Welcome to 4amWriter, stomping grounds for writers looking for inspiration, compassion, and maybe even a little kick in the arse.
Greetings! My name is Kate Johnston, aka 4amWriter, an author and a writing coach who inspires writers to stick with their passion for stories despite a hectic lifestyle, a saturated market, and a shaky support system.
As a story brewer, I’m usually writing something, either actively or in my head. Sometimes I talk about fantastical worlds and characters
because as though they’re real, and I love jib-jabbing about the writing process. That’s why I started my blog, just ‘cuz I needed to find a community of other story brewers.
“Everyone who wants to write should turn their passion into craft.”
My dalliance with my blog inspired a series of posts titled Writer . . . Uninterrupted that will motivate you to start writing today. These posts are now a series of e-books that push writers even harder to believe in themselves and why giving up is not an option. No matter if you’re aiming to be published or writing for the personal joy of it, you’re a writer.
“A Handbook for the Emerging Writer” will help you learn the importance of owning your writer identity, the key to unlocking the doors (such as finding time to write) standing between you and your writing goals.
If you’re a writer looking for ways to pursue your dream, or struggling with the seeming impossibility of the craft, this is the place for you. I connect with and inspire writers as a
- Writing coach and book editor who helps writers get from story idea to finished product.
- Published author in anthologies and newspapers.
- Working mom sharing her fears and joy.
- Wildlife conservationist bringing awareness about endangered species and the plight of the planet.
- Modish gladiator whose determination to pursue my writing dream has helped other writers take action.
If you’re a writer looking for ways to start writing or for help to keep writing, these are the stomping grounds for you. Writers need other writers in their lives, so I invite you to join us on our quest.
Leave a comment below and tell me why you’re ready to take action on your writing dreams. Together, we’ll make it happen.
Have a writerly day!
