Seeking Guest Bloggers for June 9 - 15 - What Does Being a "Writer" Mean to You?

Hi Book Bloggers,

I am going to do a week of inspirational writer blogs under the theme of:

"What does being a 'writer' mean to you?"

Everyone's reason for being a writer is different. Some of us are drawn to it, others are forced into it.  Yet others come to writing through an awesome book.  Why we continue to write is also part of this question! LOL.

Would love to hear from you if you're interested in posting during this Writer Inspiration Week from June 9th - June 15th.  I will post one blog each day.  You can post anything you'd like including links, pictures, videos, etc.

As usual, no pornography, no offensive language, no derogatory statements, etc.

If you're interested, please contact me at: noveldreams2007 at gmail dot com.

Hi. I would love to be a part of your writer's inspirational week. I started writing poetry at age 9. Throughout my life, now in my forties, writing has became a part of me. I love to write inspirational poetry and personal pieces to sort through what I may be going through at the time in my life, rather it be good or bad. I enjoy writing fiction of all kinds for children and teens. When I write fiction, I can escape the daily grind and live in my creativity of my imagination and beyond. To better understand my answers, please view my creative writing blog at: and my first published teen-fiction/fantasy book, "Ankh: Conquering the Seven Deadly Sins and its Press Release at: My book, "Ankh," has been in two book expos presented by SBPRA. The first book expo was in London and the second in Bangkok both in 2013. Best wishes and keep writing. Sincerely, Antoinette.

Good Morning DM,

I've just sent the Google Docs link!

Hello, everyone. My name is Antoinette Wells. I am the published. I would like to speak with you all about writing poetry and teen-fiction. I've always loved writing poetry. I started writing poetry at about at about age 9. I read my first poem at my church in front of the congregation. The poem as I remember was titled, 'Life.' I remember that I wrote about how much I loved my family and my puppy named Buttons. How I loved my mom and her cooking. The warm, secure feelings I had when I would spend the night at my grandmother's house. Waking up to the smells of ham, bacon, eggs and biscuits. How my grandmother's bed reminded me of sleeping on a cloud. As I got older, I continued writing poetry. I found myself writing about my experiences in life, good and bad. As I would read the poetry with one of my best friend's, Naomi, I found that poetry helped me to cope with the changes in life. Poetry also helped me come to terms and find solutions to whatever I may have been dealing with at the time. I also enjoy writing teen-fiction. My children were big fans of Goose Bumps when it came out by Mr. R.L. Stine. Being a parent, I watched a lot of Goose Bumps with them as well as purchasing the books. My first published book is teen-fiction titled, 'Ankh: Conquering the Seven Deadly Sins.' I created two teen-sisters who had to rise to the occasion of learning their own weaknesses and strengths on a personal level to reunite. That was important to me. Even though Ankh is fiction, I wanted to show a positive lesson without it sounding like a lesson to face your fears and you can overcome obstacles by believing in yourself. My writing is an important part of my life that helps me to learn life lessons at a more personal level. Sincerely, Antoinette.
