Award-winning Author Hosts Online Workshop for Aspiring Mom Writers

I recently had the incredible opportunity to meet celebrated author Gwendolen Gross, whose recent release, The Other Mother has struck a chord with working and stay at home moms across the country.  Gwendolen appeared on a panel produced by Role Mommy called Authors we Love and she shared some of her secrets about how she finds the time to write each day, teach and even sing in a professional chorus, all while juggling the needs of her family.  What I loved about Gwendolen is her spirit - she has this amazing aura about her that makes you feel like anything is possible as long as you put pen to paper and start writing!

And that's what brings me to what I found this morning.  I checked out Gwendolen's blog and found that she also teaches an online writing workshop for moms!  If you are an aspiring writer, you should definitely check it out.   She gives great exercises that'll get your mind racing with ideas and hopefully your fingers tapping away on your keyboard with the makings of the next great American novel, short story, essay or poem.   

So if your dream is to unlock your hidden talent for writing, or if you just want to explore your creative side, visit Gwendolen's site today.  Click Here to take a look.
