Inspired by authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Lloyd Alexander, and Madeleine L’Engle, Beth determined to become a writer when she was still in grade school. That path meandered through an attempt at astronomy, a linguistics degree, and a brief flirtation with anthropology, but during it all, she worked on her writing, producing numerous short stories, and even completing two (unpublished) novels while in high school and college. Since deciding to focus on her writing, she has published a number of fantasy short stories (and a lone science fiction piece) in various magazines and anthologies.

To fight the dislike of writing when I wasn't inspired, I made myself write 2-4 pages a day, no matter how bad I thought it was. To keep myself from despair over my first drafts, I cultivated a mindset that I could always revise. To prevent "rejectomancy" (the idea that if I was rejected that meant I was no good) I asked a friend to screen my responses from publishers.

Over the years I have read books that have helped shape my view of the world, and I want to be able to give that gift to others. I write about what's important to me, and when someone else reads what I have written and understands it, it makes me feel validated. I also love those times when my creativity and inspiration is high, and I feel as if the words almost fall from my fingers and into the keyboard. Working with one's creative self is a tremendous experience.(less)

There is often an assumption made that writer’s block is all one thing. That also implies there is one single solution for all writer’s block. But actually it’s a complex of factors, and for each writer, different ones may be in play, and even the same reasons can have different impacts. It is, however, something many writers struggle with over the course of their careers, it’s significant, and... Read more of this blog post »
