Be Authentic!

To write authentically, you must be authentic.  In your writing, I suggest drawing on things that create real emotion for you.  Need help getting started?  Think about something that enrages you – write about it! Think of something that frightens you – write about it! Write about a turning point in your life. Whatever you do, make it real. Be true to yourself, and be true to your characters. 


I had a great time presenting my “Write Your Core” workshop at the Colorado Independent Book Publishers Expo last week, as well as talking to everyone at the great Denver Woman’s Press Club and Colorado Authors League Writers’ Fest at the LoDo Tattered Cover.   These opportunities were a great reminder about why we should always support our local independent bookstores!
