About Pen Wize

The Pen Wize was created in June 2016 to provide a place where all kinds of writers can discuss the process of writing, issues that come up in writing, their fears surrounding writing, and successes.  I have spoken with many people who say they used to write, want to write, or want to get back their writing but don’t know how to get going. After a series of excuses about life getting in the way, each one finished with, “it’s a lonely solitary life…” It can be, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

In addition to my blog, there is a podcast, a Facebook Group, Pen Wize, and sometimes, there are Write-ins. Write-ins are specific times and dates for us to get together and write at local coffee shops or online. It is a fabulous way to have company while we write, take short breaks to clear up a writing question, and socialize a bit. For example, there will be times the writing session goes long enough we will need a meal break. Each person orders at the coffee shop or prepares something simple and then brings it back to eat along with everyone else at our computer desks or tables.

Each site is meant to be interactive and proactive. You can call me, leave a voicemail, message me or email with your writing questions, writing life questions, and topics you would like to see covered on the Pen Wize blog or podcast.

May find joy here and be productively writing!
