I'm All "Write"--How About You?

Some of us see images that others can't see. Most of us hear voices in our heads that others can't hear. All of us have what some might call an unhealthy obsession with our computers, pens and paper, and the written word. We spend countless hours making things up, scribbling down random thoughts and ideas, or combing through the research section at our local libraries. We're no strangers to critics, rejection letters, or red circles on our paperwork. We come from all races, backgrounds, and geographic locations. We share a common bond that separates us from the rest of the world. Despite what anyone may think, we really aren't crazy. We're writers, and I'm here to tell you, we're all "write."

Welcome to The Ink Spot. I undertook this blog at the prompting of two good friends of mine--Freelance Writer and Author Marie Cauley, and Freelance Writer Kristine Meldrum Denholm. Both are accomplished writers and fellow bloggers who felt that it was time for me to break out of my shell a little and share my personal knowledge and experience with the rest of the literary community. Now that I'm here, I hope to encourage, inspire, and support those who have published, are in the process of publishing, or still working toward making that dream a reality. As for those who simply wish to follow the blog as nothing more than good reading material, I hope you'll find a place here as well.

Once again, welcome. Take a look around, stay as long as you'd like, and come back often. I look forward to our times together.

Until next time...happy reading and writing!


  1. Thanks for the mention, Debbie. Here's to a successful blog! YOU CAN DO THIS, FRIEND!

  2. Love the tips and yes, I am also one of those people who have a head full of ideas and stories but just never know where to start :)

  3. Kris, thanks for the vote of confidence. It means more to me than you know! And Chris, thanks for your comment as well! Great to hear from you. Keep watching the blog, and maybe I can help you get those ideas from your head to the computer screen! :-)
