About Igniting your writing...
You are an incredible, powerful, creative, magical, visionary, eloquent woman who has amassed decades of experience and wisdom. You’ve suffered, too, you’ve put everybody else first. Somewhere along the line, you began to believe the soul-crippling sabotage. Your confidence has suffered a hit, yet amazingly you still hope that getting back to writing will bring you joy– SOME day.
Like you, I am a woman of a certain age who loves to write, or used to. Fresh, original creative writing at the drop of a hat was not easy for me the day I retired from teaching either. Like you, I went through periods where I felt low or where my confidence sagged. Over the next couple of years, I created some genuinely magical practices to get myself out of that hole. One of the main things I found that helped me stay in my creative zone was a robust community of other women writers of all skill levels. That’s why I encourage you to join one of my writing groups. Right now.
Today. Everything wrong will be rectified and I will never tell you to be anything other than yourself! I promise. Even stuff you think beyond the scope of a little bit of writing. If you're curious, find out more about writing groups via the link below.
Women like you have taken the quiz, received their results, and they took the time to write back, "With Love"-
"Thank you for the quiz consultation and recording. I found it so interesting and inspiring. I put my Amethyst necklace on this morning, and because it’s cold here today, I’m wearing my gold pashmina around my shoulders. I’m drinking in all that violet and Queen Bee energy before I write today." –Jan in the UK

I love the moment when that thought, that idea arrives in my head. I wasn't necessarily consiously trying to think of something to write. It just happens and then I am tuned in to that idea. Everything stops around me except for my pen that keeps writing down that super idea. I begin reaching deeply within my being to grasp onto the words so they do not wither away. Silence is precious as I continue to create, using all of the cells in my body. At last, the words stop forming and my pen stops writing. I look back on the page to see what just happened, and as I read, I discover another treasure that came from my heart that I must share.
–Carley Smith, The Heartland Poet.
Your gifts and talents explored and activated!
Emerging writers like you rise above the deep waters of fear and doubt! All of my experience working with students as their teacher, 25 years managing a broadcasting staff, seven years study and practice as an "energy worker," and five years acquiring a beautiful education with a contemporary shaman, set me up perfectly to see your skills and talents; and inspire your leap to greatness!
The answer is not "out there" in the world somewhere, your gift is already right there within you! When you uncover your unique writer's gifts, you open up the readiness to learn what to do, and precisely how to do it along with a few new methods that make writing more powerful and more fun.
As you progress into my writing groups and programs we go step by step, so you won't have to walk that path alone. I share the secrets of how to work WITH your gifts instead of against them. And it will all feel like magic because I've already gathered a group of wonderful, warm, wise women writers who are already working on books and beautiful bodies of work.
"Retirement is a new chapter, not the end of my story!" –You
