What this website is about
This website is a showcase of the writing of author Heather Sylvawood.
I (Heather Sylvawood) write several blogs, so please check them out and follow the ones of greatest interest.
Real Estate Rollercoaster - blog about our adventures in investment property and running a holiday/vacation home.
Sylvawood Under the Stars - a blog about my adventures
as an "Eco-Warrior" and what I learn along the way about my effect on
the world and global warming.
Sylvawood Words - blog about anything and everything, but it really the place where the genisis of ideas for new fiction and non-fiction is likely to arise. I am also trying out Tumblr as a platform for blogging. Let you know what I feel about it in other pages.
These Eyes - the place where I get over my writer cringe and
put really short pieces of writing into the public arena.
One of the most inspiring blogs I have come across is written by Ollin Morales. His blog "Courage 2 Create" is like "The Secret" for writers. He uses his blog to share his own challenges of writing but stops along the way to share and support others. Highly recommended!
