It would help me to know what sort of writing info interest you. Can you answer these three questions?
In my roles as a writing coach, editor, and tutor, I get a LOT of questions about grammar. Many of the questioners can recite a rule from childhood – the problem is, the rule didn’t make sense then and it doesn’t make sense now.
I also get a LOT of questions about how to plan a piece of writing, research it, organize it, and start to write it. For me, those mysteries are no longer mysteries. I actually have actionable advice that leads to results.
The WriteStrong! program is on the SavvyFreelanceWriter Facebook page. It is a place to find answers to those questions. You’ll also find videos, classes, and materials to use to answer your questions and get you writing over the coming months.
Links to my Fiverr gigs – for coaching and writing a book proposal – will be there, too. (When I figure out how to get that to work!)

I’m beginning a series of posts that will cover writing nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and long form narrative; finding a topic; uncovering the story in your notes; the craft of nonfiction; and topics related to writing nonfiction.

It will also be based upon the feedback and questions I’ve received from my students in the workshops I teach at The Writer’s Center, as well as in the writing classes and webinars I offer online.
I’ll make the post titles descriptive, as well as the tags, so you’ll be able to tell and find the posts that interest you. If you have any questions, or comments, or just want to weigh in, please use this form. Thanks! ~Gina
