Shout-Out: Writer Unboxed

In my last post, I mentioned how the online writing community and blog, Writer Unboxed, has been a great source of encouragement to me in my fiction writing journey.

Not only does it have thoughtful, informative posts, but contributors include published authors, marketers, and even agents who offer their take on how this writing business works.

If you haven't visited Writer Unboxed yet, I highly encourage it. They also have a thriving Facebook community that is full of support. It's a place to ask questions and get terrific feedback.

Today is my last day off from work. Hard to believe more than a month has gone by since I had my surgery and worked at the day job. I could take another month off and be quite happy! While I am still experiencing pain and nowhere near back to normal, the bank account insists I return to work. So high ho, high ho, it's off to work I go on Monday.

Happy Friday!


  1. Thanks for the info about Writer Unboxed! I will definitely check it out. I've had terrible writer's block lately, and instead of browsing around Etsy I need to do something visit Writer Unboxed!

    I can't believe it's time for you to go back to work either-and I wish you were feeling completely better and ready to take on your old routine again. I just hope that it won't be too long before you are all better-but take it easy in the meantime, ok? Hugs:)

  2. All the best for the transition back to work. I hope you begin to feel completely well soon.

  3. Good luck with the transition back to work!

  4. Nice article, thanks for the information.
