  • Hi Teresa, It’s taking me more than 22 days to get through your workbook, but I haven’t given up! Here are some books I will have in my bibliography because they played a part in inspiring me to write my memoir, Reversible Skirt: The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, Before Women Had Wings by Connie Mae Fowler, The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston, Are You Somebody by Nuala O’Faloain, and Owls Do Cry by Janet Frame. All the best to you, Laura McHale Holland, author of Reversible Skirt and the soon to be released flash fiction collection, The Ice Cream Vendor’s Song.

    Laura

    The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston is a book that has inspired you too! You probably already know, Maxine will be speaking at California Writers Club–Mt. Diablo Branch on June 9, 2012 at their luncheon meeting.

    Wonderful that you have invested more than 22 days in my workbook to further build your platform. The reason why I created the 22 program is because . . . when we stick to something for 21 consecutive days, we develop a new habit.

    You are the new You by the 22nd day! Investing more than 22 days for your writer’s platform? Brava!

    I am so happy for you.

    I can’t wait to read your publications.

    Cheers to you!
    Sincerely,
    Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan

    I love writing but marketing is not my thing. However, I know it is necessary so I thank you for your inspiration. Here are some books I used to help me write my novel How Far to Heaven. Again, thanks for your help!

    Goddesses in Every Woman by Jean Shinoda Bolen
    The Power of Myth by Joseph Campell
    The Heroin’s Journey by Maureen Murdock
    Casting the Circle by Diane Stein

    Dear Author Kathleen Leonard,
    “Marketing” will get easier, even loads of fun, when you focus on your platform-statements and talk about the people who inspire you (the way you are honoring Jean Shinoda Bolen, Joseph Campbell, Maureen Murdock and Diane Stein in your blog post comment here).
    I’m cheering for you and How Far to Heaven!

    Hi Teresa,

    I am finding the day-by-day accruing of connections to be helpful and not overwhelming (very important for me, since I shy away from marketing).

    This exercise (#11) is challenging because I did NOT use any other books for research, and I wrote my book in part because I found that no other parenting book said what I thought needed to be said. In fact, I stopped reading parenting books a decade ago because I was so fed up with them. My book is based solely on my experience with my own children and my work with other mothers.

    After my book was written, I read Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, a book about writing. She does for writers what I hope to have done for parents: she shows them that they are not alone with their struggles, challenges and failures, she offers a few graspable general guiding principals along with practical advice, and she does it with compassion and humor.

    I am not sure what other titles I can list or where to go from here. I can see the value in the exercise, but I am not sure how to proceed with it.

    Thanks,
    Lea Page

    Dear Lea,
    I love seeing unique success that each author creates for herself/himself while doing the exercises in my 22-day program. Your declaration: “After my book was written, I read Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, a book about writing. She does for writers what I hope to have done for parents — she shows them that they are not alone with their struggles, challenges and failures, she offers a few graspable general guiding principals along with practical advice, and she does it with compassion and humor.” SHOWS me that the tags: “Anne Lamott” and “Bird by Bird” WILL help you with the rest of Exercise #11. Also, I see other powerful tags in your declaration: practical advice; she does it with compassion and humor. That’s what your fans will be saying about your book. Brava!
