I am still in the process of redesigning my writing life which is a natural offshoot of the process of digging deep to discover my authentic self. Along the way, I’ve found some great and free resources for writers – treasures discovered during the search for the components of a renewed writing life: a new writing path, a new writing routine and a writing community. I’m sharing these great finds with all of you:
In a few days, on October 14, tweetspeak will launch its next book club discussion, which will focus on Kroeker and Craig’s On Being a Writer.
A sustainable writing life is built from more than the construction of sentences and paragraphs; it emerges from the slow accumulation of days and years
lived intentionally through the habits of the writer.
—Kroeker and Craig, On Being a Writer
You can either buy the book from Amazon or download a free copy so you can join in the discussion. To find out more about this and join the book club, visit tweetspeak.

Another great gift from Andi Cumbo Floyd and her two writer friends: They have combined their books into a single free download (for a limited time only):
I know many of you are voracious readers, too, so do I have a deal for you. Right now, my dear friends Ed Cyzewski, Shawn Smucker, and I have combined three of our titles into one FREE collection on writing. Ed’s book Pray, Write, Grow got me back to a daily practice of reading in the morning and reminds me that the work of prayer lies parallel to the work of writing. Shawn’s book Building a Life Out of Words tells the compelling story of how he came to be a full-time writer and includes chapters from other writers, including me, about how we’ve built a life around writing.

I hope you’ll give some of these discoveries a try…
… and here’s to a great writing journey!
