The Writer's Practice Newsletter
Fall 2018


With the weather changing, we're digging out those warm slippers and spending more time at home. It's a great time of improve your writing practice. Some ideas:
  • Take a walk. Either before or after you sit down to work, get the blood pumping. Dickens, among many other writers, did this every day. It works.
  • Try making a task list for what you're writing. When you feel stuck let yourself pick the most exciting task off the list.
  • Give yourself a minimum goal, maybe 250 words, 5 days per week.
Our coaches can help you create a solid, lasting writing practice and finish big projects. Check out our coaching services:

Some ways to celebrate National Book Month:
  • Visit your local independent book store.
  • Thank a writer! Send a note of appreciation for their work via Twitter or the contact info on their website.
  • Recommend a book to others, either on social media or old-fashioned word of mouth. (We'll recommend Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.)
  • Join your local Friends of the Library group.
  • Write! Your book needs you to write it. 

We are so excited for novel  coach Erica Wright's latest  novel, The Blue Kingfisher, available everywhere. Publishers Weekly called it a "vividly told tale" and CrimeReads named it one of the most anticipated crime books of 2018! Wow, Erica! We're so proud to have you on our team.

And the excitement doesn't stop there! Member and manuscript consult client Charles Halsted's poetry collection Breaking Eighty will be available from Finishing Line Press in mid-November. Congrats, Charles!
Also, memoir member Nick Reynolds' piece "Never Too Late" was accepted by the esteemed journal, Appalachia. We're excited for you, Nick!
