If you’re here, you’re either a writer or you want to be one. Hooray! Welcome.
Or maybe you’ve read my novels and want to learn a little more about me and my life as a writer. Welcome! I’m glad you’re here.
Maybe you’re a writer who has fallen out of love with writing, or is struggling with the process, or wants to make a living from writing but can’t seem to make it happen. Have a seat. You’re not alone. Welcome.
Maybe you have no clue while you’re here. That’s OK! Welcome.
As I stated on the About page, I’ve started this blog to share my thoughts, experiences, and lessons on writing based on my book The Writer’s Habit.
Three components make up the writer’s habit: knowledge, skill, and desire. Knowledge is about what to do. Skill is about how to do it. Desire is about wanting to do it.
With humor, kindness, stories, and a smile, I aim to motivate and inspire you to fall in love with (if you’re not already or currently) and stay connected to the joy of writing, and to help you develop your authenticity not only as writers, but also as individuals. It’s not just about being a better writer. It’s about living a better life.
Participation isn’t mandatory, but I hope you’ll share feedback, ask questions, or contribute to and continue the conversation in the comments section. Because that’s what I want this blog to be: an ongoing conversation.
I’m so excited about this new venture, and I invite you to be a part of it. Ready? Here we go!
Activity: If you’ve looked at this site or my official author site, then you’ve learned something about me. I’d like to learn something about you! In the Comments, please tell me something about your writing, your goals, and one of your favorite things. It can go something like this:
I’m Elisa. I’ve written ten books (8 novels, a memoir, and a book about writing), I’m here to foster my love of writing (and teaching), and help others do the same. One of my favorite things is freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
