Even if what you're writing is bad, even if you end up having to delete it all later, the act of writing is the only thing will move us past fear, negative voices in our heads, and creative dry spells into fields of fresh inspiration.

I also believe that, in addition to writing, it is important to feed our creativity in other areas. Listen to good music, visit an art museum, pick up a paintbrush. I engage in a number of secondary artistic pursuits - quilting, painting, piano - for the sheer pleasure of it. I don't play the piano nearly as well as I write, but this and my other secondary art forms help feed and inform my primary art form - writing.(less)

You know, right after I finished it, I thought I might. I loved that book and those characters so much. But when I looked at the cast of secondary characters, I just didn't see anyone who I thought could carry a whole book. Now, that doesn't mean I won't wake up one day and have a Nilson's Bay plot in my head that is just aching to be written; it took me years before I was ready to give Mary Dell Templeton her own book in BETWEEN HEAVEN AND TEXAS, and three years after that before I was ready to write the sequel, my March 29th release, FROM HERE TO HOME. So it is entirely possible that I will write more Nilson's Bay books someday, but I don't have plans to do so right now. (less)

Breakfast Casserole: The Monte Cristo Edition

The world is full of brilliant people.


Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Sir Issac Newton, Wendell Berry, Edith Wharton, and Stephen Sondheim are a small sampling of the famous names I feel should be included on any list of brilliant individuals. 


But what about the not-so-famous brilliant people? The unsung heroes whose contributions, large and small, make the world better? For example, the person who

The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick
"I absolutely loved this story. It held me, spoke to me, let me immerse into it. The story was wise, funny and had wonderfully brilliant characters. I love it when a book can give me hope and a sense of peace... if only for just a few blissful hours."

Hi Gretchen, You know someone asked me this the other day and I just couldn’t remember. I know I had been listening to a song while I was running one morning and it struck me as very plaintive and raw but what song it was is something I have forgotte See Full Answer

“I realized that I'd been comparing the inside of my life with the outside of everyone else's; measuring my own fortunes against the cheerful how-are-you-I'm-fine facade that people put on for each other.”
Marie Bostwick

“Between one breath and the next, your whole world can change. ”
Marie Bostwick, A Single Thread

“That’s the thing I’ve learned about mountains: the joy you feel at scaling them is in direct proportion to how high and impassable the peak appears to be once you’re on the other side of it.”
Marie Bostwick, Just In Time
