Hello

Hello, and welcome to my new blog and podcast. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to get my butt in gear. I have been a slave to procrastination due to my fear of doing what I have dreamed of doing since I was six years old. That dream? To become a writer and well, an artist too. Oh to be a published writer and accomplished artist. And reading, of course, lots of reading good quality books, not shlock. What a life it is turning out to be! Won’t you join me? How about it? Do you struggle with wanting to write but seem never get down to it? Do you enjoy reading? You know what they say? Safety in numbers. Won’t you join me on my Facebook, Pen Wize  Group and of course my podcast, PenWize?

Why join me? My blog and podcast will provide a safe place that will be motivating, inspirational, and most importantly, non-judging. Painting and drawing will be highly encouraged as will the consumption of chocolate and perhaps some red wine. Why painting? Because I love it too paint and who doesn’t enjoy chocolate?

When I get stuck, or my eyes are tired I shift over from writing to painting for a little while. They feed each; the writing feeds the painting, and the painting feeds the writing. The arts are like that you know. They like company. As long as it does not interfere with your primary goal, writing, go ahead and indulge. Don’t be surprised if other areas of the arts beckon to you.

If you have been waiting for some help to get started writing (whether it be creative writing, memoir, mystery, poetry, freelance or non-fiction) to get back to writing, or to continue with your writing, you have found the place. I promise you will be encouraged, supported, and loved. You will not be judged, harshly criticized or ridiculed. So join me! And let’s get started.

My podcast, Pen Wize can found iTunes or iHeart Radio. Don’t forget to join the Pen Wize Facebook Group. It is a closed group for the privacy of our members, and I do vet members before admitting them into the group by checking out their FB pages thoroughly and other social media. The rules are few, and the atmosphere is light but proactive. Active participation will enhance your writing and make a productive writer.
