“I have been consulting with Lynne for the past three months. She is fantastic! I`ve been so pleased to work with her in the areas of self-care,  self-management, communication, blockages to success, planning and motivation and more.
She`s consistently held a positive vision for me, been generous with helpful tips for improving my life and flexible in understanding my unique needs. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Lynne for your own personal and/or professional project.”        C.S

How To Sustain Your Writing Career
David Silverman, LMFT
When you first have some success as a writer, producers, agents, other writer’s immediately want to put you in a box.  It’s good and it’s bad. You can create a satisfying career in your genre, provided you keep getting writing assignments. And that works for some writers.
More likely, however, you’ll want to branch out. Most writers find they’re better off being good at many different types of writing. Some writers can write comedy and drama. My partner and I wrote comedy......
How we broke out of our niche.
You’ll need to write new spec scripts.  You need something to show that you can write in different styles. Even better...More

Rachel Carson on Writing and the Loneliness of Creative Work                                                      Maria Popova                                                              In previously contemplating what constitutes great nonfiction, I placed writers in a hierarchy of explainers, elucidators, and enchanters, the latter class being exceedingly rare and exceedingly rewarding to read.

Explainer, Elucidator, Enchanter: A Gradation of Great Writing                                                        Maria Popova                                                              In a recent conversation with a friend, I found myself struggling to convey the hierarchy of good writing, particularly of good science writing — a hierarchy experienced so concretely in the act of reading but inexpressible as soon as one tries to dismantle the magic of enthralling prose. The difference between good writing and great writing is always palpable and rarely articulable, but the stakes are even higher in science writing, where the standards of truth and beauty are such that the precise and the poetic must converge in order to yield both comprehension and enchantment.

Change the Narrative, Change Your Destiny: How James Baldwin Read His Way Out of Harlem and into Literary Greatness                      Maria Popova                                                       One of the most poignant portions of James Baldwin and Margaret Mead's conversation looks at why real change becomes possible only when we change the cultural narrative. Baldwin recounts how, as a child, he read his way out of his own culturally-imposed narrative of possibility, which allowed him to go beyond what Kafka believed books could do for us — serve as “the axe for the frozen sea inside us” — and go further, turning books into an axe for the frozen sea between us. More...
