Who doesn’t need it, now and again? Inspiration. It typically comes from those who have some experience and knowledge in writing and have imparted said knowledge to the universe where it can be absorbed by those of us who have an interest. And, of course, it can include vastly different points of view, working styles, processes, etc, etc.

I’ve chosen many voices that, to me, serve to inspire or provide some relevance of information and ideas as I continue on this writing journey. This page will continue to be updated on an ongoing basis.

For me, I read and re-read these time and again as a constant reminder that there are many ways to accomplish a task, some better than others. It also reminds me that these voices of experience often provide an opportunity to learn and grow in this craft I so love.

With wishes for happy and productive writing… yours truly,

Shelley Ann Vrgleski

I write one page of masterpiece to ninety one pages of shit. I try to put the shit in the wastebasket.
