At, the community for women writers I founded with Deborah Siegel in June 2009, writers share their knowledge and seek one another’s support as they go about the difficult but joyous task of writing. When I started writing Wishful Thinking (the title and theme of which I kept to myself), it came naturally to me to share my experience with SheWriters on my blog as I went along. These posts cover the years it took me to write it, from the moment I conceived the idea all the way up to my decision to publish with SheWrites Press.
