R.M. Snider comes from a family of writers and storytellers. As a child, she made up stories each night to tell her little sister, Elizabeth. Years later, while pursuing a career in commercial interior design, R.M. discovered her love for writing. Since then, she has written numerous stories, blogs and poems, as well as published three novels in The River Series- Bordertown Gypsy, Lynchtown Wolf, and Rivertown Crooner.

Out of their infertility, R.M. and her husband developed a passion for orphans and foster children. In 2013, they teleported into the untamed world of foster care and eventually were blessed to adopt three children whom they first fostered. The five of them live in the country near Fort Smith, Arkansas. When she’s not writing

But it's like a sport- you practice and get better. As I've learned how to write better, I've learned better ways to deal with writer's block, too. For one, I listen to where God is guiding me. I know that'll sound weird to some people, and that's ok, but it works wonders for me. I can feel inside myself when I'm writing something and it's just not coming. It's like making a glass of lemonade by squeezing one lemon at a time. Then, when I say, "Ok, God. What is it You want me to say?" Then, eventually, I'll hear it somehow (through music, taking a walk, just through living life) and all the sudden the ideas are flowing and it's like pouring lemonade from a pitcher. I always know that when I'm squeezing one lemon at a time, I need to stop for a while. It can be as quick as a trip to the restroom and, while I'm washing my hands, it'll all become clear. Or it might be taking a walk outside. Or listening to music while I'm driving in my car. Or listening to a podcast or even reading the Bible. (Side note- I'm kind of funny about what I read while I'm writing. When I'm writing fiction, I tend to stay far away from reading other fiction, aside from what I read to my kiddos at bedtime. I just don't want my head caught up in too many fictional worlds.) So, for me, writer's block is all about listening to where God's taking my story. He's a way better writer than me and I'm eager to write His story because I look at history and I see how complex and creative it is and I know God's got this. He's gonna give me the words to write if I just listen.(less)

I get to live in a dreamworld of my own creation all day long. I get to share stories that I love with the world. Writing allows me to be creative. My thoughts come out more clearly when I'm writing down my words versus when I'm speaking them. I love being a writer!(less)

They’re So Lucky

It happened again a few weeks ago. I was innocently discussing my kids’ adoption with a stranger when, all of a sudden, these words popped out of their mouth.

“They’re so lucky to have you.”

This phrase and others like it have always caught me a little off guard and, once again, this left me asking: How do I educate a total stranger in just a few short seconds about the fact that my kids are, in fact, not...

My best advice is to practice. Writing is like a sport. To be good at it you have to practice. I began seriously writing in 2008 and I didn't officially publish anything until 2017. That nine years wasn't wasted- it was practice. My writing has ev... See Full Answer
