What others are saying about my daily writing prompts:
“I’m going through a particularly difficult time so I haven’t been writing much lately. But when I read today’s prompt, I thought: “Ha! I can do that!” The first 5 minutes of 20 were spent crying but by the end it was like coming out of a deep, creative savasana and inspiration was flowing.”
“I thought of you with such gratitude this morning. How can this simple exercise be so fulfilling and so satisfying? Words are bubbling up out of me like colourful balloons at a county fair. I've discovered an eager little writing voice who thrills to the challenge — I set my alarm, put pen to paper and sprint to the task, not giving myself more than a few seconds to contemplate the topic du jour. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
“I have been writing the prompts daily . . . and I have to tell you, I am enjoying it immensely. There is a nice variety of assignments. And writing each one is like a dive into the deep end of a pool: Once I plunge in, I enjoy the water and I wonder why I don’t spend more time there! The feeling of accomplishment is addictive!”
I help writers fix their relationship with writing and inspire them to create again. My debut collection, This Cake Is for the Party, was a finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize, was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book, and was longlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. My novel, Radiant Shimmering Light, was published in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the U.K., the U.S., and Poland. It has been optioned for television and will be a premium one-hour series.
