My Letter from Ernest

2015 was a huge learning year. With Marcus’ book and my own, with touring, with marketing and publishing, plus with life in general…

And, of course, with craft. Last year I moderated a writer’s panel and gave out the prompt, *Write a letter to yourself from an author you respect.* 

Dear Writers, listen up to what my imaginary version of Ernest has to tell me – and you –


Me, too.

letter from Ernest

That’s what I have to share today for the prompt, What I learned with the Finish the Sentence Friday.

Thanks Finding Ninee for hosting this weekly hop.

    Write one true sentence…I’m going to have to remember that. Great advice, Ernest/Mardra.
