It’s okay to take some time to take a step back and reflect on where you have come from and where you want to go.  It’s okay to take a moment and let yourself feel like a person and not a “writer” when you don’t feel you have anything more to say.  I can see …
There isn’t a challenge where you simply go and start typing.  There are emotions upon emotions that factor into the idea of getting back into your writing.  This is especially true when you have stopped for a long while.  All those lovely blank journals you bought when you were writing that are, sadly, still blank. …

A National Book Award Finalist. An Amazon Best Book of the Month in May 2014.  A Booklist Starred Review.  A Heather’s Pick from the CEO of Chapters Indigo. The list of accolades goes on. I was captivated by All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by Anthony Doerr the instant I finished the first …
In general, most writers publish their work with the intent of earning some income.  The idea is that over time they publish more and there will be a snowball effect that happens to them.
