The State of the Website Address

books, writing, tips, publishing, ebooks, character traits, point of view, creativity

Or, The State of the Url Address

Now that the holidays are over, I have a lot of things to share with you.

First, as promised, is an article on the author, Ilie Ruby. She will stand among the greats many years from now. This deserves an acknowledgement. I had planned to post it right after the contest, but became quite sick from the chemo and complications. But things are on the mend such as they are.

And then we will begin a number of posts on writer’s block and understanding it from the standpoint of neurophysiology. There will also be tips on your writing and how to find sources you never even dreamed of; and we will begin posts on the writing craft itself. (see writers’ resources page.) We’ll have a tour of my home library and my new e-book and just what this once Luddite turned geek feels about the whole process.I have some true hilarious stories to share.  I also would like your input on a number of items and scandals. Please do shout out on any subjects you wish covered. The scope is broad and includes all subjects in the resource page and then some. We will set up a writing resolution format using mind maps (for the right side of the brain) and spreadsheets (for the left side). This will help you to reach your writing goals as painlessly as possible. It’s a system for doing things naturally and then pulling things together like magic.

And more contests are coming your way!

I have a new site to show you that is free and like a muse ready whenever you feel like creating. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, I’ve found that is true and you can reach your writing goals with finess using this beauty. Just wait! This one you probably haven’t hear of!

If you haven’t signed up to receive newsletters there is a form below or you can sign up on the right side above the fold. 

Also, if you happened to get a number of posts during the night; those were old posts that I forgot to click “publish off” while I trimming down my page to aid in cell phone viewing. Many pardons.

I have also added a number of items that will make this site more of a community. You will find a news feed, or what I term the Newz Feed with great articles culled from literary , arts and culture websites. When you are done reading just click on the header which will bring you back here. I would love to see a free exchange of ideas with like-minded people. Or not so like-minded. Differing opinions are welcomed here as long as discussions are held constructively. (Don’t I sound like my old school-marm self?!)

As always, I continue each day to add links and information in the Website for Writers page. If you wish to add your own writing site, drop me a line through the contact page. Or if you think of another site that you like and believe will aid fellow writers, please do the same.

I send you all happy blessings and good wishes for this new year. 

Yours truly,

  1. Hi Lee, good to hear from you again. I didn’t realize that you had been ill — I’m sorry to hear about that. I can definitely get your enthusiasm to support writers and it looks like a lot of people are benefiting from it!

    • So good to see you again. I really like the methods I’m cooking up to help the creative process. And speaking of that; how are your projects coming along?

  2. I’m really excited to read those posts on writing, Lee! I’m finally gettin’ back in the swing of things and could use that great advice. I do hope you’re feeling well today. Take care. 🙂

    • Hi sweetheart. I’ve got them all worked out. And many more exciting ones. I just need to get my bones to work. Imagine a writer who can’t move her fingers 😉 I have physical therapy coming over today but on my list was heading over to see how you were and then I got an email newsletter from you!! I’ll be stopping by. Great to see you here!

  3. Sounds like a lot of great posts to come, I look forward to all your great work to come in 2013 and wishing you a speedy recovery

  4. Love the new look! And you have intriqued me as well. All of your plans and stories and posts. Looking forward to seeing what you pour out.

  5. I just had a look at the resources page… comprehensive!

    You’ve successfully intrigued me. I look forward to your future posts! Neurophysiology and hilarious stories, come to me!

    • Amit! How was your trip? So good to hear from you. I had written you awhile ago an explanation of neurolgical formulas a long time ago and it became a mini-neuro lesson. I am happy to try and condense it if you are interested, Glad you like the resource page and hope it helps you. I am the human bookmark ;).

      • I just added 3 books to my to-read list, thank you! (the other 4 I have already consumed – they are golden; the books that got me started on my journey)

    • Oh, I can’t wait for that one either. I have some in queue before that but I may have to move it up as it is special and integrates all of the things we need as writers to free associate, contemplate, fall into a visual (or many) and create worlds. Thanks for stopping by, Patti!

  6. Hi Lee,

    Writer’s block and neurophysiology, what a fascination combination. I can’t wait to hear more about that. Sounds like an exciting year ahead, I’m looking forward to checking out all the great resources.


    • Hi, Dave! I would have a ball if I didn’t have to work on back pages! So glad you are looking forward to it as well. I had comment luv up here before I switched (am switching is more like it) to disqus. What are your thoughts/comments on the comments…;)

  7. Priska! I just got this thing up and running. I tested it on a post. And of course, right after my silly State of the Website address where I ask all to band together and answer my call for what they need to concentrate on as writers..not one can because no one can write on the writing site. Imagine my chagrin. Thank you so much for stopping by. I see you also wrote on the post announcing you as the winner!! Once again, thanks. I hope you have had a chance to start reading the book, but if it is busy for you, I recommend you hold off as nothing spoils a book by starting it and then not getting back to it right away. You’ve had that experience, I’m sure. This one will get your writer-juices flowing. Next post is about the book. Not a review because I think a fourth grader could discern that I am rather fond of it. 😉

  8. Hi Lee,
    Sounds exciting and just the thing I need to get my writing back into swing after having writers block toward the end of 2012. My 2013 resolution is to write.

    • I love that resolution. That’s what I’m here for. If you need any resources check out my resource page. I am always here to help with a hurdle or encouragement. Just write me through the contact page if you would like or post here for encouragement from others as well. It is what this site is about.

Any thoughts on this? What is your opinion?
