  • I’m a writer, too!

    On 12.01.09, I estimated that I had about 32,000 words left to write to complete my first draft of the opening book in my paranormal mystery series, THE LOST & FOUND.

    Here's my progress updated 2.12.10:

New for Seattle-area bloggers: let’s build us some content!

Blogging regularly can be difficult over the long-term because it demands that you generate fresh post material on a regular, deadline-oriented basis. For writers who lack self-motivation or butt up against writer’s block from time to time, this can spell doom for the blog. However, most bloggers don’t set out to fail and wish they had some options in their back pockets for keeping their content fresh and alive even when it’s not forthcoming or even possible in a certain time frame.

Enter Content Building for Bloggers! Content Builder for Bloggers is all about giving bloggers structural templates and themes for blogging.  Should a blogger run dry of fresh ideas, he or she can then turn to these templates and themes as prompts for inspiration.

Now’s the time to sign up for a fun and motivating class on generating new blog content!

Content Builder for Bloggers is a weekly meetup in which an assignment is detailed and given to each student/blogger. They each then spend the following week writing their own blog entries in answer to the assignment. In live or interactive workshops formats, students/bloggers also their peers’ blogs and leave comments, wherever possible, in reply. The following week, students gather live or interactively to discuss how the assignment went, and then a new assignment is detailed and given. 

Each series meets for 4 weeks, with each session offering a new strategy for content building. I have enough themes, ideas and templates for bloggers to fill a full year (52 weeks) of classes.

Currently, I offer this as a 1:1 mentorship service (available year-round) and NOW, for Seattle-area bloggers, as a live weekly workshop!

NEW! The Bainbridge Island Park District has opened up a new live series for this class! If interest is high, it could potentially continue weekly throughout the year. This is a fun, affordable and useful way to learn how to be more prolific with your blog without having to scrape out your brain every time you sit down to right a blog post. Plus, you’ll meet other area bloggers and develop a readership among you, as well as discover other great writing out in the blogosphere.

Let me help you generate fresh material for your blog in this affordably priced class. For details:
