Share your writing goals for 2019.

Mis Quince Años

I’ve been asking writers and authors to share their 2019 writing goals all last week.

I reached out to romance authors and ask them to tell readers some of their goals for this year, and I did the same for Muslim authors on the NbA Muslims blog on Patheos.

It was great reading what authors and writers had planned as well as including some of my goals. I also took a moment to take part in an Instagram author’s challenge post.

Christmas Surprise: Interview with Lyndell Williams

Marilyn Vix

Christmas is coming, and there are holiday parties to attend or shopping to do. But if you want to get away from it all and curl up with a good book, I’ve got an author you’ll want to meet. I had a chance to interview Lyndell Williams. She is a cultural critic with a background in literary criticism specializing in romance.

Have you always enjoyed writing?

Absolutely not. When I was younger, I was plagued with terrible handwriting and teachers who constantly criticized me for it. I hated writing because of it and limited myself and either spoke my ideas or remained silent. It wasn’t until I attended a trade school for word processing and then studied literature in college.

What motivates you to write?

I write for a variety of reasons, but my primary ones are that I want to tell the world about the experiences of people often overlooked and convey stories filled with social commentary. I want to express humanity in an often an inhumane world.

What writing are you most proud of? 

Any of my work that positively affects people gives me pride. I’ve had people tell me they’ve felt empowered or learned something I wrote in a…
