How I Found the Write Path



How I Found the Write Path is available.

And it’s FREE.

The e-book is a compilation of letters by 60 authors who wrote to their new-writer selves. The book is free to help writers.

This was my letter  for the blogfest back in May. My letter is included in the book.


From one of the project’s founder and co-editor, Carrie Butler  on why she started this project:

“Because it’s one of the most crucial periods in a writer’s life—full of nerves and hope we refuse to acknowledge. We’ve all been there.

That’s why over sixty of us have written letters to our past selves, candidly sharing things we don’t always discuss in public. The hope is that those of you who haven’t published will learn from our experiences. And those of you who have published? Well, you just might realize you’re not alone.”


From one of the co-editor, PK Hrezo  on why she wants you to download this book:

“I can't tell you how excited I am about this book. There is seriously SO much great advice compiled in this baby. No matter what stage you're in of your writing, you will most definitely find something beneficial in this book. And most likely, you'll be nodding your head in agreement as you read. (I sure was!)”


Here’s my take:

This book is for writers at every stage of their journey. Hopefully new writers will learn from our mistakes. And experienced writers will commiserate. Every writer can find inspiration.

    1. Robyn, I wish there had been a book like this out there for me when I started. I'm honored to be in it with you too. We're going to be in 3 anthologies together in a short time!

    1. Liz, I agree. I'm glad Carrie thought of it. I might've had a different writing path if I'd had a book like this to read back in 2006.

    1. Natalie, I agree. I wish someone had explained how this whole writing/publishing process worked when I started out. If many people are saying the same thing in one place, it's hard to ignore the advice!

  7. What a fabulous collection of stories. I love that so many writers shared what they have learned with their younger selves. Your letter is one we can all relate to and it is good to know that we are not alone! I laughed about the "invest in Apple" part- but definitely good advice. :)

    Writing is definitely a much longer process than I ever realized!
