It's officially been a year since I started creating personalized memoir books. This year, with mother's day right around the corner I have about 45 books to send out to awaiting families ! I'll be taking a short break this month as I'm getting married !! But don't hesitate to inquire about having a book created for a loved one!
Also, say hello to my model. He loves to promote the silk scarves each book can be wrapped in.

A love letter to the derelicts and delinquents. A hymnal for the down-on-their-lucks and the never-had-any-to-begin-withs. Touchable stories of the desert, Hollywood and the Rust Belt. I’m excited to have my hands on @spentsaints, penned by the incomparable @artrambo. Perfect beach day accompaniment. ⛱️😎🙌

Let’s be honest: the world doesn’t need more stories exactly like the stories we already have. What might the world need? Your story. Because there is no one exactly like you. ✨
Your value as a writer lies less in “idea” than in interest and execution. Skill can be learned, but of equal importance is approach. If what you write is of real interest to you and delivered in your unique voice, it is unlikely another could replicate that.
✨

Inspiration is all around us. One must only look (outside of Mimi’s office window, while wearing a pair of dirty glasses). YES! This really is right outside my window, and I only just now noticed. LOL. #mimisoffice #arizonawriters #romancewriter #phalliccactus

Since style of communication is considered one of the most significant of human differences, it’s worth examining how this component of personality affects what we write, the way we write, and how readers respond to our work.

According to author Dani Shapiro, a writer’s raw material is not the blank page, but the rough draft. Yet many writers lose momentum when it comes time to revise. What’s worse, these writers often feel guilty that they haven’t completed or published their creative projects . . . already!
_____________________
Look: it’s worthy work to turn a rough draft into a realized dream, but this work can also be challenging. It requires a fresh voice, technical mastery of craft elements, and a healthy dose of reverence for your creative process.

A photograph by Scott Baxter from "26 Blocks," an ambitious project by writer and curator Joey Robert Parks -- he asked 26 writers to collaborate with 26 photographers to interpret 26 blocks of historic downtown Phoenix. Accompanying Baxter's photo is a poem by Sally Ball about the history of Third Avenue and Washington Street with a message about not succumbing to oblivion. The Renaissance's lower level is hosting this worthwhile exhibit at least through 2017. #phoenixhistory #arizonaartists #arizonawriters #dtphx #dtphxart #26blocks #renhotels #phxnavigator

What format do you guys like more?? I typically write my poetry on my phone and then type it on my computer, still trying to figure out which fits my aesthetic more. •Kahri L. O'Brien

Strictly a "me throwing myself out there" post: I've lived in this great state of Arizona for roughly 8 years now. I love it to bits. A friend of mine said "with all your adventures, you should write a book!" So I did, for my Smalls I adore to teach and read to. Over a year I've written, edited, re-wrote, conversed with published authors and illustrators, and finalized a children's book dedicated to the awesomeness that is the outdoor Arizona. It has the Salt River horses, hiking spots, mountains, and cactus. Now, just looking for a partner/publisher. If ya know one, send 'em my way. Thank you @julzbrown6 for all the encouragement!! #arizonatourism #instagramaz #igersphx #arizonawriters #childrensbook #allaboutarizona #bookaboutarizona #teacherturnedauthor #publisher #arizonaisgorgeous #lifeisgoodarizona #whatiseeinaz #arizonahiking #writer #processwriting #rebels_united #rebels_nature #booksaboutnature #desert #desertlife #saguaronationalpark #communityofchristiancreatives #onlyinaz2017

Does your opening hook readers?

______________
Readers enter the world of a short story blind, without the benefit of jacket copy or a synopsis to guide them. A smart author provides a toehold by zeroing in on 3 questions readers yearn to answer.

_______________
Read the opening of your work-in-progress to see if you can identify the plot, clock, and occasion for story. Learn how via The Writing Cycle's link (in the comments). _______________

Ok so sometimes I think I read way too much writing advice than I should, because then I get all paranoid that I am doing everything wrong so I stop, I reverse, I start from scratch again only to read another article giving the opposite opinion and advice so again, I stop, I reverse, I start again. The reality is that I never went to school for writing. I have no effing clue what I'm doing or the "right" way to go about it. I read writing books and they are great but when it comes time to execute I can't remember what they said to do.
I just read an article that said something to the extent that your query will get thrown into the "no thanks" pile because agents and editors can spot an amateur within the first few lines of your story, if your trying too hard. Gah! Was I trying too hard? I don't know... Maybe... Crap! That article also said not to ... I thumbed through a book this morning that talked about idea debt and how having too many ideas can make your work suffer because you don't know which one to go with. Fudge sticks up a fudge tree. I have been typing up all my half finished ideas so I could have everything on my computer, am I just finding another way to procrastinate? Probably.
The idea of setting aside all my half written story ideas and starting something new from scratch is intimidating. It's like meeting someone new and slowly peeling back their layers. It took me seven years to develop all the plotlines and twists and personalities and quirks for my first query worthy book. I am a writing sloth. I know what I need to do. There are options. Join a writing group. Find a mentor. Enroll in a class where I can get feedback. Am I freaking out any of you peoplephobes yet? Yeah... Me too. 😆 But it must be done. Must? Crap. Am I trying too hard again?
I salute you all my fellow writers. Published or not, writing is hard. Luckily, we are all badasses so I don't think that's going to stop us. 🙌🏻
