Hello, Writers and Authors! Here you will find information on the business of writing as well as ways to help you stay healthy and improve your quality of life as a writer.


Are you dreaming of living the author’s life?


Imagine sitting in a beach chair on a colorful beach towel laid on the sand beneath a large umbrella shielding you from the sun.

You look up from the laptop for a moment to see streams of seaweed rolling in the surf.

The sun glistens on deep blue waters out in the distance as you hear the crash of waves and fizz of foam sweep across the shore.

The briny sea air fills your senses with each breath you take in.

You notice your phone and the time reveals it’s only 10:00 in the morning.

Ah…this all sounds great, no worry, no concerns, just peace-the author’s life.



So, can a writer make a living and optimize their lifestyle?


A question a lot of writers are asking. I am no expert in the world of writing, but I have found some smart ways to help me build-up my writing business as an author. I'm still learning a lot and exploring creative ways to optimize my writing lifestyle. Maybe you are here on the same journey as I am?


Hi, I'm Heather. I love creating stories. And like you, I am a writer too! I enjoy writing my children's fantasy series, Legends of the Five Realms. 




Book One: Colors of the World: Adventures                                            Book Two: Guardian of the Dream Tree 
































                                                  I enjoy writing poetry too! Quiet Reflections of The Human Spirit









Are you a writer, but don't know where to begin? You hear the call to write a book. It's been percolating inside you, but may wonder how do you get it out?


If you are seeking information to help you live a healthier and prosperous life as a writer, then you are in the right place. 


There's a portal of information on articles related to the business of writing, such as How To Set Up And Optimize Your Book Cover and Seven Steps To Generate a Good Story.


Another article that may interest you as a writerDo You Know Where You Are Going?. Also, Exercise The Writer's Block Out.


Maybe you want to understand your purpose as a writer. Creating a writing business plan for your life is the key to helping you understand your purpose in life.

Have you ever sat and thought, "Where am I going in my writing business? I have no clue. I mean, I think I do? I know I want to make money. I know I want to help people, entertain people with my stories. Yes, I do want to offer value in the marketplace, but how do I do all that?" Well, you start by creating a mission statement.



I wrote these articles to help you keep your vision clear and in front of you. So when those doubting days creep up behind you and mock, "What are you writing for?" You can answer back and remind yourself, "I am writing to help people," or "I'm writing to entertain children," or "I'm writing to educate," or maybe even "I'm writing to leave a legacy for my children."































Whatever your reasons are, you want to keep that vision before you burn like a torch!

The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

~Ayn Rand
