This book gave me the courage to say yes to becoming the author I knew I am. Dubbing Ariel my lit hero gave me a door into the world of not just writing. But, understanding the full spectrum of its fullness. Difficulties. And, so much more.
Since purchasing my copy on April 9th, 2007 taken workshops in the Literary Kitchen (Lit Kitchen) and participate in the Wayward Writers Lounge. Live workshop in in Iowa City following listening to Ariel read excepts and answer questions from We Were Witches at Kirkwood College in Cedar Rapids.
Years prior, traveled to hear Ariel read excerpts from End of Eve in Philly while living near by. In between workshops and Iowa.
Staying connected helped me remain loyal to my dream. Ariel is a super inspirational human. Her memoirs and encouragement are inspirational. For me, began with this books wisdom. Heart felt opening hook about why she wrote the book. Since then, I’ve aspired to inspire others similarly.
Books are written and on my way to publishing several (2020. This all began with the confidence found upon reading this honest book.
My take away, ‘It won’t be easy. It’ll be worth it.’ ~Patience Phillips @askmisspatience
I must say she's everything I thought she'd be and more in person. I admire her. You will, too. Highly recommend finding her in line and connecting to extend the journey yourself 😁
Since reading this book I have been published in one anthology, am scheduled to be in a second one, and am working on other submissions for additional anthologies. I am also working on putting my own anthology together. I knew little about how anthologies worked before reading this book.
I've purchased dozens of "how to be a writer" type books but this one was the easiest to read and most useful.
Please, take it from me, as I've wasted 22 years writing on the same novel: Buy This Book (and Read It)!!
Note: I don't plan to waste any more years!
