Amy on Writerscape

When I started writing my first novel over a decade ago, I believed that unless I found a quiet and inspired few hours every day, I would never get any writing done. And yet, the realities of my life meant that those quiet inspired hours simply weren't possible for me.

So, I started writing in smaller chunks of time wherever and whenever I could find them. Eventually I did finish that novel, and another, and then another. The key for me was discarding any rigid notions I had about what the writing life was supposed to look like, and instead finding a way to build a writing life that worked for me. Because the rest of my life wasn't going on pause so I could write, I needed to find a sustainable way to fit it in. I founded Writerscape to support other writers in doing the same.

Writerscape is a community and space for aspiring and emerging writers. Our core belief is that anyone can build a sustainable writing practice, whether you have hours every day or only twenty minutes at a time, here and there; whether you're working on a novel or a memoir or a collection of poetry, or anything in between.
