As the name implies, this blog is a refuge for writers. It’s not just another blog, it’s a place to “pause” from the pressures and deadlines of the writing life. A place to break away from your daily routine and for just a few minutes find insight, inspiration or simply a brief word of encouragement about the writing life.
What else will you find here?
You’ll find helpful writing tips, fresh ideas, pithy quotes from the masters, advice for overcoming writing obstacles, you’ll learn from some writing legends, but most of all, you’ll find inspirational thoughts to ponder and apply to your writing life.
All posts are designed to achieve the singular goal of bringing you, the professional or the beginning writer, an inspirational view of the life you’ve chosen. Why? Because whether we are a seasoned pro or just getting started, we all need one thing: encouragement. The path to publication is often long, lonely and filled with disillusionment. We all may need some inspiration along the way and it is my hope you will find it here at The Writer’s Refuge.
My name is James C. Magruder. I am a novelist, blogger, advertising copywriter, executive speechwriter, magazine writer and Sr. Marketing Communications Manager in a Fortune 200 company. But all you really need to know is, like you, I feel the call to write and I have been answering that call for the last 25 years.
