Everyone has a book in them… or so it has been said.  The truth is, not everyone is able to get that book OUT.

Uphill Writing is for people who want to make their book a reality.  Make no mistake: there is no MAGIC word or bullet that makes it all happen.  In the end, it is you, and you only.

OK, then why this Blog?  Because while we have to write alone, we do not have to struggle without help.  Here you will find Traps, Speedbumps and Potholes… and what to do about them, as well as Useful Ideas, Tips of the Trade, and Important Reference Links.

Do we know all the answers?  No.  We don’t even know all of the questions.  But on this journey we intend to find out.

    You’ve done a terrific job setting up this inspirational site . . . and you’ve mastered the art of the elipse!


  2. Hi Richard
    This looks like an interesting page.
    I look forward to browsing here and being inspired.

  3. I am thoroughly enjoying your site. I decided in the wee hours of the morning that a blog was probably my only way to acquire a tangible reason to finish a writing project. In a way, I am killing two birds with one stone… not just one project idea, but two.

    Thank you for your blog on writing on schedule, the story that I am going to piece together was originally started about a decade ago… back when I had structure in my life. I wrote every day faithfully, unfortunately, I did not have the knowledge or skill to write well, but I did get a lot of pages.

    Perhaps ten years, a new medium, and a little help from some fellow writers will mean the difference this time.

    • Hi, Fionna

      Depending upon your chosen blogging schedule, you may find that blogs stretch between a leisurely distraction to a full-time occupation. Uphill Writing is just a tad over 30 days old, but it is growing fast.
      Several good friends who are also writers visit here, some make comments like you (thank you for your kind words), others actually submit pieces as Guest Bloggers.

      You mention that you wrote every day for a project. I submit to you that every day of writing you complete is training–powerful training in the craft. If I may be so bold, one of the quickest ways to gain skill and confidence in writing is to get involved in a writing community and spend time reading and critiquing others’ work. You will find it to be very useful. Take a look at the online community WEbook.com or search for others. You’ll be glad you did.

  5. Hello…
    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and I was wondering if you accept guest posts?

    • Hi, Renee. Thanks for stopping by.

      I do consider guest bloggers, and in fact am looking to have one a day on Uphill Writing starting in the next two weeks or so.
      What to you write about? Do you have a link I can check out?

      Thank you!

  6. Wow! What a lot of work you have put into this blog. I am impressed. So much information.
    I am looking forward to being in the Yahoo group as well.
    Bill’s workshops are really paying off. I’m glad I attended. Or I should say, am attending.

  7. Do you have a Facebook group for Uphill Writing, Richard?
