Holiday Bucket List for Writers with Edie Melson

Ever thought nothing good could come out of writing during the year's busiest season? Today’s encore episode will change your mind.

Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, an extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts of NC. I’m your host, Linda Goldfarb. Each week, I bring you tips and strategies from experts in the writing and publishing industry to help you excel in your craft. I’m so glad you’re listening in. During this episode, we discuss the benefits of writing during the holidays.

My industry expert is Edie Melson. Edie is a woman of faith with ink-stained fingers observing life through the lens of her camera. She’s a card-carrying introvert who loves to encourage an audience. And she embraces the ultimate contradiction of being an organized creative. Her numerous books, including Unruffled, Thriving in Chaos, and the award-winning Soul Care series, reflect her passion for helping others develop the strength of their God-given gifts and apply them to their lives. Edie Melson, it’s so good to have you back on Your Best Writing Life!
