UPDATES! My new writing project + how to find me!

Hello, readers! I'm hopping on here to drop a note to say that, no, I haven't abandoned Writing Belle. I simply have begun to move my op/Eds and commentaries to a new platform where I can write in thematic topics without worrying about being censored. This blog (right here!) is hosted by Google, and so I've chosen to relocate my political commentaries elsewhere. However, I'll still be writing about storytelling and posting interviews with authors and editors HERE on Writing Belle! Stay tuned for more of that on this platform. For everything else, check out Substack. 

To sign up to see all of my editorials (I write 1-2 per week, depending on how much time I have!), sign up for FREE to my Substack newsletter: 

I also want to say thank you to everyone for supporting me for all of these years! As a writer, I have grown so much, and I have particularly felt like my writing and my passion has considerably evolved over the last two years. Interestingly, I started my writing career while I was in high school and at that time, I was entirely absorbed in discovering American history and studying American politics. I dreamed up a little blog called Liberty Belle and began writing about politics when I was around 16 or 17 (most people don't know about that!). Eventually, I ended up moving into the publishing industry instead and working as a fiction author and a publicist (and a writing teacher). I decided to change my writing brand from Liberty Belle to Writing Belle. In 2018, my writing manual, Prolific: Writing a Hit Novel, included an entire section about why neutrality was the way to go - and why a writer should always avoid getting political. I've changed my opinion on that, clearly, but I would argue that I'm not arguing for politics so much as I'm arguing for moral policy, and that seems pretty common sense. Also, I no longer believe that neutrality is safe. 
It's funny that my writing career has brought me full circle into the American political landscape, whether I like it or not! 

Of course, I'm not a politician. I'm just an analyzer and a woman who gets a kick out of studying women's issues and legislation in America. It's definitely been a wake-up call from God to get involved in this "information war," as I like to call it. I prayed for a long time, asking God to show me how I could help save our country - and he simply opened the doors, again and again, for me to be involved in writing news and sharing op/Eds. 

I am still in love with writing fiction and will continue to do so. Right now, I'm working six days a week and going to school (because I'm insane), and when I'm done with school, I think my next novel will be released, as well. 

Anyway, thanks for reading and stay tuned on Writing Belle for more authors and writing content. Check out my Substack for my commentaries on policies and culture.
