What is “The Daily Creative Writer?” It’s a blog and a twitter feed focusing on providing inspiration and structure to all writers, great and small.

The focus of The Daily Creative Writer is to provide the tools and the motivation necessary for the creative and professional writer. So many of us want to write – to make a living, to explore our creative side, or because we simply must put words on a page – but don’t know where or how to start. After trying (and trying, and trying again) to create a career and a life that revolves around the writing craft, I’ve discovered that while there are many avenues to success, in order to be a writer one must write….every day preferably.
I’m a magazine editor living in Santa Barbara, CA. I am a professional writer/editor with over 15 years experience in technical writing, marketing and promotional content. I’m also the head of SeaWrite Media (www.seawritemedia.com) a web content provider. As I’ve explored and expanded my career path, I’ve picked up some valuable tools and smart strategies that I’d like to share. I’ve been able to craft a creative career as a writing professional, and you can too!

In this blog, you’ll find tips and notes and recommendations. I’ll be discussing Julia Cameron‘s “The Artist’s Way” and Anne Lamott‘s “Bird by Bird” and many other books, articles and authors. I’ll be sending out daily writing topics and writing excises via twitter (@DailyCreativeWr), and I’ll be writing write along side you all.

So let’s get started – it’s really not that hard.

As Hemingway famously said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed…”

So let’s tap that vein and let it flow.
