Writing Wednesday 1-6-2021

Recently I went on a writer’s retreat to Porches in Norwood, Virginia. In their welcome binder, I found this beautiful passage by Martha Graham that set the mood for my long weekend of writing. Every one of us has value. What you create must exist. Believe in yourself. If you want to be a writer, write. If you want to be an artist, create. Don’t deny the world your unique gift. It’s not up to you to decide whether your work is any good. You’re worthy. Happy Wednesday!

Success! You're on the list.

About Missy S

Missy Sheldrake is an epic daydreamer and a muse of positivity who weaves worlds full of character-driven, complex fantasy adventures. In 2014 she dusted off an unfinished Tassy Walden Award-winning manuscript from her college days, started writing her first novel, Call of Kythshire, and never looked back. In four short years, she completed the five-book Keepers of the Wellsprings series, an epic high-fantasy young adult adventure that was awarded the Golden Squirrel Independent Book Award in 2017 for Best Fantasy. When she isn't writing, Missy can be found creating fantastical artworks in paint and clay, wandering hidden forest paths, and concocting plots for imaginary people who are beyond real to her. She loves to hear from her readers, so feel free to drop her a line!
