Writing Tip!

I am making a list of writing tips. My sister, author Candace Simar, and I will be hosting another “Writing in the Garden” on Tuesday, August 28th. During one of the afternoon sessions, Candace and I will share our best of the best writing tips. We have so many  it will be difficult to choose which ones to share.

Here’s a sneak preview of my favorite tip:

Print all of your writing (even if it’s only a rough draft) and put it in a 3-ring binder. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your writing expands to fill the book!  It’s been a life saver when my computer crashed, a quick reference,  and a reminder as to how much work I have done.

P.S. If you would like information about August 28th’s “Writing in the Garden” in Brainerd, Minnesota, please comment below and I’ll be happy to send the flyer to you. It will be a packed day of writing and learning about writing.

    Will there be an opportunity for a one-on-one consult and advice?

    Yes, absolutely! You can send me a page of writing before the day and I will meet with you regarding the work. Students tell me the consultations can be very helpful when you are working on a piece and have lost perspective or are not sure where to go next.
