I am reposting this article from Positive Writer which is worthy of your time and consideration. It lays out the importance of being healthy in Mind, Body, and Spirit to achieve the success you want with your writing (and your life for that matter), and is appropriately titled, THE THREE ESSENTIALS THAT DETERMINE YOUR WRITING SUCCESS.
This is the journey I’ve been on for the past 7 years and I can attest to how it has strengthened my connection to The Muse.
Enjoy and Happy writing!
STORY SPROUTS ANTHOLOGY went live on Amazon on October 29th!
This summer, 19 talented children’s book authors accepted a challenge to workshop, write, revise, polish, and submit two stories – in public, under the pressure of a six-hour deadline, with the promise of publication. On October 29, 2013, their work was revealed with the global release of Story Sprouts Anthology 2013.
Guided by the writing exercises and handouts, anthology authors produced two pieces. One revealed insights “On Writing” and the other was a fictional piece based on a photo prompts. Submissions range from poetry and narrative essay to flash fiction and picture book manuscripts.
Some of the author names will be familiar to Hollywood and literary insiders. Contributor Abi Estrin wrote the animated adaptation of Ben Hur and produced several episodes of On the Road in America. Contributor Lynne Southerland has 20 years experience in Hollywood; her credits include co-directing Mulan 2 and co-producing Disney’s An Extremely Goofy Movie and HBO’s Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child. Contributor Donna Marie Robb’s stories have been published in several literary magazines and she her children’s book reviews have been published in the School Library Journal.
Please encourage our efforts by buying the book in either print or for Kindle at Amazon.
