Hi Everyone, and WELCOME to The Writing Fairy website. I'm Dorothea Helms, freelance writer, poet, book author, fiction dabbler, writing instructor, keynote speaker, humorist, wife, mother and slave to my English Bulldog, Margaret. My website is undergoing a facelift, boob lift, liposuction, weight loss program ... wait a minute - those are things I need personally. Sheesh. But my website IS in transition after being neglected for a LONG time. My goal is to inspire writers; my method humour (or humor in the U.S.). Enjoy!
One of the most common things writers approach me with is this comment: “I’d like to pick your brain.”
I always say, “You’re welcome to what’s left of it, but some days the pickins are pretty slim!”
In fact, I’ve learned a LOT over the years that I’ve been a freelance writer and editor – and every now and then I remember some of it.
I’ve decided to share some of my moments of lucidity with you in a series of short audio clips. I’ll add new ones regularly, so be sure to check back from time to time.
And if you like what I have to say, hire me to come out to your group or business and I’ll do a fabulous writing workshop for you.
