“Inspiration is Everywhere”
Christy the Writer
To say that Amy Thielen’s life has changed a lot on the past few years is a mild understatement. The star of Food Network’s new show, “Heartland Table,” held a bloggers’ roundtable discussion recently, in which a handful of us had a chance to...
I had dreamed, for so many years, of visiting England. I’d collected pictures of castles, Elizabethan architecture, and rolling green hills dotted with sheep, books by C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and Somerset Maugham. I studied the scenery,...
Spring always feels like a new year to me. I know it’s partly because my birthday is in April, so it’s my personal new year, but with everything in blossom and bloom, it’s easy to find a new outlook, a new purpose, a new beginning. So much has...
My name is Christy Potter. I’m a writer. I’ve always been a writer. I’ll always be a writer. Someday they’ll find me slumped over my keyboard, and my last words will be “Someone… hand me… that… thesaurus…” I’ve done everything from newspaper journalism to magazine writing, from plays and short stories to essays and novels. I’ve won awards and I’ve been knocked through the ropes. The only label I’ll ever put on myself is “writer,” because that’s who I am.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you’ll find something to cheer, soothe, ignite or inspire you – maybe all of the above. You can find my books on Amazon and my podcast, “Going Gray,” both here and on iTunes. I’m also on Facebook, Goodreads, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter. I promise you that no matter where you find me, you won’t be bombarded with nothing but “Buy my book!” messages. I don’t like that any better than you do. Instead, you’ll get to know me as a writer, and what drives my work. And because all these sites are blessedly interactive, you can let me find out more about you as well.
If you like what you read, please share it with a friend. I also welcome your comments, feedback, and reviews. Writing is only half of what I do. Having people who read what I write is the other half.
I have written two books that are available for purchase directly from me. Please click the book cover images below to order. If you have questions or special requests, please drop me a note at Christy@ChristytheWriter.com.
Christy is available as a speaker for events of any size, from local book groups and service clubs to student groups and classes. Her talks are motivating and inspiring, and have entertained, informed and motivated audiences of all sizes. Her topics include the art of writing, how to conduct a great interview, finding inspiration, and igniting the creative spark.
Here’s what some who have recently had Christy speak to their groups had to say about the experience:
Amanda Ellis, book group organizer: “Christy spoke to our book group at the meeting after we’d read her book, and it was so much fun to be able to talk with her about different aspects of the book, and to share our perspectives with her on what we’d read. It isn’t often a book group can sit down and talk with the person who wrote the book they read, and it’s too bad – it really added a whole new dimension to our discussion.”
