Welcome!

I have always loved writing, and I know that skill of verbal, written expression is not easy for everyone. The goal here at Hesed Communications & Writing Services  is to make that process less stressful.

The blog here is designed to be a source of comfort, resources and focus. A place for a writer to be a writer–flaws, insecurities, hangups and all. And that’s okay too!

The blog has the following categories for easy reference:

Announcements/Services:

All things that are happening on the site or in the immediate future.

Editor’s Reflections:

I freelance edit from time to time and these are musings or things I have encountered while editing other work.

From The Writing Desk:

I’m a writer, and these are reflections and musings from the vantage point of an indie writer and published author.

Motivation:

Every writer from time to time needs to be reminded to keep going.

One Minute Motivation: 

These are quick thoughts about/on writing and its process at 300 words or less.

Podcast:  The Writers’ Block

Here you have access to all the latest and greatest information as it relates to writing:  including challenges, resources and tools. And always, encouragement!

Workshop Overview:

As a writer/blogger/author, I am all about sharing the wealth. Watch this space for links to workshops or talks.

Writer Corner:

Here are interviews with writers that I know and I believe you should know too.

There is also a portion of the site that caters to those just getting started with writing and need my editing services! Feel free to contact with me with any questions you may have and the writing needs you would like met.

Happy Writing!

December 2022: In The Deep

Write out the hope.

Write down the hope.

As this year ends, I want to give you the reassurance that hope is a cornerstone of your writing, oil in your creative engine. I want to remind you of the power you have! Every writer has it, they don’t always exercise it.

I’m included in that.

Yet, I am learning that hope is rooted in trust. It is rooted in believing that what you know will occur! Hope is in faith’s waiting room.

As you end your year of 2022, I want you to write in hope. This way, you can continue to write in power.

Encouragement Pages-12/05/2022

Note: Look for the miniseries Critics, Critiques, & Commentary in January 2023.

Critics are a necessary part of The Arts.

There are people whom have made their careers and life’s work off of telling artists what they cannot do. Or should not be doing! As you begin this journey of writing and publishing, remember critics will come.

IT IS WHAT THEY DO.

Critics criticize.

Writers write.

Guess what you should do?

With Love & Ink,

November 2022: Remember The Beginning

If you write like someone is looking over your shoulder, you will never write.

The writers’ eye is unique in that it is able to record, to see, challenge…and believe.

Through moods of fiction, non-fiction, essay, or allegory–we are after that sight. We are after that sight–wanting what we see to be real, being daring enough to make it so.

What shall you give to the story you create? The idea you want? The thing you are scared of?

Your vision. Your sight. Your imagination. Your story.

You can do it.

November 2022: Secret Selves

Every superhero has a secret identity–a self known only to them, and a persona to the world.

In putting more into the world, in writing what you want to see–you may have to employ (or exercise) a pen name. There is no same in that. There may be ideas you want to explore which for the want of decency (or in my case a Baptist upbringing), that you have to explore with the cloak of a pen name.

Writers must become comfortable with using all resources at the ready, accessing a bravery few people have, or ever will. The goal still is to write what you want, as you want, and being aware that you have permission to create what you want.

Like you want.

When you want.

As you want it.

Be brave and keep going.
