Love & the Goddess Blog Tour: Guest Post

Hey everyone, it's a great day for a blog tour post.  Today we have a great author post  from author Mary Elizabeth Coen.  She is talking about 5 Writing Tips today here on The Twigasm.  Her book Love & The Goddess can be bought on Amazon.  Make sure you get your copy today. It's only 99 cents on Amazon for Kindle Version!

5 Writing Tips

(1) Posture is important -choose a comfortable chair and make sure if you iuse a laptop, have it at  eye level – I build mine up on  top of several books and use a separate keyboard.

(2)Get rid of the inner critic and just write – the writing improves
with later drafts.

(3) I plan my characters and use a mood board with images from magazines to represent the main characters. I then write a biography on each detailing eye & hair color, height, occupation etc. I add finer details like hobbies and habits and keep all of this in a sectioned folder.

(4) It is equally important to keep notes on what happens in each successive chapter. I plan chapters in advance but certain things change as I write, If I don’t keep notes I find I’ll constantly keep glancing back and wasting time.

( 5) Discipline is important – set aside a block of time each day solely for writing and try to stick to that. Lastly have lots of fun with the process. I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t such fun.

One woman, One myth, Three Goddesses           
A woman's voyage of self discovery begins on the internet leading all the way to Brazil and onto the Andean highlands of Peru.

Devastated from her relationship break- up, Kate Canavan is at a loss until she re-discovers a hidden painting of the triple Goddess from Greek mythology. Her interest in mythology and spirituality is re-ignited. A voyage of self discovery begins with internet dating using the names of each of the Goddesses in the triple myth.

When a health scare intervenes Kate and her friends go together to visit a famous healer in Brazil and a spiritual guru in Peru, where all three friends begin spiritual journeys of forgiveness, gratitude and learning to live in the now.  Read it to find out if Kate finds love along the way.

Living in Ireland, Mary Elizabeth Coen is a former Home Economics teacher and lifestyle journalist.

Though she always dreamed of being a writer, Mary Elizabeth took a rather circuitous route getting there. You could say she has had several incarnations in this lifetime from Home Economics teacher to Fashion Editor of a magazine, along with being mother to three wonderful children, Mark, Janet and Emily. Due to demand from clients she opened her own pr consultancy firm specializing in fashion; – the dream job for a fashionista, availing of great discounts on wonderful shoes and vintage clothing.

Unfortunately the five inch stilettos had to go when Mary’s health deteriorated and she received a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Work too, had to take a back seat as Mary sought to maintain optimum health and became interested in holistic medicine and personal development. In the process, she developed a passion for mythology, philosophy and the study of ancient spiritual traditions. As a seeker, she travelled to Mayan sites in Mexico, visited a famous healer’s ashram in Brazil and undertook a shamanic journey through Peru.  Mary’s book Love & the Goddess is based on her travels.

Mary is now in robust good health, working as a full-time author and stress management lecturer, while also running a website called Goddess MECA. The acronym is for Mary Elizabeth Coen Assists the Goddess in everywoman through sharing her love of cookery fashion and mythology. Mary brings her experience from teaching, using tools that are practical and easily integrated into every day busy lives. Her clients range from private individuals and businesses, to larger corporate bodies. - -
