Check out Scarlett Van Dijk’s wonderful and informative writing blog, where she spotlights writers and their tales of creativity, publishing, the creative process and much more.
I recently wrote a guest post for her titled ‘Embrace Failure’. Don’t let the rejections get you down, keep trying!
Scarlett is part of a strong writing community on Linkedin, where writers in all stages of their careers get together online to talk about their craft. Every month on her blog she features a guest writer and I look forward to these posts because, let’s face it; writing is a solitary profession and I enjoy being part of a community of like-minded people, who understand the challenges of turning words into stories.
For those of you who follow my blog, you’ll have noticed a distinct lack of content of late. When you’ve read my guest post, you’ll understand why. My thanks to Scarlett because that post has helped me to realized that it’s time to stop the self-pity party and start showing up at the page. And after all, isn’t that what writers do?
