have written the book without

Naomi.  She is truly my

fairy godmother of writing.”

Your "Writing from the Deeper Self"

Newsletter

Taking out the mystery

about what it takes to write a book

and making room for the Mystery

that's at the heart of the process.

naomirosedeepwrite@yahoo.com

 

The Writing from the Deeper Self (WFDS) newsletter comes out (almost always) once a month. To subscribe, please send me an email by clicking on the email address, above.

Below you will find the archives of the WFDS newsletter, in order of most recent first. The text of the current month (the overflow from the newsletter) appears first. Then previous issues are archived after that. To read the archived issues, please select the one that interests you and click to be connected to that page.

 

Writing from the Deeper Self is a unique approach to writing that starts from your inner experience, called in by your heart, and only later finds its way into words. Because this process accesses deep inner knowing, it is trustworthy (you never have to ask "Is it good?" because your reference point is within you), healing, frequently joyful, and often transformational (for you as well as your readers).

Here are the archives,

from the recent past to the past several years.
