Writers Process Blog Hop: Hop Right In!

Thanks to award-winning author and radio host Jillian Maas Backman for twisting my arm to be a part of this blog hop! She also enlisted  Amy Susan Crohn, to become involved and share the writing skills and process for  DYING TO LIVE: Running backwards from cancer, Lupus, and chronic illness, yet another award-winning author and book. She didn’t have to bend too far, but I questioned why I would be included. I’m not a published author like others who have been participating, I have no aspirations, but I’ve learned that when it comes to writing anything there is a distinct process for each individual. If you haven’t made acquaintance with Jillian you’re missing a treasure. As an Intuitive Consultant Jillian impacts my life, as well as others, by the expert tutoring from her book BEYOND THE PEWS: Breaking with Tradition and Letting Go of Religious Lockdown, or by private consultations. She is a true blessing to the world. If you, or someone you know, has been in the throes of chronic or terminal illness, DYING TO LIVE should be on your …
