Why We Love Awesome – What Workshops Can Teach You

imagesA090JUW1 idea of theme Yesterday was the last session of the “For Theme’s Sake” workshop given by Mary and Teresa, awesome people. I cannot say enough about these two women. They cheer us, writer’s, with an enthusiasm that we all need. I love their willingness to teach authors and share their well of knowledge.

I have had the pleasure of meeting other authors through this workshop and my critique group. We are all trying to find our best (writer) voice.


It’s wonderful to kick around ideas and knowledge.  It’s a delight to be around people who have or are working towards a finished novel, it’s inspiring, educational and confident building.


I really enjoyed the workshop; the teachers, students and the content. I learned so much and am more confident as I aim to deliver a story that will keep my readers turning the page.

Thank you Mary E. Knippel and Teresa LeYung-Ryan

  3. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    • Sometimes you just have to start writing, even if it’s not what you want as your “starting point” once the words flow you can go back an delete the unnecessary pieces. Thinking about writing or contemplating the scene and words are never a waste of time! Writing is a process. Remember also our rough draft is never the final draft.
