Dear Readers,  I want to begin by telling you what an incredible experience it has been writing for you week after week. I’ve always loved talking about books and writing with other bookworms, and I’ve so enjoyed discussing with all of you.  With all of that said, I’m sad to say that I’m going to be taking the month of July off.

Just a quick reminder that if you didn’t read last week’s post, “Writing Craft: Reading to Write — What is Writing Craft?” then go ahead and read that before we begin because each post in the month of June is a part of our blog series, and each new post will build on the one before.  What is a writer’s purpose?

Quick Announcement: Welcome back, everyone! Before we get into today’s blog, I wanted to say “thank you” for your patience!

Happy Wednesday, y’all, and welcome back to a new blog. I wanted to finish out the month of May by introducing a new series I’ll be starting in June. And, I’m going to do that by first talking about the writing process. The first thing I want you to know is that every writer has a different writing process, and all are perfectly fine; There is no right way to go through your process. What works for me may not work for you, and what works for you may not work for the next writer. Your writing process is something…
