I and WHY am I here? Good question. Let’s start with the ‘who’.
I love a good boot camp, yoga class, hike, swim, pedal or long walk. I lost my only sibling to cancer two years ago and I’m still adjusting to who am I after that. I have a lot of useless information in my head, including how to write a killer college essay (ask me!) and how to navigate sending a kid overseas for college.
I love cats. Always have. I love to read. Always have. Fiction mostly but also news and any book about natural disasters (Into Thin Air, A Perfect Storm, Endurance, etc). TV shows need to be good enough that I’m willing to trade my reading time. Some are. Most aren’t.
I’m an avid traveler. Nothing sparks my imagination more than getting out of my comfort zone.
But maybe the most important thing about me, for our purposes here anyway, is that I see EVERYTHING in the world through the lens of being a writer. If this is you, I’m so happy to know you’re out there. If not, yup, I’m that oddball friend.
So that’s WHO I am. Now WHY am I here?
Because YOU want to write a book!
Or maybe you’re in the middle of writing a book or just finished writing a book or are writing another book. It doesn’t matter. I’m going to help you.
I recently listened to an author’s talk that was fun but shallow, by which I mean this person didn’t have a whole lot of experience to lean into. At the end, I had a moment that had nothing to do with this talk.
My thought? Get over your imposter syndrome already! You can actually help people who want to do what you’ve done. You’ve been at this a long time. You know stuff! Seriously. Blew my mind.
And here we are.
This space will act as a companion to Writers With Wrinkles, the go-to podcast for aspiring authors, and those in the trenches, who want to successfully publish a novel...or ten! On the show, we dive deep into writing and the publishing industry, providing expert interviews, insightful discussions, and practical tips to help you navigate the complex world of publishing.
But here we can get more personal. Twice a month (to start!), I’ll share my own experiences travelling this curvy path and what I’ve learned along the way. And I want to hear from you about where you are on yours. We can learn from each other, about that I am certain.
And you CAN write that book!
So thank you for being here. I’ll be back soon. Stay with me by subscribing.
