|Making a place to share the journey with other writers.|
Once upon a time there was a writer who loved words. And as much as she loved words, she loved other writers. Her goal was to find a place where they could share their journey, learning and growing together. That writer was me.
From the very beginning, the focus of this blog has stayed the same.
I’ve always wanted this to be a place where writers could come to learn more about the craft and the business of writing.
|Since 2009 this blog has grown|
When I started this blog, I was barely above beginner level myself. But I was already active in the industry, and knew many of the experts. I shared what I learned from them here, and this little blog began to grow. Since 2009 it has grown a lot, and now there are over 50,000 of you who stop by each month to learn something and share your thoughts. And for that, I’m more grateful than you can imagine.
I believe the best way to show my gratitude is to take this site to the next level. I've always used what I learned through research, classes, books, and experience to share with you here. Now, I'm going straight to the source and bringing the experts themselves here.
You’ll be seeing a lot of new, regular posters here on The Write Conversation. They come in all shapes, sizes and genders. They also reflect the many different places along a writer’s journey—from industry giant to those just starting out. But I hope you'll notice that they all have two things in common:
- A love of writing—in all its many forms.
- A heart to help others grow into success.
Rest assured that I’m not going anywhere, I’ll still be here.

Social Media for writers
I’m not giving up my Social Media Monday, and will post at least one more day (often more) every week. I’m also excited to still be able to offer guest posters the opportunity to share their thoughts. Very little content, except the authors of the posts themselves will change. This blog will continue to offer information on all aspects of writing and on the industry itself.
Here is a sneak peek at a few of those who will be joining us regularly (some have already begun):
- DiAnn Mills
- Alton Gansky
- Charity Tinnin
- Lori Hatcher
- Jess Keller
- Bruce Brady
- Lynn H. Blackburn
- Vonda Skelton
I’d love to here your thoughts about what is coming on The Write Conversation. I’d also like to know what topics you want to see covered in upcoming posts.
Don’t forget to join the conversation!
