A place for shared learning, support, and the promotion of writersat
all stages of their journeys.


If you like to write and want to improve as a writer...

You are not alone.

I usually go by Liz. If you want to know more about me or my relationship with writing, you can read that HERE.

For you to get the most out of this site, you'll need to know what it has to offer. Keep reading to learn more about my blog, resource links, and contests.

1st Stop: the Writing Sandbox

Join me here as I learn what it takes to write meaningful stories. While what I learn can be applied to other genres, my focus is on fantasy fiction.

You can also find...

  • writing prompts

  • monthly challenges

  • contest updates

  • author interviews

  • updates to the Bookshelf and contests

2nd Stop: the Bookshelf

Over here is a resource section that I update monthly. Not just a list of craft books, the Bookshelf contains a few additional features.


  • Includes a section for technology intended to boost productivity.

  • Each book and tech resource, has a photo, standard blurb, and non-affiliated external Buy or Try link.

  • Includes featured new releases in speculative fiction -- and links to interviews with those authors.

  • Some resources will include links to blog posts where you can see ideas in practice.


3rd Stop: the Contests

For us to become better writers, we need to do more than read blog posts and craft books. We must write. We must finish. We must put words into a public space. We must market our work.


I want to create a safe space for you to practice these skills. To that end... Each year I plan to host three free-to-enter flash fiction contests with small prizes.


 These contests are still in the planning phase but you can check out my progress in the below link

4th Stop: Updates and More

That’s three resources you can use to prepare and promote yourself as a writer. The Writing Sandbox will have notices about new Bookshelf resources and contest updates. To keep up with the latest, you can bookmark or subscribe to the blog.
