Hello, and welcome to The Write Nook!
Once upon a time..
In January of 2016, 18-year-old Kayla Woodhouse had the idea to create a blog dedicated to aspiring writers to turn to for encouragement, inspiration, and education. She pitched the idea to her mom and co-writer/co-author, Kimberley Woodhouse and together they came up with the fantabulous idea of what you now see before you.
Some details about The Write Nook
The Write Nook is written for writers and aspiring authors of all ages, personalities, and genres. So step right in, don’t be frightened! Our purpose is to enlighten and encourage other writers in their creativity, pursuits, and writing careers. We have lessons on the writing craft, posts of writing prompts, giveaways, lists of resources, and much more. Our intent is to provide a site for writers to turn to when they want to learn about the writing craft, need inspiration when Writer’s Block settles in, and/or want to be involved in a community of other writers (check out our Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/thewritenook and/or join The Write Nook Community Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/769637333168173/ )
What you can expect on The Write Nook
The Write Nook will add one new post every week. We have a FANTASTIC group of authors/contributors on The Write Nook – our founders Kimberley Woodhouse and Kayla Woodhouse, as well as the amazing Darcie Gudger and awesome Becca Whittham! (Keep your eyes open for guest posts, too!) Every month we’ll be covering a specific topic on the writing craft, starting with the basics and making our way to the more complicated concepts as we go along.
Other cool features
We encourage you to take some time and check out the different pages on this site, so you are familiar with all of the content available to you.

An important note: Our posts are labeled as “lessons” – but they do not have to be read in order! Are you looking for a certain subject? Check out the “categories” widget on the sidebar or put in a search for a specific word/topic. But if you’d like to read all of the wonderful content here at The Write Nook, we encourage you to start at the very beginning (a very good place to start!) An easy way to find Lesson #1 is by clicking on the “Archives” widget on the sidebar (February, 2016 is the birth-month of The Write Nook).
We’re so glad to have you on this journey with us! Grab your pen and paper, computer, typewriter, or whatever you prefer to write with, and let’s get those words flowing!
With pen to paper,
Kimberley and Kayla Woodhouse
