How long have you dreamed of writing a book?
A year? A decade? Since you were a kid?
It's time to stop dreaming and start writing.
And I can help you get started.
During Momentum Week (December 27-31) you'll write about your writing dreams...and fears. We'll talk about all (good and not-so-good) the what ifs. You'll write about your book idea. And you'll create a plan to move from blank page to first draft.
Join Momentum in 2021 to get ready to write in 2022.
Hey! I'm Dawn. I love writing grooves that are hours long but seem like minutes. Grammar doesn't make me break out in hives. A good detour to find just-the-right synonym.
I also love reading, running, visiting my grown sons, and mashed potatoes. Not necessarily in that order.
Words are my thing. My own and others. For the past four years, I've helped clients jump start their writing practices. I've guided clients through revisions (and then celebrated with them when they found publishing homes for their books). I've taught students, ages 5 to 99 how to boldly face the blank page to write their hearts out.
I have 10 years of copywriting experience, two years teaching middle-school English (hello, grammar lessons), and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing.
I'm also the author of two poetry chapbooks, A Person Worth Knowing (FootHills Publishing, 2021), I Know When to Keep Quiet (Finishing Line Press, 2010) and a full-length poetry collection, Take Something When You Go (Winter Goose Publishing, 2016).
