15 Habits of Great Writers: Share

Great writers share. Not just their own knowledge, ideas, and expertise. They also share the work of others and credit them accordingly. And ironically, paradoxically, they ultimately benefit from their own generosity. ~ Jeff Goins,

As a nanny who spends a lot of time on the playground, I find myself constantly having to remind my 2 year old to "share".  Its one of my jobs to make sure he learns to share food, toys, playground equipment, me, etc. 

Today I am going to remind myself to do the same.  Share. 

We all have stories.  Its time for me to listen.

I want to hear from YOU!  Not about you...but a writer you admire who you think needs to be known!

Comment below and tell me. 

Who inspires you?  Share their story/journey/life in a future blog.
This is an excellent way to help promote those around us who help us strive to be better.  

My new Friday series will be called Friday's Friends and will be your opportunity to guest blog about the writer YOU want to promote!

Share away!  I look forward to meeting your friends.  :)

Happy Writing!



  1. Great idea for a series Marcie! I'll be squirreling away the names of writers whose work I want to share for it. :-)

  2. This is a great series of posts you're doing! Thanks for the great ideas, and yes, I love my critique partners. They'd be the ones I'd want to share about!!

    1. A little late but I had fun with your idea!

  4. Speaking of generosity, I'd like to see Rob Sanders profiled. On his blog, Picture This (, he provides a wealth of information and inspiration for picture book writers.

    Rob's book, Cowboy Christmas, is coming out this fall from Golden Books (Random House), and he just signed a two-book deal with HarperCollins.

  5. What a great idea for a blog series!

  6. I nominate Jenny Blakey and her great first book: Lidia and the Little Lightning Bugs! She is a great writer and a great person!
