And now, I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Wendy Burt, who just had her second baby, Ben Stevenson Thomas, last week. 🙂 She’s quoted often Writer Mama and I want to thank her for all her help and for her great example over the years. Wendy has been a writing-for-publication mentor of mine since I took her class in 1999 (which was where I met my husband, Jason, coincidentally).
Wendy Burt-Thomas is a full-time freelance writer, editor and author. Her credentials include more than 1,000 published pieces in such varied publications as Family Circle, MSNBC.com and The Writer. Her books, Oh, Solo Mia! (2001, McGraw-Hill) and Work It, Girl! (2003, McGraw-Hill) are available through www.WendyBurt-Thomas.com.
Oh, Solo Mia! The Hip Chick’s Guide to Fun for One offers more than 120 fun and innovative ideas for women who want to enjoy life without a man – or friend! – in tow.
Work It, Girl! 101 Tips for the Hip Working Chick offers a wide variety of fun and fabulous ways to overcome the daily grind with style.
Taken from the class of the same name, Breaking Into Freelance Writing is a 3-CD set of Wendy Burt’s live workshop. The audio is paired with a 30+ page packet, including sample queries, cover letters, agent letters and more.
P.S. One of my editors for Writer Mama, Michelle Ehrhard, also had a baby last week, her first and a girl, Bridget Joelle, born on September 18th. The message I got from Lauren Mosko at WDB letting me know about the birth said: “Another Writer Mama!” in the subject line. 🙂
(Lest we forget, editors are almost always writers…just like us.)
Here is the question that you must answer in between 50-300 words in order to be entered into today’s giveaway:
Who do you want to thank for the writing career/journey success that you’ve experienced thus far? This can be family, friends, pets, mentors–anyone who’s made a difference. Go ahead and thank them here. An attitude of gratitude magnetizes success, in my experience. (My list is about a mile long at this point, so mind the word-count.)
