James Tissot, The Beatitudes Sermon, c. 1890, Brooklyn Museum. [PD-US] When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he had sat down, his disciples came to him. He began to teach them, saying: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God. Ble ..read more

Pam's Rocket-Launch into Children's Picture Books

I self-published my first children’s picture book on November 1st and am working on a second one. I never planned to write children’s books, but one thing rocketed to another and here I am. The story… On October 8th, I was at a local festival selling my books. I’ve had a booth at Sebastopolooza every year since my first print novel released. I enjoy meeting new and existing fans, and even lots of friends and family who aren’t readers stop by to say hi. It’s like one big family reunion. In the lull between chatting with friends and selling books, I watched shoppers as they visited other ..read more

Writing with Joy

   Hello everyone. Cate here. I want to talk about some wonderful writing advice today. Writing with Joy!   I love to listen to authors talk about writing.  One of the few benefits that came out of the pandemic was the plethora of opportunities to see authors interviewed online. Many bookstores, libraries, authors or groups of authors started doing FB Live series or You Tube series. I'd be lying if I said I haven't spent more than a few (hundred?) hours down the YouTube rabbit hole hopping from one interview to another.  Several of those interviews were with #1 NY Tim ..read more

Ready, Set, Retreat!

Erica here, coming to you from the very frosty, snowy north.  Did you know that I love a good writer's retreat? And that I try to get in several during the year? Not only because of the social aspect, but because writing retreats WORK for me. I am productive on writing retreats. I get right up to the coal face and get to work when I'm on a writing retreat. My theory is, I need to be productive if I'm going to spend the money to go on a retreat. I must have something to show for it.  I usually have a goal in mind before I go of what I want to accomplish, which is most often a cert ..read more

The Calling of Saints Peter and Andrew, 1603/1606, Caravaggio, England. [PD-US] When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled: Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death light has arisen. From that time on, Jesus began to preach and ..read more

Putting Your Best Foot Forward

  Happy Thursday everyone, Winnie Griggs here. I was cleaning out an old file cabinet the other day and came across an article from the company magazine of a place where I used to work. It was titled Some Suggestions to Make a Fresh Start on the Job.  I’m not sure why I held on to it – I haven’t had a regular day job for over a dozen years so it’s at least that old. And it was really just a list of bullet points. But as I glanced over the article I thought, with a bit of tweaking and expansion, it might actually have some application to the writing life. So here is what I came up w ..read more

National Thesaurus Day!

By Debby Giusti When I realized today was National Thesaurus Day, I reached for my copy of Roget’s International Thesaurus, blew off the dust and wondered why a favorite reference book had, over the last few years, been ignored on my office bookshelf. Flipping through the pages of my rather aged Fourth Edition advertised to contain 256,000 words and phrases, I had a renewed appreciation for the effort involved in creating such an outstanding tool for writers. Intrigued by a book that continues to be a reliable resource, I wanted to learn about the mastermind who had compiled the first thesaur ..read more

A World Within a Book

 (Long post warning...and giveaway) :) A few months ago I just finished reading an Amelia Peabody book (again) and I am (again) completely captivated by the world Elizabeth Peters created. Now, I only picked it up as research for a book I wrote, but from the first chapter, I was drawn into the setting of Cairo and the arid environment in which Egyptologists and archeologists saturated themselves to uncover ancient relics. Elizabeth Peters’ book was thick with a world I’d never experienced, but through her story, I traveled to Egypt, felt the busy-ness of Cairo’s streets, and even delved ..read more
