31 Days: A Writer is a Reader Who Reads All the Books



UPDATE: When I set out to write this series of posts, I NEVER imagined it would be as popular as it has become. But in the almost year since I published this series, it’s gotten consistent traffic, and remains my highest trafficked post via Pinterest to date. So…


I have decided to publish this series as an ebook. 30 Days to Becoming a Writer will release on Amazon on August 25, 2014.

No, that’s not a typo – The book is a 30 Day Guide, not 31 Day Guide. I condensed the material into readable chapters, and organized it in a way that gives readers a comprehensive guide to writing and publishing in an easily digestible format. 


I will be removing the posts from this space in an effort to preserve the integrity of the book, but as soon as the book goes live, I will include the link where you can purchase these posts for your online library.


My hope and desire it that people will be inspired to continue to create, to write, and ultimately, to author the words that float in their heads and hearts. I’m so honored to have you all on this journey with me. I hope that you will benefit in your career as a writer from the tips offered in 30 Days to Becoming an Author.

Thanks for taking this journey with me!




  1. I love Anne Lamott. Every time I read her work I think, “She’d be a hoot to hang out with.” We should invite her to next year’s creative retreat.

  2. Bonhoeffer is on my Christmas list – what did you think? And thanks to your list now there are quite a few other books too!
    Two books that make me think about words and inspire me to write are Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard and Mary Oliver Selected Poems Vol 2 – both are beautiful examples of words well used. I loved Bird by Bird too.
