Since this is "Write Better" month, I wanted to show you one of my favorite websites for all things "writing better." If you are a grammar nut (like me) you will especially like this website!

It's called  and it has some great tip for everything from polishing your writing, to grammar help, to journal writing. To give you a taste, I have pulled out one of her posts that I go to every so often and re-read because it's not only informative, but inspiring . It's called 22 Best Writing Tips:

Looking forward to our meeting May 17, 7pm in Studio B (same room as last time!).

Happy Writing,

Weekly Writing Prompts 4.26.12

I'm so excited to be starting a Weekly Writing Prompt (WWPs) here on Voices.
Every week we are going to post two or three writing prompts for you ladies to be inspired by. I'm going to try and keep them divers and different every week, so that everyone from bloggers to poets can be apart of this fun! 

Details: Every week on Thursday we will be posting the WWPs, by Monday you can link up your blog by posting a comment with a link to your post (if your a blogger). It is that simple. 

So if your ready....

Weekly Writing Prompts for 4.25.12

1. What is a random fact about your self, and a story behind it.

2. What is your "mommy/women super power"?

3. Write a letter to an object or time period of your life.

I can't wait to read what you ladies write this week, and find some writing prompt inspiration from your post!

Have fun creating!


Remember if your not a blogger, please try a prompt too it is great exercise for your writing! Maybe you'll start a blog just to be able to link up your writing! ;) 

Welcome To Voices

Welcome to the Voices: Write to be Heard blog! This is the brain child of one of our members, Tiffany Pate. Tiffany is a blogger (Mrs Pate Writes) and is well versed in creating blogs, so she kindly set this one up for us. This blog will feature information about writing, interviews, and writing prompts to get your creative juices going. We may even have a contest or two for our members in the near future.

We are so thrilled with our turnout of enthusiastic writers last week! Based on what I saw on your questionnaires, you are a very diverse group of women with a wide range of experience and interests in the world or writing. What an exciting group of ladies to be working with.

As we talked about last week, Voices exists to resource, support, and encouraging its members, and the questionnaire we handed out was developed so that we could find out what YOU are most interested in learning about first.

You have spoken! The first two topic "winners" are:

May 17: How to improve your writing and the "craft" of writing
June 21: Blogging and all the facets of it 

At the May meeting, you will also be meeting your critique group members. We will have more specific information closer to each meeting about what to expect. Thank you again for you enthusiasm. Don't forget to bring your writing friends next time. The more the merrier!

Happy Writing,
