It takes a lot to be a writer. Self motivation, inspiration, dedication. Writing despite resistance and the negative little demons that hold you back can be a major hurdle to overcome.
While writing my book “Hitting Water”, blogging here on “Order of the Good Write” and while working on my own written projects, I’ve been slowly building a writing coach business to help other writers get out of their writing rut.
Embedded in the model of this biz is a charitable initiative: A percentage of my fee will be donated to education organizations like ‘Pencils of Promise’ and ‘Let Girls Learn’.
It’s my hope to help less fortunate children gain the means to write their own stories.
So, you can say – I’m building a business with a purpose.
No matter where we live, or who we are – we are brought into this world to produce something beautiful. Nothing should hold you back – not oppression, lack of education, lack of confidence or self doubt.
It’s kind of like beaming a little piece of heaven down to earth. Whether you are spiritual or humanistic, there’s no denying it. We are meant to bring forth something wonderful to add to this world.
There are writers out there with amazing stories destined to be shared, but everyday noise drowns out that creative voice that longs to speak.
Today, I’m launching my website TheGoodWrite.com.
Although it currently lacks the bells and whistles of MailChimp, Opt-Ins, Pop Ups, PayPal and all the goodies that will eventually be tied into the site, I’m putting it out there now – in all it’s simplest form.
Because writing, like building a site from scratch, is something you work on a lot or a little everyday. Some days you devote less time than others, but you keep at it. Little by little – you’ll see something flourish into something amazing.
Right now, TheGoodWrite.com is just a simple site containing my work, some motivational tools and booklets I’ve written, and info on how to get in touch with me for one on one coaching.
But in time, I hope to see it flourish into a subscriber based platform, where others can share their stories and in turn, help children living in oppressed conditions gain the education to enable them to share their own.
So – my wonderful WordPress bloggers and followers (and followees) – here it is — TheGoodWrite.com.
Please check it out! Let me know what you think.
