Don't worry about publishers or marketing or query letters or any of those things that will drag you down after you publish your first novel. Just write. Write every single day even if you think you're spewing crap. The other day, a new writer asked me what font size she should be using. If you're worried about font size instead of your plot holes or your character arc, you have a problem. Just write. (less)

[image error]My partner and I got married two days before conference, so the whole thing was kind of like a working honeymoon. Despite that, the Golden Crown Literary Society this year felt like a homecoming. Perhaps that sounds odd, with over 100 new people this year, but it felt intimate, loving, and welcoming.


We had a diverse crowd, different ages, different races. It was wonderful to see so...

Abigail... thank you, I will read your writings. I am neither coolly intellectual nor a cerebral think-tank. If anything, I am creative and spiritual. I have been writing my entire life, but I lived with the negative thinking that told me I was not good enough. When I started changing my own life, one of the first things I did was ban negative self-talk. I wasn't always successful, but it helped and my second novel will be published next month. I do want to heal people... that is why I have started writing a spirituality 101 column on Lightworker's World. Blessings to you, my friend. :)


Abigail You have a an extraordinary gift.


Abigail How did you discover that you had a talent for writing? I would also really like you to go and read some of my writing that I've put up on Goodreads. Are you an emotional thinker, cerebral think-tank, coolly intellectual, spiritual, a creative personality, artistic, are you addicted to the information-age? Do you want to heal people through words? I find worth in everything. Everything around me acquires value and then becomes a commodity in what I write about.
