Developing Your Writer's Toolkit: How to Jumpstart Your Writing and Set Yourself Up for Success
e-Guide (available for download with mailing list signup)
Stop staring at blinking cursors and blank notebook pages. Stop thinking that maybe you're not really a writer after all. Stop setting unrealistic goals for yourself and wallowing in defeat. Build a writer's toolkit, and start becoming a better writer today.
My e-Guide is a step-by-step plan for learning how to put pen to paper every time you sit down to write. It's chock full of tips, writing exercises and prompts, and professional resources to aid in the development of your own virtual writer's toolkit. Working through the guide is a quick and easy way to discover what kind of writer you really are, as well as figuring out what motivates, energizes, and inspires you to write. Sign up for my mailing list to receive a free PDF of the guide (I promise you'll only receive 1-2 emails per month with writing updates and helpful resources!).

Creating a Memory Tree for Your Memoir
video course at Udemy.com
You have so many great stories to tell! Some of them might even make an interesting memoir...if you could figure out how to write one! For beginning writers interested in taking the first step toward writing their memoir, I've developed a brainstorming tool called a "memory tree" to help you get started. My Udemy course is a series of video lectures and demonstrations that clearly outlines the goals of writing a memoir, the process for creating your own memory tree, and the next steps once your memory tree is complete. By the end of the course, you will have a clearer focus on what story you should tell and how best to tell it!
