For Writers

Heeeeyyyyy writerly folks!  🙂  I'm so glad you've dropped by.  Let's have some fun!

Creativity Prompts // Character Creation Lab // Workshop Freebies // NaNoWriMo Writer's Toolbox

In this nook of the website I've compiled exercises, tips, and tricks for you to use in your pursuit of constructing your novel worlds and peoples.

I know how tough it is to get your muse to cooperate and to bring things to life in your head--much less on the page.

I've been a municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo for going on 6 years, and I've been coaching worldbuilding, noveling, and character creation for 7.  I've been writing professionally since 2006, and for fun since...well.  Kindergarten.  🙂  Along my own writing journey I've written exercises to push my muse and help me visualize what populates my worlds: plants, animals, environments, people.

Come on in--I'm looking forward to sharing them with you!
